Shrouded in mystery. Tainted by tragedy. Trained to kill. Then left for dead. But for Elektra, death was just the beginning. Now she is back - with a vengeance.
Tortured by her past and haunted by her own mysterious death, Elektra (Jennifer Garner) finds herself resurrected. Although her sensei has trained her well in the strict discipline of ninjutsu, he cannot begin to tame her burning rage over the brutal murder of her parents. Elektra's need to avenge this untenable crime forces her into exile. She becomes an assassin - the best in the business. But for a woman like Elektra killing is no way to make a living.
To save herself, Elektra needs something more than a reason to kill...she needs a reason to live. She finds it in the form of her latest target Abby, a feisty 13 year-old in whom Elektra sees so much of herself, and Abby's father, Mark (Goran Visnjic). In her desperate struggle to save them, Elektra finds something she did not even know she was looking for: redemption.
Along the way, Elektra faces an army of assailants with deadly supernatural powers, from an assassin bearing tattoos with a life of their own to a disease-spreading demon known as Typhoid Mary. Her only allies are her hand-to-hand combat skills, her trusty sai, compound bow, and above all, a mystical power known as Kimagure: an ability to predict the outcome of events before they happen.
Directed by Rob Bowman (THE X-FILES MOVIE, REIGN OF FIRE) and influenced by the Asian-flavored cinema of CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, KILL BILL and HERO, ELEKTRA is poised to take the martial arts action movie to a whole new level. With spectacular stunts, electrifying martial arts sequences and one of Hollywood's most appealing actresses taking center stage as the beautiful and deadly assassin, the mystical epic adventure ELEKTRA promises to be a killer at the box office in 2005.
