Wu Assassins

A Netflix original series, styled in the "over the top" Hong Kong made kung-fu series, this was the latest series discovery me and Noshi made on the streaming channel.

And the added bonus of Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha) is well taken ;-)

Kai is a simple chef in Chinatown, his only dream being to own his own foodtruck.  But one day, he is selected by the mysterious Dao to become the 1000th and final Wu Assassin, a champion that must defeat the warlords of the 5 elements (fire, water, metal, wood and earth) who are out to destroy the world.

Together with his friends he is pulled deeper into the plot, which seemingly revolves around their Triad leader family (and Fire Wu) Uncle Six, who himself is trying to maintain his grip against the insurrection of the mob led by Alec McCullough.  However, this turns out to be a fallen Wu Assassin, who became the Wood Wu to try and save his family that was lost in the war 500 years ago.

The series has some fantastic fight scenes (I personally loved the pilot one!) and the pace of the story doesn't slack down to much over the course of the series, granting some good entertainment.

Definitly worth to check out!
