Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior - Destiny Awaits

Wendy Wu is the most popular girl in high school. She has a perfect boyfriend, she has the best fashion sense and she's a shoo-in for Homecoming Queen. What more could a girl ask for? Unfortunately for this teen queen, her world's about to be turned upside down when she finds out she is actually an ancient warrior in waiting!

Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior - Ancient Traditions

Despite her Chinese heritage, Wendy (and the rest of her family), hasn't ever paid attention to where she came from. Stories her grandmother attempted to pass on have fallen on deaf ears because Wendy's been too busy gossiping about boys and shopping at the mall. But when a mysterious Chinese monk arrives on her doorstep bearing news of an ancient evil spirit that is about to attack, Wendy is forced to start paying a lot closer attention to her culture.

Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior - Evil Spirits

Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior is a movie with a cool premise, but it doesn't exactly deliver it in the best possible way. You can see that the flick is trying to get a message across about the importance of remembering who you are and learning your heritage, but the message gets a little bit lost when Wendy spends more time trying to turn her mentor monk into an American teen than she does training to become a warrior.

Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior - DVD Features

The Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior DVD is packed with great special features. Watch Brenda Song train to learn all her kung fu moves, get the low-down on all the different Disney projects Brenda Song has worked on in the past and check out the never-before-seen alternate ending! Also, if you're a fan of Brenda's Disney Channel show, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, there's a bonus episode of the show on the disc too!

Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior - Bottom Line

Fans of martial arts, and of Brenda Song, will dig the Disney Channel movie, Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior. The movie's heart is definitely in the right place, but the story never has Wendy completely embracing her Chinese roots, which would have made it a lot better. Even though the message gets muddled, viewers will hopefully still get that it's cool to embrace your culture - whether that's Chinese, German, Brazilian or anywhere else your family may be from!

I'm pretty sure the reason a lot of people read the book was because 'everyone else was reading it,' and that is the reason I looked into Hunger Games as well, I won't lie. Don't get me wrong, I liked the Hunger Games and Catching Fire, but Mockingjay was a little boring. Not much happened until the very end, and by then my brain shut down. So, no.
