this movie is howlingly medicore, but the real question is, is Jennifer Garner the Arnold Schwarzenegger of the '00's? Let's see. acting range that consists of happy or mad, often interchangable? check. carefully manufactured good looks? check. talent for action scenes, especially hand to hand combat and blowin' shit up? check. drawn to higher quality sci-fi/fantasy fare? well, garner hasn't made "total recall" yet, but Alias is great. Politcal ambition?

Yawn...

ELEKTRA is just one more nail in the coffin of the comic-book-to-movie genre. Collagen-lipped Jennifer Garner struts and glares, Terence Stamp does the "blind" thing, and director Rob Bowman (who gave us fun, energy and visuals in "Reign of Fire") is reduced to mongering a bunch of special effects. There are a few good scenes, and the girl/girl chemistry of Garner and newcomer Kirsten Prout (from TV) promises something rather different. But even this, like so much else here, ends up as cliché.
