From prolific action director Benny Chan (New Police Story, City Under Seige) comes a powerful and moving martial arts epic starring Hong Kong cinema legends Andy Lau (House of Flying Daggers, Infernal Affairs) and Jackie Chan (Drunken Master, Rush Hour).It is the early years of the republic and China has been plunged into chaos as feuding warlords battle to expand their power and their lands. Young army leader Hou Jie (Lau) and his sworn brother Cao Man (Nicholas Tse: New Police Story) find little resistance in conquering the township of Dengfeng. With the warlords leaving devastation in their wake, the venerated Shaolin Temple throws open its doors to help the injured.But when Hou's brother violently betrays him, Hou is forced to repent and seek refuge at Shaolin. While recuperating at the temple, he finds inner peace and has the chance to learn Shaolin's powerful martial arts from the monk Wu Dao (Chan). The first feature film in nearly thirty years to be officially sanctioned by the Abbot of the Shaolin temple, Shaolin deftly combines incredible martial arts choreography, dazzling cinematography with a story steeped in legend and spirituality.
