As they desperately try to survive, they encounter the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), who is one step ahead of the mighty creatures thanks to his unique abilities. As Artemis and Hunter grow closer, she discovers he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman).
With their world in danger of being destroyed by great danger, the courageous warriors join forces and unite for the ultimate showdown.
