Citizen's Grade: O.K.
This film brought to the forefront one of the most dangerous, enigmatic & beautiful characters in Marvel Comics.....Elektra! Starring Jennifer Garner (who also played the same part in the Daredevil movie), she's all that stands between good and evil...when she's not being an assassin.
Restored to life after being murdered by Bullseye (see: Daredevil movie Review), Elektra is the world's deadliest assassin. But when she befriends a Man and his daughter, she is forced to make a fateful decision that will forever change her life and theirs.
When she finds out her next targets for assassination are the father and daughter she battles inner demons and mystically-powered ninja assassins of The Hand. With the help of her Mentor; Stick, she must find a way to do what she's never done before....Save rather than Kill.
Overall, a decent movie that does justice to the character. Jennifer Garner is beautiful and the action is good. Forget continuity if you're a Elektra comic book fan though!
