A completely different movie to the cinema cut - awesome.
on 12 January 2017
I like the original DareDevil movie, I guess that puts me in a minority, but this version, the directors cut is a much superior film. It's 30 minutes longer than the original, but instead of just bloating out the film, the additional 30 minutes adds so many more facets to the film; Matt Murdock is now a more defined and distinct character instead of the 'filler' he was in the cinema cut, he helps define the morals and motivations of the character. It's darker as well, the fight scenes are longer with real pain at the end (much like the TV series) and the there is a proper narrative / story to the film now with clear progress and resolution. The added subplot, featuring Coolio as a man framed for murder, ties together a lot of the loose ends of the original cut, demonstrates what the Matt Murdock character does when he is not DareDevil and fleshes out not just the main characters but the second line support, such as the Jon Favreau character. In this version you get a much better ending, with a longer, grittier fight between DD and Kingpin (another character that is developed more).
OK, you still have to put up with the Colin Farrell 'Bullseye', overacting and mugging to the camera at every opportunity - but that aside, this is the film that should have been released.
Delivery was very prompt, arriving 2 days before the scheduled date so I would certainly buy from this supplier again.
