It was the darkest times in China, when ruthless warlords waged battles to satiate their endless aggression. Millions of lives were perished, and those who survived had only two choices ? To kill or be killed. The battalions of warring states Liang and Wei collided in a bloodbath that lasted from dawn till dusk. Only two men were left standing ? A FOOT SOLDIER from Liang (Jackie Chan) and the rival GENERAL from Wei (Wang Leehom). The soldier could survive because he?s an expert in playing dead, with a device strapped on his body that could protrude an arrowhead for added realismThe Soldier captured the wounded General, hoping to use the enemy as his exit ? By handing the General to the Liang warlord, the Soldier could be honorably discharged and returned home to his peaceful life. The young General, though taken captive, was always condescending towards the Soldier. The two men were often at loggerheads during the long and winding journey.Along the way, they encountered a mesmerizing but scheming songstress, who drugged the duo and stole the General?s jade medallion, the only evidence of General?s identity. In the course of pursuit, they became entangled with a cohort of refugees who robbed all their food and water. To make their life even more complicated, they were stalked by a ferocious bear. The odd couple was forced to collaborate in order to survive one crisis after another.Unbeknownst to them, Prince Wen, the General?s brother, was hot on their trails with his elite troops. What appeared to be a rescue mission turned unexpectedly into an assassination, with the prince desperate to secure his rung to the throne. At the end of the incredible journey, the hatred between Soldier and General was gradually replaced by camaraderie. A moral dilemma dawned on the Soldier ? Which was more important in life, the General?s friendship or the ticket to home?
