This trailer's been out a couple of weeks now, but I just saw it today, so give me a little slack. It looks like something right up my alley, with Andy Lau and Jackie Chan fighting to protect their Shaolin Temple from an evil general, and it looks like it delivers a ton of martial arts action. Here's the synopsis:
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. General Hou (Andy Lau, WARLORDS, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) 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 (Nicholas 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, and begins to release his hatred through Martial Zen. But Cao is not far behind, and war soon reaches the temple, where the monks are ready to fight back- with their unstoppable Shaolin Kung Fu.
Sounds intense. Here's the trailer:
I'm not sure when this opens in my area (the trailer says September 9th, but I don't think that's everywhere), but I'm always up for Jackie Chan in his native language.
