Elektra Luxx Reviews

An awful, incomprehensible mess that neither titillates or amuses. And for a comedy about porn, that's a fatal combination.

The sum total is a black hole of blinding pain.

Elektra Luxx has its moments, but the overriding reaction is "Why?" Not only did its predecessor not merit a sequel by anyone's standards, but this is a forgettable film briefly buoyed by lines and energetic performances.

Writer/director Sebastian Gutierrez is all over the map with a bizarre multi-character drama that never really clicks.
March 31, 2011
Offbeat, and powered by a game cast, but also full of spun-off asides and backstories that aren't smoothly integrated into the final product, or made to have forward-reaching consequences.

Everything about this movie is off.
March 15, 2011
While I admired the acting, it just never really came together into a cohesive whole that I could appreciate, but it's still an interesting, laudable attempt at making something different.
March 11, 2011
Not that there's a lot of substance here in the first place. Gutierrez's movie is superficial and slick in most respects, and if not for its amazing cast of veteran and up-and-coming character actors I don't there would be much here to talk about.

Carla Gugino and Joseph Gordon-Levitt perform superhuman work trying to keep this mess together, but can only do so much when faced with such arbitrarily plotted nonsense.
March 11, 2011
Gugino and the rest of the mostly female cast clearly savor the chance to strip and swear in a free-play environment, which is a nice way of saying the film is hopelessly flabby and lacks coherence.
March 11, 2011
Has some scattered witty notions, but it is not funny.
March 11, 2011
A porn star's midlife crisis makes for a limp story in "Elektra Luxx."
March 10, 2011
Too ramshackle and sloppy to leave much of a lasting impression.
March 10, 2011
Despite the fine thesping seen in this innocuous piece of fluff, the whole amounts to less than the sum of its parts.
March 10, 2011
You sense that the characters, as much as we, are waiting for something to happen.
March 10, 2011
The intended colorful irreverence looks a lot like standard indie quirk.
March 10, 2011
The whole thing feels too sketchy, too tossed-off, to hang together as a movie. But as a TV series - on HBO, Starz, Showtime or even FX - this material might actually work.
March 10, 2011
Sebastián Gutiérrez joins the ranks of directors who have employed their wives or loved ones as sex objects in their pictures. Unfortunately, he has none of the talent of a Jean-Luc Godard or even a Brian De Palma.
March 9, 2011
In the grand tradition of Critters 4 and Hellraiser 7 comes Elektra Luxx, a sequel to a motion picture few actually saw...an overly talky and scattered feature, but so was 2009's Women in Trouble.

It isn't clever enough to be even momentarily diverting, and it's about as sexy as oatmeal.
