While the world is pretty much at a standstill and we are looking for more at home options to view and entertain us, one selection action and comic book fans might want to think about is the webseries Ninjak Versus the Valiant Universe, which stars a host of popular characters from the line of comics over at Valiant.
The webseries is now available as a whole in movie form on youTube and it is rather awesome in its action sequences and stars some top tier martial arts talent like Jason David Frank from Power Rangers who plays Bloodshot which is now a film starring Vin Diesel. Check out some cool pics and the full length series below!
Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative, and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe…
Michael Rowe, who played Deadshot in the CW series Arrow, leads the way as Colin King AKA Ninjak who rages a one man all-out war against the best of the best that the Valiant Universe has to offer and he stars alongside Frank as well as WWE superstar John Henningan, Ciera Foster, Derek Theler, Chantelle Barry, Katelyn Statton and Kevin Porter.
Jason David Frank, who is best known for playing Tommy on Power Rangers, stands out as Blooodshot and his interpretation of the character is probably more truthful to the source material then Vin Diesel’s current film. Frank definitely looks the part and brings Bloodshot to vibrant life with his martial arts prowess.
The series was directed by the duo of Aaron and Sean Schoenke who are most famous for Bat In The Sun Productions which puts on the webseries Superhero Beatdown which pits some of the greatest comic book and genre characters in history against each other. Like that series, Ninjak is pretty ambitious and features some amazing fight choreography from the cast.
I was able to interview Michael Rowe last year for his feature effort Crown and Anchor and we talked extensively abou this project and what it took to put it together. The interview was lost when I moved over to this new platform so I will be reposting it soon with new pictures so keep an eye out for that.
As we face uncertain times and are forced to stay at home to be safe, I am doing my part to advertise some of the best viewing options out there on streaming services and this little beauty is well worth searching out especially if your a fan or just want to watch something that delivers in the action department.
The film is non stop and the fight choreography is top tier and thrilling to watch and the characters are treated faithfully in a bone crunching love letter for the fans of the Valiant Universe as they come alive from the comics page to the screen.
Watch the full series below courtesy of the Valiant Comics YouTube channel and keep it locked and loaded right here for my complete thoughts on it soon! Enjoy!!!
