I liked Daredevil mostly but Elektra was dumbed down in the same way as Wolverine.
I don't know that "dumbed down" is the right word. There was certainly something
had but Elektra
didn't but I can't quite describe it.
It also didn't help that Daredevil
was a relatively realistic movie (for being a movie about a blind vigilante ninja who fights a deranged Irish marksman & fucks a ninja). Then Elektra
suddenly added in all of these overtly fantastical elements, from the Kimaguri that resurrected her to the guy with the magic animal tatoos. It's a jarring change in tone, kinda like going from Pitch Black
to The Chronicles of Riddick.
I do think Cap's army helmet looked way better than his dodgy cowl though.
Agreed. But then, I find myself in a constantly evolving relationship as far as my opinions on Captain America's movie costumes. Right now, I think the one for The Avengers
looks a bit too silly and lacks the grit & texture of his previous costume. But I suspect once I actually get to see it in the movie, I'll like it.
