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.
China, 1862: Lord Lindsey rules the opium trade and enslaves the innocent. The only hope for the oppressed nation is a covert group of trained Wushu Warriors - The Red Lotus Society - who will fight to restore justice to its people.
