    This is just behind-the-scenes but it's still awesome!

    I'm into episode 3 and my god this shit is fucking terrible!!!
    No wonder Lewis Tan didn't get the Shang Chi role, he has no charisma and cant act, and I liked him in Iron Fist.
    I thought Iko was a better actor than this, having seen The Raid and TR2 maybe he needs to be in more silent mysterious roles like in Mile 22.
    Also the sister Jenny is portrayed as a bad ass fighter and gets ass kicked by blonde Asian chick without getting one fucking shot in?! GTF outta here.

    Yeah, I tried to give this a shot, but it was pretty bad. Didn’t even get through the first episode — my wife urged me to just shut it off.

    Gonna be the mutant and say I dug the shit out of this, corny that it was at times - and oh boy was some of it corny.

    Yeah, Jenny can hold her own in a biff, but Zan is a career Triad enforcer. She probably eats fighters like Jenny for breakfast - so I'd believe she'd get her ass handed to her by Zan.

    Me and the wife really enjoyed this. Surprised to see a certain actress turn up near the end considering she didn't actually do anything, but maybe season 2 she will do more. And yeah, zan is the bodyguard to the head of the triad, you don't get in that position without being able to take down bad ass fighters. I had no problem with that aspect of Jenny.

    I wish that martial artists had more screentime in the media.

    I rather liked the nonchalant way she shows up drinking whiskey while the building is getting wrecked basically saying “Bitch, that was just the first boss”. I also kind of wish that more was made of the others getting Wu powers

    I tell you what though, Juju Chan and Katheryn Winnick need to be in more stuff together.

    That I liked (and glad Ying Ying came back, although I knew she would at some point, I do like her no nonsense attitude). I was meaning Summer Glau (but was being vague because I couldn't get the spoiler tags working on my phone). She had that great intro scene, gave Jenny someone to fight at the end and cried over Metal Wu's death. I know she's not 'A' list, but she's certainly recognisable enough to be doing more than that. Hopefully she'll be a main villain in series 2. I agree it would have been great to see more of the others using their Wu powers, or Kai slowly realising his friends are becoming corrupted by the Wu and he will have to kill them. That would have been interesting for a series 2, but I guess we'll have to wait to see what or who is causing problems.

    I swear this show is run by Scott fucking Buck.
    Kai gets the essence and "power" of a thousand monks that shows him catching a damn knife and able to deflect the Wu powers against him then gets ass kicked by every normal street thugs and takes about 5 minutes to take them down. Just so STUPID!!

    Katheryn Winnick needs to be in more stuff in general. I love her on Vikings. She’s a legit martial artist too. I still say that she should have been Captain Marvel. I pretty much only watched this for her and Iko Uwais

    I dunno about Captain Marvel, and even then the ship has sailed. That being said, if DC wasn’t taking crazy pills they’d have asked her to be Black Canary.

    I wish they could hire more hot women like from mortal kombat conquest.

    That would be great casting.

    Funny enough, she was in the movie Hellraiser: Hellworld (bad movie, but she is smoking hot in it), with Henry "Superman" Cavill and Khary "Cyborg" Payton, so it would be nice to get her in the DCU somewhere.

    I thought this was kind of interesting in a B-movie, martial arts flick kind of way until it turned into fantasy-esque Power Rangers blended with Mortal Kombat. I watched the first episode and that was all I needed to see.

    Iko uwais reminds me so much Ricardo Montalban from mortal kombat conquest.
