Elektra, based on characters from Marvel Comics: a Film Review

Synopsis:

After being killed by Bullseye after an altercation with Daredevil, Elektra Natchios is brought back by Stick, a blind master of Kimagure.  The martial art, which can give practitioners the ability of precognition, is one that few people can master.

Elektra is expelled from the training grounds as her rage and fear take hold.  Instead she uses what skill she had acquired to become an contract killer.  One of the best in the world.

When she is contacted by a mysterious client with an abnormally large sum, things get complicated.  The job?  Spend some time in a rented home where the assassination is to be carried out…and only then will the buyer reveal who the names of the targets are…

Add in the fact that it is hard to not fall in love with the adorable Abby and her father, Mark Miller, and Elektra has a tough choice to make.  Do what she is good at and get the payment…or dig deeper to see what is really going on with this contract?

Review (contains spoilers):

This one goes right up there with Green Lantern….its about as bad as I remember.

Sadly, Elektra is a pretty cool character and this movie just doesn’t do it justice.  I hope that they decide to remake this like they did with Daredevil.

I just feel like her character was wasted on this early 2000s film.

The one good thing is that these early superhero films…the good and the bad…were what paved the way for the films we enjoy so much now.

Here’s hoping they redo things.  No offence to Jennifer Garner because she really did everything she could with what she was given.
