The research however found that instead of being a part of the occupation. the bouncers had a neutral response. with the new bouncers being 'thrown into the deep end' . The controllers' actions involved gratuitous aggression. however. The study indicated that in 12% of the incidents the bouncers had good responses. and also depended heavily on previous familiarity with violence.

British research from the 1990s also indicates that a major part of both the group identity and the job satisfaction of bouncers is related to their self image as a strongly masculine person who is capable of dealing with – and dealing out – violence. a typical characteristic of groups that are constantly in the public eye..[37] substantial costs may be incurred by indiscriminate violence against patrons—though this depends heavily on the laws and customs of the country. sometimes bordering on hero worship. their employment income plays a lesser role in their job satisfaction.

Box office
Daredevil opened theatrically on February 14, 2003, on 3,471 screens.[18] The film took first place in its opening weekend, grossing $45,033,454. At the time, it became the second biggest February release, behind Hannibal.[34] By the second weekend the film saw a 55.1% decline in takings but managed to maintain the number one spot, beating new release Old School by $639,093.[35] By the third weekend release, Daredevil saw a further 38.5% drop in sales, and so fell to third place at the box office.[36] The film grossed over $102 million in North America, and over $76 million in the rest of the world, totalling the film's worldwide takings at just over $179 million, grossing over double its budget of $78 million.[37] Avi Arad addressed the top spot success by saying "we are five for five with record-breaking box office successes [with Blade, X-Men, Blade II then Spider-Man] and have two more Marvel releases slated for this summer [which are X2 and Hulk]. It's a testament to the broad appeal of these characters before mainstream audiences outside of the core comic fans. These super heroes have been successful within the Marvel pantheon for decades; it only makes sense that their translations to the big screen are just as fruitful."[38] Due to the film's violent scenes, Daredevil was banned in Malaysia. 20th Century Fox had appealed to Malaysia's censorship board to change its decision, hoping that the film would be due for release in Malaysia on February 27, 2003.[39] Malaysian newspaper The Star also noted that the ban was due to the film theme being "focused on the dealings of a secret society," as well as some sensuality. The article criticized the Film Censorship Board of Malaysia for having these reasons to ban the film, but at the same time allowing films such as Final Destination 2, which contained violent content, and Infernal Affairs, which focused on the dealings of a secret society, before suggesting that the board should have considered banning The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers for "having scenes containing violence using weapons and hands," a direct quotation of which the article cited as being another reason why Daredevil was banned.[40]

Reception
Daredevil received mixed reviews from critics.[41][42] Review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes reported that 45% of critics gave the film positive feedback, based on 211 reviews,[41] At the website Metacritic, which assigns its own subjective rating out of 100 to each review, the film has received an average score of 42, based on 35 reviews.[42] Film critic Roger Ebert gave the film 3 out of a possible 4 stars and called the film good, despite noting the almost typical superhero background. Of the actors, he stated that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were suitable for their roles, while Michael Clarke Duncan's presence alone was menacing. He finished by saying "I am getting a little worn out describing the origin stories and powers of superheroes […] Some of their movies, like this one, are better than others."[43] Houston Chronicle's Bruce Westbrook considered it "the best Marvel movie to date, it's as well-written and character-driven as some of today's Oscar contenders, and its story doesn't stall with hollow flamboyance."[44] The Austin Chronicle's Kimberly Jones praised the film, the actors, and felt that though an unproven director, "Johnson has just signed his meal ticket with this marriage of big brains, big brawn, and–most happily–big heart."[45] Empire's Kim Newman gave the film 3 out of 5 stars, and felt people "will like the characters more than the film," before adding that there are enough strong moments to guarantee a good viewing.[46] The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw stated that the film held "unconvincing touches" but was more enjoyable than Spider-Man and as dark as Tim Burton's Batman.[47] BBC film critic Nev Pierce believed the film had spectacular set-pieces, but felt there was no strong narrative arc to keep the viewer interested.[48] The Wall Street Journal's Joe Morgenstern considered the film to be neither original nor great but felt it maintained "many grace notes and interesting oddities."[49] The Globe and Mail's Rick Groen said the film was "not woeful, not wonderful, merely watchable."[42] The Philadelphia Inquirer's Steven Rea thought the film brought a variance of humour and violence, but felt it didn't work as well as it could have.[42] James Berardinelli felt the film was merely a satisfactory superhero film.[42] TV Guide's Frank Lovece noted that for a superhero film the characters are more grounded to reality, respectively, but also felt it was "a movie for grown-ups, not kids."[50]

