I’ve been curious about Wu Dang ever since I saw the first trailer. Skipping over all of the Vincent Zhao drama, Wu Dang looked like a movie that could be hit or miss for me. I thought there was a lot of wirework going on, and I was right. There is a TON of wirework in this film, judging by the making of video that has been released. Sorry, it’s not subbed.
I know that some people out there like wirework, and I typically don’t mind it. It just seems really excessive to me, like every move is showy and exaggerated (like Fan Siu Wong saving those ducks.) If you like that sort of thing, Wu Dang may be your cup of tea.
I don’t think I’ll be rushing out to see this one anytime soon, but I’ll be sure to check it out to see if it’s what I expect and for review purposes.
Wu Dang comes out on July 17th, so there is still plenty of time for Wu Dang to sway my opinion as well.
