Movie Summary

Director:
Rob Bowman
Released:
2005
Rating:
PG-13
Elektra is a 2005 superhero film directed by Rob Bowman and starring Jennifer Garner. The film is a spin-off of the 2003 superhero film Daredevil, with the character Elektra Natchios originating in Daredevil comics and appearing in several publications by Marvel Comics. The film begins with Elektra (Garner) being resurrected by Stick (Terrence Stamp), a martial arts master, after being killed in the movie Daredevil. Stick begins to teach Elektra a discipline that gives its practitioners the ability of precognition and the power to resurrect the dead, but she is expelled. Years later, Elektra uses her skills as a contract killer and receives an offer for a large sum of money if she spends a few days at a rented home on an island before assassinating her targets. Elektra becomes romantically attached to a man named Mark Miller (Goran Visnjic) and does not carry out her mission when she learns that he and his daughter Abby (Kirsten Proust) are her targets. Replacement assassins are sent by an organization known as The Hand. Roshi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), the master of The Hand, sends his son Kirigi (Will Yun Lee) and a group of ninja assassins to kill not only Mark and Abby, but Elektra as well. Elektra senses them with her precognition, however, and is given a chance to fight for the lives of her and her new-found friends and for her redemption.moreless

  • Not Bad At All

    7.5
    Look dear people, the story was maybe a little bad, but obviously this is a solid movie taking into consideration Daredevil and the rest of the Marvel made movies back in 2005 (and the period before 2005). I know that I have seen the most bad ass Jenifer Garner since ... well never. She was good in Alias, but not this level of good. Goran Visnjic was powerless here, maybe he could have done better if he had some kind of superpowers or some trick up his sleeve... I mean this guy was Spartacus for Christ sake! Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa was scary though.

    The other cast probably don't even matter, not even the tattoo henchmen (I don't know his name alright?), because we cheered for the good guys from the start.moreless
