Welcome to the first edition of my Action-Flix Streaming Pix where I go over some of the Best known and not so known action offerings on all the various streaming services. Streaming is where it’s at these days and there are many sites, films and series to choose from. To inaugurate this series on my new site, I chose the highly anticipated Wu Assassins which debuts this Friday on Netflix. This one looks good and hopefully it catches on so we get more seasons. It looks high-octane to say the least and could surpass anything in the theaters.
Ever since it was announced, Wu Assassins has probably been on the top 5 must want to watch list of any serious action genre fan, including myself, and the day is almost here for all of us to partake in what will certainly be one of the most epic martial arts projects to hit the small screen or big screen for that matter. While we wait for the fisticuffs to come, check out some more images from the show!
Official Synopsis: “Wu Assassins follows 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 new, epic 10 episode series stars some of the most prolific martial arts stars working today including Iko Uwais, Mark Dacascos, Byron Mann And JuJu Chan. It also features Lewis Tan who was featured on Into The Badlands, Katheryn Winnick (The Dark Tower), Tommy Flanagan (TV’s Sons of Anarchy), and Tzi Ma (Mulan).
The initial trailer and action clip featuring star Iko Uwais kicking all sorts of ass was definitely enough to get genre fans excited and hopefully the whole 1st season will not disappoint.
Wu Assassins hits Netflix this Thursday so get your binge worthy freak in and watch some insane martial arts action from some of the top stars and stunt professionals in the business!
