"She's the last thing that stands between good and evil. "Elektra the warrior survives a near-death experience, becomes an assassin-for-hire, and tries to protect her two latest targets, a single father and his young daughter, from a group of supernatural assassins.
Good story, bad direction
This is a good story that falls victim to lazy direction. It begins
well enough, with Elektra the revived assassin unable to complete her
mission (which is killing a man and her daughter). However, because of
the overuse of slow motion, the audience loses interest fast, and it
only fizzles out with the final battle which is utterly anticlimactic.
It's good to see Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa (of Mortal Kombat fame) back in
action, but the other actors are uninteresting in their roles. Best
reason to watch this movie - watching Jennifer Garner getting kissed by
a woman who kills people with her kisses - AND RESPONDING. 2 1/2 out of
