Elektra (2005) (part 1 of 10)

The Cast of Characters:
Jennifer Garner as ElektraElektra (Jennifer Garner). Allegedly a skilled professional assassin. Special trademark move: whispering.
Kirsten Prout as Abby MillerAbby Miller (Kirsten Prout). Lady MacGuffin. Also, Elektra’s surrogate daughter/little sister/whatever in the cornier scenes. Almost as forgettable as…
Goran Visnjic as Mark MillerMark Miller (Goran Visnjic). Abby’s parental appendage. Not really Elektra’s “love interest” so much as an “acquaintance interest”.
Will Yun Lee as KirigiKirigi (Will Yun Lee). The bad guy, or so we’re told. No past, no motivation, and no villainous charisma to redeem him. Evil has never been so uninteresting.
Terence Stamp as StickStick (Terence Stamp). Elektra’s old sensei. Reminds me a lot of Splinter, even though he has far less charm than an animated rodent.
Colin Cunningham as McCabeMcCabe (Colin Cunningham). Elektra’s manager/agent. Bet you didn’t know assassins had agents, did you? A man with flexible morals and a big bank account. Doesn’t like killing, but loves the money Elektra brings in.
Bob Sapp, Edson T. Ribeiro, Chris Ackerman, Nathassia Malthe as The VillainsThe Villains (Bob Sapp, Edson T. Ribeiro, Chris Ackerman, Nathassia Malthe). Kirigi’s four henchmen. Obviously, they all have other places to be, because they exit the movie as quickly as the plot allows. Calling them “characters” would be like attaching wheels to a wooden plank and calling it a car.

The Fili

Hi, my name is Matthias, I am a student of English and German, and may one day even get to teach these (if my university ever works out how to run a B.A. system). I live in a medium-sized German town few have ever heard of, and have only recently discovered the joys of suffering through horrible movies, describing them in every little... okay, let's forget about the joy and make that therapeutic effect.
