Buy it... only if you are a fanatic collector of the Daredevil concept and appreciate even the least engaging variants on the superhero film music formula.

Avoid it... if you prefer your superhero scores to feature a memorable, superior theme and interesting, sustained action cues.

Revell
Revell
Daredevil: (Graeme Revell) The public's desire for supernatural heroes once again guided studios in the early 2000's. After Batman, The Shadow, and The Phantom breezed through theaters in the previous decade, the comic-to-screen stars of the early 21st Century included a resurgent Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, and then Daredevil, a hero with the twist of having a disability in his real life guise. Adapted from Marvel Comics' long-running concept, Mark Steven Johnson's vision of Daredevil failed to gain the illustrious following of the kind that Spider-Man and X-Men have both experienced, thus causing whatever initial indication of a franchise to fizzle quickly. It did allow for Jennifer Garner's character of Elektra Natchios to be spun off into her own feature film, not to mention a tabloid press following in relation to her attachment to Daredevil's title actor, Ben Affleck. The composers of the music for these comic book superheroes have rotated between many of the top names in the industry, often producing at least average, if not enjoyable scores for these films. Graeme Revell was perhaps the most widely seasoned composer to tackle this genre in the time just preceding 2003, having composed for action and adventure films in a wide range of instrumental and electric sounds. He is an unpredictable composer, sometimes bordering on the verge of brilliance and at other times performing a balancing act between the downright strange and the completely unlistenable. Like other films of the genre that came before, Daredevil would fit a certain formula that composers typically try to adhere to, and Revell followed those lines to an extent. The challenge with superhero scores is to follow that formula without making the music into a series of cliches that could damage the film. Conversely, scores that try to be too stylish, in essence an attempt to reinvent the genre in a more contemporary fashion, can be problematic as well. The latter is an affliction that Revell suffers in Daredevil, striving for a postmodern kind of superhero score that fails to really extend the genre in an effective new direction while also, unfortunately, losing some of that good old fashioned dramatic appeal along the way.
