Electra

    7 May 2005, terribly early in the morning

I remember when Electra first came out it was 7% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. This rating remains to this day. I would have to agree with the critics, the film just isn’t very good. I remember when the trailer first came out I thought it looked quite promising, like an attempt to do a live-action version of Ninja Scroll. The movies action sequences are alright, but nothing exceptional by todays standards. The story is pretty stupid. Elektra is sent on a mission to kill some people and she ends up trying to protect them from rival assassins. There isn’t much depth to the story whatsoever. If the film focused more on Elektra and her past it could have been more interesting, but they opted to go a different route with the film. That said, if they keep making comic book movies I’ll keep watching them.

  5. Jennifer Garner’s forehead spans the globe. That is all.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
