After taking a raincheck on most of last year’s comic book films, I finally got around to watching Elektra on DVD this weekend. Like most people, I wasn’t that happy with Daredevil (considering I hate Ben Affleck, I’m not surprised), and wasn’t too sure about something that is effectively a spinoff in a long line of Marvel adaptations… but it worked out OK.
That isn’t to say it was good. Heavens no. But it was adequate, escapist, and probably a helluva lot better than most of the other action movies floating around the video library (National Treasure, for instance, of which I didn’t get through more than seven minutes). It passed the time.
