    Default Wu Assassin's (Netflix)



    Brave of Netflix.

    They cancelled Iron Fist only to resurrect it with a worse actor and relocated it to San Francisco.

    But hey...it looks cheesey fun. So why not.

    You expect good martial arts and good acting?

    Mildly excited because it has Iko Uwais. (He can act you know, just not in English!)
    I really loved The Raid 1, and especially The Raid 2, with its memorable end-of-the level baddies. Uko knows his pencak silat ... hopefully he can show it.

    Totally not excited because:

    I'm worried I'm gonna get a reheated dish: There were plans in 2014 to make an American version of The Raid that ultimately got canned. So perhaps this series is a spinoff of that project. Let's see:

    The trailer revealed a couple of fight scenes in corridors, which have me kinda worried. Because one way to describe The Raid: Redemption 1 is a 90 minute vicious corridor brawl. The trailer then shows a fight in a casino hall--->hey, that's the ending of the Raid 2. The trailer also shows a scene with a fight in a garage full of cars---> that's the scene before the ending of the Raid 2.

    I could go on.

    Pretty sure story wise this one will be pretty lame(it's got fairies ffs!) and action settings will be nerfed to hell compared to Asian standards.

    I guess I'll watch it.
