Trivia

While shooting the kick boxing match between actor Yongchen Liu (playing Xiao Zhang) and Yachao Wang (playing Li Er), Liu was hit unconscious and sent to hospital. Because of that a stuntman was used to double Liu for when Xiao Zhang gets kicked the final time by Li Er out of the boxing ring. The first stuntman ripped a muscle in his left shoulder when testing the fall. A second stuntman dislocated his left shoulder while filming the first shot. Both were sent to hospital. Finally, pressured by the hospitalization of three people in a day, the director Szeto did the stunt himself. He did the stunt several times before getting the shot he needed. See more »

This is Entertainment!
22 March 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There's been a lot of hype about this film, and as a fan of kung fu films I've been looking forward to seeing it. The other thing that made me interested is the director, Antony Szeto, cause I saw his first film Dragon Blade in the theaters. Dragon Blade was a kid's computer animated film but the martial arts action in it is far more superior to the jumping around camera shots used for the fights in Kung Fu Panda. And Dragon Blade had a well thought out story to it, unlike the run of the mill production-line senseless stories that have been coming out of Hong Kong over the last ten/fifteen years. In Wushu, the director again gives us something unexpected, and again a well thought out story. As a family film it has something for everyone and I enjoyed myself throughout it. The story of the kids growing up in a poor single parent family is both touching and current, and I thought the way wushu as a sport was presented was very smart. Sammo Hung's performance as the father and teacher was surprisingly good... he should have got an award for it! Though the fight scenes in it don't number enough to satisfy the die hard action over all else fans, the main fight scene where Sammo comes up against the main bad guy is fantastic edge of the seat stuff. All in all, I laughed at the fun parts, was touched by the father-son relationship, was excited by the action, and amazed by the skills. This film was all out good entertainment... and in the end isn't that what we all pay to watch a film for?
