Could you please create a lead villain whose best move doesn't involve flying bed sheets?

The film's multi-writer screenplay struggles vainly to hide its plagiarized themes and action beats.

Plays like a collision between leftover bits and pieces of Marvel superhero stories.

Without a viable screenplay, there's nowhere for the character to go, and no way to avoid making her look silly.

This is a comic book movie that feels like it might have been made for the Lifetime channel. With costumes by Victoria's Secret.

Static and plainly derivative.

The thing about Elektra is, she flashes back so often you wonder if she may have experimented with acid back in her days at Superhero U.

[With] dialogue as half-assed as its entry-level CGI effects, Elektra lacks thrills, narrative, emotion, believability, character development-and frankly-watchability.

'And I must say that not since Rafael kicked butt with the rest of the Ninja Turtles has a character wielded a sai the way Garner does!'

James Rocchi

Comic book spin-off has a star in Jennifer Garner, but no script -- which makes it a hyper-cut bore.

Scott Weinberg

Giving a spec/polish script to a neophyte director and demanding a low-end vehicle for today's hot eye-candy is not the way to bring superheroes to life. Just ask Halle Berry.

You're left with stilted dialogue and dark, underlit sets.

While Elektra doesn't reinvent the genre, it's like 'Smallville' compared to Richard Donner's Superman.

They should have just called this movie Contractually Obligated Sequel staring Jennifer Garner because I can see no other reason why someone as talented and as smart as she is would want to do this film.

No matter how many times I hear about the actress' arresting good looks, I just can't get past the fact that she always comes across as slightly mannish.

Hardly the Citizen Kane of superhero films - but Elektra is better than DareDevil, and a LOT better than Catwoman.
