The insanely beautiful and talented Jennifer Garner has a very hypnotizing cute belly button but the screenplay is terrible and there is very little similarties with the character and her comic book origin. The director seem more interested in giving Garner a sexy photo shoot than a "real" movie. And when you cast Terence Stamp you don't only give him a glorified cameo and stupid dialogue that don't make sense.
Uncertain and undriven but seeing Elektra doing what she does best kind of compensates for the effort to try to watch this journey. It's sad and absurd that they chose this path for such a thick and mysterious heroine (in the comics). Watch only to see Elektra in motion but expect it to be inglorious in terms of script, content, and development - since it does nothing for the character.
