"Shaolin" tells the story of the famous monastery in China that is plunged into strife as feuding warlords try to expand their power by warring over neighboring lands. Fuelled by his success on the battlefield, young and arrogant warlord Hao Jie (Andy Lau) sneers at the Shaolin masters when he beats one of them in a duel. However, when he lost everything after a betrayal of his former second-in-command Cao Man (Nicholas Tse), Hao is forced to swallow his pride and take refuge with the monks. As the civil unrest spreads and more innocent people suffer, Hao and the Shaolin masters are forced to take a fiery stand against the evil warlords. Together they launch a daring plan of rescue and escape in order for justice to prevail and freedom to be achieved.
