Martial Arts Mayhem - Fistful of Vengeance (2022) - Review

Kai Jin, a young Chinatown chef in present-day San Francisco, becomes entangled with the Chinese Triad's pursuit of deadly ancient powers known as the "Wu Xing.

Martial Arts movies have always been fun for me to watch. Netflix has started to branch out into all genres and styles, and immerse itself right in the culture and it now includes Martial Arts. This movie reminds me of some of the Chow Yun-Fat movies from a couple of decades ago. Mixed with magic and mysticism, kung fu, guns, and swords. This one starts out rather chaotically like you are in the middle of the movie, and just keeps going from there. Lots of action and fighting, but it just didn't satisfy the storytelling for me. If you like martial arts this one seemed a little choreographed but a couple of scenes with Iko Uwais were very cool. When he grabs the knives from the street vendors' cart was my favorite. There are lots of better Martial arts movies out there, but this one is entertaining enough to kill a Sunday afternoon now that Football is over for the season. Let me know what you think.

Ranking 6.5/10
