Yet another movie about a woman who is so tough and so in charge
Verified purchase
We all liked Ripley, we loved Alice, and Sarah Connor was no slouch. But can we please stop pretending that women run around like alpha males fighting crime and beating large violent men in hand to hand combat? At least have the decency to hire Rhonda Rousey to do it. She is believable, would probably limit the BS, and could only do 1 or two a year which would be about the right ratio for tough girls vs. tough guys.

Surprisingly good as Elektra battles differences between her mind and body
Verified purchase
Marvel’s Elektra (Jennifer Garner) was first introduced in the Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck which had to be one of the worst comic book movies ever made. That didn’t stop Elektra from getting her own movie. That turned out to be a good decision because it was far FAR better than that release. The film contained Stick (Terence Stamp) as Elektra’s teacher and The Hand, a ninja organization and one of the great criminal groups in the Marvel universe. The story is about the inner conflict within Elektra between her mind and body.

The highlight of the movie is Elektra facing off against The Hand. The action scenes are well done and they don’t do a hokey Hollywood version of the ninjas either.

Elektra seems largely to have been forgotten especially because it came in the wake of Daredevil but it really is a very good movie well worth seeing.

Meh Movie, A Word about the Digital Copy
Verified purchase
Elektra, both the regular and director's cut version, is not a great movie. Jennifer Garner does her best to inject life and personality into a film that is both weird and strangely lifeless. The action, such that there is, does little to thrill. When your heroine literally fights white sheets you might have a problem. That being said, Garner is fantastic, the film has a strange charm to it, and it doesn't make her character merely eye candy.

WARNING: If you bought this thinking that you could get the director's cut digital copy you will not get it. This comes with the standard version of the film. I had to email, call, and speak with management before this was made right. So if you want the director's cut on digital and don't want to work your way up Fox's management then maybe just buy the digital version.

NICE TO SEE A WOMAN WHO IS BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT USED AS T&A FOR A MAN'S PLEASURE
Verified purchase
LOVED THE MOVIE! I GREW UP IN THE 60'S. AND ALL I CAN REMEMBER ABOUT 70'S, 80'S AND EARLY 90'S WAS WOMEN WERE ONLY CAST AS DAMSELS IN DISTRESS, WHO ARE "SAVED" BY A MAN. THERE WAS USUALLY NAKED BOOBS AND ASS OF THE WOMAN. REALLY? LIKE IN DEATH WISH 1, WHERE THEY SHOW A NAKED WOMAN BEING BRUTALLY RAPED. AGAIN, TITILATION FOR MEN. AND WHAT ABOUT THE GUYS LIKE BRUCE WILLIS, SYLVESTOR STALONE, MEL GIBSON WHOSE ACTION MOVIES PORTRAY SUPER HEROES THAT CAN FIGHT THEIR ENEMIES BY DOING SUCH RIDICULOUS THINGS THAT ANY OTHER MAN COULD NOT REASONABLY DO- YEAH DONE BY THE STUNTMEN, THE REAL HEROES OF THESE STUPID UNREALISTIC MOVIES. ELEKTRA PORTAYS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN WHO REALLY DOES ALOT OF HER FIGHTING. THAT STUPID MAN WHO SAID THAT HE HATED THE MOVIE BECAUSE "REAL" WOMEN CANNOT FIGHT MEN. WELL I BET JENNIFER GARNER COULD KICK YOUR ASS. AND AGAIN, THE REAL FIGHT WAS INSIDE ELEKTRA HERSELF- HINT-WHEN SHE SEES HERSELF AS A LITTLE GIRL WHO SAYS: "I AM NOT AFRAID ANYMORE TO THE OLDER ELEKTRA. IT IS NICE FOR WOMEN TO HAVE THEIR HEROES- LIKE JENNIFER GARNER. SHE IS AMAZING.

Daredevil spawns an even worse movie... how is that possible?
Verified purchase
Just when you think Marvel couldn't do something worse than Daredevil, this shows up. Good actors with really really bad dialog. The director does the "lull you almost to unconsciousness with countless flashbacks and then does something loud and startling" so many times that you begin to realize it must be on purpose; as even the director knows this is a lifeless plot that will put even the most energetic Marvel buff to sleep... which it did. I would ask someone to tell me how it ended, but that path was well worn and telegraphed in the first five minutes of the movie, so I'm pretty sure I know.

Decent movie, nice twists.
Verified purchase
This was one of those movies far down on my watchlist that I figured I'd kill a slow evening with. Garner is absolutely gorgeous in this but her use of the sai is rather misleading -- most people fail to understand they were specially-made for her and end up believing it's normally a cutting weapon. Anyway, the plot twists were nice but somewhat predictable, and the casting stereotypes were typical of the period -- sorry, Hollywood, there's just no way to win that game. The director's cut pulls out the scene with Ben Affleck, who did a cameo for the movie as part of his agreement with the studios. Kudos to Affleck for keeping his promise but the director was quite right to pull it out; it does absolutely nothing for the plot, story, or character development.

hated it!
Verified purchase
ok, so, no i didn't hate it, because i can never hate a movie with martial arts.

but the fact that i mostly listened to it while doing something else means i definitely didn't like it much.

didn't like it at all.
just not a good movie.
some good acting, but the writing/story/plot was SEVERELY lacking. (maybe it's the 2nd or 3rd part of a trilogy or something and i missed the adventure because i didn't see the previous part(s)).

whatever. it's a good enough movie to somewhat watch, but mostly listen to.

1/2 star for the fight scenes, which, like the entire movie, weren't impressive.

I FRICKIN' LOVE AMAZON!!!
(and...uumm...Jeff Bezos too!!!)

horrible movie
Verified purchase
Even with expectations tempered by movie critics over the years, this film was very difficult to watch. One of the classic elements of a good movie is for the audience to relate with the characters. It tried but failed miserably. As the movie progressed, I had less and less appreciation for the characters and their objectives. The film simply did not make sense and I did not care for the outcome. That's pretty bad for a superhero movie. Plus the villains were horrendous. Marvel can't pluck better villains from their comic book archive? And white people playing the good ninjas against the evil Asian ninjas isn't exactly appetizing either.
