That's because the title is spelled Elektra: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0357277/
An OK movie, imo, but not overly fantastic. Still, probably not as bad as Catwoman is purported to be (haven't seen it, won't see it).
To add to the list:
Hero has some pretty fantastic women warrior scenes in it. I love that movie more than House of Flying Daggers (and maybe -- maybe -- more than CTHD, but I'm waiting a few years to make that judgement!
) Tho nothing really beats the drum/ dancing/warding off daggers scene from HoFD for sheer costume brilliance! And nothing will ever beat the bamboo scene in CTHD for sheer beauty, imo.
Zoe, the female warrior of Firefly/ Serenity kicks major butt! (So does River, in some episodes, and definitely in the movie!)
I think the Matrix has some great women warriors. I'm really a huge fan of the whole trilogy, not just the first one.
Eowyn killing the Raith King in LotR: Return of the King is a major woman warrior moment for me (what makes it even better for me, as a geek, is that Peter Jackson allows that scene to be taken pretty much straight from the page.) Though I would not say those movies (or the books) are high on the woman warrior list in general.
I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting...
