Debuting on Blu-Ray and DVD this 4th of December is “Wu Dang”, a new enthralling kung-fu action-adventure from Patrick Leung, filmmaker behind “Blade of Kings”. Any type of kung-fu is, let’s face it, kick-ass and legitimately is kick-ass; but Leung’s “Wu Dang” makes it even better as he fleshes out for the first time in cinema, the art of Wu Dang kung-fu, and the mysticism of Yin and Yang. The movie’s tense and kick-ass martial arts sequences are crafted by action choreographer Corey Yuen from “Shaolin”, anything less than Yuen would be disappointing. And if you’re smart, when Yuen is choreographing, you know you’re in for some good stuff.
“Wu Dang” follows a greedy American man who brings his prodigal martial artist daughter to enter a kung-fu championship he sponsored himself. You have seen it coming, his hidden agenda: to steal the Wu Dang treasures rumored to be in the heart of the Wu Dang mountains. But both of their goals are put on hold as stiff competition among fellow thieves and loyal protectors of the treasure arouse to become formidable foes to them. Unexpected romance springs too, taking them a little too while to make it to the Wu Dang treasures. But when they found out about the nature of the treasure, their lives are changed forever.
The movie stars Wenzhuo Zhao (“Sacrifice”, “True Legend”), “Painted Skin: The Resurrection’s” Mi Yang and Sui-Wong Fan from the recent “Flying Swords of Dragon Gate 3D”. Fans will rejoice in grabbing “Wu Dang”on video, especially with the special features included in the package. Fans can go behind-the-scenes, watch extended and/or deleted scenes and for the heck of it, watch the trailer. All of these special features are in “Wu Dang”, coming to video stores December 4th, in both formats, DVD and Blu-Ray.
