* BrokenBase: Her ''ComicBook/MarvelNOW2016'' look, which is based off of her Netflix ''Series/Daredevil2015'' look. There are some who are upset that they dumped her "iconic" look in favor of "[[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU synergy]]" though many see it as a step-up, finally dumping the HighlyVisibleNinja and bathing suit leotard look for something a lot more practical and perhaps boring. Some feel, though, that they could have compromised and given her the uniform she wore at the end of the ''ComicBook/AgentsOfSHIELD'' comic book.

* IronWoobie: Regardless of how you feel about the films she's appeared in, Elektra has not had a good life. She saw her mother murdered when little, grew up with a strict father who put her through rigorous training since childhood, sees her father murdered, mistakenly injures her boyfriend, is humiliated by her father's killer before being killed herself, resurrected by a former sensei only to be kicked out of the school because of her rage issues and became an assassin for hire while still being haunted by her past. And she is never seen reunited with Matt or getting to avenge her father.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Originally Elektra was just a normal girl who ended up going down a very dark path after the tragedy of losing her father. In the ''Man Without Fear'' miniseries showing how Matt Murdock became Daredevil she's portrayed as having always been a psychopath, hearing voices and intentionally going looking for trouble so she could murder her assailants. In an odd parallel to [[ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} Selina Kyle's]] prostitute past from ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', this is one part of an otherwise well regarded series that a lot of fans would prefer to ignore.

* SoOkayItsAverage: It's not perfect, certainly not a bad film. But the lack of anything interesting about the villains and Elektra's character didn't help it. In the end it's just bland.

* CriticalResearchFailure: At one point Elektra says the sai is "An offensive weapon. For killing." While it can be used as a stabbing weapon, its primary purpose is ''defensive.'' It's designed for disarming and breaking swords.

* CriticalResearchFailure: "[The sai is] an offensive weapon. For killing." No, it's not. It's a defensive weapon for disarming and breaking swords. A sai is capable of some pretty horrific damage against someone, but Hollywood treats it like a knife, when it's a blunt instrument.