Daredevil (film) Particularly negative reviews included the one by The New York Times' Elvis Mitchell, who said the film was "second-rate and ordinary,"[41] while Variety's Todd McCarthy considered it "a pretender in the realm of bona fide superheroes."[51] Time Out's Trevor Johnston praised Ben Affleck, feeling he "persuades us of the pain of sightlessness and supersensitive hearing," but also felt writer/director Johnson's construction fails all involved in the film.[52] Slate's David Edelstein believed Johnson copied a lot of Batman, and concluded by saying "that's not so bad: The movie looks best when it looks like other, better movies."[53] The Chicago Tribune's Michael Wilmington thought the film grabs the attention, but felt it does not reward it.[42] The New York Post's Lou Lumenick panned the film, describing it as a "mind-numbing, would-be comic-book franchise, which often seems as blind as its hero -- not to mention deaf and dumb."[42]

Director's cut
A director's cut of the film was announced for a spring 2004 DVD release. This version contained new additions like previously unseen footage and a removed subplot, and was to be a bit darker with an R rating. The film, released in 2.35:1 widescreen format, was released with DTS and Dolby Digital sound. The new version of the film has newly recorded commentary to accompany it, featuring Mark Steven Johnson and Avi Arad. A "Making of Director's Cut" featurette also accompanied the film. The release date of the DVD was later pushed back to November 30, 2004.[54][55] On September 30, 2008 the director's cut was released on Blu-ray.[56] The DVD release of the director's cut removed the wealth of bonus material included on the theatrical cut's DVD release, but it was restored for the Blu-ray release (although the Blu-ray release only contains the director's cut). One of the biggest changes to the film was the addition of a subplot involving a drug addict played by Coolio. While this subplot was missing from the theatrical version of the film, it is present in the novelization by Greg Cox, published in 2003. Kevin Feige commented on this version of the film, believing "the people who had other opinions [of Daredevil] will be won over by this new version."[54] Reviewers like Empire's Danny Graydon seemed to reaffirm this opinion by considering this version a "considerable improvement on the original version," notably preferring the more violent undertones, a lesser focus on the romance, and the equal focus of Daredevil and his lawyer alias Matt Murdock and the subplot involving Coolio. Some gripes still remained though, as Graydon felt Affleck did not suit himself in the Daredevil outfit, and that Michael Clark Duncan as the Kingpin was done in an over-the-top manner.[57] IGN's Jeff Otto and Andy Patrizio also deemed this version an improvement over the original. They felt this version was more loyal to the Frank Miller feel of the Daredevil world, with more focus on themes such as Murdock's struggle with his Catholic upbringing. On the whole they felt the film would be far more pleasing to the fans, and overall better than the theatrical release.[58]

Future
Kevin Feige has stated "there are many more stories to be told with old Hornhead and we'd love to tell them someday."[54] Avi Arad has also said that a sequel will begin development once the rights go from 20th Century Fox to Marvel Studios.[59] Director Mark Steven Johnson showed interest in returning to direct with the Born Again storyline, as well as suggesting Mr. Fear as a possible villain.[60] During 2004, Ben Affleck shot a cameo role for the spin-off film, Elektra, at the request of Daredevil co-star Jennifer Garner.[61] In October 2004, Affleck stated he would only return in the lead role if Fox would renegotiate to tell the darker stories of Daredevil, and showed interest in a Kevin Smith graphic novel which included Mysterio, as well as the Born Again storyline.[62] However, in November 2006 Affleck stated that he would never reprise the role, having felt "by playing a superhero in Daredevil, I have inoculated myself from ever playing another superhero... Wearing a costume was a source of humiliation for me and something I wouldn't want to do again soon."[63] It is possible that Affleck made this decision because, although met with considerable praise for his performance, he received a Razzie award for his role as Daredevil.[64]

