stick the landing
 v. phr.— «Bringing comicbooks to life always represents a particular challenge, with words and images that don’t quite survive the leap from page to screen. “Elektra” earnestly tries to complete that jump but, once the fighting’s over, can’t quite stick the landing.» —“Elektra” by Brian Lowry Daily Variety Jan. 12, 2005.
