"Temple of the Goddess"
The King rules heaven
The Devil rules hell
Between the two there is White Lotus
Keeping our country safe
White Lotus is divine! Power to the people!
White Lotus is divine! Power to the people!
Welcome Priest Gao Kung
from the South Heaven Gate.
Green Dragon on the left.
White Tiger on the right.
On September the first, 1895, I became
a disciple of the White Lotus Goddess.
I speak these words before the heavens
to show my powers
and spread my word to the people.
Mystical powers protect me!
Impervious to water and fire!
Goddess, lend me your powers!
Welcome spiritual master, Gao Kung.
Goddess, make me as strong as iron -
fearless before blade or sword.
Stabbing and slicing have no effect.
I'm fearless before cannons or gunshot!
49 levels of transformation!
Holy Army under my command!
My bones are like pillars
supporting the sky!
The fierce flames are like dust to me!
Unlimited mystical powers at my disposal!
The White Lotus Sect... eradicates evil!
A thousand knives are deflected!
A million blades are deflected!
A thousand knives are deflected!
A million blades are deflected!
Regiment commanders!
Mystical power protect me!
Cannon fire is as flying sand to me!
Bullets are mere raindrops!
White Lotus is divine! Power to the people!
Bring out the objects of evil.
What's this animal? It's so ugly!
It's a Western dog, Master!
It has spots, so it is evil. Kill it!
White Lotus is divine! Power to the people!
Kill all foreigners
so we can live in peace!
"Protect Your Family and Country"
Steady, Master.
He doesn't spill a drop to either side.
Wow, good footwork!
Aunt Yee, the train is rocking so much,
how will we eat?
You're not used to it.
Look, the foreigners are coping fine.
Come and sit here.
Now it's much better,
this journey used to take all day.
The trees look like they're flying.
But... whoa...
- I don't feel well.
- Foon, what's wrong?
- You've so much to say.
- Nothing...
My stomach is churning.
It's called motion sickness.
Don't eat or you'll throw up.
But I must! There's Western food to eat.
Right, Master?
Excuse me, waiter, we haven't ordered yet.
You don't need to order your food
on the train.
- Miss, your soup.
- Thank you.
It's all been prepared.
You mean it's not fresh?
- Solar eclipse!
- Don't be dense, it's nothing.
Aunt Yee, what's going on?
We're in a tunnel.
A tunnel? The train is strong enough
to go through a mountain?
That's amazing!
Foon, we're all together now,
but don't run off when we get to town.
I heard that there will be many foreigners
at the medical conference.
- Don't make a fool of yourself.
- I understand, Master.
So many hands?
Fei Hung, eat the soup while it's hot.
Foon, eat the soup while it's hot.
Master, I don't know which hand is mine.
Drink like that, then.
Have you finished your soup, sir?
Leave it. I'll finish it later.
Only meat? Where's the rice?
Miss, have you finished your soup?
I don't want it.
Thank you.
Fei Hung, this is steak.
You have to use your knife and fork.
I've seen these.
You're always doing this.
What a waste! Don't throw it away.
Waste not, want not.
Here, learn from me.
- Aunt Yee, are you hurt?
- I'll clean your face.
No. Here's your steak back.
Master, you needn't eat it,
but don't throw it at someone.
It's all your fault.
Forget it, let's eat.
Why are you so quiet?
No reason.
Why are you so quiet?
I'm going to... I need to...
I'm sorry.
Foon, I told you not to eat.
Hold on, we'll be in Canton soon.
We're almost there?
Riding on a train is quite a challenge.
Waiter, can you pack this?
- What did you say?
- I just don't want to waste it.
Chicken buns!
Give me a pot of tea.
Old man, Pay up what you owed me!
If I can't play, I can't pay.
Look, a crowd. What's on the banners?
Support the scholar's proposal!
We object to the cession of Taiwan!
Hey, where is Taiwan?
We lost the war and gave it to Japan.
Taiwan must be near the sea, right?
- Otherwise, why call it a bay?
- Right.
I don't even know how big it is.
We can't even manage Canton,
forget it. Let's drink.
Yes, let's drink.
Eat, we'll talk later.
We object to Li Hongzhang's
concession to Japan!
We object to the cession of Taiwan!
Look at the clothes on that woman!
The one in the rickshaw.
Come and have a look.
She's wearing Western clothes.
How can you wear those in the street?
Let's do the lottery.
Nine is my lucky number.
No, thanks.
Money first, look after your tickets.
Get your ticket and move on.
The lottery!
Roast pork buns!
We're here, sir.
- Ten cents, please.
- Thank you.
Let's eat. Pulling this rickshaw
will be the death of me.
That's a pretty dress.
Can I take a picture?
You're not a foreigner. Get her!
- Aunt Yee, come here.
- Hey, you little brats!
You dare throw things at people?
Where are your manners?
Hey, Foon!
Get lost...
Don't hit the children.
- I'm bleeding!
- Sister...
Look, you're in trouble again.
Let's go, we'll tell Uncle Gao.
Those kids are so naughty, throwing
things at people. Look at the mess.
