Critic Reviews for Wu Assassins Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

"Wu" coasts on the same, all-important rule of cool every Hollywood action franchise save the "John Wick" movies (with whom this series shares actor Mark Dacasos) seems to have forgotten.

[Wu Assassins] harnesses Uwais' energy as both a fighter and an actor in an exciting fashion, and creates a giddy opportunity for martial arts awesomeness to flourish.

Wu Assassins is a fun, fast-paced fighting fantasy that excels in its delivery of awesome fight scenes and skilful camerawork. It loses its allure with dodgy CGI and weak script work, but makes for an easy and not particularly taxing watch.

The storytelling is erratic and the special effects are conventional. But the series lights up in its battle scenes. [Full Review in Spanish]

Fortunately, the show's strengths overpower its inconsistencies, making it a fun popcorn series that at least deserves another season.

Aug 13, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A hard-hitting supernatural adventure series that falters when the fights stop.

Aug 13, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

I was so blown away with the camera work, the stunts and the commitment. You could tell a lot of time and love went into making sure these scenes were top notch.

Nine hundred and ninety-nine monks? Not enough. But 1,000 monks? Just right.

Aug 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The clichés, plot holes, and stilted dialogue would all be forgivable if there were more fight scenes, and if the show wasn't so often soaked in its own sodden seriousness.

    Agreed the story at points are a little weak and it seems to be confused if it's a sci-fi fantasy or cutting edge drama it's likable. The fight scenes were cool. Graphics not too bad. Lots of powerful women.

    This show is awesome; make sure Uncle Six is in season 2! He is cool as all heck.

    Ive never seens Rotten score so skewed - guessing maybe bots. The ONLY saving grace is Katheryn Winnick, MArk Dacascos and Tommy Flanaghan. But even they arent enough to outweigh the terrible writing, ridiculous plot, general cringey dialogue, and just cringe all round.

    Watched it all but didn't feel like a fully assembled product. Some week acting and week dialogue. IMHO doesn't deserve a 80+ rating on RT ... closer to 55% would be more appropriate.

    More predictable garbage from Netflix. The music is cacophonous; the cgi is poor; the acting, especially from Ying Ying is terrible. The plot is convoluted and uninteresting.

    I like it. Just know what you're getting into. It's a sometimes (often) over the top kung fu (and more) movie.

    The story is not innovative or appealing. Characters are shallow. Acting is weak. Awful special effects. So-so fight scenes.
