You won't find more essential Hong Kong Cinema than director Tsui Hark's 1983 blockbuster Zu - Warriors From The Magic Mountain
! A fantasy epic detailing the plight of ordinary humans thrust into a supernatural battle of the gods, Zu
stars Yuen Biao as Ti Ming Chi, a faceless soldier caught in pointless battles between warring Chinese clans. While escaping into the Zu Mountains, Ming Chi meets up with master swordsman Ting Yin (Adam Cheng), and somehow gets dragged on a dangerous quest to seek out the legendary Twin Swords. The swords may be the only weapons capable of stopping an all-consuming ancient evil, that until now has only been held in check by the venerable Long Brows (Sammo Hung). Their journey brings them many challenges and allies, including bumbling monks Hsiao Yu and Yi Chen (Damian Lau and Mang Hoi), and the Countess (Brigitte Lin), the powerful mistress of the Jade Pool Fairy Fortress. But when Ting Yin gets possessed by the evil, it's up to the relatively ordinary Ming Chi and Yi Chen to complete the master's quest, and wield the Twins Swords for the good of all humanity!
Acrobatic action sequences, a host of Hong Kong Cinema stars, and Tsui Hark's infectiously energetic direction has made Zu - Warriors From the Magic Mountain a timeless audience favorite. But it's really the complex, wildly entertaining story and the unprecedented use of special effects that have raised the film to classic Hong Kong Cinema status!
This edition includes eight postcards and special features (trailers, slideshow and Yuen Biao interview).
