Review: Killer fight scenes can’t save Wu Assassins from dull, plodding script

Ars Technica - August 19, 2019 - 10:33pm

Iko Uwais stars as Kai Jin, a Chinese-Indonesian chef in San Francisco's Chinatown who is granted a mystical power in the new Netflix series Wu Assassins.

A humble chef is granted mystical powers to hunt down five powerful warlords in Wu Assassins, a new supernatural action drama from Netflix. Unfortunately, a talented cast and terrific fight choreography can't keep the show from sinking under the weight of its leaden, uninspired script. No martial arts series should be this much of a slog.

(Some spoilers below.)

Indonesian martial-arts star Iko Uwais (The Raid, Stuber) stars as Kai Jin, a Chinese-Indonesian chef in San Francisco's Chinatown who finds himself chosen as the last of the Wu Assassins, a long line of fighters tasked with killing the five Wu Warlords. The warlords all possess elemental supernatural powers tied to fire, wood, earth, metal, and water. These powers were conferred upon them by the Wu Xing: five shards that are absorbed into the body when touched. Kai's task is to kill the current crop of Wu Warlords, reassemble the shards, and send them back to heaven where they belong, thus ridding the world of their influence. Not that the Wu Xing are necessarily evil: we learn they reflect the character of whoever possesses them. It just so happens that bad people tend to crave the immense power they confer.

Excited to get back to the silly tower-defense action of Orcs Must Die with the series' next upcoming sequel? You'd better be ready to do so via a streaming high-speed Internet connection. That's because Google and Robot Entertainment announced today that Orcs Must Die 3 will be a Google Stadia exclusive when the game launches in spring of 2020.

In a Stadia Connect announcement today, Robot Entertainment CEO Patrick Hudson said Google invited his team to check out Stadia back in January of 2018, well before the service's public announcement earlier this year. "Right away it was a fantastic experience," he said. "I immediately saw it as the next transformative platform coming to the industry."

Design Director Jerome Jones was also on hand in the video to stress how, thanks to Stadia's centralized servers, the game will feature massive armies with 500 monsters clustered together in a tight space. Orcs Must Die 3 players won't be "subject to the power of their machine... everyone gets that same massive power," Jones said.
