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. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

Production filming was only 62 days. See more »

Goofs

The fact that almost every movie depicting a character associated with Greece is misusing the greek alphabet for example (capital sigma instead of E). Another example is Elektra's necklace that instead of H capital lamda EKTPA writes E capital lamda EXTPA. Movies are not meant to be shown only in countries that ignore the greek alphabet and it is rather offensive for the greek viewers. See more »

Quotes

Stick: Don't look for your opponent. Know where he is. I'm blind, and I see more than any of you, because I don't look.

Worth The Watch
17 January 2005 | by neysa59See all my reviews

This is one hard movie to really rate. When i was about half way through i was thinking maybe 6 out of 10 and that was pushing it. After completely watching the movie and actually spend some time thinking about it the movie is actually pretty good.

Jennifer Garner did a awesome job in the movie. All the guys will like it cause it has plenty of action in it for them to enjoy. The only thing i really found lacking in the movie is the fact that they don't tell you anything about the bad guys and who or why they are doing what they are doing. Since the movie was not really that long i feel they should have spent a little time explaining all the characters better. If they did they i would have given it a even higher rating and would have said it was right up there with xmen and spiderman 2.

Overall i would say its about a 6.8 out of 10. It is definitely worth even spending full price at the movie theatres.
