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

Claudine Farrell: The woman on the answering machine is Colin Farrell's sister and On-set Assistant, who also appears in the pub scene when Bullseye is introduced. See more »

Goofs

In all her battles, Elektra uses her sais in a very incorrect manner. She has her fingers in between the prongs, which eliminates the sai's primary purpose, which is to trap an opponent's weapon. The way she holds her sais actually puts her fingers in danger. Plus, the sais are blunt weapons, not sharp. See more »

Quotes

[Bullseye has used airline peanuts to suffocate an annoying passenger]
Flight Attendant: Can I get you anything before we land?
Bullseye: More peanuts... please.

Alternate Versions

During post-production, 20th Century Fox UK sought and was given advice about classification from the BBFC. After receiving that advice, the company chose to make cuts to the film for release in the UK and as a result the UK cinema version differs from the US cinema version. The changes occur in two scenes:
  • in the fight between Elektra and Bullseye the UK version lacks all sight of a dagger sticking through Elektra's hand and all sight of her removing the dagger from her hand.
  • Secondly, in the fight between Daredevil and Kingpin the UK version lacks a headbutt and has the sound of breaking bones partially obscured by a crack of thunder. For the home video release, 20th Century Fox submitted the uncut version and the BBFC passed it with no cuts. Therefore, home video/DVD releases in the UK are uncut.

Director's cut is a good superhero movie
15 February 2014 | by sserafimescu-541-914731See all my reviews

I have recently seen the Daredevil Director's Cut, and was surprised - the movie is pretty entertaining and well played. It even has some memorable poetic scenes. I believe Ben Affleck lends more depth and plausibility to Daredevil than Christian Bale did to his monosyllabic Batman. Collin Farrell delivers an intriguing and funny superhero movie villain (a rare treat, that was later brought to perfection by his friend Heath). Michael Clarke Duncan and Jennifer Garner are, each in their own way, beautiful to behold, and perform well in their archetypal roles. Overall, if you enjoy superhero movies and skipped this one, see it - just make sure to get the Director's Cut.
