Netflix's brand new violent comedy starring Michelle Yeoh already has viewers hooked

The new film featuring Michelle Yeoh is streaming on Netflix right now.

A brand new Netflix comedy starring Michelle Yeoh has viewers hooked just hours after releasing.

If you're a subscriber to Netflix - let's face it, who's not - then you'll know it can be difficult to know what to put on.

Scrolling through each category and finding something to watch is never easy - even with a handy-dandy code - so seeing what others are talking about online is always helpful.

And the current talk of the town is The Brothers Sun, an eight-part series telling a rather dark and violent story with many comedic elements.

Have a look at the trailer here:

An official synopsis for The Brothers Sun reads: "When a mysterious enemy targets his family, a Taipei triad member heads to Los Angeles to protect his strong-willed mother and oblivious younger brother."

Yeoh stars in Netflix's latest as Mama Sun herself, with the likes of Justin Chien, Sam Li, Alice Hewkin and Maddison Hu are also being involved.

“When Brad Falchuk and Byron Wu put their heads together, they came up with this explosive, dark comedy, violent but fun and funny,” Yeoh told Tudum.

"It is really a good story about family and what it takes to be family… and they take us on this incredible, crazy-ass ride."

And it appears that subscribers are well and truly loving that ride - with many flocking to social media to provide their thoughts.

"This The Brothers Sun sh*t or whatever it’s called isssss f**king fire," one X (formerly known as Twitter) user said.

"The Brothers Sun is a 10," a second added.

Another remarked: "The Brothers Sun is way too funny," while a fourth quipped: "The Brothers Sun probably should have been a feature instead of a series, but Michelle Yeoh's performance is, as usual, worth the 8-hour investment."

And a final viewer said: "Action comedy series THE BROTHERS SUN on @netflix delivers in the way Hong Kong cinema used to by mixing broad comedy, amazing violent fight scenes and sentimentality. Bravo!"

The Brothers Sun currently sits at an impressive 85 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes - making it a must-watch for Netflix subscribers.

Jack Seale from the Guardian said: "The Brothers Sun is not bothered about surprising us if it can keep entertaining us."

While the Financial Times' Dan Eivan penned: "While The Brothers Sun allows itself moments of more emotion and introspection, the show never takes itself so seriously that its slightly contrived, pulpy plot invites much scrutiny."
