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

(at around 40 mins) The opening scene where Bullseye is playing darts was filmed at Ye Olde King's Head Pub in Santa Monica. Appropriately enough, the board on which he is playing is the "A-list" board, reserved for better players. See more »

Goofs

(at around 9 mins) When young Matt awakes in hospital after his original chemical accident, the vital medical equipment is not connected to him. See more »

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.