Daredevil (film) In July 2006, Michael Clarke Duncan showed interest in returning for the role of the Kingpin, but stated that he would not be willing to gain weight as he felt "comfortable" being down to 270 pounds. However, he jokingly showed willingness to change his mind if he was offered $20 million. Duncan suggested that the character is portrayed to have been training a lot in jail in order to become faster in combat against Daredevil, also working as a way to fit his weight loss into the story.[65] Duncan would later go on to reprise his role as the Kingpin in an episode of the animated series: Spider-Man: The New Animated Series. In July 2008, Jason Statham had expressed interest in appearing as Daredevil in the future. Statham requested "just give me the chance, I would love to be Daredevil." Frank Miller commented in agreement "I think he should be Daredevil too."[66] In October 2008, 20th Century Fox executive Tom Rothman said that "a Daredevil reboot is something we are thinking very seriously about." Rothman added that "what it really needs is, it needs a visionary at the level that [The Dark Knight Trilogy director] Chris Nolan was. It needs someone, it needs a director, honestly, who has a genuine vision."[67] In February 2010, reboot news was further reported by Deadline Hollywood who announced 20th Century Fox and New Regency are looking to develop the reboot with News Corp. Vice President Peter Chernin producing and David Scarpa writing the script. Intentions are said to move forward so that the film rights to the character would not revert back to Marvel.[68] On March 15, 2011, it was announced that filmmaker David Slade would be directing the reboot,[69] but he later had to drop out due to other obligations. Fringe writer and producer Brad Caleb Kane was hired to pen the Slade-directed film.[70] Vin Diesel showed interest in playing the role of Kingpin. Later, it was announced that should a sequel or reboot not start filming by 10 October 2012, the rights to the Daredevil franchise would revert from Fox back to Marvel. In early August 2012, Fox scrambled to find a replacement for David Slade, who dropped out of the director's chair due to scheduling conflicts. The studio briefly met with Joe Carnahan, for the job—however, Carnahan said on Twitter that his pitch, described as a hard-boiled '70s thriller, had gone up in smoke. Several sources commented that Fox had given up on the reboot, and were prepared to let the rights revert to Marvel and their parent company, Disney. Marvel has stated they would love to do a Daredevil reboot, and that it was a definite possibility Marvel Studios would produce a Daredevil reboot independently should the rights revert. On October 10, 2012, the film rights reverted back to Marvel Studios.[71] On September 3, Duncan passed away, precluding him from further reprising his Kingpin role.[72][73]

Sister, Sister reunion movie
As for a Sister, Sister reunion, the twins are both game for reuniting the cast, as they said in an interview back in June 2012. They were thinking of doing a "Twins in the city" plot, like the twins in New York City.[7]

Theme song and opening sequences
Theme song
The series' original theme song was written and composed by Tim Heintz, Randy Petersen and Kevin Quinn. Season one was the only season using the full version, with the short middle instrumental portion, vocalizations and the line "Living underneath one roof, no it won't be trouble-proof" dropped in season 2, though the short instrumental and vocalizations were restored in season 3. A new theme song was used starting in Season 5, composed by Heintz, Petersen, Quinn and Kurt Farquhar, who composed the music score for most of the series (save for Season 3, when the score was composed by Paul A. Kreiling), and performed by Tia and Tamera Mowry. The season 5 version of the theme began with the end of the original theme prior to the start of the theme song. An instrumental version of the final theme was used as a closing theme for the final two seasons, though with the exception of the episode "Designer Genes", it was generally played over a blooper reel during the closing credits.

Opening titles
The opening sequence used in the first two seasons, designed by Twin Art, opens with the sound of two spanks and crying babies over a black screen as animated crying babies appear with the word "separated" between them, then showing Ray and Lisa each holding babies representing Tamera and Tia with the word "adopted" appearing between both. The main cast are shown in front of a white background with various animations around them, ending with Tia, Tamera, Ray and Lisa at a couch with an animated roof over it (pushed overhead by Ray), which morphs into the title logo. The sequence was shortened with the theme song in season two and modified to include Marques Houston as Roger, who became a contract cast member that season (Houston, as Roger, is shown peeking from an animated door which Tia and Tamera promptly close on him). Seasons 3 and 4 used a computer-animated sequence by Pittard-Sullivan, with the main cast's video headshots in a stop-motion effect, opening with two babies drifting away from each other into two backgrounds: one, the city (which is actually the pre-September 11, 2001 Manhattan skyline, despite the fact the series was set in Detroit) and the other, a country road with the word "separated" between them, then showing Ray and Lisa each holding babies in a similar manner as the previous sequence with a rotating "adopted", then showing the cast in front of different backdrops (some which include cutouts of objects). It ends with the cast (sans Marques Houston) walking into each