Attention, please.
White Lotus Sect are meeting
at Telegraph Office. We should all go.
Don't leave! Pay up first!
Master Wong, I'm going to have a look.
Aunt Yee.
Aunt Yee.
Hurry! They're about to start!
Come on, hurry up!
In the name of the people's army
stand down!
Damned soldiers, working for foreigners!
Stone them!
Get out of the way. Move!
Wind and fire come together to kill
the foreigners in one fell swoop!
White Lotus has come to save you
by driving evil away!
Burn down Telegraph Office!
Excuse me, please.
Aunt Yee, let's take the photo here.
Help me set up the tripod.
Over there.
Wind and fire come together...
It's starting now.
I can't see. I can't take pictures.
- Get on my shoulders.
- Your shoulders?
Now, I'm coming. Keep still.
White Lotus is divine! Power to the people!
Protect your home
for the sake of the country!
Kill all foreigners
so we can live in peace!
Foon, this position is no good.
So good.
White Lotus has come to save you
by driving evil away!
Thank you.
She can make lightning. Run!
Arrest that evil spirit!
Divine Chief,
is it the one on top or bottom?
- The foreign devil on top.
- Catch her!
Calm down!
She's Chinese, not a foreigner!
See for yourself.
Look at the way you dress.
It proves you're evil.
Arrest her!
Stay calm! Don't!
Run, Aunt Yee. I'll protect you!
My camera!
Aunt Yee!
Aunt Yee!
Aunt Yee, where are you?
Foon, help me...
Foon, help!
Kill all foreigners
so we can live in peace.
Take her to the temple, burn her to death!
Put her down!
Fei Hung!
Who the hell are you to stop me?
Identify yourself.
Wong Fei Hung from Foshan.
Wong Fei Hung?
And Leung Foon too!
He's Wong Fei Hung.
I hear his kung fu is deadly.
I'll kick you to death!
Aunt Yee, that one's gone.
Find someone else.
Who else? Where?
Don't overdo it.
That's enough.
Ten Forms Fist!
Thank you, thank you.
Are you all right, Aunt Yee?
I'm fine. You came just in time.
What's this? Smells sweet.
It's sleeping powder.
- Foon!
- Master!
- Take care of Aunt Yee.
- Right.
Aunt Yee...
Mystical power...
All this trickery and mumbo jumbo and
you claim to be acting in God's name!
Aunt Yee, wake up! Aunt Yee!
Aunt Yee!
Help her up.
Foon, take Aunt Yee back to the inn.
- Foon, move!
- Right...
He's one of Canton's Ten Tigers.
His kung fu is legendary.
Step aside!
Master Wong, don't! That thing is evil!
Step aside!
Master Wong, I want to learn your kung fu.
Go away! Don't follow me!
Fei Hung.
You're awake.
You passed out just after
they used sleeping powder on you.
Did you carry me back?
No, Foon carried you back.
Why did he carry me back?
Foon is preparing your medicine.
Take it, rest for two days
and you'll be fine.
- Master Wong.
- Come in.
Don't go out alone,
this town is in turmoil.
Rest a while, don't worry.
Fei Hung, I'm all right.
I can still be your interpreter
at the convention tomorrow.
Let's talk about that later.
Take your medicine now.
- Master Wong, sorry to disturb you.
- Not at all.
Aunt Yee, you're awake. Did you know-
You carried me back, right?
Yes, I did.
The medicine is very hot, be careful.
Mr. Mak, what can I do for you?
I sent my servant to buy these clothes.
Please ask her to wear them.
- That's very kind of you.
- Don't mention it.
Mystical kung fu is very popular now.
And foreigners make them mad.
Master Wong, I've known you for
a long time, I'll be frank with you.
If Miss wears her own clothes,
she'll definitely get into trouble.
I understand. How much for this dress?
- There'll be no charge.
- Thank you.
Thanks for your help, Master Wong.
Here, you can see
the five main regions of the brain.
According to the results of
our medical studies and research,
we understand that the functions and
the nervous system of the human body
are controlled by the brain.
If I'd known it'd be so boring,
I'd have asked So to come.
This is a theory
I of course cannot subscribed to.
And this, I afraid, concludes my lecture.
Thank you gentlemen for your attention.
- Good presentation.
- Thank you.
And now I would like to introduce you all
to Dr. Wong Fei Hung
from the Foshan region near Canton.
There's another one.
It's not any of them. Another foreigner.
Dr. Wong, it's your turn.
Foon, it's our turn.
- I'll let you out.
- We'll go together.
It's not a good idea, Master.
Thank you. Thank you.
My topic of discussion for today
is Chinese acupuncture. Acupuncture-
I beg your pardon, Dr. Wong.
I don't quite understand.
There are 365 pressure points
on the head alone...
Dr. Wong, what do the line represent?
Isn't it loud enough?
That's not what he meant.
Mr. Wong, may I translate for you?
allow me to translate for Dr. Wong.
How may I address you?
My name is Sun Wen.
Mr. Sun, if it's no trouble,
please translate for me.
- Don't mention it.
- Thank you.
