Season 1: Warrior Nun – Review and Summary. Are you Going to watch then you need to read this Review before watching? Warrior Nun (2020) – Review, Recap, Ending, Summary. Main Stars: Alba Baptista. It is Released on 2 July 2020. It is created by Simon Barry.
Let’s get into it so after waking up in a morgue and orphan teen discovers that she now possesses superpowers as the chosen halo bearer for a secret sect of demon hunting nuns Alva Baptista plays ava who is our title character here and wow I didn’t know what to think about this show because I hope that you gonna like my summary. I am unfamiliar with the comics I knew Netflix was going to do something interesting with this.
They would how did it fare so b-Phlat honest with you this is a show that got off to an extremely slow start they tried to focus a bit too much on what I was kind of fearing they would do and that is the angsty teen type of show and not necessarily the fact that Ava is that kind of character but it does give us that impression in the first couple of episodes before it gets a chance to delve into the somewhat interesting lore.
It gets a chance to showcase us some action scenes which I actually thought for the budget what they were going forward, to be honest with you there were a few moments where it’s like well the budget clearly wasn’t the highest because of some of the CGI but you compare it to say a show on CW it feels about like that both in tone even though it gets a bit darker and the look and the style of the show but I do believe this is a show. This is gonna be an epic review and summary.
Who its audience is going to thank Buffy for the Vampire Slayer and you take that formula and kind of how that show is crafted you lend it to this source material with interesting lore that we finally start diving into in the latter half of the season and at the end of the day you’ve got a show that’s fairly entertaining pretty fun if it can get past some of the lackluster dialogs and that was another issue that I had it’s like they’re having these conversations and there’s also a method used.
There’s an internal monologue going on all throughout the show it’s Ava kind of telling yourself okay what’s going on here how are we going to solve this problem and it’s used as both exposition for the audience and just kind of a voiceover to narrate the entire series and while I think a lot of people are going to like that so please like the summary. I thought it was a bit much at times I said to myself I could probably figure out what’s going on it’s not too difficult to understand but there are a lot of elements at play here.
Why they chose to go that route it’s like I said there’s more than just our character of Ava and honestly, when we start exploring the other nuns and kind of this warrior force if you will that was almost as interesting as our main character and exploring their different powers and what they could do individually with guns and swords and every character has their different power set if you will I thought that was pretty cool and then this organization what they’re trying to do fight off these demons and as you explore that.
Who comes into play later and the villainous characters of sorts that were interesting as well so have a look at and like the summary. When they’re focusing on the relationships with Ava she’s coming out of a difficult situation I’m not going to spoil what that is specifically but she finally has the ability to not only do what she can do with her power set but in her words and you know this if you’re watching the show do what she’s always wanted to do have the ability to go out and kind of see the world for herself so as this organization is like hey we need you to do this thing.
You’re kind of important to what we’re doing here she says no I want to explore the world and travel and do my own thing and it’s that struggle to get her to kind of realize what she has to do what she’s destined to do and that is the ultimate warrior nun, yeah and I come back to something.
I’ve mentioned five times and that’s the lore and how they establish that with the halo and comparing it to something like avatar a very different show obviously but how its kind of passed down from generation to generation and for some reason it chose her she is in a way a chosen one and everyone keeps asking themselves okay why her it had to happen fill in the blank here but then we start to discover okay maybe she does kind of have this in her to be something more than just Ava girl with superpowers.
Let’s go find a relationship and every audience member as always is going to be different they’re going to respond to a certain aspect of the show whether it is the relationships between her and other characters one boy specifically that takes up a large chunk of the first half of the season or her calling to be this warrior nun with the action scenes that were very well done and like the review. I said and exploring the ins and outs of this world and trying to catch us up to what we should know before we go on this journey with her.
There are a lot of elements at play and like I said the first couple of three-four episodes at least took a while to get to the point maybe it’s because there are just a lot of throwaway conversations and interactions in this season. I hope that you would like my review. That’s one thing I’m looking forward to season two it’s like can we just trim the fat just a little bit get more to the point and allow what you did really well in season one to kind of take over in season two and make that the focus in the forefront of the show.
If that would have been the focus in this season I think I would have responded much more I still think it’s worth watching and I still think it’s better than some of these other shows in the same vein on Netflix and the audience is going to be there so I need you in the comments down below did you respond to warrior nun would you like to see me talk spoilers specifically about this show let me know all of those things if you enjoy these Netflix reviews.
I’m talking Netflix every single week and weekend be sure to smash that thumbs up button as for my score I’m going a solid positive score a 6 out of 10 a 60% for warrior none I think it did a lot of things right and I think it showed us the building blocks of what could be a great series down the line but again there were just a few too many conversations in there that we’re a bit cringe-worthy some of the dialogue it needs to step it up in the next couple of seasons but a lot of stuff there to make for a good show in the future so thank you guys much for watching this review.
