** [[AllThereInTheManual The commentary track]] sheds some light on this. The supposition by the filmmakers is that Fisk's office is sufficiently different from Matt's normal stomping grounds (glass and steel as opposed to concrete, brick, and mortar) that Matt just doesn't know how to use his radar sense properly in that environment, until he uses Fisk's AwesomeButImpractical wall-watering system to "channel the ghost of Elektra" and turn the fight to his advantage.

** As for the rail banging, it was done to "clear out" the chaotic sound of the subway car. It's shown earlier, after he first gets his powers, that he's overwhelmed by the sound of the city all around his hospital room (to the point of it seeming like out-of-control cars in ''in the room with him'', until the sound of a church bell gives him something "latch on to" and clear away all the excess noise. When he's trying to find Quesada in the subway, a subway train screeches by, and all the various sounds muddle his radar sense, until he bangs his cane to give one clear, sharp sound he can focus on to clear up the picture.

* How does Daredevil's staff bounce off walls as well as it does? It's made of ordinary metal, not science fiction metal like Captain America's shield.

* It's not his hometown, just a bar he happened to crash into. (I seriously doubt that bartenders in Ireland complain about 'Irish trash' in British accents, for one thing, and Movie Bullseye is Irish.) As for nobody trying to stop him from leaving... would ''you''? That's just volunteering to be the next guy to die.
** Okay, fair point about his nationality. I didn't really think about that. However, while I wouldn't try to ''stop'' him, per se, I would call the police as soon as he was gone. It wasn't exactly the perfect murder.

*** that doesn't make any sense as they will have a lot of witnesses to testify against him and kingpin won't be able to do anything

**** Yes he can. Witnesses can be bribed, intimidated or killed; evidence and testimonies can be tampered with or "misplaced"; detectives can be bought etc. There are so many ways for an all-powerful crime lord to make this go away it isn't even funny. It would be a pain, but it wouldn't be a problem.

** Its possible it was a civil suit, rather than a criminal trial. Given he was able to get away with it despite being pretty ObviouslyEvil, its possible that she wasn't able to get a criminal trial for his crime so she settled on suing him for the assault.

* Is Matt Murdock a prosecutor or a defense attorney? In the start he's prosecuting the rapist, but he talks about having "clients", which so far as I know, prosecutors don't have. I guess he could do some consulting work, but that doesn't seem to jive with the talk about past clients who can't pay - while poor people might want to consult a prosecutor for advice, it sounds a lot more consistent with a defense attorney. And I don't think it's common to do both, since it would end up with conflicts of interest?

** There's a quick shot in Daredevil-Vision after Matt gets thrown against the window: it's jarring and blurry enough that he doesn't realize Kingpin is about to grab him until the guy's hand is right in front of his face. Presumably, filling the office with "rain" sharpened the image - as it were - and removed the disadvantage. Also, Kingpin waved the rose around and made a small speech about how unimportant he considered the killing of Daddy Murdock and Elektra - that was probably a factor too.

Added DiffLines:

* The climactic fight scene is set up so that the only reason Daredevil was able to turn things around was because he filled the Kingpin's penthouse office with water/rain. But why? He didn't have any problems detecting where the Kingpin was earlier in the fight, he simply got his ass kicked because the Kingpin was bigger, stronger, and less injured -- and none of those factors changed after it started raining in the room. Aside from RuleOfCool, there's no reason to explain why Daredevil bothered with the stunt or how it helped him.
