The technical editing on this is pretty good. The problem for me is that the two characters don't feel like they're in the same place, and they don't interact. It's been a while since I've watched the Punisher so I couldn't tell if any color grading was done but it looked slightly off from the DD footage. The ending in particular was not terribly convincing. I don't think any better could have been done with the source material, but then again if there isn't a satisfying ending there perhaps going a different route would have worked better. Also, I think the part of DD used for the latter half of this edit is the worst part of the film, so perhaps this just isn't for me.

Nice mashup, but one of the weaker efforts of the bunch. The fight scenes from Daredevil are just terrible, so it doesn't help that a lot of the edit focusses on these battles. Still, technically it was quite well done.

Idea is interesting but the individual parts are just dragged out for only two moments where the characters interact with each other.
There is also very little thematic connection between the two storylines, it is just two guys happening to be in the city. Especially one scene in the church had me completely confused as we see the punisher in the church, then bullseye appears and fights ben affleck but I wasn't sure what had happened to the punisher.
as others have noted the ending is a pretty weak payoff - made worse imo due to the fact that the first interaction of the two works way better. Maybe the edit should have just focused on bullseye and have punisher save Daredevil

Also the videoquality was noticably worse than the rest of the shorts
