Film: Wu Dang
A 2012 Wushu film directed by Patrick Leung about a pair of thieves using a martial arts competition to steal seven treasures from the legendary Taoist temple at Wudan Mountain.
This film contains examples of:
- A God Am I: White Dragon's actual plan
- Action Girl: Tianxin and Tang Ning
- All Chinese People Know Kung-Fu: Somewhat justified, given that it's set at a legendary martial arts school and almost everyone else is present for a martial arts competition.
- Back from the Dead: Tianxin in the ending
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Many
- Battle Couple: Tianxin and Yunlong
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Tianxin and Yunlong
- Dance Battler: Combat sequences are deliberately shot to look like dances more than once.
- Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting: Yes.
- Heroes Fight Barehanded
- Kick the Dog: Paul Chen threatening to shoot Tang Ning
- Kung-Fu Kid: Tang Ning
- Lightning Can Do Anything: A key component of White Dragon's ritual at the end
- Little Miss Badass: Guess. Yes. Tang Ning again.
- Never Bring a Knife to a Fist Fight: Our barehanded heroes defeat many sword- and polearm-wielding foes. Also Paul Chen's gun never seems to accomplish much.
- No More Emperors: Set in the 1910s
- Pinky Swear
- Theme Music Power-Up: Yunlong's returns to the fight during the final duel against White Dragon are accompanied by Ominous Latin Chanting
- Throwing Your Sword Always Works: The protagonists spend more time throwing melee weapons than using them.
- Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Tang Ning
- Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Used by Tianxin to pretend that her search for the Sutra was more arduous than it was.
- Wushu: Uses the classical Wushu reference of Wudan Mountain
