Storyline

In the ultimate battle between good and evil stands a warrior who makes the choice that tips the balance. A strong, mysterious and a deadly sexy action heroine - a lethal synthesis of grace and power. Not long after recovering from seemingly mortal wounds, Elektra has severed all ties with the world, living only for her next assignment. But in an unexpected turn of events, she is forced to make a decision that can take her life in a new direction - or destroy her. Key players in Elektra's journey are Stick, a blind martial arts master responsible for Elektra's "resurrection," and Mark Miller and Abby Miller, a father and daughter on the run from The Hand, a powerful syndicate whose members practice the dark version of the martial art Kimagure.

Goofs

During one flashback, Elektra goes back to her ride in the ambulance when she dies. The paramedics use a defibrillator on her. A defibrillator is only supposed to be used on bare skin but they have it being used over a leather vest. (This was most likely done to help connect the flashback to her final scene in Daredevil by showing the costume she wore that night.) See more »

Quotes

Elektra: I like your bracelet, by the way. Do you know what those are? Here. They're warrior beads. They're from Indonesia. Centuries ago, you had to be the best fighter in your village to earn them.
Abby Miller: Wow. I bought 'em off eBay.

User Reviews

saw it and it was great!
16 January 2005 | by CherylitaSee all my reviews

I was surprised "Abby" got so much action, I wanted to see elektra invincible, not just an average superhero. But otherwise, it was great!!

I'm also a jennifer garner fan from Alias and it was so much like alias with the martial arts. Her axe and push kicks just are so intense in this movie. You can feel the effects.

I really hope there is an Elektra 2 because she needs to be better and everyone wants to see her better than her matchup, not have Abby give her time to catch her breath to go in for the kill. Also hope to see more of her supernatural powers. We saw plenty for the bad guys, though. The effects were great! Better than great! Tattoo was such a great character.
