Low-wattage action movie based on the titular Marvel Comics character (played by a buff Jennifer Garner in hellcat mode), a blade-wielding femme fatale who runs afoul of a super-powered crime syndicate when she decides to turn from her assassin ways and protect the two targets -- a young girl (newcomer Kirsten Prout) and her father (Goran Visnjic) -- whom she has been contracted to kill. Directed by Rob Bowman, this slick but stale "Daredevil" spinoff is little more than a series of frenetic death duels sloppily strung together in a hackneyed attempt to distract viewers from the lame dialogue and muddled plot, resulting in a viewing experience which is anything but "Elektra-fying." Recurring strong stylized violence, including several impalings and an implied decapitation, thematic moral ambiguities, a gratuitously erotic same-sex kiss, sporadic crude language and an instance of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
