Imperial soldier Lai Xi has to accomplish one last mission before going back to his homeland Japan. He has to hunt down and kill renegade soldier Li Zai. He finds Li Zai escorting a camel caravan, protecting a Buddhist monk, a soldier and a mystic treasure, through the desert. The caravan is being attacked by Turkish thieves, and Lai Xi has to protect it in order to complete his mission. With the help of an old man, a beautiful girl and a handful of friends, the battle between the caravan and the thieves soon becomes a battle of good and evil, of heaven and earth. WARRIORS OF HEAVEN AND EARTH is an entertaining adventure film which combines traditional Chinese drama with the likes of Sergio Leone-westerns.
