The powerful Chinese ruler, Qin, is beset by powerful enemies during the Six Kingdoms period. When he learns that someone has defeated three of his foes he summons the nameless man to the Imperial palace to hear how such a victory was achieved.
This 2002 Chinese martial hero film was directed by Zhang Yimou and stars Jet Li, Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung. The film is based on the story of Jing Ke’s assassination attempt on the King of Qin in 227 BC
