Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Darker than its popular comic-book predecessor Spider-Man, the $80 million extravaganza Daredevil was packaged for maximum global appeal, its juvenile plot beginning when 12-year-old Matt Murdock is accidentally blinded shortly before his father is murdered. Later an adult attorney in New York's Hell's Kitchen, Murdock (Ben Affleck) uses his remaining, superenhanced senses to battle crime as Daredevil, the masked and vengeful "man without fear," pitted against dominant criminal Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan) and the psychotic Bullseye (Colin Farrell), who can turn almost anything into a deadly projectile. Daredevil is well matched with the dynamic Elektra (Jennifer Garner), but their teaming is as shallow as the movie itself, which is peppered with Marvel trivia and cameo appearances (creator Stan Lee, Clerks director and Daredevil devotee Kevin Smith) and enough computer-assisted stuntwork to give Spidey a run for his money. This is Hollywood product at its most lavishly vacuous; die-hard fans will argue its merits while its red-leathered hero swoops and zooms toward a sequel. --Jeff Shannon

Special Features

The Daredevil two-DVD set has plenty to please both film and comic fans. The best feature is an hourlong collection of interviews of people who worked on the comic book, from Stan Lee to Frank Miller to Kevin Smith. (Yes, sharp-eyed fans: the Elektra-Bullseye showdown was closely based on Daredevil #181.) On the film side, director-screenwriter Mark Steven Johnson and producer Gary Foster's commentary track provides background info and some fawning over Jennifer Garner, a text commentary provides more trivia and inside jokes, and an enhanced viewing mode offers production-design featurettes. Most prominently among a bunch of other features, another hourlong documentary goes behind the shooting of the film, and Garner tries to keep a straight face during her screen test. (She got the job.) --David Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars Director's Due Aug. 12 2006
Format:DVD
This is the film that made Marvel begin (with Iron Man in 2008) to produce films because of interference from the studios. This cut is so much better than the theatrical version and does tend to lean in the Frank Miller direction which is what it should have done in the first place. The Murdock side story (with Coolio) makes the whole trying to find out who the Kingpin really is more interesting. You can't fault the director because he did stick to the comics and some of the dialogue used in the Elektra death scene is straight out of issue #181. The fight scenes are more brutal especially between the Kingpin and Daredevil and the romance aspect was trimmed down making this much darker and grittier. My only problem with both versions was Colin Ferrell as Bullseye and the Marvel trend toward an MTV style soundtrack when this film would have done well with a great score instead.

This is not Spiderman or X-Men but still a much better film than it is given credit for.

