In case you do acknowledge Sinead MacInnes’ face, you have got a pointy eye, because it used to be most commonly noticed in complete addiction when she seemed in Netflix’s wild comedian guide adaptation Warrior Nun. That hyper-violent pride made its manner to the platform in 2020, and located an orphaned teenager (Alba Baptista) waking from dying to uncover the divine artifact embedded in her particular person has bequeathed her superpowers that let her to sign up for a secretive order of nuns who spend their days searching and killing Earth-bound demons.
Sure, Warrior Nun (in keeping with a comic book guide sequence from Ben Dunn) is each bit as bonkers because it sounds. And sure, it is each bit as amusing, with the sequence offering sufficient stylized gun-slinging motion, pulp-tinged storytelling, and theological sojourns to go well with the bloodlust and brain-craves of each small display screen viewer. However even because the butt-kicking Sisters of the Historic Order of the Cruciform Sword all shed their percentage of blood in Warrior Nun‘s ten season 1 episodes, few did so with rather as a lot verve and unabashed pleasure because the aptly named Sister Red.
That used to be certainly Sinead MacInnes portraying the venomous, blood-loving Sister who in the end (and unsuccessfully) led a complete blown Reject Nun rise up in opposition to the Mom Superion (Sylvia De Fanti) and the Cruciform Sword devoted. Sadly, MacInnes’ time on Warrior Nun used to be lovely restricted, as stated rise up used to be in the end quashed with impunity. Even in this type of restricted time, alternatively, MacInnes made the lots of the second, imbuing her persona with a fallible (if close to psychotic) humanity, and appearing some severe motion chops to boot.
In fact, given the way in which issues became out for Sister Red it sort of feels not going she’ll go back for season 2 of Warrior Nun, however one can hope.
