From official release/information:
As Evil Dead 2 is the final zombie movie, as Touch of Evil is the ultimate film noir, so Zu Warriors is the last swordplay fantasy; though future filmmakers will find new ways to handle such material (and already have), after this point, it's all recycling. A passionate, hyperactive send-up of and send-off to the genre, Zu Warriors takes all its familiar elements and themes to their wildest possible extremes, dizzily displays its definitive familiarity with them, and leaves them so thoroughly exploded, that they'll never work the same way again.
