..outrageous, gravity-defying displays of kung fu wizardry --BeyondHollywood.com

Product Description

Wu Dang, a place where the treasure of martial arts TAI CHI originated. In early Republican China, rumors were going around about the treasure in Wudang Mountain. An American conspirator took his well-trained kung fu daughter to Wudang by sponsoring a Taoist martial arts competition, to steal the treasure. Out of expectation, a disciple represented Wudang to compete with other martial arts masters for the championship.

2.0 out of 5 stars Treasure hunting in 1920's China December 12, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
"Wu Dang" takes place in 1920's China. There is a rumor that secret treasure is hidden in Wu Dang Mountain. An American man, greedy for gold and riches, brings his daughter, a prodigy in martial arts, to compete for a championship title in kung fu combat, while planning to find and steal the riches for himself. It won't be easy. Fierce competition, dedicated protectors, and unexpected romance block the path to the Wu Dang fortune. The closer the treasure hunter gets to his prize, the more elusive it becomes.

This is strictly a movie for martial-arts fans. There is plenty of well-staged action, a simple plot, and passable visual effects. In Mandarin, with English subtitles, the movie begins promisingly enough, but soon sinks under the weight of a weak script.

There is a making-of featurette on the Blu-ray release.

With costumes by Oscar-winning designer Emi Wada, "Wu Dang" is a martial arts action movie that looks great, but lacks in most other ways.

Tang Yunlong (Vincent Zhao) is a treasure-hunting archaeology professor and martial arts fighter trying to locate seven artifacts and one holy sword. Tang Yulong and his daughter Tang Ning (Xu Jiao, who was Stephen Chow's young "son" in "CJ7") travel to a monastery in Wudang Mountains, where a martial arts tournament is about to be held. But there are other warriors looking for the same treasure, including a beautiful female fighter Tianxin (Yang Mi).

The story, which is set in a fictional China in the 1910s, looks like a cross between "Indiana Jones" and "Dragon Ball." Directed by Patrick Leung, the adventure film starts pretty well, but loses its momentum when the competition gets under way. With one dimensional personalities and non-existent back-story of characters, the film does not know what story it is trying to tell.

With actors like Dennis To as the tournament's organizer and Louis Fan as a young monk, as well as Hong Kong choreographer Corey Yuen, the film's old-style martial arts fight scenes (using wires and effects) are acceptable, but not very innovative. I like the film for its nice visuals but obviously "Wu Dang" needs a better story.

3.0 out of 5 stars language clarification June 12, 2013
By T. Wong
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Amazon states that language is cantonese but it is actually mandarin, which I prefer. I took a chance in buying it as I suspected that Amazon had incorrectly stated the language. Netflix also makes this common error. Since I am trying to learn some mandarin, accurate language information is important to me.

Format:Blu-ray
In the early days of Hollywood, serials used to play regular in the theatres. Each week, audiences would be treated to a new installment in a tale of blazing action, murderous intrigue, and high adventure! The hero would be a detective or a masked superhero or maybe a space soldier hoping to save the planet from certain doom, and each chapter would end with a cliffhanger meant to guarantee the audience would be back next week to find out how it all wrapped up. Steven Spielberg re-introduced audiences to the format in the early 80's with his popular Indiana Jones series of films, but when imitators couldn't quite capture the formula, the motion picture serial pretty much went bye-bye ... except to re-surface from time-to-time when audiences least expected it.

(Note: the following review may contain spoilers solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of smiler who prefers reviews entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to jump down to the last two paragraphs. Otherwise, buckle up and read on.)

According to legend, Wu Dang mountain conceals some serious treasures. Indeed, a few maps have escaped from the monastery, one falling into the hands of a professor / treasure hunter Tang Yunlong (played by Vincent Zhao). He takes his ailing prodigy daughter, Ning (Xu Jiao), to the mountain to complete in a kung fu championship, but his secret desire is to obtain the hidden seven artifacts for - together - they might hold the secret to curing her sickness. However, a female treasure hunter - Tian Xin (the lovely Yang Mi) - will stand in his way ... unless the two join forces to stop a deadly monk with aspirations of stealing the mysticism of Ying Yang in order to be turned into a god!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mountain of Wu Dang June 23, 2014
By Joe
Format:DVD
This is a well enough done movie - feels very much like the Asian National Treasure and Indiana Jones with wire martial arts and Yin Yang mysticism.

The action sequences are great, and the fight scene in the library was wonderfully choreographed, but there are a few weak spots.

The first is the tournament is not treated very tournament like - it is more of a side bar than the character it needs to be and could have been used more and in better ways.

The sleeping kung-fu was a bit lame, though it was humorous, but that could have been done better as well.

Over all, this was fun, and an enjoyable watch but the re-watch value is depleted once the case is solved.
