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. Read full review
An adequate but none-too-thrilling star vehicle for Jennifer Garner in flame-colored bustier and low-riding pants. Read full review
"Kill Bill" without irony, and without Quentin Tarantino's flair for cool dialogue and chop-socky action (and without Uma Thurman, for that matter), Elektra is a pretty-looking, pretty dull adaptation of the Marvel Comic about a dishy, deadly assassin. Read full review
Her (Garner) grace and mystical abilities make for a lonely burden, and we are supposed to feel her pain. Instead, we feel our own for having to sit through this silly movie. Read full review
Just as all regular models can't be supermodels, so all action chicks can't be superheroines. Elektra Natchios turns out to be walled off rather than mysteriously alluring; blank rather than deep. Read full review
Along comes Elektra to effectively lower the bar for Marvel Comics page-to-screen transitions. Read full review
Long on cutlery and décor (including, of course, the marvelously decorative Ms. Garner, of the TV series "Alias") and woefully short on narrative. Read full review
Another inert, soul-dead action drama that turns actors into zombies...It's garbage. Read full review
Breathlessly boring. Read full review