The human body's five elements, gold,
wood, water, fire, earth, form a network.
Acupuncture regulates the nervous system.
The human body consists of
five major organs:
heart, liver, spleen, lungs and kidneys.
These organs are all connected by nerves.
And acupuncture can regulate
the human nervous system.
Dr. Wong, I'm not quite sure
what your chart exactly means,
but in Western medical studies
we call this the nervous system.
Allow me to give you a demonstration
of what I mean.
Reflex action.
Mr. Wong, Dr. Thompson doesn't quite
understand your technique.
What he just demonstrated was the Western
understanding of the nervous system.
That's quite simple.
I can use needles to close two nerves
so that he can't move his leg.
Master, are you going to stick those in me?
Mr. Sun, ask them to test his reflexes now.
Please try again.
Simply amazing.
Join White Lotus and save your country!
Foreigners out, leave us in peace!
"Support the Qing, annihilate the West!"
Master! I can't move!
I'll be shot! I'm a goner!
Master, I've only been stabbed by you,
not them.
- Mr. Sun, your medicine bag.
- Leave it.
We're finished here. Back to the Temple!
- Are you all right?
- I'm fine.
Mr. Sun, here's your bag.
Mr. Wong, if we get the opportunity,
let's exchange ideas, shall we?
China needs more men like you.
You flatter me.
See you again.
The White Lotus Sect
is always making trouble.
Oh, Master! Aunt Yee is alone at the inn.
What? Why didn't you tell me earlier?
The White Lotus Sect?
Come out!
Fei Hung!
Master, what's the matter?
Nothing, come on, out.
Master, you look pale,
something must have happened.
It's just a woman changing.
Mind your own business!
Master, you've already seen it.
Of course you'd say that!
- What a terrible noise!
- Tell him to stop.
Thank you...
Thank you...
Telegraph Office is our only contact
with the outside world. Protect it.
Yes, sir.
There are a lot of bystanders,
take care not to hit them.
Drive the White Lotus Sect
to Dongmen Alley.
Yes, sir.
Sir, if this continues,
I'm afraid we will be outnumbered.
Burn it... Burn it...
Time to eat!
I got a nice treat
to help Aunt Yee get well.
Is it game?
Yeah, smells real nice.
What's that?
Foon, haven't you told Aunt Yee
what this is?
Don't you know?
Aunt Yee, do you like dogs?
Dogs are very intelligent.
I like dogs more than cats.
What's wrong?
Nothing. Let's eat.
Everyone likes dogs in different ways.
- They went that way!
- Let's go see.
Canton is in chaos.
Foon, pack our things after dinner.
We'll go to the station early tomorrow.
- Take Aunt Yee back to Foshan.
- Will do.
You'd better eat well tonight, then.
You don't want to be sick on the train.
Aunt Yee, come outside when you've finished
the dog meat, I'd like a word with you.
You'd like a word with me?
What did you say? This is dog meat?
It's really dog meat?
Yes, Master loves dogs.
Aunt Yee,
I want to teach you a few hand grabs.
Me? Why?
The current situation's chaotic.
You could use it for self-defence.
Now, basic hand grabs have 36 stances,
advanced hand grabs have 72 stances.
There are 108 pressure points...
Fei Hung...
Do I need to remember all this?
No, just listen and try to get the basics.
Remember, for punches,
attack from the side.
For kicks, come from below.
What if someone has a knife?
I'll teach you that another time.
Now, watch.
This is the single, this is the double.
What a bother. Why don't I use a gun?
Shut up!
I was a bit rude,
but that's how I speak to my students.
I'm fine, let's continue.
All right.
The first move.
Go for my head.
Pay attention.
Grab the hand, crouch down and twist.
Grab the hand, crouch down...
- And twist.
- ...and twist.
Let's try again.
Grab the hand, crouch down and twist.
The second move, throat lock.
Come on, attack my throat, harder.
Grab the hand, crouch down, elbow up.
Aunt Yee?
Be careful!
Why aren't you concentrating?
Oh, I was practising in my head.
Try it again.
The first move, grab the head.
What's next?
Then punch!
Are you all right?
Yeah, but I think it's safer
to just stay by your side.
Sir, we received a telegram from Hong Kong.
We've no time for that now.
It says someone's planning
a rebellion here.
Here's the message.
Sir, another telegram from Hong Kong.
The situation is serious.
Guard Telegraph Office well.
- I'll inform the Governor.
- Yes, sir.
Governor, this way please.
Please go in, sir.
Your Excellency.
The British consul invited me here,
can't this wait?
My Lord, our spies in Hong Kong sent us
two urgent telegrams today.
The Chiu Chow Society are planning
to smuggle weapons to Canton.
They want to start a revolution.
A revolution?
Is it the White Lotus Sect?
It's a man named Sun Wen.
Sun Wen?
Officer Ga! Who is this Sun Wen?
My Lord, Sun Wen is the one
who started the Agricultural Society.
He's a doctor, and is always giving
speeches and criticizing the Government.
He encourages democracy too.
He says China should be a republic-
How does a doctor
have the ability to rebel?
