| director's cut- do yourself a favor. See it
First of all, i was never a reader of the comics, and didn't know much about daredevil before venturing into the cinemas to see the original when it was released. At the time, there wasn't much action out and i like most of Ben Affleck's movies, so though i would give it a go. Although i liked the theatrical release ( but didn't love it) i still bought it when it came to DVD...and to be honest, when i watched it the 2nd time on DVD, i didn't think as much of it, as when i left the cinema.

So when i heard the directors cut was out, and people who hated the first release, but liked the 2nd one, i thought wow, i didn't mind the first, perhaps i will really like the new version. and guess what? I did ! Its absolutely fantastic. After the characters were fleshed out more, the storyline was more involved and filled in the plots- you actually cared about what happened and got more into the feel of being apart of what was going on in hell's kitchen.

If you watch the "featurette" : giving the devil his dues, you will understand that Mark Johnson the director, absolutely loves this material, loved the comic, and was disappointed himself with the theatrical release. He understood why the critics & fans alike didn't support it, and really wanted to fix the problems with this DVD. When will Hollywood studios & executives learn, a 100 minute movie, does not mean a better movie - and when will they learn that audiences DO want more than just action - we can think, you morons! And can hold our attention for more than 100 minutes. Here's a simple plan for your money making schemes - and this goes to Gary Foster ( producer who still says the theatrical version of daredevil is better) If you make a GOOD MOVIE, that gets good reviews, and that fans & critics enjoy, then more people will see it, more people will see it a 2nd time, more people will recommend it to friends, and that means a bigger audience, a repeat audience and bigger dollars for your pockets ! So while the first was a quick paced movie that made quick bucks, a longer - more thought-out MOVIE, would have garnered longer life at the box office.

in a word - RECOMMENDED !

Trivia

Composer Graeme Revell incorporated sounds to use as motifs for certain characters. For instance Bullseye has guitar undertones, while Kingpin has bass beats.


Quotes

Franklin 'Foggy' Nelson: Do you or do you not concede that there are alligators in the sewers? Please answer the question.


Goofs

In his opening scene in the Irish pub, Bullseye's neck and the top of his chest are peeling from sunburn, because Colin Farrell had just returned from a Mexican cruise while he was on holiday. A sunburn is rather unlikely for this character who prefers to live in shadows and darkness.


Crazy Credits

The opening credits are seen in a sequence of dark skyscrapers. There are lit windows in the skyscrapers, which turn into Braille letters which then become English letters spelling out the main cast - later on, the supporting cast and production crew are directly formed in English from the window.


Alternate Versions

German theatrical version was edited for violence (ca. 1 min.) to secure a more commercial "Not under 12" rating. Shortened were the scenes where Bullseye kills the man in the pub, the lady on the plane and Elektras father. Also shortened was the stabbing of Elektra. The cut version was released on VHS and DVD (single-disc version), the uncut version was released only on DVD (two-disc special edition and re-release of the single-disc version).
