Chinese soldiers in an ancient civil war get caught up in a fantastical quest to save the universe.
American filmmaker John Carpenter has stated that Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain (1983) was an influence on his 1986 film Big Trouble in Little China (1986).
The international English language version, Zu Time Warriors, includes a 25-min. wraparound filmed in Canada with Yuen Biao as a modern day fencing champ transported via his dreams while in a coma to the Oriental fantasy setting of the film and awakening from the coma at the end. The Chinese version was released prior to this filming despite director's wishes.
