think this through carefully.

To drop the spear,

is to challenge us.

Let's duel up close.

Stay away! Stay away!

He didn't lose his mind.

It's pure anger.

He hates himself.

He needs to be born again.

Let him become

a monk in name only.

Listen closely.

Write his name on a paper doll.

It will take over

his identity as a monk.

Then he will

vanish from the world.

When you jump over the wall,

the words spoken by the first person

you meet will be your new name.

Brother, you will start

a new life with that name.

Come back when you have one!

Judge Archer!

You! Who are you?

- Judge Archer.

- You?


Come here.

Let me take a look at you.

Judge Archer is my name as well.

From now on, you and I

will share the same name.

You have taken a cursed name.

It has been used

for six generations.

Nobody with this name

has met a good end.

People who carry this name

have a duty to deliver justice.

Han Si, what are you doing?

No more waiting.

Why not? Doesn't Judge Archer

mean anything to you?

He disappeared three years ago.

You said he'll come today.

How can I trust you?

Master Zhao, you have

your broadsword with you.

Don't let a stranger step in.

We'll solve it ourselves.

It's Judge Archer's signature.

I don't know you.

This is all you need to know.

It's my fault.

I'm sorry I bothered you.

Good. And now

settle it over a cup of tea.

- Let's forget what happened.

- It's over.

Do not hold back now.

With a single gold bar,

you can buy a whole house.

I was afraid they wouldn't sell.

Why'd he shoot

four arrows in a row?

It's a tradition,

symbolizing justice.

It's not easy to cluster

four arrows together.

He can persuade others

with his precision alone.

Just by pulling a bowstring,

he can stop fights

between the schools?

But you must remember

that what they teach

is all trickery.

That's how they

keep their students.

After you've mastered archery,

there is no secret

in martial arts.

These two ligaments here are

essential in the art of archery.

Always keep your chest out

and your waist in.

And you can feel them

stretch when you pull the bow.

He shows his strength

by pulling on the bow.

You and I are working

together and it ends there.


He drank seven bottles

in four hours.

Judge Archer

is respected by everyone.

If he wants to get drunk, why

does he have to disguise himself?

Oh, you have many enemies.

For to deliver justice

is to make enemies.

You cannot handle wine.

You just want... to get drunk.

The last Judge, your

predecessor, lasted seven years.

How long can you last?

Let's see if I survive tonight.

I challenge you... up close.

Get out of the way.

I'm crazy when I'm drunk.

Stay away!

What are you doing?

It's my habit.

I know this is a trap.

What do you want?

I shouldn't have lied...

I'm sorry.

I wanted to ask

if you could help me.

I am Judge Archer. I am concerned

with martial arts... nothing more.

I thought that if there was an

injustice, you would step forward.

To be Judge Archer

is my destiny.

It's the only purpose

of my life.

I cannot afford

to make mistakes.

I see that I was wrong.

Leave... when you're finished.

I want to ask one thing.

Nothing happened...

last night, right?


No one can bully me.

We won't make a trade.

But I can... help.

My father was a member of the

Tongmenghui Revolutionary Alliance.

Most of its early members

were forced into exile overseas,

and many had

foreign lovers abroad.

He died in a conflict

two years ago.

The man who killed my father

is no longer in power.

These days, he only leaves
