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.

Trivia

In 1992, Oliver Stone revealed that he was working on an Elektra film titled "Elektra Assassin" based on the comic book miniseries of the same name by Frank Miller and Bill Sienkiewicz. However, the plot would have involved Elektra fighting The Hand rather than being hunted by S.H.I.E.L.D., because the film rights to S.H.I.E.L.D. were tied up in another deal. The project was aborted when the film rights to Elektra and other Daredevil-related characters were sold to 20th Century Fox. Gabrielle Reece was reportedly Stone's first choice for the role of Elektra. See more »

Goofs

When Elektra, Mark Miller and Abby arrive at McCabes ranch house and go inside, McCabe is standing there, looking at the hawk on the fencepost; you can see quite blatantly the anklets around the hawks legs and rope connected to the holding the hawk in place. 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

Just saw the premiere last night ...
9 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

My wife and I went to the premiere of Elektra last night at the Palms in Las Vegas. The show was definitely action packed and showcased Jen Garner's strong physical and acting ability. I thought this might be just another "kung fu" type of flick but I was pleasantly surprised that there was a good story line, some romance, and (of course) plenty of action scenes that were well crafted and interesting.

The supporting case was strong and good cross section of "evil" people. We particularly liked the effect when the bad guys were defeated. The crowd that we saw the movie with definitely liked the film.

You should take a look at this one when it comes out next Friday, January 14th.
