Elektra

 (2005)

Elektra Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Not long after recovering from seemingly mortal wounds, Elektra, the deadly female ninja, has severed all ties with the world, living only for her next assignment. But in an unexpected turn of events, she is forced to make a decision that can take her life in a new direction - or destroy her. Key players in Elektra's journey are Stick, a blind martial arts master responsible for Elektra's 'resurrection',ť and Mark Miller and Abby Miller, a father and daughter on the run from The Hand, a powerful syndicate whose members practice the dark martial art of ninjitsu.

For more about Elektra and the Elektra Blu-ray release, see Elektra Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Director: Rob Bowman
Writers: Zak Penn, Stu Zicherman, Raven Metzner
Starring: Jennifer Garner, Terence Stamp, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Will Yun Lee, Goran Visnjic, Kirsten Prout

Elektra Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

20th Century Fox brings Elektra to Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that looks great—and likely looks exactly as intended—but would be much more impressive if the film didn't rely on so much post-production tweaking. And I don't mean CGI. I'm talking about the film's extremely pushed contrast. For much of the film, particularly scenes indoors, blacks are oppressive, obliterating shadow detail in an attempt to craft a bold chiaroscuro visual style. I get what the filmmakers are trying to do—give the movie an edgy, unique look—but at times the image seems unnecessarily dark, to the point where it gave me a bit of eye strain. Obviously, this is a your mileage may vary-type issue, and I don't doubt that many fans will love how the film has been reproduced on Blu-ray, but it is something to consider. Other than that, though, I have no qualms about this transfer. The contrast-heavy aesthetic extends to the film's color palette, which selectively desaturates some colors while enriching others. Elektra's costume is a vivid cherry red and the scenes in the forest pop with ultra-green foliage. Skin tones can be somewhat inconsistent—alternately tan and pallid, depending on the scene—but this is all part of the overall look. Where the transfer is most striking is its exceptionally strong clarity. Check out the detail in Stick's craggy face and notice the fine texture that's visible on Elektra's various outfits. Personally, I think it's unfortunate that overly inky blacks absorb much of the shadow detail, but I can't really argue with directorial intent. At any rate, this Blu-ray version of Elektra is a vast upgrade from the DVD.


Elektra Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Less controversial is the film's ear-pleasing, room-shaking DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which seems precision engineered to rock your socks off. As you'd expect from an action film—though, as I mentioned above, the movie is more often inert than active—the fight/chase/assassin sequences are a mix of chest-rumbling dynamics and immersive cross-channel effects. Bullets zip and careen with alarming force, knives flip through the rears, fists and feet land bass-heavy blows, and—in the fight scene with the floating sheets—the airy whip of fabric fills the soundfield impressively. High-end sounds, like a shattering whiskey glass, are pristine, and the LFE channel throbs palpably whenever the film calls for a sonic kick in the pants. When not occupied with whiz-bang-pow action, the rear channels frequently put out environmental ambience, like pouring rain and assorted outdoorsy noises. Likewise, Chistophe Beck's fitting but rather unremarkable score fills up each channel with depth, spread, and definition. Dialogue sounds clean, but my only complaint about this track would be that the voices sometimes feel a bit too low in the mix. Never to the point where I couldn't understand what was being said, though; I just found myself volume boosting occasionally. The film's audio is, in my opinion, the best element of this complete Blu-ray package.
