The new South Korean superhero series, Moving, hit Disney + on Friday. This is a series I have been looking forward to now for some time and I can tell you all that it was most definitely worth the wait.
Moving follows three single parents who all have super-human abilities due to a seedy intelligence agency carrying out experiments. Not only do the parents have these abilities but they have also been passed on to their three children. The parents have spent their lives Moving for home-to-home to avoid detection by the government agency. When all three children find themselves at the same high school, it becomes increasingly difficult to hide their abilities. And if they are exposed, the agency is always watching, waiting for the moment to happen.
I’m not familiar with the Moving comics, so I have no idea how much content there is or just how far this story goes. For some reason, I had it sorted in my mind that this would be over after 7 episodes and it was just a little mini-series. Then, I just remembered that we all live in a time of superhero franchises and more than likely, Moving would never ever have been picked up if it was a short story. Studios want franchises.
So, while I thought was an awesome series, it seemed more like a tease of the great things to come. It was funny and sweet with more than enough moments of hardcore Boys-like supe violence.
The series is about the kids, not the adults. They’re still learning and don’t have a clue how to use their powers properly – and the results are often hilarious. Most of the violence comes from the parents. They know they’re being hunted by the agency and have spent decades looking over their shoulders. Now, the agency has sent a badass supe assassin to kill them and this, folks, is where awesomeness comes in. The battles are ferocious, bloody and creative af.
I think I know where Moving is going, and I can’t wait for it to get there. Go check it out on Disney+ and let me know what you think of it. As always, thanks for reading.
