Elektra (2005 movie)
For the screenplay, Zak Penn, Stuart Zicherman, and Raven Metzner received "written by" credit. Mark Steven Johnson received credit for "motion picture characters" and Frank Miller for "comic book characters."
Continuing from Daredevil, Elektra is revived after dying from the mortal wounds she suffered from Bullseye, by the Order of the Hand, a group of assassins who helped train her. She is assigned by the Hand's leader, Kirigi (Yun Lee), to hunt down Mark Miller (Visnjic), and his 13-year-old daughter, Abby, whom the Hand require for their order. Elektra discovers that Miller is an ally of her former mentor, Stick (Stamp), who helped to train Daredevil after he was blinded. The two of them take on the Order of the Hand, and equipped with her trademark Sais, Elektra takes on Kirigi.
Just as the prequel (Daredevil) was for Matt Murdock, this film is about Elektra coping with her childhood experiences and putting them behind her. The film is much more stylized than Daredevil, which was quite gritty.
