DVD Review - Shaolin (2011)

12 September 2011 6:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaolin (Xin shao lin si), 2011.

Directed by Benny Chan.

Starring Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Jackie Chan, Fan Bingbing, Xin Xin Xiong, Yu Xing, Jacky Wu, Hai Yu and Xiaohong Shi.

Synopsis:

A brutal warlord is double crossed by his deputy and seeks refuge among the peace-loving monks at the fabled Shaolin Temple. When his enemies discover his location, the former warlord must stand with his new brothers to protect the Temple and complete his redemption…

Glancing briefly at the cover for Benny Chan’s Shaolin - a loose remake of Jet Li’s 1982 feature film debut, Shaolin Temple – I rather hastily made two presumptions, both of which proved to be inaccurate. The first was that Shaolin was the latest in a seemingly never-ending line of ‘historical martial arts epics’ set the in period of the Three Kingdoms and secondly, that the ‘special appearance’ by martial arts superstar Jackie Chan would »

Exclusive: Shaolin Clip!

30 August 2011 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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) 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), 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.

We have an exclusive clip from Shaolin. Check it out below. »

Eight Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes for Benny Chan’s Shaolin

13 January 2011 10:28 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

This is easily the best news I’ve heard all week. Since Benny Chan’s martial arts epic “Shaolin” is rapidly approaching its release date in China — no word as to when, precisely, the film will assault the rest of the globe — the folks over at Golden Village have posted eight snazzy behind-the-scenes featurettes for you to enjoy. Each video runs at approximately two minutes, and none of them have English subtitles, but it’s still pretty cool to see what goes down on the other side of the camera. Anyone who has been following this flick as closely as I have should, in theory, be pumped about checking them out. If not, that’s okay, too. Sometimes the martial arts geek living under my skin gets a little too excited about these things. “Shaolin”, which stars Andy Lau, Nicolas Tse, Fan Bing Bing, Wu Jing, Xiong Xin Xin, Xing Yu and Jackie Chan, »
