Spin-off from 2003's Daredevil which doesn't really
correct the casting errors from the preceding film, with Jennifer Garner reprising the role with what can probably be considered an acting performance.
Garner is 'resurrected' in the role as the eponymous assassin who spends most of the film battling her emotions and some dodgy-looking CGI wolves.
Brainless, but quite enjoyable in places, it just doesn't
quite justify itself as a standalone franchise.
