Elektra is a strong, mysterious and sexy action heroine – a lethal synthesis of grace and power. Not long after recovering from seemingly mortal wounds, Elektra has severed all ties with the world, living only for her next assignment. But in an unexpected turn of events, she is forced to make a decision that can take her life in a new direction – or destroy her.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - This is a comic book-based action adventure. While the ads feature a lot of martial arts action, there is also a lot more talk than one would expect. Although bloodshed is minimal, there is a fair amount of violence.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average "Elektra" is one of the least effective comic book-to-movie stories to have come along in the past few years. Without a viable screenplay, there's nowhere for the character to go, and no way to avoid making her look silly. When a comic book movie fails to grab its audience, it is apt to come across as excruciatingly dumb. That description applies to offerings like "Catwoman," "The Punisher," and "Elektra." This movie is better than the other two, but that's not company in which any self-respecting superhero would want to be included.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average "Elektra" plays like a collision between leftover bits and pieces of Marvel superhero stories. It can't decide what tone to strike. It goes for satire by giving its heroine an agent who suggests mutual funds for her murder-for-hire fees, and sends her a fruit basket before her next killing. And then it goes for melancholy by making Elektra a lonely, unfulfilled overachiever who was bullied as a child and suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. It goes for cheap sentiment by having her bond with a 12-year-old girl, and then ... but see for yourself. The movie's a muddle in search of a rationale.

USA Today Full Review
Average Jennifer Garner, adept as she is at physical stunts and action moves, is far more appealing when she's playing charming and adorable, as she did so winningly in "13 Going on 30." In her latest film, "Elektra," she seems wooden and dour, as if she is made cranky by her unearthly physical power. Her 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.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 242 moviegoer opinions. These opinions aren't great, but they're certainly better than what the critics would have you believe. Most enjoyed "Elektra." Some enjoyed it more than others, but fortunately very few disliked it. It's an above average movie that will likely satisfy most moviegoers interested in this type of movie. It's worth a look, especially on the big screen.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Elektra possesses no super-human physical powers. Instead, she makes maximum use of her incredible physical prowess and martial arts skills. In addition, she has the ability to see into the future, a skill known as Kimagure, which she has honed through countless hours of deep meditation.

Elektra learned the art of Kimagure from her mentor, Stick, who has the composure of a monk and the raw smarts of a street fighter. Elektra once was Stick's star pupil, but her inability to reach beyond her dark impulses led to her expulsion from Stick's training compound.

Stick literally gave Elektra her life back. So when he later insists that she leave the fold, Elektra feels abandoned. All earthly bonds now broken, she assumes the mantle of an assassin. Alone, in the service of death, she finds a place dark enough to hide.
