My Penny of View : Hou Jie was a warlord that wanted to expand his authority to neighboring lands. In one of the battle, he pursued his enemy until Shaolin temple. Yet, he didn't let his enemy alive even the enemy has surrendered. The Shaolin masters and others witnessed the whole incident. His pride didn't last long, he was betrayed by his 2nd-in-command, Cao Man. His daughter killed and his wife blamed him that caused the tragedy. Later, the wife left him. Hou Jie sought refuge at Shaolin temple. He met Shaolin cook who helped him pass through the pain of losing his daughter and see through life. After became enlightened, he tonsured to be a monk. Cao Man got everything his want but he still don't let Hou Jie alive. He rewarded who ever that able to catch Hou Jie alive. What will happen to Hou Jie? Will Cao Man let him go?

This movie is an updated version of Jet Li's movie, The Shaolin Temple. Story line is exciting, out of expectation and also touching. When a person thought he is having the whole world, he only think what he did was correct. When he lost the most important thing in his life, then only he realize what he did was wrong. Everything happens for a reason. Every action has a reaction (因果). We should know what is the limit and never ruthless to others. Since Andy Lau's marriage revealed, his popularity kind affected but you cannot deny his acting is really good. One scene he is a cruel warlord and another scene he is an enlightened monk. Don't know why, I feel that his wrinkles seems lesser when the camera nearer to his face. I'm looking forward to his upcoming movie-What Women Want (我知女人心) with Gong Li. Nicholas Tse is another actor that has great improvement. He was the bad guy and his acting was good. I still can remember his outstanding acting in Bodyguards and Assassins (十月圍城). Last but not least, Jackie Chan is another reason you should catch this movie. Although his movement not as agile as previously, but he is funny and important character of the movie. Besides Shaolin Kung Fu, the movie emphasis on Buddhism theory. You will feel touching and understand more on the talkings if you are a Buddhist. Just the killing parts that make me feel uncomfortable, it's cruel and bloody.

Rating :

The song is very meaningful, I like the lyrics too.


放下 颠倒梦想 放下云烟
放下 空欲色 放下悬念
多一物 却添了 太多危险
少一物 贪嗔痴 会少一点

勿生恨 点化虚空的眼
勿生怨 欢喜 不遥远
缠绕 欲望的思念
心怀忏悔 陪你走好每一天

无量心 生福报 无极限
无极限 生息息 爱相连
悟性 悟觉 悟空 心甘情愿

简简单单 陪你走好每一天
