Writer/s Story Characters in film Mark Steven Johnson

Elevator Pitch Elektra, a wayward superhero with a tendency toward obsessive behaviour, makes a living assassinating bad people but when she gets a job to terminate a father and daughter, she is unable to do it and instead ends up protecting them against the evil superbeings employed by “The Hand”.
Content Scenes in a variety of Canadian environments. A bit of martial arts and fighting mostly with edged weapons. Flashbacks to Elektra’s past, to give us some exposition. A bit of smooching between the main characters, but no sex, alcohol or drugs.
A View I know this was panned, but really compared with some of the stuff I have seen it was not bad. If I had a critisism it was that the various good and bad superheroes powers were inconsistent, but it is not alone in that. If you like superheroes it is probably worth your time, but not much of your money.
