  Continuing the seemingly endless plundering of the company's various characters, Marvel Comics' film division brings us "Elektra," a useless, stilted, dull spin-off from the less-than-thrilling movie version of the comic-book-noir "Daredevil." A Greek woman from a mysterious background, Elektra is a lithe assassin in love with blind superhero Daredevil. She dies, is mystically reborn, is taught the ways of the ninjas and is torn by a spiritual divide between her cruel and deadly profession and her sense of justice. As in the "Daredevil" flick, lanky, pouty Jennifer Garner, star of TV's grrl-power spy series "Alias," plays Elektra. Names aside, there seems to be very little difference between Garner's character in "Alias" — conflicted CIA agent Sydney Bristow — and Elektra. In leaden fashion, Elektra's mentor, martial-arts master Stick (Terence Stamp, payin' the bills), is introduced. Stick says that a dippy teenage girl may be the next chosen mistress of the killing arts, and it's up to Elektra to protect the potential super-babe, even if a cadre of evil, mystically-powered terrorists has marked both gals for termination. Daredevil ain't nowhere to be seen. This is Elektra's (and Garner's) show, and it's a waste of the compelling, morally ambiguous character created by artist/writer Frank Miller during his memorable run on the "Daredevil" comic.
