    Garner does well as a believable tough bad-ass, sadly though, the script asks her to do little else. Aside from one decent action set piece, this feels like an extremely under developed film, the characters are underwritten and the story has massive gaping plot holes that makes the entire thing feel like an unfinished piece of work. There's practically zero attempt at fleshing out anything, it's like they couldn't even bothered, which is a shame, because the source material for the Elektra character the film is based on is actually rather good.

    My review -- this action/adventure/crime film title is now on DVD and somehow this film title does have a very small profit margin of roughly $14 million and that is being kind. The basic storyline is this and when I say the basic storyline in this particular review I actually mean it. But I digress the audience meets or hears this inner monologue from one of our characters as he tells us the histrionics of this particular lady and then…

    This is like a movie on SyFy, which is a good thing.

    While there are moments and characters of some interest, the plot holes are too wide and the stupidity too glaring to be ignored. A strong, female hero deserves better than this clichéd tedium.

    This movie is boring, dull, exhausting, and many other words alike. It takes the potential of it's name actors (Jennifer Garner and Terrance Stamp) and punches it in the face. The action is silly, it's chocked full of stupid villains that couldn't make it into X-Men, The guy who's tattoos are... real?, ninjas that are suppose to be the most powerful on earth but can be stopped by a 13 year old, and a kiss-death-woman (wait now that was IN…

    I watched the Director's Cut. I was surprised at how good it was. As an action flick, it's tight and mostly makes sense. It also passes the Bechdel Test, which is still sadly rare in superhero movies.

    Not as awful as expected but not much good either. This is a Marvel film made before the current and 'perfect' formula was nailed down.
    It's fairly dull and the editing and music is distracting so the occasional action falls flat.
    There are also some daft 'super' powers on show too: magic bracelets, lesbian death kisses and magic animal tattoos to name a few.

    On my Marvel vs DC movie page cogersonmoviescore.com/marvel-vs-dc-movies-best-to-worst.html this movie is ranked 51st out of 56 movies. So I did not have high expectations for this one. When we last left Jennifer Garner's Elektra she had died in Daredevil. Well in this one she is back from the dead....that is the good news....the bad news she is in a horrible movie! Dumb story, horrible acting by some in the cast that I won't mention because I am a nice guy...predictable twist and turns....and simply a waste of time. Final thought: 51st might be too highly ranked!

    Back in the days before Marvel figured out how to market its cinematic universe, it made pictures like Elektra that, looking back, can almost be seen as practice runs for the big show they later put on. Rob Bowman, a successful and creative television director who has never really managed to extend his reach as skilfully on the big screen, takes the reins of this spin-off from Mark Steven Johnson's Daredevil, itself a lacklustre adaptation of a property Marvel are…

    Elektra had the distinction of being released after Catwoman and Blade Trinity. Compared to those movies, it's a masterpiece, and yet, it's the biggest flop with the Marvel name on it. Fans hated it. Critics trashed it. And very few people paid to see it. I don't know why. Elektra is not THAT bad. It's directed by Rob Bowman, of X-Files fame, and he does a decent job of bringing the character to life. Even though it's Jennifer Garner again,…

    For a movie about a highly skilled and deadly assassin, Elektra is both too useless and too boring. She's so overridden with bland angst that it's a wonder she can even do anything else. It takes itself too seriously. She's riddled with pain and anger, so much so that it renders her the perfect weapon. Except she's constantly loosing and dramatically waking up from nightmares, so she doesn't have a lot of time to be anything other than opressively dour.…
