Even at just a slim 96 minutes, the film drags in places, with a predictable plot.

The real issue I have with this movie is how uneventful so much of it feels.

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

An utterly embarrassing misfire with poor performances, contrived elements, and a weak premise.
Aug 7, 2008
For all its slow-mo kick-flying and computer-generated mysticism, the story is tissue-thin and simple to the point of being simpleminded.
Mar 1, 2007
As for Garner, she remains a lovely screen presence, but it's impossible to buy her as an emotionless killing machine.

Elektra shoves Frank Miller's eponymous cold-blooded assassin into a PG-13-friendly adventure.
