Yen also sang the theme song. This is the filmography of Hong Kong actor, film director, producer and action choreographer. The three escape into the city.
Through various flashbacks, it is revealed that all four were blood brothers who fought side by side, before He Ying was betrayed and charged with treason. Ending on a cliffhanger for years after spending more time setting up for the next film was a cardinal sin. He is a person that wants to make the world a better place.
