The second season of Warrior is now tearing shit up over on BINGE. Based on a pitch by martial arts legend Bruce Lee, the historical beat-em-up sees a savagely talented kung fu exponent, Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji), venture to 1870s San Francisco in search of his missing sister, only to get caught up in the brutal Tong Wars between rival Chinese gangs. Much kicking ensues.
It’s just the latest echo of Lee’s immortal legacy since his untimely death at the age of 32 back in 1973. Lee remains not just the most influential martial artist of all time (“just” doesn’t feel like the right word in that sentence) but a cinematic icon and a milestone in Asian onscreen representation, and his influence continues to be felt. Let us count the ways.
