So this is the overwhelming Qin Army?

Who is talking?

General Liang from Chu

It's Zhang Han here

I'm going to chop your head off

If you have the courage

Ridiculous

Kill him

You are no more than this

Let's go

Kill them!

Xiang Yu and Liu Bang's united army

have conquered Yong Qiu

We have seized Ding Tao county

Zhang's army is forced outside

They're retreating to the west

We're ready for an overall attack

So they won't have time to breathe

But our soldiers are exhausted

from chasing the Qin army

The difficulty is the rain

They need rest to recharge

before attacking Zhang's army

I agree with General Gong

to stop fighting for now

and wait till the weather turns

It will be good for us

That's a bad strategy

Good weather can favor us

as well as the enemy

They're nothing but old soldiers

Let's keep attacking them

and keep them confused

Bad weather

keeps them off guard

Most of our soldiers

are too overconfident

This will lead to our failure

You are worrying too much

He doesn't dare

attack again

He's figuring a way to escape

That's enough of a worry for him

The rain and the muddy road

help to keep them away from us

We wait until the weather clears

to destroy them completely

You are so confident

Be rest assured

I'll show you

his head tomorrow

He'll be completely discredited

and will suffer

once he meets me

I wish you success

and victory

Ok

Ok

send out my order

Battalions set out immediately

He is still inside

You go back to rest now

Let me look after him

You must be tired after today

Have an early night

and rest

I'd like to attend to you

I don't feel tired

Go to sleep now

so you can start

off early

But I can't fall asleep

My uncle

Xiang

Don't worry.

I will

You go to sleep now

I'll stay with you

I feel anxious and nervous

Do you know

My parents died

when I was young

My uncle brought me up

He's the dearest

to me

Uncle is kind and respectful

God will bless him

in safety

The reinforcement army is here

The army has arrived

Kill them

Just in time

Have them all killed

The situation's deteriorated

What a beautiful night

It's good you are here

I was going to see you

You're rarely in a carefree mood

We are here to plead for you

to send a rescue army

The moon looks a bit strange

It's unfavorable to us

We are in the turmoil of war

There aren't enough men

to guard the city

What assistance can we lend?

Didn't he promise us

to bring Zhang's head back?

Assistance will

mess up his plan

The urgency is to guard the city

His Highness sent us here

to help the general

Now that he is in trouble

What's the use of guarding?

His Highness real intention

is to get a hold of the town

If we give up what we already have

His highness won't be happy

We'll suffer the consequences

Don't mention His Highness

Let me ask you again

Will you help the general?

Please excuse me

I can't defy His Highness

That's fine.

I'll go myself

Come on

Kill them

General

I was wrong

Don't say anything

You are wounded

Self conceit leads to failure

Somebody

Somebody

I:

Sir

Withdraw the army

Withdraw

Yes, sir

Emergent message from the King

Liang is heavily wounded

and has retreated to Peng

The King orders all generals

to meet at Peng county

Pass on the order

to call back the army to Peng

But

we'll conquer Chen Liu soon

My uncle is badly wounded

Get the army back to Peng

Hurry

Yes, sir

Welcome General Xiang

Is Liang back yet?

He is already back

How is his wound?

I have no idea

Let's go

His Majesty gives the order

Generals from all routes

meet at the court immediately

I must see my uncle first

Ask him to wait

General

Get away

Yes, sir

Please settle down now

I'll meet the King

Quick!

My nephew

My nephew

My nephew

Uncle

You've come back

Yes

I'm here to meet Your Majesty

Please get up

My gratitude

Where's your sworn brother?

Xiang...

Why don't I see him here?

He must miss his uncle so much

He's gone to see his uncle

I knew

you have something urgent

So I hurried here

My beloved

We are at a crucial juncture

General Xiang ignores the order

If you don't punish him

he'll be like his uncle

and be dangerous to the state

How could Liang be dangerous?

It's true he fought his way

and won every victory

But he's so conceited

and underestimates the enemy

I tried to persuade him

Generals were getting careless

and soldiers were inattentive

while the Qin Army

had been reinforced

But he

simply ignored this

and got attacked from Qin

If he had followed your advice

he wouldn't have been wounded

The wound is something personal

This failure and the retreat

has endangered the state

Thanks to your judgment

to move the capital to Peng

and to stabilize everything

It's a blessing for the state

Now Xiang disobeys

orders again

If he's not punished

our state will be in danger

It's true Liang and his nephew

have made the mistake

But they contributed

in establishing the state

Most armies are their followers

The punishment

will fluctuate the army

Let's settle things first

and make plans later

What a military counselor

Your arrogant wisdom

got my uncle badly wounded

Don't be impertinent

Yes, Uncle

I have one favor to ask

I'm from a mountain village

and you appreciate me so much

Whatever you command

I'll give up my old life

to achieve it

I wish for you to assist him

To press Chu against Qin

Please be assured of this

I've made up

my mind

to sacrifice my life

to repay your kindness

I accept him

as my own nephew

Kneel down to your god-father

Uncle, I

It's my last request

and you want to disappoint me

Listen to me just this once

Ok, Uncle.

I will

My respect

Please stand up

I'll fight to my last breath

to live up to your expectation

Don't forget

You're the descendent

from a family of honor

Uncle, Uncle

General

Uncle

Uncle

General

Uncle

Uncle,

I swear to Heaven

I'll kill Zhang Han

and take his head here

as a sacrifice to your soul

An ambitious man should

bear the unbearable

You'll stand out one day

Even if the heaven falls

you should be able to stand

I owe so much favor to Liang

I'll go all out to assist you

to achieve his wishes

I'll take out Zhang Han

to peel him, to decompose him

to revenge you

You are so up straight

Liang would show his gratitude

in heaven

I'm doing my duty

Xiang's so disrespectful

He's been here many days

and doesn't show up

He holds the funeral privately

with total disregard

He simply ignores Your Majesty

It's such an atrocity

He's gone too far

Xiang's family has strong

family ties with the army

If Xiang takes the military power

he'll endanger your position

I'd like to ask for leave

Yi

My nephew

Please dissuade him

I have no way out

This is to relieve the wine

I'll come see you the morning

Please wait a minute

Yi

Please don't blame him

He's very depressed

I apologize on his behalf

I understand

Please dissuade him anyway

This is a critical time

The responsibility
