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.
July 14, 2015
Having died in Daredevil, Elektra has returned without a vengeance to bore us all to death.

Could you please create a lead villain whose best move doesn't involve flying bed sheets?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 14, 2005
The film's multi-writer screenplay struggles vainly to hide its plagiarized themes and action beats.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 14, 2005
Plays like a collision between leftover bits and pieces of Marvel superhero stories.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 13, 2005
Without a viable screenplay, there's nowhere for the character to go, and no way to avoid making her look silly.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Violent comic book movie with lingerie costumes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 14, 2015
The movie's dominant visual tone is bronzed grunge, and its emotional tone is depressive.
January 16, 2005
Awful.

Daredevil's lady friend Elektra gets a solo outing in this insipid action adventure.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 17, 2005
Static and plainly derivative.
January 12, 2005
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.

Girlfriend should have stayed dead.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
January 18, 2005
[With] dialogue as half-assed as its entry-level CGI effects, Elektra lacks thrills, narrative, emotion, believability, character development-and frankly-watchability.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

'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!'

Comic book spin-off has a star in Jennifer Garner, but no script -- which makes it a hyper-cut bore.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 13, 2005
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 13, 2005
While Elektra doesn't reinvent the genre, it's like 'Smallville' compared to Richard Donner's Superman.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

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.
