I enjoyed the first Daredevil film, especially the extended edition. When compared with other superhero movies, I think it outranks the first and third X-Men movies, both Hulk movies, all the Tim Burton Batman movies, and all Superman movies after Superman II, just to name a few. Relatively speaking that's a significant accomplishment. People will disagree with my ranking of DD here, no doubt.
All that said, I had no expectations, which is to say there was nothing in particular I expected to see in it. I read DD back in the 70's when I was a kid, so I was well aware of his origin and powers. I missed the Frank Miller DD and haven't caught up on that, but I respect Miller, especially for The Dark Knight Returns, which I do have and love.
What exactly are your alls' disappointments with the first DD film?
