Russel Wong brings goods to the table
5 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the series that introduced me to the martial arts of Russel Wong. I was pretty amazed that such sophisticated looking actor can do such good kung-fu action. He looks like a yuppie from Silicon Valley or a stock broker in Wall Street, but when he starts moving, oh, look out ! This series was unique in that an Asian actors were the main feature of the story. This doesn't happen often in Hollywood TV making. As such, the series maintained good mixture of scenes outside of Asian habitats, and wasn't confined only to say the Chinese community or China town as the back ground of story line. Russel Wong did carry his part well which I'm sure helped expand his career. If the plots were little more action oriented, like some of Chow Yun Fat's Hong Kong movies, this series would have been even better.

Since seeing this series, I started to look for Russel Wong's name on movies, and I'd say that I haven't been disappointed too often when he shows up to do his kung-fu action.
