    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    Long on cutlery and décor (including, of course, the marvelously decorative Ms. Garner, of the TV series "Alias") and woefully short on narrative.

    The Hollywood Reporter Michael Rechtshaffen

    Along comes Elektra to effectively lower the bar for Marvel Comics page-to-screen transitions.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Just as all regular models can't be supermodels, so all action chicks can't be superheroines. Elektra Natchios turns out to be walled off rather than mysteriously alluring; blank rather than deep.

    USA Today Claudia Puig

    Her (Garner) grace and mystical abilities make for a lonely burden, and we are supposed to feel her pain. Instead, we feel our own for having to sit through this silly movie.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 13+

Violent comic book movie with lingerie costumes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie features extensive and graphic (for PG-13) comic book-style violence with a lot of martial arts fights. Many characters are killed. There are brief grisly images. Characters use some strong language (s-word, etc.).

  • Families can talk about Elektra's answer to Abby's question about why she does what she does. Why did she have to leave her training? What will she do next?
