Tsui Hark has always been a man of special vision, and fortunately for all of us, he looked at the film scene in early '80s Hong Kong and recognized that there were nowhere near enough psychedelic, laser-powered kids movies. So he packed up his cameras, his lasers and 14 miles of eyebrows (you'll understand when you see the movie) and made ZU: WARRIORS FROM THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN.

I'll be damned if I can explain what the movie's about. There's a quest or something. But oh my what a truly jaw-dropping collection of flying wizards, flying warriors, flying beautiful kung fu ladies and everything else that can be rigged to a harness and sent careening through the air while on fire or whatever.

It's a mind-ripping excursion into magical Chinese fantasy land and if you don't like it you're just wrong. (Lars)
