Yeah I have to agree on the whole they ruin the Female Superhero when it comes to movies. Then again what to the critics know? They give terrible reviews to movies and yet people still enjoy them, I don't read reviews but make my own mind up on the movie once I have watched it.
Tombraider I thought both movies were good and I enjoyed Elektra although I think you may find the budget for X-Men was more hence it probably looked a lot better. Buffy was good (Although I prefered Angel) some others for you to think about were Aeon Flux and Ultraviolet..
