DEVIL OF HELL'S KITCHEN
Show starts with a blast! First ten minutes and fight scene in, I was hooked.
Fight scenes are the best offering from the show and also the best kind what I've seen in any Tv shows ever. Makers have clearly put their thoughts and time in them. They look like from some high budget action movie. Choreocraphy is precise and punches bloody. Hell, the whole show is pretty brutal when I think of it.
Writing and storytelling is average what you can expect from a show like this, but what really is the best part, including those great fight scenes, is the characters.
Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson "AKA Kingpin" Fisk steals the show every time when his on the screen. He clearly enjoyed playing the part and some times you can see maybe too much.
Same goes to Jon Bernthal. Only few episodes in on second season and im already rooting for Frank Castle The Punisher. Even in those scenes when he's fighting against Murdock. Maybe because his entrance was bad ass and awesome in every level, or maybe because he's one of my top favorite comic book characters (Thomas Jane's The Punisher (2004), one of my favorite comic book movies is amazing and perfectly made). I like the character because he's just a merciless and expressionless executioner and Bernthal captured that nicely. Im getting chills every time when he's on screen. Bernthal is coming a long way since playing Shane on The Walking Dead and gradually taking a spot on my favorite actors list.
So it's clear that Charlie Cox, Daredevil, is left in the shadows of these two great actors. Elder Henson, Deborah Ann Woll are Ok and also Scott Glenn's few episode appearance was enjoyable acting work to watch.
It only remains to be seen what Elodie Yung's Electra Natchios is offering us...
