Zu Warriors (also known as The Legend of Zu in the Asia) is a 2001 Hong Kong Wuxia-fantasy film produced and directed by Tsui Hark. The film starred Ekin Cheng, Louis Koo, Cecilia Cheung, Patrick Tam, Zhang Ziyi and Sammo Hung. It is based on the same source as the 1983 film Zu Warriors from the Magic Mountain.
The film is set in mythical mountain range called "Zu", which exists between Heaven and Earth. The mountains are populated by immortals from Omei, who are in charge of keeping peace and eradicating evil. A demon called Insomnia desires to rule Zu and the world below, and starts annihilating several sects before arriving at Omei.
King Sky is in love with his teacher, Dawn, and she has just left him after disintegrating into dust. Before her departure, she gives him her weapon, the Moon Orb, and tells him that the Orb will lead him to her eventually. King Sky joins Omei in their fight against Insomnia. The Omei manage to corner Insomnia using their weapon, the Sky Reflector, but the demon retreats into the legendary Blood Cave after its defeat. The cave is capable of sucking away the powers of those who venture near it and has been highly sought by many masters.
White Brows, leader of Omei, decides to enter a new dimension to search for a new weapon to deal with Insomnia, after the Sky Reflector is lost in the cave. He leaves behind the Flame of Omei, which burns as he lives. Omei’s oldest disciple, Red, is placed in charge of guarding the entrance to the Blood Cave and alerting others if Insomnia emerges. King Sky becomes a temporary leader of Omei.
Red meets Amnesia, a little flower demon, and is possessed by her. Amnesia takes control over Red’s mind and forces him to move against his will. Enigma of Omei is actually the reincarnation of Dawn, and she has some faint recollections of her past after meeting King Sky. Enigma and Hollow, who wield the two supporting divine swords of Omei respectively, attempt to merge as one, but fail and Omei is severely damaged. Hollow is destroyed but a new human body is formed from the remnants of his soul.
However, the new Hollow (renamed to Ying) does not remember his past and has no clue to using his weapon.
Just as Insomnia prepares for another attack to destroy Omei and rule Zu forever, King Sky confronts the possessed Red and attempts to force Amnesia out of Red’s body. The forces of good and evil prepare for a final battle in the skies above Zu, which have been overshadowed by Insomnia’s Blood Clouds.
