Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Garner's charms extend beyond the mere physical. Simply by showing up, she makes Elektra far more entertaining than it has a right to be."
‑ Christy Lemire, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Elektra shoves Frank Miller's eponymous cold-blooded assassin into a PG-13-friendly adventure."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"Violent comic book movie with lingerie costumes."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"For all its slow-mo kick-flying and computer-generated mysticism, the story is tissue-thin and simple to the point of being simpleminded."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"As for Garner, she remains a lovely screen presence, but it's impossible to buy her as an emotionless killing machine."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"This doesn't exactly set the world on fire, but I was charmed by its old-fashioned storytelling, which is refreshingly free of archness, self-consciousness, or Kill Bill-style wisecracks."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"A none too Marvel-lous spin-off from Daredevil."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Some comic properties should just be left on the page."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"What's missing in this Elektra is a certain sense of play and imagination."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"During a fight, a character declared "Enough! It ends now." And I thought It's about time! Now there's a sure sign of an action movie falling short of its potential."
‑ Russ Breimeier, Christianity Today
"Everything comes back to Garner, though -- and even when the movie takes itself too seriously, thankfully she never does."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Offers no surprises, and whether or not you'll appreciate its modest charms depends entirely on whether you too have been anticipating Garner's new outfit."
‑ Benjamin Strong, Village Voice
"An utterly embarrassing misfire with poor performances, contrived elements, and a weak premise."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It felt like I was back in my childhood watching serial chapters at a Saturday matinee."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Garner may justify her reputation as an action woman, but fails to prove that sais matter."
‑ Helen OHara, Empire Magazine
