Plot Summary

Assassin-for-hire Elektra (Jennifer Garner) works for a mysterious international organization known as the Hand, for which she kills her targets without question, and in a conspicuous red bustier, no less. When the Hand asks her to kill Mark Miller (Goran Visnjic) and his daughter, Abby (Kirsten Prout), while they're on holiday, Elektra's conscience kicks in and she decides to protect her targets rather than eliminate them. Of course, the Hand isn't so willing to let them off the hook.

    Steven ReaPhiladelphia Inquirer

    "Kill Bill" without irony, and without Quentin Tarantino's flair for cool dialogue and chop-socky action (and without Uma Thurman, for that matter), Elektra is a pretty-looking, pretty dull adaptation of the Marvel Comic about a dishy, deadly assassin. show more

    Long on cutlery and d├ęcor (including, of course, the marvelously decorative Ms. Garner, of the TV series "Alias") and woefully short on narrative.

    Along comes Elektra to effectively lower the bar for Marvel Comics page-to-screen transitions. show more
