When Beijing journalist Ga Yu arrives at the mystical camp of the Kekexili Mountain Patrol, he witnesses a Tibetan funeral and a village in mourning. Ga Yu is determined to uncover the real story behind the mysterious disappearance of patrol volunteers, the killing of rare Tibetan antelopes and the rumor that the Mountain Patrol collaborates with the poachers. Ga Yu joins a patrol headed out into 40,000 square kilometers of wilderness. The illegal hunters are like phantoms in the uninhabited land, hiding in caves, tracking the patrol members like sinister shadows, waiting for the right moment to launch their deadly attack - the patrolmen have become the hunted. Despite the severe environment, the patrol led by Ri Tai risk their lives in the fight against the callous poachers. At first an observer, distanced by the lens of his camera, Ga Yu slowly becomes personally involved in the struggle. He gradually becomes aware that this is not just a regular patrol but a journey about life. To the patrol members, Kekexili is their homeland as well as it is the habitat of the antelopes. In the transmigration of life, they will always be on guard for the homeland. Through the eyes of Ri Tai and the other patrolmen, Ga Yu witnesses the real beauty of their lives: their faith.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
For a relatively short film with a running time of under one and a half hours, this one punches well above its weight. In fact there are times when it comes very close to achieving epic proportions. This feeling is enhanced by the magnitude of the vast canvas that most of the film is played out on. The desolate tundra like plains of Tibet are truly one of the world's last great wilderness areas, and any film could not fail to be embellished by this bleak yet beautiful landscape. The title refers to a large area of northern Tibet where the story is set.

The film is based on true events that took place in Kekexili between 1993 and 1996. A Tibetan patrol of volunteers was set up to combat the lucrative poaching of Tibetan antelope, which was reaching epidemic proportions, and which was pushing the species to the brink of extinction. But these poachers were not content with one for the pot. They came equipped with modern machine guns, and were prepared to kill in order to avoid capture. The odds were stacked against the patrol, who were made up of men from all walks of life, and were led by their charismatic leader RiTai, played by Duo Bujie. The action is seen through the eyes of a half Tibetan Beijing reporter Ga Yu, played by Zhang Lei. Yu joins the patrol as they take off in pursuit of a large gang of poachers who have decimated a large herd of antelope. The pursuit is long and arduous and takes place over a seventeen day period. Some men are seriously wounded. One dies a lonely death in quicksand, and one is murdered in brutal cold blood. The men are not even paid to take such risks, but they do so without question. But above all else we see the camaraderie that runs deep in their little group.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Dec. 2006
Format: DVD
Mountain Patrol: Kekexili is a truly powerful film that draws the most poignant of contrasts between the beauty of nature and the brutality of men. The film plays on many levels, as this story of a group of brave volunteers fighting to drive out the poachers from their land ultimately turns into nothing less than a spiritual journey for one character and most definitely for the viewer, as well. This is much more than just a good story, however, as it was inspired by actual events. With poachers decimating the herds of Tibetan antelope in Kekexili, a volunteer patrol was formed in the 1990s by locals to patrol the area and stop the poaching, even at the risk of their own lives. We're talking about a huge area of mostly barren land in the unforgiving mountains (over three miles above sea level) of Tibet, one of the coldest places on earth. Some of these men gave their lives to the struggle, but they did ultimately succeed in bringing international attention to the problem and the establishment of Kekexili as a natural animal reserve by China, and the number of Tibetan antelopes has now begun to rebound strongly.

We initially see events play out through the eyes of a reporter from Beijing, sent to write a story on the Border Guard's struggles against the poachers. Ga Yu arrives during the funeral for a guard who had been murdered. Westerners may be perplexed by what they see here, as the funerary tradition of this land is, to put it far too simply, to feed the dead body to vultures. Soon thereafter, Ga Yu joins Ri Tai and his men on patrol into the mountains. As he gradually bonds with these men, who have left family and friends behind to take part in this dangerous journey, the story evolves into Ri Tai's story.