3.0 out of 5 stars IM DAREDEVIL! Dec 3 2004
By Trauma
Format:DVD
A boy blinded by toxic waste becomes endowed with sonar-like abilities and the wonderfull gift to defy gravity.
Yes its a super hero movie that shamelessly apes Tim Burtons Batman and Raimis Spider-Man.
Daredevil has allways been to me Marvels answer to Batman which isnt bad just obvious so it becomes a matter of preference which hero you like better and since Batman has gone through so many makeovers whilst DD has stayed allmost the same over the years im more likely to side with DareDevil.
The movie looks and feels like a comic book but is brave and flawed all the same.
I dont like Ben Afflec or Jennifer Garner or Micheal Clark Duncan or that idiot who played Bullseye so Daredevil should have been the worst movie ive ever seen but it wasnt.
The above actors chew scenery here like termites on freshly cut oak but despite the uneven pacing and unlikely choice of actors it serves as a culty bit of goodness that I enjoyed watching.
Enter the directors cut a much longer Daredevil with a tad more violence but the big difference is the subplot of a murdered prostitute and the man accused of killing her(Coolio?!?) who Matt Murdock(DD)is convinced didnt do it.Sadly this bit does make the movie drag a little more and it really doesnt work once the crime is solved towards the end of the film.
All in all Daredevil is a noble attempt to give the devil his due and Marvel has done worse lately dont even get me started on The 2nd failed Punisher adaptation so enter with an open mind and lowered expectations and you should be all right.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MOVIE TO BRING YOU TO LIFE Aug. 12 2004
By jason
Format:DVD
I APPROACHED THIS MOVIE VERY CAUTIOUSLY, EXPECTING IT TO FOLLOW IN THE TRADITION OF BAD SUPERHERO MOVIES, SPIDERMAN,XMEN,BATMAN AND ROBIN,ETC. UNLIKE THE PREVIOUS BAD EFFORTS, DAREDEVIL RETURNS TO THE DARK AND BREATHTAKING FORMULA OF THE EARLY TIM BURTON MOVIES BATMAN AND BATMAN RETURNS. THOUGH DIRECTOR MARK STEVEN JOHNSONS STYLE IS MUCH MORE MODERN AND GRIMY THAN BURTONS, BOTH DIRECTORS CERTAINLY KNOW HOW TO TAKE THIS SORT OF MOVIE SERIOUSLY. FIRST OF ALL THE ACTING IS BRILLIANT. PART OF WHAT MAKES THESE MOVIES FAIL IS THE ACTORS UNDERESTIMATING THE AUDIENCE, IE GEORGE CLOONEY. BEN AFFLECK IS PERFECTLY SUITED TO THE ROLE OF DAREDEVIL, AND MICHAEL CLARK DUNCAN IS ALSO WELL CASTED AS KINPIN. THE REAL SHOW STEALERS HERE ARE JENNIFER GARNER AS ELEKTRA AND COLIN FARRELL AS BULLSEYE, WHO WITHOUT A DOUBT SHARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE SCENE IN THE MOVIE, EXAMPLE: HOW MANY SUPERHEROES DIE ON THEIR FIRST NIGHT OUT? PERHAPS THE MOST WISE DECISION IN THIS FILM IS THAT THE SUPERHEROES DONT ACT LIKE SUPERHEROES AND MORE LIKE PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO DO STUFF VERY WELL AND OUR CONSTANTLY TRAINING. MARK STEVEN JOHNSON ALSO KNOWS HOW TO ADD IMPACT TO SCENES, OFTEN USING MUSIC FROM THE FILMS SOUNTRACK WICH MATCHES IMACULATLY WITH THE CHARACTERS. THIS IS A WELL DESERVED TREAT FOR PEOPLE WHO DONT FIND THE CAMPY SPIDERMAN ENTERTAINING AND WHO ARE AFTER SOME DEPTH AND SUBSTANCE IN THEIR MOVIES.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly enjoyable movie July 20 2004
Format:DVD
I resisted Daredevil, because, frankly, there is such a glut of "super hero" movies. Not they are bad, but there are Xmen, Hulk, Spiderman...seems there is always another one, but nothing really that stands outs. But I must say this movie surprised me. With engaging performances by Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner in the leads, nice support from bad guys Michael Clark Duncan and Colin Farrell and as the nose-for-news reporter Joe Pantoliano, plus super effects, it's a fun movie. There is a driving soundtrack that really sets the mood for the movie,
music that will cause you to go out and buy the soundtrack.
It's a tight rope act to bringing a comic book story to the screen, too often a movie will take itself too serious, or it comes across as too cartoonish. Davedevil manages that balance. You have enough seriousness to keep you hooked, but it has that "stretch the boundaries" feel to retain the comic book flavor.
The store is the typical line. The young idealistic kid witnesses his father playing muscle for the local hood. Shock by the "fall" of his hero, he runs away and ends up losing his sight to a chemical spill. The kid fights back and takes the
advantages his other senses now give him and won't give into the tragedy. The death of his father, later sending him down the road as the avenger for the downtrodden, the defender of justice. Garner plays his love interest, but she is a pawn sacrificed by her fathers misdeed. The romance between Affleck and Garner is solid, the chemistry very believable. Great fight scenes. All the mix to make this just a very enjoyable movie in this genre.
