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

While working on this movie, actor/director Jon Favreau began discussions with Marvel over what would eventually become Iron Man (2008), which is the first of their Cinematic Universe. Once the Daredevil rights reverted back to Marvel, they announced plans to start a series that is part of the same Cinematic Universe. 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

Daredevil: I waited outside the Olympic for my father. In some ways, I'm still waiting. Nobody cared much about the death of a washed-up prizefighter... nobody but me.

Directer's Cut made it sooooo much better
5 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As I titled this, I really enjoyed the movie since I am comic nerd, but I rated this as a 5 out of 10. I got the Directer's Cut for Christmas and OH MY GOD it made this movie so much better. The subplot with Coolio really rounds out the character's of Matt and Foggy and little scenes added back in here and there like Matt's rituals after patrol and in the morning, and the extended version of him and Elektra on the roof before the rain made part of the ending make more sense. One thing I really enjoyed was the additional time to developing the Kingpin and making him really seem like a bad guy helped a lot. All in all whoever made the call to cut all this stuff from the movie should be fired from the studio because the theatrical release was a butchery and a farce. I felt bad having to admit that I didn't like the movie too much at first, but now I can tell people how much it kicked a$$ (didn't know if curses were allowed).
