MOVIE REVIEW:The Forbidden Kingdom


Despite having a pale white American boy from modern-day Boston as the
lead in a medieval Chinese tale, FK is a terrific action comedy that
also stars Jackie Chan and Jet Li in crucial roles. Also, this may have
been filmed in China, but it has Hollywood — not the Shaw Brothers -
written all over it. A young kung fu fan comes across a mystical staff
that needs to be returned to its rightful owner, the Monkey King. In
doing so, the boy will help free a long-ago kingdom that is in the
thrall of a nasty wizard/warlord and his minions, including a venemous
witch. After traveling back in time, the kid meets up with a drunken
wanderer (Chan) and a Shaolin priest (Li). Together, they journey to
the besieged kingdom to save the imprisoned Monkey King. There's also a
girl along for the ride who is a pretty fair fighter herself. All of
these characters are right out of various martial arts movies of the
1960s and 1970s. The elaborate fights are eye-popping and virtually
nonstop. Costuming and sets are magnificent. The movie is laden with
comic bits, thanks to Chan. The actor playing the lead is wooden at
best, but he's just a cypher anyway. Lots of of soft-core violence,
with little or no blood to be seen, so it's suitable for children
although perhaps not the very youngest. The ending is somewhat choppy,
as if the filmmakers wanted to get it over with in a hurry. Warmly


This was a weird phucking trip. I used to be good for martial arts
movies, but I thought I had them done with Bruce Lee. Then this came

Damndest thing I ever saw. Jackie Chan and Jet Li. How weird is that?
50 million dollars. That's what this movie cost. Strange as it may be,
this works for me. It's a stupid enough story, but I couldn't get away
from it. The blond chick…………..Excellent. A blond Asian.

And I have to love the fighting sequences. Those were top notch.

I have no idea who or what came up with the idea for this movie, but I
say "well done"


Destiny is never a yellow brick road paved with risk and adventure or a
never-ending story to whisk you off your feet and deep into the
unimaginable, but it is the hands that will push you over the edge and
through the gate of no gate and into a land beyond time, a world that
dreams across the silver screen. But how do you get home? What journey
must you take to get back to what you left behind, and who could you
trust? An army of a formidable foe is ready to tear you down, and the
wolves are begging for blood. But the misfits hold strong, travelers
lingering across the woven strings of their own destiny, but what fate
waits for them over the bitter sands of desert and mysterious, majestic
mountains? How far must one go to fulfill the footsteps destined for
the return of a hero, and what sacrifice must be made to defeat the one
bent on having your head? And who are you to become? Destiny is the
crouching tiger, circling the sands of time. It is the green-eyed
monster, the dragon of legendary tales. It is the heart of heroes, the
essence of warriors, and the grains of sand of their greatest
