Goofs

In a scene between between Matt Murdock and Elektra on the roof of Murdock's apartment building, actor Charlie Cox's eyes move back and forth as he makes eye contact with actress Elodie Yung, as is a common for people with sight. However, since Matt Murdock is totally blind and can only "see" via sonar, his eyes would not act in this manner. See more »

Season 2: Slow start with some weak elements, but mostly enjoyable, strong and violent as it escalates well
2 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like many, I was pleasantly surprised by Daredevil when I watched it last year; considering what it is, it was better than it probably deserved to be. The return of the second season made me wonder if it could not only deliver, but do so under the pressure of raised expectations. The promotion of the season seemed to feature heavily on two characters whom I don't have a great deal of love for in their cinematic ventures. Punisher was never really made to work for me (and a violent fan film seemed to be considered the best outing he has had), while Elektra's film is the reason I have seen the Assault on Precinct 13remake (I walked out of the former halfway and went into anything else that was about to start). So I was not caught up in the hype, but open to it repeating what it did in the first season.

It does this regarding the brutality of the show, and it nicely keeps the darker and violent material that marked out its action. This aspect it rides well and lets the events of the narrative do enough to get from one strong scene to the next. In doing this it is mostly engaging and with good forward motion. This is not to say that the show does more than this, but it works on this level. The in-between moments are not as good though, and there is a lack of character and substance in the show: relationships, motivations, etc – these didn't feel particularly rooted in anything.

As plotting though, the pieces are all moved around pretty well. Some of it doesn't work that well – probably too much truth be told, but mostly it creates its own world in a way that is slick enough and violent enough to hold the attention. The development of The Hand and other such matters tended to blur a bit for me, and made me hanker for the simplicity of the first season, but it still works. The cast is solid but not amazing. I like Cox in the lead but he maybe could have done more. Bernthal's Punisher is good, while Yung is as good as her material lets her be. Conversely Woll and Henson are mostly so-so, but again this is partly their material (although Henson is probably my least favorite part of the show).

Season 2 is not a great one, but it has a lot to like, and these elements carry it through the aspects which are not as good as they are polished to appear.
