(at around 1h 1 min) Instead of binding the captured boys at the wrists before setting them on a forced march, the warriors build a bulky, complex bamboo cage (wherein the boys can sit comfortably). With the boys inside, they proceed to carry them back to their leader through a bamboo forest. In terms of energy, this has the effect of delaying their return and keeping the boys fresh for action (especially if they were to escape) while tiring out their captors. (Though the warriors' instructions were to retrieve the boys' dead bodies, not bring them back alive and in good condition, this order was based on the assumption they were already dead.)
