PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Crime
Elektra the warrior survives a near-death experience, becomes an assassin-for-hire, and tries to protect her two latest targets, a single father and his young daughter, from a group of supernatural assassins.
The character Typhoid is based on Typhoid Mary, a villain from the Daredevil comics, though Typhoid's powers of poison are different from Typhoid Mary's psychic abilities of telekinesis and pyrokinesis.
What did you tell my dad? Did you tell him I broke into your house?
Elektra: Yeah, because you did break in.
Abby Miller: Well, you didn't have to tell him. I thought you were cool.
Elektra: I'm not.
When Elektra is in a bikini after swimming, her wound can be seen on the top of her stomach. However in the previous scene, when she is underwater, there is no wound.
In the credits, many Roman letters are replaced either by their Greek equivalents or by similar-looking characters (for instance, Sigma resembles the capital letter E).
There is a directors cut that is three minutes longer with some extra scenes.
