Somewhere, Frank Miller is weeping.
And somewhere (most likely New Jersey), Kevin Smith is claiming that this is the best comic adaptation since The Rocketeer.

I saw it last night. It was good. Not great, but I was entertained. Not as good as Spiderman, surely, but hey. It's a supehero movie. Whaddya want, Citizen Kane?

I'm a bit surprised. Most of the reviews I've read have been moderately positive.

Love Daredevil, the comic. Hate Ben Affleck.

I loved it, but I've got no problem with Affleck.

I really liked it, and Frank Miller can't say a word until he apologises for "Dark KNight Strikes Again"

You didn't like it? I thought it was entertaining and I was pleasantly surprised by Affleck. If you take it for what it is, it's not terrible. I thought it was neat to see the characters come to life like that.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, people - so listen up: "Mmmm, Jennifer Garner."
There, case closed.

I caught it on Saturday and it wasn't a bad movie. My biggest complaint was that the action scenes were a touch too dark to see well.
It's a fun little action movie I'd put on level with the "Scorpion King" and "XXX." As long as you don't expect too much, you should enjoy it.

Miller has a cameo, Bullseye kills him with three pencils for ruining Batman and Robocop.
So does Stan Lee (it seems to be written into his contract these days) So does Smith. I liked the occasional artist namedropping: Quesada, Kirby
Somebody explain to me how the hell Leland Orser survived the movie?!

There was also a big John Romita plug on the boxing arena marquee.
The movie was so-so. Affleck was Affleck and Jennifer Garner was RAWR! Hope she gets her own flick out of it.

I don't get it. I thought Will Kane killed Frank Miller.

Had the choice to see it or "Chicago" on Friday night. I chose well. (Or, rather, my beloved spouse chose well.)

This is Frank Miller 2, obviously
February 17, 2003 10:39 AM
I liked it. I agree with the posts that you just have to go into it not expecting too much....
February 17, 2003 01:22 PM
Also "Jose Quesada", Miller, Bendis etc...
Just about the entire staff of marvel comics was present or name-dropped somewhere.

Ooooooohhhh, Jennifer Garner!
Now what was that movie about?

I liked it, truth be told. It's definitely missing something, though - a spark that animated Spiderman and the Keaton Batman flicks just isn't here. But I don't think it's the actors' fault. the script is just not quite there and the direction is somewhat flat. I'd certainly give it a better thann a C-.
