Elektra (2005)

In this spellbinding thriller, Jennifer Garner reprises the role of fearless warrior Elektra -- a character she originated in Daredevil. Now that she's back in the fold of the mysterious Order of the Hand, the group's leader, Kirigi (Will Yun Lee), tasks her with liquidating seemingly harmless widower Mark Miller (Goran Visnjic) and his teenage daughter. But all bets are off when Elektra falls for Miller and must battle her former allies.
My Two Cents: Like Daredevil, but no Affleck means more reason to watch, especially when Garner lightens up in the movie's second half.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 6/10

Alternate My Two Cents: Movies like this make HBO On Demand worthwhile; perfect way to kill 90 minutes and put you in the mood for 24.

Bonus Alternate My Two Cents: See "My Two Cents" for Fantastic Four; now substitute "Elektra" for "Fantastic Four."


Porter's Two Cents: Better than Daredevil. But then again, that's not saying too much.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
