It was the August of 2019 when we saw Kai trying to contemplate the words “you are the Wu Assassin”. The 10 episode miniseries was certainly a great action thriller that was the perfect blend of mythology, supernatural powers, and realism. Through the course of the series, we saw Kai embrace his power and fight the horrors that wish to wreak havoc upon this world. But what exactly happens after the finale? Wu Assassins: Fistful of Vengeance is here to answer that.
What is this standalone film about?
In Wu Assassins, we saw Iko Uwais as Kai Jin, a San Francisco chef who learns that he is ‘The Chosen One’. Given to him are the powers of a thousand monks who sacrificed their lives in order to empower a chosen one. Jin, albeit reluctantly, ends up fighting the five Wu Warlords, who are also in San Francisco.
Although the series follows the common ‘Chosen One’ trope, fans certainly loved this Netflix series. Not only did it have some really great scenes between Iko Uwais and Byron Mann, but the fight scenes are also unmatched. If you’re looking for a fun watch with a little action packed into it, Wu Assassins is the right thing for you.
Continuing this very same pattern is Wu Assassins: Fistful of Vengeance. It is a standalone feature film, running for about 90 minutes. The film picks up right after the events of the finale of the series. Kai and his allies are coming together again to avenge the death of their friend.

We saw Wu Assassins on the screens in August 2019. Netflix confirmed that there will be a feature film on the series in the February of 2021. The platform announced on Twitter that fans will be seeing the film on February 17, 2021.
