  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
She's hot, she's on fire, she's "Elektra"fying! Back from the dead, Elektra's (Garner) new assignment is to go after neighbor Mark (Visnjic) and his daughter Abby (Prout). But the assassin discovers that her conscience has gotten the better of her as she finds herself caught between good and evil, and the past and the present. Based on the Marvel character by Frank Miller. (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
Stylizations and creative cinematography add an edgy characteristic and visual intrigue to the storytelling. The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD looks great, with clean, solid images that are sharp and nicely detailed. Colors are richly saturated, especially Elektra
