Daredevil Season 3 is the first 10/10 entry being reviewed on my site. Season 3 masterfully dove into a broken and lost Matt Murdock after the explosive events of "The Defenders". Here we see
Charlie Cox's Matt, who has always been extremely strong in his faith, have it shaken to it's core and nearly broken entirely. His faith in God, his friends, his allies, even his purpose were all extremely tested and for the first half of Daredevil we see a Matt so dark and brooding you would think it were a DC show.
Besides the fascinating exploration of Matt, season 3 also introduces some key new characters in Ben Poindexter, Ray Nadeem and Sister Maggie. Ben Poindexter, aka Bullseye, was played to perfection by Wilson Bethel. He brought to life an extremely mentally unstable, deadly and skilled character who even put fear in the "Man without fear".
Joanne Whalley's "Sister Maggie" had the joy of having one of the most captivating story arcs. Playing Matt's estranged mother and who's reemergence fueled the fire that burned within him of anger and abandonment even more to where it almost consumed him.
Jay Ali's "Special Agent Ray Nadeem" was a great addition as well, playing a federal agent who means well but is no match for the will of Wilson Fisk. And speaking of Fisk, somehow Vincent D'Onofrio keeps making Fisk better and better. With a demanding performance that is so true to character it's scary. Fisk steals every scene he's in easily and we even see Fisk slowly turn into the character we all know and love to hate "Kingpin". Also, hearing Daredevil actually called Daredevil instead of the dreadfully long "The Devil of Hells Kitchen" and hearing Fisk called "Kingpin" is more satisfying than one might think. Seaon 3 also dove more into already established characters like Karen, Foggy, and even Karen's boss Mitchell Ellison, which was a nice touch.
Season 3 offered the most ambitious "Hallway Scene" ever done with a 10 minute long hallway fight that somehow put to shame the Hallway fights from the previous seasons. Season 3 had the most brutal and amazingly choreographed fights that we've seen, great dialogue and acting, and a flawless story line. I was so glad that we actually see Matt fall and manage to get back up unlike the other netflix counter parts, like Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Who also found their characters being broken, losing their way, but they never really found their way back. I'm glad Matt found his way back, thus giving us a complete story of redemption.
In all season 3 is a 10/10 worthy addition to the Daredevil Saga and I'm looking forward to the future.
Aside from music I have a deep love for film and television. I love movies and here you can check out my opinion on various movies and shows that release, if you want an everyman's opinion.
