Audience Member ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????XDDD ?????... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Wu Dang is simple enough as an entertaining martial arts period piece, but I feel like it did not fulfill its potential. It starts off as an Indiana Jones with kung fu type movie, which is really cool. However, about halfway through the movie is bogged down by way too many subplots including a love interest for the protagonist, a love interest for his daughter, magical artifacts, two villains, and it loses focus. The martial arts sequences and camera work are solid, but the CGI is pretty bad and noticeable. If the second half of the film were a bit more tightened, it would have made for a much better movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Wu Dang starts by shaping up to be an interesting picture but it quickly looses steam by having no real direction to flow towards and ends up dragging itself on the ground to its whacky conclusion. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Story was pretty retarded. The chinese are always trying to come up with crazy new stories bc a typical one, although good, is played out. I only gave this movie a good rating because the fighting was good and creative. Made for a fun watch if you like (fake) martial arts action Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Just another cheesy martial arts flick... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Part Indiana Jones, part Bloodsport, Wu Dang is all wirefu! While some of the fight sequences are quite good, most leave you unsatisfied. I don't mind Wire-Fu but it shouldn't be in every move of every fight scene and actions need to be done with some realistic force. If someone is kicked a far distance, don't they should fly really fast and make a loud crash. When it came to landing hits and having things break, Wu Dang sounded quite tame. There was no base, no thud. Nothing sounded like it hit with any kind of impact. The story itself is ok and allows for the setting up of all the multitude and variety of fight sequences but when the fights aren't strong enough to carry the film, even a light love story isn't going to save things. Great set pieces and costuming help along with some interesting though slightly out of place FX sequences but Wu Dang ultimately fails to deliver the impact necessary.
