The new film was set in the 1920s, during which time the warlords in China were fighting with each other. Besides showcasing the Shaolin kung-fu style, the film will show many modern war scenes as well. Director Benny Chan explained that "The usage of modern weapons is in a conflict with traditional kung fu. It's a terrible thing to many kung-fu masters."
Many long-anticipated scenes were included, such as the married life of Ge You and Shu Qi since they decide to start a trial marriage, and a "divorce ceremony" for Yao Chen and Sun Honglei.
