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

In the comics, Bullseye wears a blue and white costume. This wasn't used in the film, in keeping with its realistic tone. Although at some point in the film, he tells Fisk that he wants a costume, he's never seen in one. See more »

Goofs

When Kingpin is talking with Bullseye, he has a cane in his hand as he walks over to his cabinet to get a drink. When he opens the cabinet, the cane is nowhere in sight. After Bullseye spears Kingpin's olive with a pencil, the cane is magically back in his hand. See more »

Quotes

Franklin 'Foggy' Nelson: Look at me, Matt. I'm a 'Plus One'. Plus Ones don't get anywhere by themselves. They need somebody to bring them. That's why it's 'plus one'!

Excellent cast makes this a terrific story
20 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

I give DareDevil high grades, 8/10, strongly due to the excellent casting. Affleck is a terrific DareDevil who seems to exude confidence as a lawyer, but then exudes pain as a tortured soul. Look for his father, the boxer, who I remember from Officer and a Gentlemen. Jennifer Garner is another good casting as the sexy Elektra. But the stars really are Colin Farrell who plays the totally lunatic assassin BullsEye to the T. And Paul Michael Duncan steals the show as Kingpin.

Every time DD goes back out to fight the bad guys, you feel for his pain, like his father who fought against the mob way, and had the courage to stand up for what really mattered to him. DD does the same, in a similar high stakes game of cat and mouse with Kingpin and BullsEye.

The mood is dark and somber. The "sight" of DD is artfully depicted. The story evolves so in the end, you are rooting for the good guys to take down the bad guys, and you are not sure if that's possible.

I'm surprised there was never a sequel because this movie delivered. An interesting story, excellent casting, and solid acting make this the movie you should watch if you are in the mood to see one of those good ole good vs. bad guy films, a la Death Wish or other vigilante shows like The Equalizer. Hence, my 8/10. Enjoy.
