    He is the man without fear
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 99 mins
    Retail Price: £19.99
    Release Date:

    Ben Affleck is Matt Murdock, a.k.a Daredevil. As a young boy he lost his sight in a chemical accident, which left him with his other senses superhumanly enhanced (and some incredible acrobatic skills). Flash forward and Matt is working by day as a pro bono lawyer (with partner Jon Favreau) and by night as a righteous avenger. The plot sees New York supercriminal Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan) calling on Irish assassin Bullseye (Colin Farrell) to take care of some business involving the father of Jennifer Garner`s Elektra (with whom Matt falls head over heels in love). Daredevil is a shadowy comic book fantasy that provides plenty of fast-paced, high-kicking action.

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    I was very impressed with Spiderman. I thought it was a good all round action packed pop corn flick. I was hopeful then that Daredevil would deliver somehtign similar. I was wrong. The film is lacking in depth, and the story is boring.


    An excellent transfer.


    I listened to the dts mix and quite frankly was blown away, and this sound mix will be called upon in the future as demo material - fantastic.


    A wealth of extras to keep most fans of the movie happy, but as I am not, they didn`t do anything for me!