- My Lord...
- Don't we have enough men?
My Lord, the White Lotus Sect
has been causing trouble recently,
so we are under-manned.
My Lord, the Government is having trouble
with the French in the north.
I think there'll be war soon.
It won't be easy to secure reinforcements.
The British are our allies, they'll help
keep the other foreigners at bay.
Have the army and navy step up their guard.
Strictly monitor transportation,
investigate Sun Wen.
What was that society?
The Agricultural Society.
Who else is involved with Sun Wen?
The money man is someone called Lu Haodong.
My Lord, should we bring him in
for questioning?
Bring him in.
Yes, My Lord.
- Sir?
- I'm not going.
Chow, tell Snake to get up,
it's not his day off!
Hey, get up! Did you spend all night
at the brothel? Get up!
Be careful, Aunt Yee. Take it easy.
Foon, what are you doing?
Aunt Yee twisted her ankle.
That's impossible.
I only showed you hand movements.
What happened?
I don't know,
it was just hurting when I got up.
Foon insisted on carrying me
when he found out.
- Foon?
- I don't mind, Master.
All right. You take the luggage,
I'll carry Aunt Yee.
It really hurts.
I always do the carrying.
Now you want to get involved.
Excuse me!
May I help you?
We'd like to check out.
- Leave me alone!
- Get up.
- You're too much!
- Mr. Mak.
- Master Wong, good morning!
- We're leaving.
Oh, thank God!
No, I mean have a safe journey.
Sorry for the trouble.
If you're ever in Foshan-
Fei Hung, look! What's going on?
Hey, what's going on?
The White Lotus Sect have burned down
Friendship Hall, and are beating up people.
White Lotus Sect?
What's Friendship Hall?
It's where they teach foreign languages.
Oh, no! It's full of students.
Mr. Mak, where's the school?
Turn left up at the fruit market.
- Aren't you leaving?
- Aunt Yee!
Hey, Master, where's Aunt Yee going?
Foon, you lied to me. She's fine.
Master, she was the one who lied to you.
Wait for me.
"Friendship Hall"
Is this it?
Master! Wait for me!
- What is it?
- Human skin.
It is human skin.
The children.
Luckily, they were hiding.
What's up?
Let's go and have a look.
What's going on in there?
They've gone now. Don't worry. Be good.
Are you hungry? Eat something.
Mr. Mak is here!
Master Wong! Why are you still here?
Whoa, you've brought back so many kids?
They're students. We just needed a rest.
They can't stay here!
If the White Lotus Sect comes,
my entire family is finished!
I don't know them, even worse,
they study foreign languages.
Why don't you take them
to the courthouse, eh?
It's just a little inconvenience.
Master Wong, I can't fight like you.
Let me go.
My whole family depends on this place.
If the White Lotus Sect burns it, I'll...
I'll help you fight.
Mr. Mak!
Bring the medicated oil.
You've made him faint.
Who do you think you are, Wong Fei Hung?
If something happens to him,
I'll call the police.
Let's not force anyone.
Foon, Aunt Yee, let's go.
Let's send them home.
Hey, kid, where do you live?
I come from Guangxi.
I'm from Guangxi, too.
My home's in Fujian.
This one lives in Chaozhou,
those two are from Guangxi.
I guess the rest are not from here either.
Do any of you live here?
Auntie, I live by the north gate,
so does he.
I live in Shamian.
I think I live near the east gate.
I live in Suzhou.
Anybody else?
I came here on the train,
I don't know where I come from.
We'll take these two home.
The rest come with us.
Come on, kid, I'll carry you.
- Foon.
- What?
Order some glutinous rice chicken
for our journey.
Waiter, 20 portions of
glutinous rice chicken.
Come on, you, too.
A guest.
what can I do for you?
I'd like to know if the children from
Friendship Hall came here earlier?
Students? No, no, you've come to
the wrong place.
Have any of you seen the students?
There are no students here, you fool!
Maybe the boogie man's got them.
The King rules heaven
The Devil rules hell
Luckily, the students are gone.
Between the two there is White Lotus
Keeping our country safe
- Talismans for your protection!
- I want one.
The hanging lantern will keep you safe.
Sticking talismans
will protect your family!
- Light the lanterns.
- Here's the offering.
This will keep you safe.
Of course, of course.
More donations keep me safe.
Finish up in there. We have to leave.
Don't make a noise.
What happened to your hands?
It's not mine, it's his.
It's all over his body.
He's badly hurt. We can't stay here.
I'll go to the courthouse to see
if they'll take them.
Don't wander about.
- Foon!
- What?
- Help me bandage the wounded child.
- All right.
I'm not done yet.
Don't be so naughty. Come back now.
I want to see where he's going.
Foon, you stink.
- You peed on me!
- I told you I wasn't done yet.
"Only the Truly Brave Reach the Top"
Sir, Wong Fei Hung is here to see you.
Master Wong, please wait a moment.
Master Wong truly deserves
to be the militia's chief instructor.
Pardon me...
It was nothing, sir.
I just wanted to spar with you a little.
Your Shaolin staff cetainly
deserves its reputation.
