Antony Szeto has shown up in many departments for various films. For Wushu: The Young Generation, he elects to step into the director's chair. This may not be brilliant film making, but it is entertaining nonetheless.

The plot for this 1 hour 40 minute picture is fairly weak. However, this film rarely gets boring. For the most part, the pacing is quick and a good portion of the film style is playful, which is why there are times where this movie is placed in the family film genre. The music is upbeat and a bit childish and there are also multiple split screen shots and sliding scene transitions.

The first 15 minutes follows 5 children attending martial arts school before jumping forward to their young adult years. The sequence where this transition happens is nicely done. There are 2 parts to this story. The main portion deals with the students competing in a martial arts tournament. The other part of the story deals with kidnapping and this only exists to prolong the movie and add more action outside of the competition.

The action comes in bunches and the choreography is quite impressive. About half of the fights and shows come in the competition, while the rest appear outside with the kidnapping plot. It is the 5 students performing all the action, but Sammo Hung shows he still has the moves, as he steps in for a battle.

The acting isn't that great. There is a bit of overacting at times, but it does tend to fit in with the style of film. The actors themselves do perform their own stunts and this is a plus.

Wushu: The Young Generation lacks a sophisticated plot, but it is still a fun movie to watch.
