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.

Trivia

Composer Graeme Revell incorporated sounds to use as motifs for certain characters. For instance Bullseye has guitar undertones, while Kingpin has bass beats. See more »

Goofs

During the battle in the church, Daredevil and Bullseye dangle from a horizontal organ pipe. Such an organ pipe is very carefully balanced in the vertical position secured by only one small hook mounted on a wall bracket. Should that hook come undone, the organ pipe would fall to the ground immediately. See more »

Quotes

Elektra: Nice to meet you, Matt Murdock.
Matt Murdock: Nice to meet you, uh... I didn't get your name.
Elektra: I didn't give it.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are seen in a sequence of dark skyscrapers. There are lit windows in the skyscrapers, which turn into Braille letters which then become English letters spelling out the main cast - later on, the supporting cast and production crew are directly formed in English from the window.

Forget the theatrical version, buy the director's cut DVD instead!
1 December 2004 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

This review is for the Director's cut DVD of Daredevil. In all honesty, i liked the theatrical version of this movie. But now that i have seen the true version of this movie, the director's cut, i don't have any desire to watch the theatrical cut ever again. The director's cut is an improvement in every way. Everything makes sense now, and the characters are more fleshed out, which is a very good thing.

The DC is 30 minutes longer than the original cut, of which the new footage ranges from a whole new big subplot, and little things, that actually have more impact and and make the movie more understandable and better than you might imagine. The action scenes are way better also. The DC makes the movie into what it should've been in the first place before the studio screwed with it. I can't believe how much the studio hacked this movie up for theater..it is quite ridiculous. But now with the movie restored to it's original vision, i can fully enjoy it without the thought of something missing from it. In comparison, the only thing that the original DVD release has over this new DC DVD is it has a second bonus features/behind the scenes disc.

The DC DVD is one disc, and has a few movie trailers, a making-of featurette, and an all new audio commentary. Despite it's shortcomings in form of a second disc compared to it's counterpart, i'd choose the DC over the theatrical version any day. The DC is simply so much better. Forget what you know about the theatrical cut of the movie, and give this new DC version a chance..it is superior to the other version in every way. So give it a try, and i think you might be pleasantly surprised. Even those of you who hate the original cut.

My vote, in comparison: Theatrical version- 5.5 Director's cut version- 9.5

In closing, i'd like to thank the Director, the film editors, and everyone else who made this wonderful Director's cut DVD possible. I love the new version, and it's nice to see the Director's vision restored to this movie after nearly 1 1/2 years. Two thumbs up! R.I.P. Daredevil theatrical version!!
