An unassuming San Francisco chef becomes the latest in a line of assassins chosen to keep the mystical Wu powers out of the wrong hands.

My husband and I watched Wu Assassins on Netflix. We love martial arts action shows and urban fantasies. Wu Assassins has both!
While the paranormal aspect was a little shaky (a little Avatar: Airbender-ish) and the special effects were low budget, the show made up for all that in heart and lots of well-choreographed fight scenes. Every episode had at least two entertaining fight scenes with men and women fighting at the same skill levels.

What surprised us was how invested we got in the characters and their story. There are four friends (two are siblings) who are bound together by a near-death experience when they were younger. The writers gave them, along with the other main characters, a lot of depth and had many sub-plots that came together in the end. This is a drama, but there are some funny moments too.

And the icing on the Wu cake... RAWR!

If you love martial arts action shows then you will enjoy this. If you like looking at sexy people doing martial will enjoy this too!