Sister, Sister (TV series) other, then getting themselves together over changing cloud backdrops, one which features two roadsigns, before the title logo appears. The cast's surnames are animated and in a variant of the show's logotype. This was the only time the intro remained exactly the same, though by season four, the intro became a bit outdated as Tia and Tamera dropped the wavy hair, tams and plaid outfits for trendier fashions and Roger stopped wearing braids. The final two seasons used a music video-style sequence, designed by Paramount Digital Design; Marques Houston remained in the sequence despite his appearances on the series decreasing midway through the fifth season, and Houston was replaced in the sequence by RonReaco Lee and Deon Richmond for the sixth season. Because virtually the same sequence was used as the season before, viewers may notice that in the final part of the second version of the sequence before the title logo when the cast dances together that Richmond and Lee do not appear in the black-and-white shots and are digitally inserted in the regular shots with Tia and Tamera Mowry, Tim Reid and Jackée Harry.

Syndication
U.S. broadcast and cable syndication
After being picked up by The WB in 1995, reruns of the first two seasons of Sister, Sister were broadcast in early primetime as part of the network's then-newly launched Sunday night lineup during the 1995-1996 season, in addition to the first-run episodes of the series that aired on the WB's Wednesday night schedule.[1] The series has been aired on various broadcast television networks in the U.S. after the series finale on The WB Television Network. From September 1998 to September 2002, Paramount Domestic Television (now CBS Television Distribution) distributed the series to Fox, WB and UPN network affiliates around the United States, airing depending on market. The N aired reruns of Sister, Sister from April 2002 until April 2004. Disney Channel aired edited versions of the series from September 9, 2002 until May 28, 2007. From June 11, 2007 to April 9, 2010, reruns of the show ran on ABC Family, which is a sister channel to Disney Channel via the Walt Disney Company division Disney/ABC Television Group.[8] When the series first debuted on ABC Family, it replaced Step by Step, but was knocked off two weeks later then returned in the early morning. The series has also aired on BET from July 2009 to January 10, 2010, initially airing on weekdays, before moving to Saturday mornings when the series returned after a brief break; the series was slated to return to BET on Saturday mornings starting in October 2010, but other than a special marathon that aired in September 2010, this did not [9] occur. The show also aired on WGN America from September 11, 2007 until May 2009, first on weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings, then moved to a weeknight graveyard slot.[10] Incidentally, the series aired in first-run form on WGN from the show's move to The WB in 1995 until the series ended in 1999, shortly before WGN ceased to carry WB network programming on its national superstation feed (Sister, Sister, along with 7th Heaven, The Parent 'Hood and The Wayans Bros. are the only WB series to air in both first-run broadcast and off-network syndication on WGN America). As of August 2009, Gospel Music Channel began airing the series. The series also began airing on Centric since early 2011, first airing as a part of the network's weekday lineup, then airing sporadically in marathon stunts; it currently airs weekday middays. In promotion of the series Tia & Tamera in 2012, Style began airing reruns of Sister, Sister. Disney Channel airings had most episodes edited for content deemed by the channel as unsuitable for its pre-teen audience; the edited Disney Channel versions were also the syndication package of the show that aired on sister network ABC Family, with the exception of the season two episode "Tattoo" that was omitted from Disney Channel airings. GMC also airs episodes with content the channel deems inappropriate usually muted or removed entirely, ranging from mild suggestive dialogue said by Roger to tame phrases such as "shut up", "butt", "dumb" and "pervert"; whereas the airings on other channels were the original syndicated prints.

The film received positive reviews from critics with an 80% "Certified Fresh" approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.[3] Roger Ebert gave the film 3 and a half stars out of four, writing "The film is a shade over three hours long. I appreciated the extra time, which allows us to feel the passage of prison months and years."[4] Forbes commentator Dawn Mendez referred to the character of John Coffey as a "'magic Negro' figure"—a term coined by Spike Lee to describe a stereotypical fictional black person depicted in a fictional work as a "saintly, nonthreatening" person whose purpose in life is to solve a problem for or otherwise further the happiness of a white person.[5] Lee himself berated the character as one of several "super-duper, magical Negro[es]" depicting a skewed version of the black male, claiming it was due to the prominence of white decision makers in the media companies.[6]

It was released on July 22, 2005, in the United States, and was nominated for three awards, including the Teen Choice Award.

