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 Chieh and his sworn brother Tsao Man find little resistance in their conquer of the township of Dengfeng, leaving thousands injured and dead in their wake. The venerated Shaolin Temple throws open its doors to the wounded. Disciples Chingneng, Chingkung and Chinghai venture out in the day to save the villagers and at night, become masked Robin Hoods to help the poor and weak. When Hou Chieh learns that temple disciples are helping his enemies, he challenges the temple's kung fu. Stars Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Fan Bingbing, Jackie Chan, Jacky Wu, Yu Xing, Xin Xiong

As feuding warlords fight to expand their power, the noble monks of the Shaolin temple clean up the mess left behind, tending to the injured while trying their best to protect the poor and weak. The young general Hao Jie (Andy Lau, WARLORDS, INFERNAL AFFAIRS) has caused much of this mess, with his violent and ruthless tactics that rarely discriminate between soldiers and civilians.
When Hao is betrayed by fellow general Cao Man (Nicolas Tse, THE PROMISE, SHAOLIN SOCCER), he is forced into hiding, and takes refuge with the monks (including Jackie Chan) at their hidden mountain temple. As the days pass, he finds himself more and more at ease, as he learns the ways of peace. But Cao is not far behind, and war soon reaches the temple, where the monks are ready to fight back with a fierce style that none of the warlords have ever seen- their unstoppable Shaolin Kung Fu.
