Warrior Nun may not break the mold when it comes to supernatural adventure, but it tells its unexpected "chosen one" story very well and is carried quite nicely by lead Alba Baptista in her first English-speaking role.

When it picks up a full head of steam, as it does in the final couple of episodes during a mission to the Vatican, you can easily see Warrior Nun running and running.

It’s occasionally delightful, thanks largely to Ms. Baptista, who is spunky, petite and bears a striking resemblance to the actress Ellen Page. But the atmosphere is co-opted wholesale from someone’s hysterical view of Catholicism, and as such it feels not profane exactly, but more than a little obvious.

Warrior Nun‘s main issue is that one half of its story is just infinitely more engaging than the other. ... The saving grace of Warrior Nun‘s more tedious aspects is Baptista herself, whose performance as Ava looks effortlessly charming while still doing a ton of heavy lifting.

The script can sometimes lean too much on mythological and religious exposition as the nuns explain their mission to Ava, but the actors have such good chemistry that their various pairings—Mary and Ava, Ava and Beatrice, Mary and Lilith—work, and the smartly choreographed fight scenes are well-placed.

Thematically, Warrior Nun is nothing you haven't seen before, and aesthetically, nothing you ever want to see again. Bleak, dour and trudging, the series contains none of the kitschy, blasphemous fun of its title.
