    Been looking forward to this since it was announced full trailer due tomorrow.

    The series is due to drop on August 8th.

    Starring Iko Uwais & Katheryn Winnick.
    A martial arts drama set in San Francisco’s Chinatown, the series tells the story of a young chef who discovers that he is the Wu Assassin, chosen to round up the powers of an ancient triad.

    Netflix love a good hallway fight scene.

    Watched the first one and really enjoyed it. The supernatural effects are a bit cheap looking but the action is top notch.

    Please be 10 episodes of The Raid, please be 10 episodes of The Raid!

    A couple of episodes in and yes the supernatural special efforts are cheap looking I'm ok with that the set piece fight scenes more than make up for that.

    Also Katheryn Winnick really is kick ass.

    Seeing a picture from this, is it inspired by The Last Dragon? :)

    Will get to it next week maybe

    Finished it and have to say I enjoyed it, story line was good, don't know why but kept expecting Duncan Mc Cloud to appear in the last episode.

    Left at 2 episodes. Thought it was awful. I tried to like it coz of Iko Uwais- the fight scenes were pretty good, but his acting is terrible. The supernatural scenes-
    the different dimension ones
    were like something out of Power Rangers. The overall look and feel of the show was good, but a lot of the acting/editing felt amateurish overall. Katheryn Winnick is kickass (being an Aussie, and trained in Viking fighting;)), but her character is the annoyingly exaggerated type (maybe her acting is bad; hard to tell, as with Vikings).

    The Winnick directed episode 7 was really she did a great job with it.

    They are making a movie

    Wu Assassins Team Reunites to Seek Fistful of Vengeance in Netflix Movie
    Kai Jin & Co. will seek a Fistful of Vengeance in a Netflix movie that will reunite several characters from the Wu Assassins supernatural-action drama.

    In the 90-minute standalone story, which is set to film in Thailand, the Wu Assassin team reunites in Bangkok to avenge the death of one of their own, only to find that their new enemy is an ancient threat armed with otherworldly powers.

    The returning cast includes Iko Uwais as the aforementioned Kai Jin, Lewis Tan as Lu Xin Lee, Lawrence Kao as Tommy Wah and JuJu Chan Szeto as Zan Hui.

    New to the mix, meanwhile, are Pearl Thusi (Queen Sono, Quantico) as Adaku, Jason Tobin (Warrior) as William Pan, Rhatha Phongam (Thailand’s Gift for Someone You Hate ) as Ku An Qi, and Francesca Corney as Preeya.

    Film out today. Under the name Fistful of Vengeance. Doesn't mention Wu Assassins in the title or description.

    I only watched the series recently so was fresh in my mind.

    As for the film, thought it was grand.

    I know it didn't have a season to build a story but it went from the occasional power in the series to loads of minions having mostly unexplained powers.

    Story was pretty thin. Was just there to fill gaps between setpieces.


    Was googling Francesca Corney (Preeya), as you do, and found the google info card funny

    Francesca Corney is a well-known actress who starred in Fistful of Vengeance. Her debut picture, “Fistful of Vengeance,” nearly changed her life overnight.

    Well known actress though only 1 credit.

    Was trying to think why she looked familiar then thought she reminds me of Jessica Henwick.

    Haven't gotten to this show. Seeing it has a film has me thinking it must be good. Reviews don't seem to be too shabby either.

    I'm watching this now - currently on episode 6.

    The show is decent, but the soundtrack is one of the worst imo. Some decent tunes, but the majority aren't, and/or are badly placed. It's taking away from the show for me.
