Music Video For Benny Chan’s SHAOLIN1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Of course, no promotion with Hong Kong actor/singer Andy Lau headlining a film is truly complete without him singing the theme song for its music video and Benny Chan’s Shaolin continues to follow this tradition.
As usual, there are plenty of footage in the music video.
It is the early years of the republic and China has been plunged into chaos as feuding warlords battle to expand their power and their lands. Young army leader Hao Jie and his sworn brother Huo Lung find little resistance in their conquer of the township of Dengfeng, leaving thousands injured and dead in their wake. The venerated Shaolin Temple throws open its doors to the wounded.
When Hao Jie learns that temple disciples are helping his enemies, he challenges the temple’s kung fu. The abbot purposely loses the fight to Hao Jie and the latter becomes even more arrogant. But Hao is forced to repent when the shock betrayal of Huo Lung wipes out his whole family and he is forced to seek refuge at Shaolin.
