Garner, who showed a promising comic touch last year in 13 Going On 30, does her movie career no favors here.

The problem is Elektra is not among the most compelling of characters. She doesn't have enough humanity and the story not enough depth to sustain us between fight scenes.

If the film isn't as bad as some others in the comics-to-cinema genre (Halle Berry's Catwoman has rather lowered the bar), that's not to say it's good.

Worth a look.

Daredevil's lady friend Elektra gets a solo outing in this insipid action adventure.

Even the action scenes flirt with tedium.

Studio dross of the lowest grade.

Having died in Daredevil, Elektra has returned without a vengeance to bore us all to death.

Every line, every plot twist, every digitally processed so-called fight scene will be easily foretold.

Elektra is an inaction movie, as vague, impersonal, and uninvolving as superhero flicks get, and they can get pretty impersonal.

There isn't a whisper of spontaneity.
John Hazelton
Screen International
July 14, 2015
A curiously ponderous affair, with an excess of pop psychology character background and cod-Eastern mysticism and not enough fun or action.

The movie's dominant visual tone is bronzed grunge, and its emotional tone is depressive.

Violent comic book movie with lingerie costumes.

Some comic properties should just be left on the page.

Cinema Crazed

An utterly embarrassing misfire with poor performances, contrived elements, and a weak premise.
John Wooley

Elektra is a strange and emotionally distant picture, redeemed, if not completely, by a nice climactic battle, some moody visuals and a star who seems to be working as hard as she can to heat up a character designed to be chilly.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

For all its slow-mo kick-flying and computer-generated mysticism, the story is tissue-thin and simple to the point of being simpleminded.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

What's missing in this Elektra is a certain sense of play and imagination.

It felt like I was back in my childhood watching serial chapters at a Saturday matinee.
