Synopsis: 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.

Since time began...

a war has been waged

in the shadows...

between the armies

of Good and Evil.

It may be fought

on a grand scale...

or within the heart

of a single individual...

or even a child.

The Evil has taken many forms...

and used the darkest of arts.

In our time,

they call themselves simply...

the Hand.

The Good follow

the way of kimagure.

Its masters can see the future...

and perhaps even

bring back the dead.

Legend tells of

a unique warrior...

a lost soul.

This warrior is a woman...

a motherless daughter.

And it is her destiny to tip the balance

between Good and Evil.

She is a treasure,

and both sides seek her out...

as a final weapon

in an ancient war.

- Perimeter, what's your status?

- Delta team, clear.

- Alpha, clear.

- Bravo, secure.

It doesn't matter.

You can't stop her.

- Nobody can stop her.

- Her?

I was afraid if I told you,

you wouldn't take the job.

I never should've hired you.

Who do you think's coming for you?

You may have heard of her.

Her name...

is Elektra.

- You find that funny?

- She's an urban legend, sir.

That woman died years ago.

Really? Well, then somebody

must have brought her back from the dead.

You know, Bauer, when you've

done the things I've done...

you make a lot of enemies.

My private security detail...

the best money could buy.

This nonexistent woman

killed 14 of them in half an hour.

I barely got away.

Spent the next two days in Monte Carlo

wondering why she let me go.

Then she came for me.

I was under the protection

of the Hand itself, who sent their best.

Although they seemed more interested

in killing Elektra than in protecting me.

She cut 'em down like wheat.

Took maybe 10, 15 minutes max.

Didn't really think

why I kept gettin' away.

So here I am.

And now I understand her.

She wanted me to feel this...

what it's like

to have nowhere to go...

nowhere to turn.

How's your perimeter doing now?

Delta, what's your status?

There's no signal.

Son of a b*tch.

- You know, the better the assassin...

- Alpha, Bravo, report.!

The closer they can get to you

before you know they're there.

Alpha! Bravo! Report!

- Ah, Christ.

They say Elektra whispers in your ear

before she kills you.

- Alpha.! Bravo.! Report.!

- It's too late for your boss, Bauer.

- But you still have a chance.

- Jesus Christ!

You can't fight a ghost, Bauer.

- Here we are at last.

Guess it's all true.

The red outfit

and the knives and...

So, what happens now?

You just kill me,

straight out? Just cold?

Don't worry.

Death's not that bad.

Yeah? How do you know?

I died once.

So am I to understand that

with all the power of the Hand...

that the Treasure

continues to elude us?

Yes. Perhaps if we

had pursued it sooner...

and more aggressively...

You dare to blame

Master Roshi?

Seems our methods

are too mild for Kirigi.

Not at all, sensei.

But if we cannot have

the weapon ourselves...

allow me to make sure it does not fall into

the hands of those who may use it against us.

Master, allow me.

Things like this must be handled

smoothly, quietly.

Then work smoothly, Meizumi,

but quickly.


Yes, Father.


You think that's safe,

leaving the door unlocked like that?

Geez, Elektra, you're gonna end up

with a bullet in your head.

I brought you a little something.

No, stop, McCabe. Don't put it down.

I already cleaned there.

- Why do you always do this?

- Get rid of my D.N.A.

Ah, D.N.A., of course. Right.

Silly of me. Listen, I just picked this up.

I know you like to look.

- It's all there?

- Less my 10%.

- Half to Barbados?

- And half to the bank on the Isle of Man.

You can do better in mutual funds.

I know a guy. I could put you in touch...

- No, thanks.

- Or not. But...

Look, I don't want

to tell you how to do your thing...

but quite a body count

on this one, E.

We were only getting paid

for DeMarco.

Was it necessary?

Had to be done.

Did it?


Did it?


Anyway, it spreads the legend.

Besides, they were gonna kill me.

Of course they were.


And, speaking of which,

as your agent...

I am obligated to tell you we just got

an absolutely fantastic new offer...

- but that last job...

- Let's skip this one. I need a breather.

- Great idea. I'm just sayin' it's a lot of coin.

- I'm tired.

You're tired?

Well, then you better get yourself some sleep...

'cause you are gonna crash,

baby, you know that.

I mean, you even get laid?

It's a lot of money,

this new offer.

- McCabe.

- All right, fine. You know what?

Look, you want to take time off, take time off.

Call me when you wanna work.

How much?

And just tell me.


Ah, they'll give it to somebody else.

They wouldn't pay that

to somebody else.

You got that right.

They asked specifically for you.

Location's in there.

I'll call you when I get the target.

Get some sleep.

You might wanna reflect a bit.

- Again!

Do you know the way, Elektra?

Kimagure, the ability to control time...

the future...

even life and death.

I know I'm the best student here.

Not the best.

The most powerful.

You understand violence and pain.

But you do not know the way.

- Teach me then.

- That's my point.

I can't teach you.

I want you to go.

Is this a test, sensei?

No, not a test.

Just go.

I don't have anywhere to go.

The client says

he needs you there a couple days early...
