(("Elektra" (20th Century Fox) Review by: Joel Sink Jennifer Garner is cold, emotionless, assassin Elektra. Elektra bonds with a father and daughter she was supposed to kill and begins to protect them from other assassins. Elektra's relationship with the daughter helps her to deal with unresolved issues from her own childhood. While most critics are giving this movie a hard time, I'm here to say that it was actually pretty good. I don't have any history with the comic book, but I thought the movie was good entertainment and a decent escape on a cold Friday night. I really can't say enough good things about Jennifer Garner. I loved her in "13 Going On 30" and she proves again that she has enough talent and charisma to carry a film. Kirsten Prout as the 13 year old girl Elektra was originally supposed to kill shows lots of promise and some good chemistry with Jennifer Garner. What a great surprise seeing Terence Stamp here as Elektra's mentor "Stick". Fairly good writing (no eye rolling from me) help "Elektra" be more than just an action flick. There are, however, some important details that are conveniently left out. For Jennifer Garner, I'll forgive them. Joel's take: 7 out of 10 Rated: PG-13))
