“I believe in the law. I believe in order and justice. I believe that people are by nature good. I believe that historical forces push us into conflict and without the law as a buffer between people, we would have a world of vendetta, world of violence, world of chaos. The law keeps us civilized.”
I remember watching this in a theater in the early ’00s after the late Roger Ebert praised Amanda Peet’s brief but Oscar-worthy performance. After this rewatch, I still couldn’t understand what he was talking about.
I did enjoy the moral battle between Daredevil and Nick Fury. I just wish the ending wasn’t too clean because we all know that really wasn’t how the world works.
