Set against the backdrop of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the aftermath of the Civil War, Warrior tells the story of a young martial arts prodigy, newly arrived from China, who finds himself caught up in the bloody Chinatown Tong wars.
Cinemax appears to be delivering a slick martial arts drama that’s far more grounded than AMC’s Into The Badlands. As a fan of period pieces and crime action, I’m pretty excited for this series.
Warrior shines a light on American history that is rarely ever explored. It is my hope that if the series does well, there will be a newfound respect for martial arts and a rise of Asian American film stars.
Look for Warrior on Cinemax on April 5th.
