Zu Warriors from the Magic Mountain is a 1983 Hong Kong film. It is a supernatural fantasy adventure with wuxia elements. The film was directed by Tsui Hark, who intended to combine Hong Kong action cinema with western special effects technology. It was nominated for five Hong Kong Film Awards in 1984 (Best Action Choreography - Corey Yuen, Best Actress - Brigitte Lin, Best Art Direction - William Chang, Best Film Editing - Chi Kong Sheck and Best Picture).
The film had many versions of the story. The real plot is the Chinese one. Dubbed prints exist as Zu Time Warrior, which include scenes set in the 20th Century. There is a brief reference to this in the dialogie of the climax in the original version. Tsui has said that Zu Time Warrior represents his true intentions on the film, but also expressed that he thought the film was too old for people to care about anymore. The UK release of the DVD by Hong Kong Legends features an audio commentary with Tsui and film critic Bey Logan.
The film grossed HK $15,872,222 at the Hong Kong box office.
