‘Fistful Of Vengeance’ Trailer: Iko Uwais Lets His Fists Fly In Netflix’s ‘Wu Assassins’ Movie

People told me that Wu Assassins was a show that I would love, and dammit I didn’t listen. Never got around to it, despite it being led by The Raid‘s Iko Uwais. But there’s still time for me and anyone else who missed the series to rectify that before the debut of Fistful of Vengeance, a followup movie that brings back most of the original cast.

Fistful of Vengeance picks up where the fist-flying supernatural martial arts action of Wu Assassins‘ first season left off. Uwais returns as San Francisco chef Kai Jin, who discovers that he is the last of the Wu Assassins, imbued with the power and spirit of 1,000 ancient monks, abilities he must use to protect the world. Reunited with his friends Lu Xin (Lewis Tan) and Tommy (Lawrence Kao), Kai hunts down the one who murdered Tommy’s sister, facing familiar enemies and new ones, while also trying to stop an ancient, mystical threat.

The film is directed by Roel Reine, who directed episodes of Wu Assassins, as well as Marvel’s Inhumans and the underrated Death Race sequels.

Fistful of Vengeance hits Netflix on February 17th.


Fistful of Vengeance will see the Wu Assassin team reunite in Bangkok to avenge the death of one of their own, only to find that their new enemy is an ancient threat armed with otherworldly powers.
