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

When Daredevil is chasing Jose Quesada into the subway a shot from the stairway shows that the digital clock hanging from the ceiling which shows when the next train will be arriving reads 1:58 then 1:57 then 1:56. Then in the quick next shot from the tunnel zooming in on Jose hiding behind a pillar, the display reads 1:37 then 1:36 then 1:35 and 1:34. The clock skips 19 seconds. See more »

One of Hollywood's best recent comic book movies.
27 November 2004 | by crowrobotSee all my reviews

'Daredevil' is a comic book movie that, although the source material is not as well known as 'Spider-Man" or 'X-Men', is pretty good in and of itself. I've never read the comic book, but I do know the character, and I was quite surprised at how good this movie was. The film begins with the origin of Daredevil: Young Matt Murdock is blinded by a radioactive substance that, although he can no longer see, amplifies his other four senses: touch, taste, smell, and hear. We flash-forward to the present day, and Matt (Ben Affleck) now leads a double life as both a lawyer and Daredevil, a vigilante who cracks down hard on the city's criminals. Matt soon gets entangled in a murder plot involving the beautiful Elektra (Jennifer Garner), the Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan) of New York's criminal underworld, and Kingpin's assassin Bullseye (Colin Farrell), who boasts, "I never miss." Overall, the film is consistently entertaining, with both high-adrenaline action scenes and quieter, more dramatic ones. All the performances are excellent: Affleck, who I never saw in a movie before this, is perfect as the tortured soul who is Matt Murdock and Daredevil. Jennifer Garner is also great as love interest Elektra, and one of the movie's best scenes involves a playful fight between Matt and Elektra in the park when he wants to know her name. Colin Farrell is electrifying as the cocky and arrogant Bullseye, and we actually get to hear Farrell's native Irish accent, which he almost never uses in his other movies. Michael Clarke Duncan is an enormous presence as the film's main villain, and I was constantly thinking: He's huge! Joe Pantoliano has a nice supporting role as Ben Urich, a reporter who publishes stories about Daredevil, and Jon Favreau is humorous as Matt's legal partner. All in all, 'Daredevil' is one of the best comic book movies since the original 'Batman'. 10/10.
