  1. It seems that the way to go for Alain Desrochers is to direct the most cliché-ridden scripts available to him.

    His take on "The Fast and The Furious" was the forgettable "Nitro". Now, he goes "Crouching Tiger/Onk-Bak" with this boring martial arts adventure, even more forgettable.

    This tale of revenge, while well shot, will make you lose interest once you see Matt Frewer as the bad guy, delivering the kind of dialogue a 10 year old kid uses when playing with his action figures.

    The combat scenes are as best as they can afford, meaning they're pretty lame. Everybody fights kinda slowly, going through the steps of the choreography like grade schoolgirls doing an unrehearsed Swan Lake.

    Sure, today's technology allows the post production team to easily erase the wires during the less than spectacular acrobatics, but you can still feel those wires supporting the fighters in many of the confrontations. Embarrassing.

    Other digital effects are on par with today's video games. Not tody's movies.

    Yeah, I realize I don't spend a lot of time talking about the plot: it's just not worth my time. Nor yours.

    You'd be better off seeing a Uwe Boll film if you want to be entertained: at least, he's decent at sucking and his movies are laughable. Alain Desrocher's Wushu Warrior won't event make you laugh at it. It's just a boring, unremarkable waste of your time.

  2. Worst movie ever. From unrealistic plot to bad acting to limping with the wrong leg. hands down the worst, cheesiest movie I have ever seen. It looks like it was directed by 10 year olds. the acting is horrible. Shall I go on? Their use of cheesy wires to glide around.

    Another perplexing occurrence, half the actors are speaking Chinese dubbed to English, but the other actors are responding in English. What is the reason for this? They are speaking two different languages. I could see this in some 1970s martial arts movie when none of the Asian actors spoke English, but this movie is freakin 2010! WTF!? They couldn't find Asian people who spoke English? Come on… Such a bad movie…

    It was on and I was in the mood for a martial arts flick but seriously… just say no

  3. I was relaxing at home at midnight with a plate of take-out and a beer. I figured that this was a great time for a turn off your brain movie, so I started flipping through the wasteland.

    I landed upon a 12:05am showing of Wushu Warrior on The Movie Channel. I figured this would be great. Cheesy kung-fu movies and beer are a winning combination. Unfortunately, what I got was a cheesy kung-fu movie that took itself way too seriously.

    If ever there was a movie that should realize that it didn't have the budget, fight choreography, acting talent, writing and post production work needed to take itself seriously, it should be this one. I mean, in the opening "I want to learn your ways" bit a guy teleports, and then tells the main character that there's a dragon inside everyone.

    The movie's big fight sequence is literally about 60 seconds long, apparently both because there wasn't anyone on the film that could fight convincingly and because the screenwriter thought his plot was freaking amazing. The story's hackily-written cliché upon cliché, and when it isn't being poorly dubbed in English, it's being delivered with all the ability of a elementary school performance.

    Bottom line, this isn't even worth killing time at midnight, and the laughs from the poor production can't justify wasting your time on this. Much sadness.

  4. If I could go with 0 stars I would! This must be made for a children's network channel or something. This entire movie could be a sub plot for Walker Texas Ranger.

    The acting in this film is just atrocious. (SPOILERS COMING UP) There will be a scene when the adoptive father of the main character disappears and reappears up in the rafters.. when that happens you'll think to yourself "Self, I should turn this off" and you should listen! It would be better to watch anything that the Lifetime network can throw at me than to watch this again!

    Plot: A boys father is killed and he is raised in a remote village by the adoptive ninjas. There he learns of his inner dragon and for about 10 years learns martial arts. Trying to prove that he belongs as part of the village, he try's to gather information about a continuing ploy to enslave Chinese people. When the other guy on the mission gets spotted, he starts yelling his name out and they both get seen. While trying to get away, they are seen by the 1,000th person who happens to be the villains daughter and they kidnap her. Rest of the story you can get from Madam Chleo it's so predictable.

    ***SPOILER*** As for the ending, it ends almost mid-thought and almost makes you wonder if they'd attempt a sequel; for the love of everything Holy just stop the bleeding now!
