As a fan of some of Uncanny Antman's previous work, I couldn't resist checking this out. Also it had been ages since I'd last seen it and I'm a fan of the character.
From what I can remember of the original and from what I read in Antman's description of changes, there is a mix of good and bad here from a story standpoint. The tone of the story seems much improved, more serious, realistic, & dramatic. He did a great job cutting out the cheese. Unfortunately the story really falls apart after Electra's death. It may well be that this is an unavoidable consequence of cutting out the cheese, or maybe that is the case in the original too. But in either case the end feels extremely rushed and unfulfilling. They make taking down the Kingpin seem about as easy as taking down a local thug, and Bullseye has no conclusion.
I applaud Antman's efforts on this. It is a great alternative to the original, but it also makes me suspect that there may be no way to salvage the story in this movie.
I only watched the SD avi of this, but based on that I would say the video and audio quality and editing are excellent if not flawless. It isn't 5.1, but that's fine. Its an older movie.
i never saw the theatrical version of daredevil but what i hear was that it wasn't very good and the extended version was a improvement. i've only ever seen this once and that was a good 5 years ago so i can't really compare this fanedited version to the extended cut. all i will say is that uncanny antman abilities as a faneditor are of a very high standard as the cuts and changes throughout the edit are done really well with no harsh cuts to be seen nor heard
the edit however i do feel suffers from having to much cut thus the edit has a feeling much like the theatrical version that the studio has interfered with the film. an example would be the relationship between matt and Elektra they meet at a coffee shop to which elektra walks away without acknowledging matt to much, the next scene they share together is a romantic date. it just smacks as something being cut that would tie the two scenes together. this i feel is a problem throughout the edit, i didn't feel the elektra character was developed enough, it just seemed all of a sudden she's an ass kicking heroin out for revenge.
overall i'm not a huge fan of the daredevil character i'd give the extended version a 7/10 though as i mentioned it has been a while since i saw it and so i maybe a little generous. i don't feel this edit improves on that version but it is a extremely well put together edit that for me the overall narrative suffers from to much being cut.
