From the pages of Marvel Comics — creators of X-Men and Spider-Man — comes ELEKTRA, the first action-event movie of the year. In the ultimate battle between good and evil stands a warrior who makes the choice that tips the balance.
Jennifer Garner stars in the title role as a strong, mysterious, and 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. 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 and Abby Miller, a father and daughter on the run from the Hand, a powerful syndicate whose members practice the dark martial art of ninjitsu.
Unlike most comic-book heroes, Elektra possesses no super-human physical powers. Instead she makes maximum use of her incredible physical prowess and martial arts skills. In addition she has the ability to see into the future, a skill known as Kimagure, which she has honed through countless hours of deep meditation.
Elektra learned the art of Kimagure from her mentor, Stick, who has the composure of a monk and the raw smarts of a street fighter. Elektra once was Stick’s star pupil, but her inability to reach beyond her dark impulses led to her expulsion from Stick’s training compound.
Stick literally gave Elektra her life back. So when he later insists that she leave the fold, Elektra feels abandoned. All earthly bonds now broken, she assumes the mantle of an assassin. Alone in the service of death, she finds a place dark enough to hide.
