    Kung fu purists may scoff, but escapists with a sense of humor should romp through The Forbidden Kingdom.

    I was surprised by this movie since I didn`t hear much about it. I guess I shouldn`t be cause Jet Li, and Jackie Chan are a great duo.The sounds the action all make for a great adventure.The Heroes and the Villans give you a feeling of a different world, and that`s what I look for in a movie.

    Clever, dashing, and fairly amusing, "The Forbidden Kingdom" is a special kind of action adventure film that actually stimulates the audiences' minds as well as their eyes. Full Review »

    Jet Li and Jackie Chan's combination of powerful performances combined with decent storytelling make this a decent action movie.
