Jiang Ziya: Rise of the Warrior God (2018) Chinese Monsters!
Jiang Ziya: Rise of the Warrior God (2018) Chinese Monsters!
4513DVD
 



original Chinese title XIN FENG SHEN JIANG ZIYA [Jiang Ziya: Rise of the Warrior God]
also known as LEGEND OF JIANG ZIYA

director: Zhong Wei-xi and Yang Shu-ai
starring: Chan Ho-man Niu Ze-meng Ai Yanjie Lin Fran-feng

  

    

Loosely based on the Chinese mythological legend of divine warrior Jiang Ziya [Investiture of the Gods], a Chinese 'superman' who helped overthrow the corrupt King Shang and establish the Zhou Dynasty in 1128 BC. There are many different stories about Ziya (who was also known by several other names), but most deal with his relationship - both good and bad - to the gods and his quest towards divinity. Most Chinese schoolchildren know he was a great fisherman just as American kids know George Washington chopped down a cherry tree.

This film paints young Jiang Ziya as a handsome, arrogant warrior who possesses some magical qualities but is relatively naive about his abilities and how to use them. When he attempts to challenge the Devil, against the wishes of his divine superior, he has violated the Code of the Gods. As punishment, Ziya gets banished to the mortal realm, where he's saved and nursed back to health by a young woman, Qing Luan. But the Devil decides to toy with Ziya by creating various monsters that begin slaughtering Qing Luan's community.

This is an enjoyable FX-laiden debut project by Zhong Weixi and Yang Shuai, two art directors who work in the Beijing Iqiyi studios.


A Chinese film with Chinese and English subtitles; widescreen format (16:9), (72 minutes),
