Warrior is entirely fictional and where the fighter was immersed in the familiar sweat and blood of boxing, the warrior’s arena is the newer one of mixed martial arts. Warrior is a crime drama about community, loyalty, and treachery amongst war veterans, bikers, and the police force, with a love story surrounding the war veteran CC and the police officer Louise.
This series is scrappy, messy, violent, decadent, politically incorrect yet it is Riveting. The plotline, the issues then immigration, prejudice, misconceptions’, racism, greed, good, evil-resonate, with us today, and are jammed together with love, brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal in such slickness and stylish verve that you feel like crying when the season end.
This series is written by the king of martial arts BRUCE LEE himself, the series tells the story of a young martial arts prodigy man named Ah Sahm who comes to China in search of his sister who marries a Chinese tong leader to save his brother(Ah Sahm) and his family’s lives. Once he finally found her, to his surprise she is no longer an innocent, loving, and caring sister as she was before she left. Instead, she rules one of the most powerful tongs in Chinatown alongside her husband.
Most parts of the series are shot in Cape Town studios in South Africa. The visual artist as you have seen in the episodes has done a fantastic job in representing them. The camerawork, environment, and most importantly the script for the series are very catchy.
Warrior is not only about the action sequences which I have to say well-choreographed but also the story and the character arcs get interesting with each passing episode. You can actually see the historic building itself into what it is today in San Francisco and in other cities. It covers every fraction of citizens and the struggle they had to face. These series have little touches of history with imagination built a good storyline.
This series is a perfect package for action and entertainment and a must watch series.