Maybe you can teach me
some other time.
Please, have some wine.
Thank you.
Hey, his Shaolin staff isn't that good.
He hit that pole and it didn't even move.
It's said he has tremendous kung fu. Seems
like that's nothing more than a rumor.
All our troops are busy
protecting foreigners.
It may not be that safe here either.
If the students come here, the White
Lotus Sect will come to cause trouble.
I know it's my job to protect the people.
The trouble is even though I can fight,
I don't have the men to support me.
I'm deeply ashamed.
Foon, come here.
Out of the way.
Go away! Don't get in the way.
He's still bleeding.
Master hasn't come back yet,
what do we do?
- He's not moving.
- Why isn't he moving?
- Mozart.
- What? How does that stop bleeding?
No, I'm talking about the music.
There must be a foreign consulate nearby.
A consulate?
Beware of fire.
Beware of thieves.
Aunt Yee!
- I need to pee.
- Wait until you're home.
It's bad for my kidneys.
So? They're rotten anyway.
Hold it!
Don't run!
Where has the sect taken
the woman and children?
We aren't with White Lotus.
My children are in bed now.
My woman has ran off...
Foon, where did you go?
Aunt Yee took the children to a safe place.
You're not from the White Lotus Sect.
Why are you holding their lantern?
We got it for luck.
But it doesn't seem to have worked.
- Can we go now?
- Go!
Hey, hurry up, let's go!
Foon, let's go.
Did you forget me so soon?
I was just here with a bunch of kids
and a very beautiful woman.
But I went out to look for my master.
Don't you remember?
- Go away!
- I don't understand you.
Well, Foon?
Did Aunt Yee bring the children here?
Yes, he let us in before, but now he won't.
- Aunt Yee!
- Aunt Yee!
I've brought Master here!
- Shut up!
- Aunt Yee!
- Shut up!
- Aunt Yee!
- Did he ask us to stand up straight?
- That's what I heard.
Aunt Yee!
We are waiting at the entrance!
Open the gate.
Aunt Yee!
Master, they're opening the gate.
Go away now!
Hey, how dare you!
Foon! Don't be reckless!
Hands up! Turn around!
- Still want to hit me? Get lost!
- Don't hit him!
- Tell them why we're here.
- I have!
- Hey, put the guns down first.
- You know what I'm talking about, huh?
- Stop it!
- Stop pointing...
Stand back now!
Gentlemen, wait a moment.
Allow me to clear the confusion.
All right.
I'm Lu Haodong. And you are...
Wong Fei Hung from Foshan.
Wong Fei Hung? You saved the children.
Yes, they're all inside,
but they won't let us in.
- Allow me.
- Stand back!
Hey, Sergeant...
Why do foreigners believe in a god
who has suffered so much?
Everyone has a god in their heart.
When we're young, we believe in one god.
When we're older, we believe in another.
Until one day
we realize all beliefs are just lies.
Why are you always looking at your watch?
Are you expecting someone?
It's a bad habit I picked up from a friend.
He says time is valuable.
We Chinese waste too much time.
I still can't read foreign numbers.
I'll never keep good time.
Kids, don't come down.
There's nothing to be afraid.
Foon, take them upstairs.
What's going on?
They're foreign merchants
and their families.
They were attacked by the White Lotus Sect,
and are here for refuge.
- Have you found a doctor yet?
- He's on the way.
Well, go and get him now.
He's bleeding badly. What should we
do about him? What do we do?
Stop the bleeding.
The doctor's on the way.
They need a doctor.
Why don't they ask for Master?
- I don't know what to do.
- Do the best you can. Now, go. Go.
Excuse me, Consul...
They're looking for a doctor.
Yes, but we prefer Western medicine.
They don't want Chinese doctors.
Hey, Mr. Sun!
Mr. Wong.
This is...
No need for introductions.
He's the friend I mentioned.
Burn it down!
The White Lotus Sect's
up to no good again.
Which one is telling the right time?
Your watch is fast, Yat Sen.
Mine can't keep up with yours.
Enough of this, let's check the injured.
Foon, I never thought
time was so important.
Of course, you wouldn't understand.
Burn the foreign devils! Chase them out!
Aunt Yee!
Oh, no... they must have taken her soul.
If they're that powerful,
they would have won by now.
They're just using tricks to scare us.
Don't worry about it. Have a rest.
I'm afraid she will vomit.
We're not on the train now.
- Look, just contact their families.
- Yes, sir.
I'm afraid I don't have enough anesthetic.
Dr. Sun, what do you suggest?
Haodong, go get Wong Fei Hung.
- Feeling better now?
- Yes.
Mr. Wong, Yat Sen would like you
to help him.
- Where is he?
- He's in the reception hall.
Fine, lead the way.
Master Wong,
I have never seen anything like this.
His skill is amazing. What more can I say?
I'm filled with the utmost admiration
and respect.
He said thank you. He's never seen
anything like this, and is amazed.
Saving lives is important,
please don't thank me.
Dr. Wong said nothing is more important
than saving lives.
Keep calm! Keep calm!
