Storyline

Fate deals young orphan Matt Murdock a strange hand when he is doused with hazardous waste. The accident leaves Matt blind but also gives him a heightened "radar sense" that allows him to "see" far better than any man. Years later Murdock has grown into a man and becomes a respected criminal attorney. But after he's done his "day job" Matt takes on a secret identity as "The Man Without Fear," Daredevil, the masked avenger that patrols the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen and New York City to combat the injustice that he cannot tackle in the courtroom.

Goofs

If you look closely at Colin Farrell in his opening scene in the pub, you'll see that his neck and the top of his chest are peeling. This is not a skin condition that is characteristic of Bullseye, rather it is Colin Farrell's sunburn. He had just returned from a holiday in Mexico on a boat. See more »

Quotes

[Foggy is reading a New York tabloid to Daredevil at a restaurant]
Franklin 'Foggy' Nelson: Listen to this. Eyewitnesses say that Quesada was singled out by the demonic vigilante known as the Daredevil.
Daredevil: I don't know why you read that trash.
Franklin 'Foggy' Nelson: I been hearing stories about this guy for years; there's gotta be something to it!
Daredevil: Like the alligators in the sewers?
Franklin 'Foggy' Nelson: There are alligators in the sewers! Don't ride my ass about the alligators. I got a friend in Sanitation, okay? He's seen them.

Enjoyable
12 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom, Wales) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure, why at all this movie has such negative reviews, i think it was much better than X-men 1, Hellboy, and Equally as good as Spider-man, the action scenes are awesome, Jennifer Garner is Off the Hook, she looks amazing the fiery Red head, i found Colin Farrel's Character a bit poor, but Ben Affleck plays the part really well, this movie might also make the toughest of people Fill Up, with 1 particular scene, i was surprised it happened, and disliked Farrel for a moment, But it was very Enjoyable, and i'd advise this movie for everybody to watch.

Also the Soundtrack is awesome. Possibly 1 of the best soundtracks to date.

8/10, one of the best Marvel Productions.
