An awesome fight scene from the film:

Tsao, the emperor’s first eunuch, has successfully bested General Yu, his political opponent, but Yu’s children have been exiled out of China. Tsao plots to have the children killed at the desolate Dragon Gate Inn while they are being escorted to the western border, but forces loyal to Yu race against time to find Yu’s children and lead them to safety.