Leave now. Avoid the windows.
- Call for reinforcements.
- Yes, sir.
Come on, this way. Move it.
- What's the matter?
- Aunt Yee, stay with me!
- Don't go.
- I'm not leaving you.
The children!
Don't panic!
Take the women away.
Stay behind the barricades.
Be careful, Yat Sen. Get down!
Urgent telegram:
The consulate is under attack.
Deploy troops. Prepare for evacuation.
The army have closed Telegraph Office.
We've lost contact with Hong Kong.
Are we still going ahead with our plans?
It's too risky.
We'd better lay low for now.
Let's split up and tell the others.
The telex at the consulate is the only way
we can contact them.
Haodong, you know how to use a telex.
Stay here and keep contact
with the outside world.
Yat Sen, I...
I've arranged for your family
to go into hiding.
I'll go back to the villa now,
and then go on to the wedding.
If you don't hear from me by morning,
go to Shamian pier,
take the first boat to Hong Kong.
Don't be late. Take my watch with you.
If I fail, carry on the fight.
I will.
- Mr. Sun, are you leaving?
- I've got something to do.
- It's dangerous, I'll see you out.
- Thank you.
Don't follow me.
Fei Hung, be careful.
The White Lotus Sect will drive
the foreigners out!
Mr. Sun, how will you get out?
Saving people is easier
than saving the nation.
It seems my medical bag and I
can't save them all.
Get them out of here!
Mr. Wong, farewell.
Sir, we just want to expel the foreigners.
We wouldn't kill our own people.
I'm glad to hear it.
Leave the negotiating to us.
If you were so capable,
we wouldn't have lost so much land.
It's all your fault!
If you continue to make trouble,
I'll arrest you all.
Take the altar away.
Yes, sir!
Open the gate. I want to see your consul.
- They're all coming in.
- Why are they all going in?
You men up there, move away.
You are not permitted to enter.
Leave at once.
We suspect that
you are harboring a criminal.
His name is Sun Yat Sen.
I have an order to arrest him.
This is British territory.
You are now in China.
And don't you talk to me like that.
I'm sorry, but according to international
law we are not under your jurisdiction.
And you have no right to search
the British consulate.
We do not intend to offend anybody.
Please leave.
Oh, so Lu Haodong is hiding in here.
Get off the premises.
Now, Commander.
- Let's go!
- Yes, sir.
- Sam Fook.
- Sir.
Cut the wire pole down.
I want to stop all communications.
An army without information
is a dead army.
As soldiers, we are men of the world.
We must do what is best.
But, sir...
I know. Just follow my orders.
Yes, sir.
Right this way, Commander.
Carry out the General's instructions.
Go on!
They're harboring the rebels,
and are trying to divide us.
Raise the altar!
Do it.
What are they firing at?
I don't see anything.
What's out there?
Don't get distracted. Stay alert.
If you are all up for this,
let's practise some kung fu.
Once you have your stance, don't move.
This is the Hanging Horse.
One move and you're steady as a rock.
This stance brings unlimited power.
Perform the Unicorn Move.
Third move...
Grab the hand, crouch down and twist.
Watch carefully!
Return to your original position.
And again!
Not bad. Hold that stance for two hours.
Hold the head, grab the hand, then twist...
what do you do with it?
Grabbing Hand?
Yes, I've learned a little bit,
but I don't know how to use it.
That's easy. I'll attack and you counter.
- Watch.
- Yeah.
Is it this way? It doesn't feel right.
Foon, what are you doing?
Why are you holding Aunt Yee?
I'm just teaching Grabbing Hand.
Oh, so you've even started teaching now?
Don't you think I can teach her?
You embrace your elder Aunt Yee?
Go downstairs!
Horse stance for half an hour.
Master, I-
What are you looking at?
Carry on!
I'm going... right away.
What are you doing?
Horse Stance.
Is that how you do a Horse Stance?
Fei Hung, don't be angry with Foon.
I asked him to teach me.
- You asked him to teach you?
- Yeah.
Why don't you call him back up?
Go on...
I'm punished for this? What would happen
if I taught her the Bear Hug?
These foreigners are really lazy.
If the White Lotus Sect came,
you'd be dead.
Spooking me?
- A foreign devil.
- Wait for her to come down.
Mr. Lu.
Mr. Lu!
Have you seen Leung Foon?
- White Lotus Sect!
- Help!
The White Lotus Sect is here!
They're really here!
Wind and fire come together.
Kill all foreigners.
White Lotus, saviour of the world.
Eradicate all evil!
You go hide and don't run around.
I'll be back soon.
Come back quickly.
Come on, come on.
Who's there?
- Mr. Lu?
- Yes.
Dr. Wong.
- Go upstairs.
- It's safer up there.
- Go.
- Let's go.
- Sir...
- We wait.
Now you'll die, you little brats!
The stance!
Still want to run?
Foon, tie them up.
I'll see if there are any left.
- Go in and arrest them.
- Yes, sir.
- Arrest the White Lotus Sect.
- You can't come in here.
I have the order to protect the consulate.
You must cooperate.
