Netflix movies and shows: Warrior Nun
Warrior Nun was another show that premiered this summer that was mostly overlooked despite being pretty good. If you like action and nuns (or just women in general) kicking butt, you should definitely check out this show.
The story is based on Ben Dun’s comic series of the same name and focuses on Ava, a disabled orphaned teen who wakes up in the morgue able to move when she was paraplegic before. Why can she move now? Because a religious relic was shoved into her back and has given her powers.
With a new lease on life, she decides to do all the things she thought she couldn’t do before and eventually meets up with a group of people her age who squat in rich people’s houses. But that is not the only change in her life.
She also discovers that because of the relic in her back, she is now part of the Order of the Cruciform Sword who are destined to fight demons that come to Earth. Pretty cool, right?
She also must deal with people and demons wanting the power from the artifact in her spine. It also doesn’t help that the enemies of the Order know how to kill her since they just killed the woman who preceded her before she showed up. Lots of people are looking to find and control her.
There are also some great training scenes in this series. Ava doesn’t exactly know how to use her powers or how to fight off demons and learning is not as easy as you might think for someone with so much power from an ancient artifact. She gets the crap beaten out of her a couple times.
The show also features one of the best characters ever in Shotgun Mary, played by Toya Turner. She is the epitome of a warrior and she’s witty, will fight anyone, and cares deeply for the other people in the Order.
If you missed this series this summer, now is the time to check it out. It’s already been renewed for a second season which is great considering it ended on a cliffhanger.
