An entertaining martial arts fantasy program
10 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

Kai Jin is a serene and calm chef in a restaurant of San Francisco. He becomes the latest Wu assassin, i.e. the chosen one, thanks to a monk piece which gives him the power of a thousand monks. His mission, should he choose to accept it, consists in restoring balance in San Francisco's Chinatown.

A series avec Iko Uwais et Mark Dacascos, that's an offer you can't refuse. It's globally well-interpreted with a childish and cheesy atmosphère which reminds me Iron Fist (2017) and with a script freely inspired from The Last Airbender (2010). Even if the Computer-Generated Imagery is perfectible, the series is worth a stab, thanks to talented and perfectly orchestrated kung-fu fighting.
