“Daredevil” season 2 is now playing on Netflix, and finding flaws with it seems to inspire a lot of heated debate (see the comments section of our review). But for the faithful, the new batch of episodes deliver on the grit that has been promised, along with yet another extended fight sequence.
In season one, we had a very “Oldboy“-indebted fight scene that ran five minutes long and saw Matt Murdock inflict punishment on an unending stream of baddies (watch it here), and now for season two, our hero faces a similar showdown. This time the action starts in a hallway, but heads to a stairwell, with Daredevil still managing to beat the pulp out of all comers. It’s certainly a bit less elegant this time, with the cuts to black to maintain the aura of a “single-take” shot pretty noticeable. But nonetheless, people have been digging this one pretty hard.
Check out the fight below, and after that, dive into a 6-minute video which details all the Easter Eggs, secret cameos and references across the second season.
