Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has some scattered witty notions, but it is not funny."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
""Elektra Luxx" has a playful, breezy sexiness that gives the world of the film, porn biz and all, a refreshing innocence."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Elektra Luxx has its moments, but the overriding reaction is "Why?" Not only did its predecessor not merit a sequel by anyone's standards, but this is a forgettable film briefly buoyed by lines and energetic performances."
‑ Kimber Myers, The Playlist
"An odd but often laugh-out-loud funny mix of absurdist humor, raunchy backstories, and genuine pathos."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"A porn star's midlife crisis makes for a limp story in "Elektra Luxx.""
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"You sense that the characters, as much as we, are waiting for something to happen."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Writer/director Sebastian Gutierrez is all over the map with a bizarre multi-character drama that never really clicks."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"Everything about this movie is off."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Carla Gugino and Joseph Gordon-Levitt perform superhuman work trying to keep this mess together, but can only do so much when faced with such arbitrarily plotted nonsense."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Film Journal International
"Despite the fine thesping seen in this innocuous piece of fluff, the whole amounts to less than the sum of its parts."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
""Elektra Luxx'' needs a star whose secret weapon is that she only looks and sounds as dumb as people think she is. It needs Melanie Griffith."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Offbeat, and powered by a game cast, but also full of spun-off asides and backstories that aren't smoothly integrated into the final product, or made to have forward-reaching consequences."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"While I admired the acting, it just never really came together into a cohesive whole that I could appreciate, but it's still an interesting, laudable attempt at making something different."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Gugino and the rest of the mostly female cast clearly savor the chance to strip and swear in a free-play environment, which is a nice way of saying the film is hopelessly flabby and lacks coherence."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
