Elektra

One of this young century’s worst movies, Elektra is a textbook case in bad writing. Instead of giving the audience some compelling reason to root for the film’s heroine, it instead starts with a voiceover narration wherein we are assured that those Japanese gentlemen in the suits are evil and must be stopped. What evil have they done or do they plan to do? We don’t know. Maybe they’re supply-side economists who are interested in moving the Social Security fund out of government bonds and into risky, private-sector investments. In any event, the voiceover then assures us that a bunch of other dudes in white robes are good people, and then the movie begins with some shots of our "heroine" killing, like, 40 guys in cold blood. Luckily, she’s played by Jennifer Garner, who has exactly one facial expression, which is something like "is this a lemon I’m sucking on? Yeah, it must be a lemon." The latter thought applies pretty well to this entire film.
