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 Bing Bing) and daughter. Devastated by the betrayal and consumed with revenge, Hou Jie befriended an uneducated Shaolin cook (Jackie Chan) who nonetheless has a profound understanding of Buddhist philosophy. Eventually, Hou Jie finds enlightenment in Shaolin and becomes a monk. As a reformed Hou Jie vows his life to defending the Temple and protecting the people in distress, he leads the
heroic monks against the oppression of Cao Man and his henchman Suo Xiang
Tu (Xiong Xin Xin).
