In this vast desert,

many dynasties were established

Leaving behind countless legends.

Over thousands of years,

these dynasties rose and fell.

All that remains is this desert.

Beneath it lies a vast treasure

hidden deep below the burning sand.

No one can open the door to the treasure:

It is protected by a group of secret guards.

They have guarded this desert for generations.

The legend says only the leader of the guards

can be called the 'Eagle of the Desert'.

Every one of the guards

is master of an oriental martial art.

Every two decades, a new leader is selected.

A new 'Eagle of the Desert'.

When a new leader is chosen,

his opponent will be cast out.

In the desert, power is everything.

Only the victor survives.

No one remembers the loser.

Countless explorers have come to this desert,

hoping to find its great treasure.

Few of them returned alive.

What keeps the legend going

is the 'Eagle of the Desert'

But i...

So that's it. I'll wait for you.

Excuse me, please write, 'To Pork Rib'.

P-O-R-K R-I-B. I was born in the year of pig.

Thank you so much!

Sir, what would you like to drink?

We came here for business, not drinking.

We heard that they never question the

provenance of the goods.

Therefore our master

decided to send us here with these antiques.

We've travelled across all of Siberia.

We hope you can offer us a good price.

As long as they're genuine, i promise it'll be

worth your while.

Are you implying they're fakes?

We'll see whether they're genuine or not

when they're examined by our expert.

Just wait here.

He'll be here in a minute.

So you're the expert?

A Macedonian bronze... US $500,000.

A mediaeval gold scripture! Cool!

A Chinese bronze bell? Let me try.

This is not for you.

This is our master's alarm clock.

It's only peaceful because he's asleep.

If you strike the bell and wake him up,

we'll be in trouble.

I see.

You stole it, right

No, my mom gave it to me.

'My mom gave it to me'? No matter, I'll confiscate


What? Confiscate it?


Mind you, I'm not stealing them from you.

I simply return them to where they belong.


Don't strike it!


Don't strike it!

Don't! Please don't.



Crazy people!

Come on!

I never get scared. I'll just kick your ass.

Tell me if it hurts, OK?

It must be quite valuable.

Not a single tomb art craft.

Let me tell you, this is called a 'pauper's burial'.

Master Hua, i heard a batch of antiques just


Well... most of them are fake.

According to historians,

The most daring tomb raider in history...

Wow! You bought a lot!

Come on, he's giving things away again.

Master Hua, have you made up your mind?

Made up my mind? About what?

The Lost City!

I've found out who has the map.

Our dream is coming true!

Pork Rib, how many times have i told you?

The chance of coming out alive from that place is

very slim!

Besides, i don't believe there is a genuine map.

Yes, there is. This one is genuine!

Master Hua, you don't want to waste your life

away like this, right?

If we can find that map, everything will be settled!

Do you remember last time? Lf...

You're helping yourself not me!

Pork Rib, are you afraid of dying?

No, I'm not.

Let me make it clear to you.

You're not afraid of dying, but that doesn't mean

you won't die.

Master Hua, you've finally agreed!
