Electra is just shocking
4 July 2006 | by imdb-14589See all my reviews

While cruising the cable movie channels before bed, I saw "Electra" coming up. I saw that the film was dated 1995 and so assumed it was an earlier, not-talked about version of the story of the Marvel comics character. Not being too familiar with the story, it took some time for me to clue into the fact that this film was something entirely different. Something quite shocking, frankly.

The expression "train wreck", where you can't pull your eyes away from something so terrible because of a perverted sort of pleasure, this movie lured me in and kept me watching. I was laughing at several points in this movie, and was even slightly disgusted at other times. However, I continued, watching the twisted metal as it piled up and began to buckle.

It is a fairly interesting psychological exercise to watch this film and try to imagine the thought processes behind the ideas in the film. If psychology is not your cup of tea, an equally enjoyable time can likely be had from watching this movie after a few beers. The thought processes are simply bizarre and the film jumps from one scenario to the next at a lively pace. Nothing about the film is formulaic or predictable.

I cannot in good conscience give this movie a 9, even though for me the experience was magical, simply because I expect some people would be unable to keep watching. If you are ready to see a ridiculous flick (think "Killer Tomatoes" but with the humour strictly unintentional), and can stand the raunch, this film delivers high train wreck value.
