      Lucy Maher Common Sense Media The characters are likeable and exhibit strong values... and in Wendy audiences will find a perfectly contemporary -- and relatable -- heroine. Rated: 4/5 Sep 11, 2019 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures it's a pleasure to see Brenda Song actually get her own vehicle on the Disney Channel Rated: 3/5 Jan 28, 2007 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews The script, penned by no less than four writers (!), is as vapid and brainless as Wendy Wu herself... Rated: 1.5/4 Nov 4, 2006 Full Review David Cornelius DVDTalk.com The action is slick and the family theme is sweet, but Wendy Wu ultimately collapses under the weight of all that obligatory Disney Channel formula. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 31, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alain M "Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior" receives a modest 2-star rating, falling into the typical realm of over-the-top Disney teenage fare. Starring Brenda Song as the titular character Wendy Wu, the film follows her journey from a typical high school teenager to a warrior destined to save the world. Supporting actors include Shin Koyamada as Shen, Wendy's love interest, and Susan Chuang as Wendy's mother. While the film boasts colorful visuals and energetic performances, it ultimately succumbs to formulaic storytelling and predictable plot twists. The characters, while endearing in their own right, often feel like caricatures rather than fully developed individuals. The dialogue, while occasionally witty, leans heavily on clichés and lacks depth. Despite its shortcomings, "Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior" may still hold appeal for younger audiences looking for a lighthearted adventure with a dose of martial arts action. However, for viewers seeking a more nuanced and engaging cinematic experience, the film may leave much to be desired. Overall, while "Wendy Wu" may entertain in moments, it ultimately fails to rise above the standard fare of Disney's teenage offerings, earning it a modest 2-star rating. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Rosana B Um misto de bonitinho e ao mesmo tempo entediante, protagonista super carismática, um roteirozinho simples, efeitos razoáveis, as cenas de lutas eu pulo, nem analiso, porque eu não curto muito, mas de resto foi válido e até engraçadinho... Saldo regular, quase bom... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review derek l Despite Brenda Song doing her best to salvage the film with her performance, everything else fell very flat from several questionable aspects, the underwhelming story and writing that had relied a lot on stereotypes and tropes that would not age very well to this day. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A film with a crescendo like plot leading to a fast pace and action pack ending. While all this is great its what is in the middle that really succeeds from character depth, heart, culture discovery etc. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member it was ok but kinda dull Disney family movie Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Good concept, some parts are very unrealistic though Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews
