Check out my review of the early Marvel film Elektra (2005) over at Flashback/Backside for his Marvel Hero series. Thanks Damien!
Number of Times Seen – 1 (15 Jan 2015)
Brief Synopsis – After being resurrected, a female warrior name Elekra become an assassin for hire and is sent to protect a man and his daughter
My Take on it – Truth is there isn’t too much to say about this movie because it’s so bad.
Even Jennifer Garner thought it was horrendous, but only followed thru because the contract she signed when she made Daredevil two years beforehand.
This movie was also filmed superfast because both garner and fellow lead here Goran Visnjic were both on hiatus from their respective TV shows at the time (Alias for her and ER for him).
None of the characters seem fleshed out enough and when dealing with meta-humans, it’s sorta a prerequisite in order for the audience to know what to expect superpower-wise.
The villains were all pretty weak and didn’t give enough of a fight, but that’s ok, because the fight scenes themselves aren’t memorable at all either
Certain movies should never be made, and I think this movie should be on that list.
Bottom Line – Complete waste of time. There are so many good (and even a few GREAT) Marvel movies out there, don’t waste even a minute on this one
Rating – Razzie Worthy 2/10
