Elektra (2005)

Starring: Jennifer Garner, Terence Stamp, Will Yun Lee, Jason Isaacs, Ben Affleck
Director: Rob Bowman

U.S. Opening Date: January 14, 2005


Remember what was the best thing about the 2003 Daredevil movie (about the obscure blind Marvel comic book hero played by Ben Affleck)?

No, not the cinema’s exit sign when it was finally over, but Jennifer Garner’s boobs. Yup, and now Hollywood has for once cottoned on: there will be no Daredevil sequel, but we will be getting an entire movie dedicated to Garner’s boobs. Ain’t life swell?

Anyway, Elektra (the name of the Garner character) hits U.S. cinemas early 2005 and is directed by Rob Bowman (of the X-Files movie and Reign of Fire fame). Incidentally it also stars British actor Terence Stamp, who must be used to this sort of thing because he played the superpower villain General Zod in Superman II way back when.

Expect this one to go the Catwoman route at the box office . . .

Oh yeah, and at the risk of sounding waaayy too geeky (ah, too late already!): the costume worn here by her is closer to one in the original comics than in the Daredevil movie . . .

Plot Summary for Elektra

Jennifer Garner returns as ELEKTRA, a lethal synthesis of grace and power with the mystical power known as kimagure: a limited ability to see the future. She has purposefully severed all ties with the world and lives only for her next assignment. Elektra's latest job forces her to make a decision that can take her life in a whole new direction or destroy her.

Kirigi and The Order of the Hand send Elektra on a mission to kill the widower Mark Miller -- a man who must pay for an act committed by his grandfather years earlier. Upon being introduced to Miller by his young daughter Abby, however, Elektra aligns herself with him and defends them both from Kirigi's ninja assassins. But is there more to the Millers than meets the eye?
