An accident blinds young Matt Murdock but heightens his remaining senses. As an adult, he fights for justice as a lawyer by day and superhero by night - until a romance with Elektra, martial artist daughter of a tycoon, brings him up against New York crime boss Kingpin and assassin-for-hire Bullseye.
Long-time DD fans and newcomers will like the characters more than the film, but there are enough strong moments to guarantee a good night out. An inevitable sequel might well shore up the weak spots.
