'Elektra'
(Jennifer Garner, Terence Stamp, Kristen Prout, Goran Visnjic / PG-13 / 90 mins / 20th Century Fox)

Overview: Recently deceased assassin Elektra Natchios (Jennifer Garner) is revived by the Order of the Hand, the crew of killers who trained her. Their leader, Kirigi, sends Elektra on a mission to kill Mark Miller (Goran Visnjic) and his young daughter, Abby. Soon, however, Elektra has befriended her would-be victims and decides to stand up to the Order, which then sentences her to death.

Verdict: Oh dear! To be quite frank, 'Elektra' is a poorly written collection of comic-book movie cliches that offers nothing new to the genre, generates very little in the way of action thrills and plays like a self-important, humorless rip-off of 'Kill Bill'! 'Elektra's story is as thin and simple as they come, full of genre cliches and established merely to stage one elaborate action scene after another. And, on a personal side note, no matter how many times I hear about the actressí arresting good looks, I just canít get past the fact that she always comes across as slightly mannish! In summary, 'Elektra' is a comic book movie that feels like it might have been made for the Lifetime channel. With costumes by Victoria's Secret!
