What time is it?

The farewell party doesn't matter?

Here I am

I can only stay for 30 minutes

I'm taking the 10:30 plane.

What's the hurry for your first job?

Aren't we all waiting for this?

From now on

Jimmy will be a Silicon Valley bigshot

I majored in IT, too

I'm going out West, like you are.

You two are together now?


"Kill the Tiger in the Mountain."

What the...

Very funny guys, way to go.

What's that?

Peking Opera.

That's your hometown, Jimmy.

"X on Fire."

Man, what time is your flight?

I don't think you can make it.

It's a massive traffic jam.

Well, Merry Christmas.

"Kill the Tiger in the Mountain."

"Northeast China 1946"

One year after the Japanese surrendered

China fell into a full-scale civil war.

In the Northeast,

bandits went on a post-war rampage.

They killed, looted... and expanded quickly.

The common folk suffered, oppressed and afraid.

That winter,

a PLA troop captain, code-named 203

led a squad to subdue the bandits

at Peony River

awaiting orders from headquarters.

The end of the year-

winds roaring, paths blocked.

After all kinds of hardships

the squad returned to their homeland

the snowfield forest.



So watery?

That's all we have.


En route to camp

the villagers killed by the bandits

numbered to...

Say it.

At Nan Hill:

Gupai Village:

- Yangjia Creek:

- Tell me the total number.

Give a report with the details.

Total number:


we passed Guying Village without entering.

Not sure about their situation.

Reporting to 203.

Enemies at the machine storehouse.

Let's go

100 meters to the west.

A dozen men outside the storehouse

wearing our military uniforms.

But they don't look like our men.

Not sure about conditions inside.


the smell of barbecued meat.

A big load

enough for more than a dozen people.

Report on the bullets.

Qu has 52.

Tank and Brick have 120.

Baojun and Iron Pillar each have 6.

It's from Tank.

They've discovered us.

Those men out there

don't fool around.

Don't you bump into somebody

without knowing it's your bro.

We're from the Tiger Mountain.

Pick a name.

From which gang?

How many of you?

So you're Lord Hawk's gang.

He's a bandit under Hawk.

This land belongs to Hawk now.

Damn it.

Scared me.

Stop pretending.

No bullshit, you're alone?

What's your name?


What do you do?

I've found lots of goodies.

Sirs, come take a look.

Which gang are you from?

I don't belong to any

I'm just a hunter.

A hunter.

And what have you hunted?

Right... what have you got?

A lot of goodies

I can't carry them all alone.

That many?

Sirs, if you like, be my guest.

He's not alone.

The grenades collided!


They have tanks.

Stop throwing grenades, let's split.


Shit, two fled.

Son of a gun.

They're in our uniforms

easily mistaken as our men by the villagers.

The enemy poses as us

and smears our name.

Before arriving at Peony River

we've entered Hawk's territory.

There's thousands of men.

- Way outnumbered.

- Reporting to 203.

We've seized loads of bandit ammunition.

- Is everyone okay?

- Okay.

Is this edible?

Some kind of delicacy?

Barbecued rat.


Not bad

50 boxes in total

14,000 bullets, 500 grenades.

Really? Excellent


How much food is left?


Tonight there's nothing to cook.

Attention, please-

We will soon arrive at Harbin West Station.

If you are to disembark here

please get ready.

The next station is Harbin West Station.

If you are to disembark here

please get ready.

- Hello.
