There were many heroes at the end of the Sui Dynasty. Meng Haigong led a rebel army to chase He Tianlong, the defender of Yandang Mountain, and defeated the enemy in the mountains and water. The story is not recorded in history and is purely fictional. The martial arts performance by heavily or lightly dressed actors convinces the audience how fierce the battles are. In the scenes of mountain chase, night attack, water battle, siege, etc., fancy tricks of knives, guns, and cane shields, as well as unarmed combat, showcase the excellent skills of the artists.
