I know how you feel...
Elektra: You don't know how I feel. I want revenge.
Matt Murdock: Revenge won't make the pain go away. Trust me, I know.
Elektra: There's no place for me now.
Matt Murdock: Yes there is. Stay. Stay with me, please.
Matt Murdock: Elektra. Elektra, wait! Please...
In all her battles, Elektra uses her sais in a very incorrect manner. She has her fingers in between the prongs, which eliminates the sai's primary purpose, which is to trap an opponent's weapon. The way she holds her sais actually puts her fingers in danger. Plus, the sais are blunt weapons, not sharp.
There is a scene in the closing credits: Bullseye is in a hospital ward with a full-body cast, but is able to use a syringe to take out a fly.
During post-production, 20th Century Fox UK sought and was given advice about classification from the BBFC. After receiving that advice, the company chose to make cuts to the film for release in the UK and as a result the UK cinema version differs from the US cinema version. The changes occur in two scenes:
English, Greek, Italian
