The heavy-handed approach to the slim story bogs the film down so badly that even hardcore fans will find their patience tested to the limits as they wait in vain hope for some of the old excitement to arise.

Audience Reviews for Shu shan zheng zhuan (The Legend of Zu) (Zu Warriors)

Absolutely awesome.... Although this movie is old, the visuals are stunning! I don't know why they didn't consider this bunch of film makers for the Dragonball Evolution movie?? Makes Dragonball evolution look like crap!!!!

Tsui Hark's The Legend of Zu is one unique action fantasy adventure.Believe it or not, there is a story, however it is rather difficult to grasp. Why? This film is just so fast paced that the 1 hour and 40 minutes will fly by like nothing. The first 30 minutes is just all action, CG, action, CG, and more action. It almost seems like the finale, and that the film will jump back in time. It doesn't. In fact, the action at the end is able to top this introduction.The CG and special effects are ALL OVER THE PLACE. Seriously, it is non-stop. Some of it looks good and some of it doesn't. However, this film is so deep in the fantasy genre, that the CG doesn't seem so bad. In fact, it just blends in with the atmosphere.The cast is stellar. On the male's side there is Ekin Cheng, Louis Koo, Wu Jing, and Sammo Hung. The beautiful ladies in this film are Cecilia Chung, Kelly Lin, and Zhang Ziyi. All do decent jobs with that they are given. The characters just lack the depth they need to really mean anything.The Legend of Zu is all about the action and effects and less about the story and characters. Fans of these types of fantasy adventures will want to give this a try.
