Shaolin (2011) starts In 1920s war-torn China, ruthless warlord Hou Jie (Andy Lau) is double-crossed by his trusted lieutenant Cao Man (Nicholas Tse) during a pivotal battle that culminates in him losing everything he has, including his wife (Fan Bingbing) and daughter. Devastated by the betrayal and consumed with revenge, Hou Jie is befriended by Wudao (Jackie Chan), an uneducated Shaolin cook who nonetheless has a profound understanding of Buddhist philosophy.
Eventually, Hou Jie finds enlightenment in Shaolin and becomes a monk himself after making up with young monks Jingneng (Wu Jing), Jinghai (Yu Shaoqun), and Jingkong (Shi Yanneng). Leading the heroic monks against the oppression of the treacherous Cao Man and his henchman Suo Xiangtu (Xiong Xin Xin), a reformed Hou Jie vows his life to defending the Temple and protecting the people in distress.
