Netflix Latest Series is Wu Assassins

Netflix has released it’s latest series with some familiar faces with Wu Assassins. The new show features actors such as Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha from Vikings), Tommy Flanagan (Chibs from Sons of Anarchy), along side some faces you may recognize in smaller roles. The shows premise is that it follows the story of “Kai Jin, a young Chinatown chef in present day San Francisco, as he becomes entangled with the Chinese Triad’s pursuit of deadly ancient powers known as the ‘Wu Xing.’ After an encounter with a mystical spirit, Kai reluctantly becomes the Wu Assassin, using his enhanced martial arts skills to recover supernatural powers from five modern day criminals threatening to use them to destroy the world. The premise is one similarly used with martial arts with ancient magic, but also delivers the amazing fighting scenes you would expect through the 10 episode season. I should mention the dialogue could use some work and some of the CGI effects and usage is subpar but overall it is worth a watch over the weekend. Check out the trailer below.
