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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.
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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

This is not Spiderman or X-Men but still a much better film than it is given credit for.
Him and his father vow to fix their relationship and their life, promise to never give up and be fearless, and embark on a journey to perfect themselves and hit the comeback trail--Matt via the books and honing his senses and disciplining his body; his father to enter the ring once more. With Matt by his side, Jack "the devil" Murdock makes good on that promise, but a fateful night in the ring changes everything and Matt promises from then on to stick up for those who can't defend themselves and watch out for the long shots like he and his father were.
Now, all grown-up, he's a lawyer by day and masked crimefighter by night. His name: Daredevil.
And he's not the only one who wants a piece of New York. Crime boss the Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan) is on the rise, as is his hired goon, Bullseye (Colin Farrell). Adding to matters, Elektra Natchios (Jennifer Garner)--a shapely martial arts master--has her sites on Daredevil (Ben Affleck) as well, leading us into a battle for New York, for vengeance, and for those who have been a victim of crime.Read more ›
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.
