    ELEKTRA

    Uma coisa é uma coisa, outra coisa é outra coisa. Quando um filme pretende se basear em outra mídia seja ela uma obra literária, uma peça teatral ou até mesmo uma história em quadrinhos é quase que impossível transferir intacta a idéia original da forma como foi concebida, porém, mesmo assim, é impossível calar a voz dos indignados. Talvez nem seja o caso, mas independente disso as tidas obras intocáveis invariavelmente sofrem adaptações, mudanças e alterações quando são levadas…

    Another movie I watched on TV. It's funny remembering Marvel made movies before anyone gave a shit about marvel movies. I never watched it back then cause i didn't think i would enjoy it, i still didn't. Unless constantly asking my sister "What's old Terence Stamp doing?" counts as enjoying it.

    It starts off with a brief confrontation that tries far too hard to establish some sort of cool vibe, then spends the next half-hour on melodramatic "no we mustn't" love story bullcrap when they should be establishing the mythological world that the movie's taking place in. We eventually get to the end where there's a climactic showdown with a villain whose backstory is being shown to us via flashback during the fight. If this movie was halfway competent, they would have let us know who he was beforehand. Incredibly inept writing and heavy-handed stylized direction all around a group of actors that don't seem to care.

    This is a bad movie but it's no different to any other poorly written, poorly conceived movie. The difference with this is that it's used as the reason why female superhero movies won't work. Two shitty female superhero movies in the same decade and it's "proof" that no one wants them. Ridiculous. Make a good movie and people will watch it.

    I can't deny that "Elektra" is entertaining as heck, and Jennifer Garner is good in the role, but it is poorly written, shot, and paced (for the most part). The action sequences are cool, but the visuals are terrible, and the romance that comes into play isn't believable, nor is the chemistry. It isn't there much, but when it is, it bugged me. Overall, "Elektra" is a cash grab, thou it is entertaining at times, and the chemistry between Garner and Prout was nice.
    GRADE: D+

    Watched this as sequel to Daredevil and there is little that connects the films, they used the loosest connections possible and even had to combat death to come up with some sort of supernatural excuse for this film and the whole thing felt totally forced.

    I was told this was shit... and it was. Oh well, I've seen it now and can have the satisfaction of not watching it again.

    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.
