Survival is never guaranteed, especially when you're living in an Ice Age. Set in Europe 20,000 years ago during the Upper Paleolithic era, a young cave boy is being taught by his father how to become a man. He must learn how to hunt and defend himself from the vicious creatures they live among in order to survive, but when he thrown over a cliff by a beast during a bison hunting expedition his father and the rest of the tribe presume him dead.
He is far from it, however. After surviving the fall with just an injured leg, he finds himself facing death once again when he is set upon by wolves. When one of the wolves is critically injured, he can't find it within himself to kill it, and so he takes it with him to a cave where he shelters for a few days and does his best to nurse it back to health.
Naturally the wolf is unfriendly at first, but it isn't long before he warms to his former enemy. Which is just as well because this alliance could be the only thing that will get this caveboy safely back home to his family.

There's an ongoing war between two lupine factions. On the one side are those who feel that the ancient ability to shapeshift is a curse, and want desperately for an ambiguous prophecy to be fulfilled. Then there are the blood-addicted, supernatural junkies who love killing so much that they want to keep the foretold omen from occurring. And what is this fabled forecast? Seems a young boy, born of human mother and wolfman seed, will turn 13 and... well, that part's not all that clear. Apparently, once the kid hits puberty, he will put the depressed beasts out of their misery while buzz killing the other lycanthropes happy hunting. So naturally, one side protects the brat (named Timmy), while the other is looking to carve up his adolescent guts.

Clearly, the filmmakers have respected the basic format of the DOA computer game and respected its fans. However, in respecting the computer game director Cory Yuen has disrespected cinema and forgotten the basic needs of a decent film: a good story, interesting characters and some sort of drama. DOA occasionally touches on all of these points, but kicks away in favor of a slavish desire to package the entire production in the style of its source material.

Scantily clad action heroine with a sexy-tough pout? Check. Supernatural bad-guy gang of tattooed, Goth-punk clowns? Check. Hard-to-follow kung-fu fight scenes flash-edited to disguise actors' martial arts deficiencies? Check. A complete lack of adherence to its own internal logic? Double-check.
"Elektra" is the latest Marvel Comics superhero flick to roll off the assembly line, and it's such a half-hearted, prefabricated effort that even the normally charismatic Jennifer Garner can't save it.
Reprising her role from 2003's disastrous "Daredevil" adaptation (which she almost did save), Garner plays the title character -- a stereotypically brooding, ninja-trained super-assassin with a conscience who has been brought back from the dead by a generic, mystical army of good that is fighting a generic, mystical army of evil.
