The story is about a lost Roman army that flees to the East and faces the Chinese army.
Did you know? In an interview, John Cucask said, a�?a�?I think the film is an epic, sweeping slice of Chinese history, andA� the Silk Road. But ita��s also about the need to build peace. Sometimes empires may be at war with each other, but thata��s never the desire of the people. In their hearts, people want peace and justice. So I think thata��s what the movie is about.a��a��

A sniper kills Congoa��s minister of mines. Circumstances then force him to return to the area, where he becomes the target of a hit squad.
Did you know? a�?We are not seeing enough of real violence. We are seeing anaesthetised versions, where you dona��t see the horrors of war. In the 60s, we grew up with the horror of Vietnam on our TV screens. Today we have become anaesthetised by political correctness,a��a�� Penn said recently.
