Based on the original concept by Bruce Lee, Warrior showcases a martial arts drama as you’ve never seen before. Set in the 1870s, the series follows a martial arts prodigy who heads to San Francisco from China in search for his sister.
Warrior TV Series Preview
The life of our main character, Ah Sahm, however, takes an unexpected change when he is sold into a powerful organisation known as a tong. This turn of events sees Ah become embroiled in the gang wars taking place in San Francisco. In a city where he is subjected to significant anti-Chinese sentiment while fighting in a war, he previously knew little about, the show’s protagonist gets a lot more than he bargained for when he moves to the States.
The first season of Warrior, which was the brainchild of Bruce Lee over 50 years ago, is packed to the brim with violence, sex and martial arts – what more could you want? Brilliantly acted, the show features Andrew Koji as Ah Sahm as well as Olivia Cheng and Jason Tobin, with the cast a significant reason for its early success. Nominated for a Primetime Emmy, the debut season Warrior lives up to the lofty expectations set for it prior to release and is a must-watch for lovers of drama and action.
