Graeme Revell's score for Fox's Daredevil is a major disappointment. The film was mediocre, so I guess I shouldn't have expected much from the score. After all, the bulk of the film's music was from various artists. Anyway, the first track, "Daredevil Theme", holds your attention for about roughly 2 minutes before you feel compelled to flick on to the nexr one. "Young Matt's Father" is a nicely done piece of music but is butchered to death by being reused time and time again. "Matt Becomes Daredevil" is the second best track of the score and builds upon the theme established in the first track. "The Kingpin" is a fairly mediocre piece - it is amiable and definantly not the best villian motif yet done. "Elektra" has some nice guitar work; you can easily flick on to "Blind Justice" which starts off very well and ends abominably. "Church Battle" - don't bother listening to it. It is basically weird squeaks for 2 minutes. Anyway that piece in the church steeple was just a rip-off of the end of Batman 1989. The final track, "The Necklace", basically takes all the best motifs from the whole soundtrack and fashions the only re-listenable piece. The ending is seriously anti-climatic to make way for the rock songs.
Daredevil the score brings a variety of things to the table. Although the score does not fly as high as the new superman blockbuster, I think it contains something a little more unique and, in some senses better. The Daredevil Theme brings to life the darkness and the inner turmoil of Matt Murdock while giving the audience that well-loved superhero edge. This composer also brings to life some very melancholy songs such as Young Matt's Father. Overall, this soundtrack getts a 3 out of 5 from me.
