Worth a look.

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.

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.

This doesn't exactly set the world on fire, but I was charmed by its old-fashioned storytelling, which is refreshingly free of archness, self-consciousness, or Kill Bill-style wisecracks.

Everything comes back to Garner, though -- and even when the movie takes itself too seriously, thankfully she never does.

Not the best, but not the worst (and the upcoming Fantastic Four movie can only make [Elektra] look better).

In another film, the slice-and-dice action scenes would have had me reaching for my thesaurus. But I liked this movie. Go figure.

It's not Schindler's List, but it's not Catwoman either.

Electric as Elektra, Jennifer Garner does a high-powered, blade-thrusting star turn as Marvel Comics' ninja-inspired superheroine, bringing such unbridled energy and sexuality to her performance, one barely notices the movie itself.

[Garner] is ... gloriously in gear, ready to kick some Hand.

Gaps don't ruin the film, thanks to Garner's performance and Bowman's apparent enjoyment of his job.

The fight sequences are hot.

No one will confuse Jennifer Garner for Meryl Streep, but she has a solid turn here as a woman who makes a big show of having withdrawn from the world but really hasn't.

Elektra succeeds because of Garner's dedication to the character, and her willingness to go along with some rather outlandish ideas for a comic book adventure.

True to form, Garner creates a strapping action character with as many foibles as muscles.

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.

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