The film's plot revolves around the struggle of Ewan McGregor's character to fit into the highly structured world he lives in and the series of events that unfold when he questions how truthful that world really is. The film cost $126 million to produce. It earned only $36 million at the United States box office, but earned $127 million overseas, for a $162 million worldwide total.

Plot
In the year 2019, Lincoln Six Echo and Jordan Two Delta live with others in an isolated compound. Their community is governed by a set of strict rules. The residents believe that the outer world has become too contaminated for human life with the exception of one island. Every week a lottery is conducted and the winner gets to leave the compound to live on the island. Lincoln begins having dreams that include memories that he knows are not from his own experiences. Dr. Merrick, a scientist who runs the compound, is concerned and places probes in Lincoln's body to monitor his cerebral activity and record what he sees. While secretly visiting an off-limits power facility in the basement where his friend, technician James McCord, works, Lincoln discovers a live moth in a ventilation shaft, leading him to deduce that the outside world is not really contaminated. Lincoln follows the moth to another section, where he discovers that the "lottery" is actually a guise to remove inhabitants from the compound, where the "winner" is then used for organ harvesting, surrogate motherhood, and other purposes for each one's sponsor, who is identical to them in appearance. Merrick learns that Lincoln has discovered the truth, which forces Lincoln to escape. Meanwhile, Jordan has been selected for the island. Lincoln and Jordan manage to escape the facility, where they emerge in an Arizona desert. He explains the truth to her, and they realize that all the residents are clones of wealthy and/or desperate sponsors, who are kept ignorant of the real world. Merrick hires French mercenary Albert Laurent to hunt them down, and explains that he needs the clones conscious in the compound, as otherwise their organs inevitably fail. Lincoln and Jordan find McCord in a bar. McCord gives them the name of Lincoln's sponsor in Los Angeles, and helps them to the Yucca railway station, before being killed by the mercenaries. Jordan's sponsor, model Sarah Jordan, is in a coma because of a car accident. Lincoln's sponsor, Tom Lincoln, explains some of the situation, causing Lincoln to realize that he has gained some of Tom's memories. Tom agrees to help expose the truth about the organ harvesting, but secretly informs Merrick about the situation by telephone. Merrick sends the mercenaries to their location, but Lincoln tricks Laurent into killing Tom, allowing him to assume Tom's identity. Merrick, having realized a cloning defect was responsible for Lincoln's memories and behavior, decides to eliminate the four newest generations of clones. Lincoln and Jordan, however, plan to liberate their fellow clones. Posing as Tom, Lincoln returns to the compound in order to destroy the holographic projectors that conceal the outside world from the clones. With help from Laurent, who has moral qualms about the clones' treatment, Merrick is killed and the clones are freed. The film ends with the clones seeing the outside world for the first time.

Cast
• Ewan McGregor as Lincoln Six Echo, a clone of Tom Lincoln, a Scottish automotive experimental designer, who sponsored his clone for a new liver since his viral hepatitis is destroying his liver.

Echo spoke with a American accent, while Lincoln spoke with Ewan McGregor's actual Scottish accent. • Scarlett Johansson as Jordan Two Delta, clone of Sarah Jordan, a supermodel for Calvin Klein (among other brands), who also has an apparently three year old son. About to be harvested for organs as her sponsor was severely injured in a car accident, but escapes with Lincoln, with whom she has taken up a friendship. The real Jordan is never seen on-screen, only in advertisements, but, it is stated later that Sarah Jordan died while in her coma. • Sean Bean as Dr. Merrick, owner of Merrick Biotech and creator of the cloning technology • Djimon Hounsou as Albert Laurent, a French private military contractor and GIGN veteran hired to bring back Lincoln Six Echo and Jordan Two Delta • Steve Buscemi as James "Mac" McCord, a maintenance supervisor at Merrick Biotech and friend of Lincoln Six Echo
