The love interest from 2003’s Daredevil
(Jennifer Garner) is back from the dead, resurrected by her mentor, Stick (Terence Stamp), and working as a high-priced hit woman. But her next assigned victim (Goran Visnjic) and his teenage daughter (Kirsten Prout) get on her good side, and she tries to protect them. For all its slow-mo kick-flying and computer-generated mysticism, the story is tissue-thin and simple to the point of being simpleminded. The script (by Raven Metzner, Zak Penn and Stu Zicherman) doesn’t even play by any rules; it just keeps going ’til it’s time to wrap things up. Director Rob Bowman gives the film a stylish sheen, all billowing curtains and tattoos springing to life, with Garner artfully tossing her long brown hair in her sexy red assassin’s outfit, but it’s just a pretty box of nothing.
