Subject:        Daredevil Shakespearean--Kingpin on Bravo

Arriving in the brief window after "Spider-Man" and before the arrival
of "X-Men 2" and "The Hulk" (and you thought sophisticated adult drama
was dead), "Daredevil" is trying to position
itself, the press material insists, as "the most morally complex comic
book movie ever made." One of the producers even considers it "an almost
Shakespearean story," but, hey, that's Hollywood for
you.

LA Times review, February 14, 2003

As derring-do, it really doesn't. While 'Daredevil's' title role proves
to be a snug fit for Ben Affleck, the movie itself sags in all the wrong
places.

The unedited (uncensored) version of Kingpin (Macbeth in a Mexican drug
cartel) will air Feb 14 on Bravo.