Let my men through to search
for the rest of the rebels.
Go on!
I saw what you did. I saw you let
the rebels go. That's a conspiracy-
What are you looking at? Come on.
They are fighting.
This is China, not Britain!
Fei Hung,
General Yuen Suet killed the consul.
Stay where you are.
Don't move!
- Search everywhere!
- Yes, sir.
Hey, come back here! Where are you going?
Hey, you can't walk
in the consulate like that.
Come back here!
Nothing over here.
- Tell Sun Wen to run.
- I will.
Fei Hung,
I know you look on me as your aunt,
but you're the one for me in my heart.
If we're separated, you must bring me back.
It's time to go.
Whatever happens, you must survive tonight.
This is so future generations
can see a new dawn.
Do you understand?
Foon, you pose as Mr. Lu
and distract the soldiers.
If you can, help him find the name list
in the market.
I will.
Leung Foon, take this watch.
Go to Shamian pier
at seven o'clock tomorrow.
I'm counting on you for the name list.
Siu Kwan!
You called me... This is the first time
you said my name.
Who are you?
I'm the interpreter
from the consulate, sir.
Foon, go now.
Mr. Lu!
- Lu Haodong? After him!
- After him!
- General Yuen Suet.
- Wong Fei Hung.
Sir, I want to destroy their leader.
That way I destroy the whole sect.
Good. And who's that?
- Foon.
- Master.
- Greet the General.
- Sir.
He was wounded by the White Lotus Sect.
Sir, we can't predict what might happen.
Could you please take care of the children?
You have my word.
Thank you.
Escort Master Wong to the temple.
Yes, sir.
White Lotus, I want to join you.
The White Lotus Sect welcomes you,
our guests.
Master Wong, there are so many soldiers
guarding the door, how do we escape?
The temple is so big, we can just
disappear. I'm sure we can get out.
Under the incense,
long live the White Lotus Sect.
Is it safe in there?
Don't worry, just relax.
- Anyway, we can't turn back.
- Let's go in, then.
The Goddess comes to save all people.
White Lotus will free the poor.
Our sect brings peace to the world.
Prepare for our initiates.
Wong Fei Hung, Leung Foon,
bow before the altar.
Three showers before the altar,
cleanse the hearts of evil spirits.
Let the ceremony begin.
Swallow the tailsman,
become a child of the sect.
We are all brothers.
We share a common bond - for better
or for worse, for richer or for poorer -
all are equal.
Drink this and you'll be a member forever.
May lightning strike down
all those who betray us.
Be loyal before God. Drink it!
God in heaven, devils below.
Protected by God, nothing can harm me.
A thousand knives are deflected.
A million blades are deflected.
The body is now as strong as iron.
Nothing can penetrate!
Master Wong!
Here's your demon water!
Seek the power within!
Wong Fei Hung,
how dare you make trouble here!
Priest Gao Kung's name is famous.
But I need to see him
before joining the sect.
I demand to see him now!
We won't let you see his righteousness!
You won't?
I'll fight my way in, then!
"White Lotus"
How dare you!
Leave here.
Surround him!
You'll have to look out for yourself.
Sky, wind, earth, fire,
eight stances to challenge you!
Surround him!
Let's see how your powers protect you.
Turns out it's all a deception.
God will protect us.
Yet more nonsense?
Gao Kung, why don't you come out?
Nothing but fancy tricks.
I've shown your true colours.
Protect the altar!
- White Lotus brothers, fight to the death!
- Fight to the death!
Fight me if you dare!
We broke the umbrella!
Stop, or I'll shoot!
Can't you see this idol cannot protect you?
Stop believing in it.
You spread lies to deceive!
- You...
- Haodong!
Come this way
and we'll see who doesn't die.
Step aside!
God will protect me.
Your gun doesn't scare me!
God will protect you!
The body is as strong as iron!
Little girl, you will die. Get back!
White Lotus is divine!
Power to the people!
Let's go!
I hit the girl.
Don't worry about that now. You first.
Keep away.
Look at them. They're giving up their lives
for this idol.
Haodong, let's go!
If they're all like that,
how will they ever change?
They know nothing else.
Surround them!
There's nowhere to run to.
We can't escape.
Don't let them get away!
Beloved God, take over my body.
God will protect my body giving me
power to exorcise the evil spirits.
With God in my body,
I'll teach you the true way.
How dare you wake me to come here!
Ignorant fools!
Anger the gods and bring them to earth.
I'll teach you!
Come out, or I'll burn my own altar.
Gao Kung, the righteous, is here.
Welcome High Priest Gao Kung.
The invincible Gao Kung!
The universe is controlled by him!
All things obey his command.
The Goddess personally taught me.
She instructed me to set up an altar
to exorcise the evil spirits
and save us from this impure world.
Come, spirit!
- Come, spirit!
- Here I come!
Come down and face me!
Be gone!
Trap him! Come on!
Yes, sir!
Why do you need help?
I'm more than enough for you!
Get down!
Yes, sir!
You set up a useless altar. Come up here!
Supreme Being, come into my body!
I'll leave this broken altar for you.
