Blinded by toxic waster when he was a young boy, Matt Murdock (Affleck) has gained enhancements in the remaining senses. With his father murdered, he sees this as a perfect opportunity to fight crime and help New York City. He becomes Daredevil, and every night risks life to stop those escaping prison. One person who is still free is the biggest crime lord in New York, the Kingpin (Duncan). Whilst working as a lawyer, Matt becomes the masked hero to track down the Kingpin before anyone else he loves is taken out.

I didn't watch The Director's Cut. Personally, I don't think this movie is that bad. It's acceptable for a movie and good for a 'superhero movie'. I think writers should write movies about superheroes rather than 'superhero movies' in this kind of clichéd way (same with video-game adaptations) but in this case, Daredevil is reasonably interesting as a movie by itself. Seen worse. Seen better.
