Elektra (2005)

This adaptation of the Marvel/Frank Miller comic book character is better than Daredevil, the movie that spawned it.  That may be damning with faint praise, but I'll do it anyway.  The tale of an assassin earning her redemption by protecting a widower and his daughter is predictable but still a much better time than I'd expected.  Got to stop reading those reviews.  Anyway, it's filled with artistic flourishes, some decent acting (except for Terrance Stamp, unconvincing as a blind martial arts teacher) and some B-grade CGI wizardry.  Popcorn movie, but I like popcorn movies.  Give it a "B".

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.