Steady, steady!
How dare you!
How dare you wreck my altar!
Protect Priest Kung.
Use the cloth as an altar!
Do you want to die?
Supreme Being, four Guardians
of Heaven, come to my aid.
Destroy my enemy.
Guardian of Anger! Guardian of Mercy!
Guardian of Defiance! Come!
Gao Kung, you've summoned
all the guardians! Are you ready yet?
A good guardian's all you need.
You offend the heavens.
They will all punish you!
Death to you, the guardian's enemy!
Die now!
Wind somersault!
Mighty strike!
Evil being!
Priest Kung is invincible.
He will exorcise all evil!
Get down!
Foshan's Shadowless Kick!
Protect Gao Kung!
Killer cloth!
I am not any sort of god.
I'm Wong Fei Hung!
Can't you tell gods from what is not?
Wong Fei Hung, prepare to die!
White Lotus blossoms!
Feet on the ground.
It's all a deception.
Wong Fei Hung,
how dare you challenge the gods!
Gods don't burn!
If that's true, there's no justice.
Solar explosion!
Your show is over now.
You say believe in God
and peace will reign.
How many people have you killed?
Let's see you survive this!
- No one can stop me!
- I can!
Grabbing Hand?
A metal plate.
This is his magical powers.
Now they've no god,
they must look after themselves.
- God!
- Master!
How can this happen?
Let's go.
How do I read this...
I don't even know what to look at.
It's useless giving this to me.
Good, we're all together again.
It's six o'clock, there's still time.
Hey, where's the name list?
Name list?
Oh, no! I was distracted by the soldiers
and forgot it!
Why are you so careless?
I'll go back and get it.
Do we have enough time?
It's a matter of life and death.
I must get it.
Let's go.
Haodong, it's well-guarded,
do we have to go in?
I must get the list, no matter what.
The ship will leave in thirty minutes. We
must meet with Yat Sen at Shamian Pier.
Wait here.
Foon, see if Mr. Lu is ready yet.
I'll keep a lookout.
- Mr. Lu, anything I can do to help?
- Got it, let's go!
There are soldiers. Let's hide first.
Search the place.
- Master Wong, this way.
- Master.
Hurry up!
- I'm a dead man this time!
- Help him up.
Leung Foon, where are you hurt?
It hurts, it really hurts.
Luckily they shot your watch-
- Haodong!
- You bastards!
- Foon, lead the way.
- Right.
Haodong, hold on.
Master, this way.
Don't move!
Master, there's a way out.
Let's go.
Are you all right?
I can't go on. Leave me here...
Let me help you.
This name list is important.
It mustn't fall into the hands
of the Government.
Or many of our compatriots will be killed.
Take me over there.
You can't burn this cloth.
Master Wong, I beg you,
deliver this to Yat Sen personally.
Tell him I died for the revolution.
He must live for the revolution.
- There's blood here.
- They're over there!
Foon, look after Mr. Lu.
Nap Lan Yuen Suet?
We meet again.
- Arrest the rebels.
- Yes, sir!
Don't move.
What are you burning?
Wong Fei Hung, this will be
our last chance to spar.
I wonder how many of my moves
you can take.
- Bring it here.
- Quickly!
Here you go!
How dare you!
The name list?
Foon, stay where you are.
Carry on with what you're doing.
Master, you be careful.
Mr. Lu!
Nap Lan Yuen Suet,
didn't you want to test me?
Wong Fei Hung!
Come on, then!
Come down!
Get the hell down!
You wanted to fight?
Son-of-a-bitch! This is too much!
You want to fight? Then come down!
Mr. Lu!
Time... is vital...
Be on time... at the pier...
to meet Yat Sen.
Mr. Lu!
Wong Fei Hung, there's no way out.
Come back.
You murdered the British consul.
Everyone will know sooner or later.
There's no way out for you either.
Well, we're both doomed, then.
Foon, don't burn that cloth!
Go, Foon. There's no time to waste.
Oh, no! Dead end.
Master, there's no way out.
Foon, what time is it now?
I haven't learnt to read time,
but we're getting light.
Yat Sen, there's not much time left.
He must meet Haodong before he sails.
Wong Fei Hung.
Please give me the list
so I can go back to the Governor.
He won't let us go. Find a way out.
Go quickly!
Cloth staff?
Foon, make a way out through this hole.
Well done.
Thank you!
- Foon, get out of here.
- Yes, Master.
Master, we can go now.
Yes, you can go to hell!
Shadowless kick.
All aboard! Hurry up, everyone!
All aboard!
- Aren't you Sun Wen?
- Get on board.
Quick, we've found him.
Don't move! You're coming with me.
Out of the way!
Grab the hand, crouch down and twist!
Fei Hung!
Aunt Yee!
Where's Haodong?
Yat Sen!
May a new dawn break over our land.
May a new dawn break over our land.
Haodong, your spirit will always
be remembered in our hearts.
Don't worry, I'll meet you at the pier!
Foon, are you missing Aunt Yee?
Are you, Master?
I asked you the question.
I think you're the one who's missing her.
