I liked it. It really is a fan's movie. In the first five minutes you see pictures of Lau Kar Leung, Lo Lieh, Jimmy Wang Yu, Cheng Pei Pei (not sure if the poster was from COME DRINK WITH ME or GOLDEN SWALLOW), Gordon Liu and others flash past during the beginning credits. Movies mentioned (that I can remember), ENTER THE DRAGON, CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON, BRIDE WITH WHITE HAIR (twice).

Jackie Chan and Jet Li finally make a Hollywood movie without embarrassing themselves or the audience. The story isn't original but the acting is pretty good and the production quality is excellent. If you like martial arts movies, this will be satisfying enough.

Quite Funny

Ok, so I'm not an expert when it comes to martial arts movies, but this one I liked. I happen to be a fan of Jackie Chan so it was really fun seeing him in another movie, besides the Rush Hours.

The setting was beautiful and I thought the aspiring boy actor, Michael Angarano, did a good job as the clueless hero. I also liked Jet Li's characters, although I am not all that familiar ... read more

Description: A 21st Century American teenager takes a spellbinding, dangerous journey into martial arts legend in the new action/adventure epic The Forbidden Kingdom. Shot on location in China, the film marks the historic first-ever onscreen pairing of martial arts superstars Jackie Chan (Rush Hour, Drunken Master) and Jet Li (Fearless, Once Upon A Time In China), and features the awe-inspiring action choreography of Wo Ping (The Matrix, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon). While hunting down bootleg kung-fu DVDs in a Chinatown pawnshop, Jason (played by Michael Angarano - “24”, “Will and Grace,” LORDS OF DOGTOWN, SEABISCUIT) makes an ext ... (more)

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (126 tv items)

"I was told this movie had epic fights with Jackie Chan and Jet Li in a "Journey to the West" type of story so I expected it to be a lot of fun. The movie has what it promises but it's not that fun, mainly because of the main protagonist and the fact that a good chunk of it was a generic and boring training. And what was all that for? Yes the rookie did become stronger but he didn't do much in the end. And the fights weren't THAT good either. Meh, not a bad movie but I wasn't engaged with it."

"20.2. (Yle Areena) Muistan kuinka vajaa kymmenen vuotta sitten näin tämän elokuvan mainoksen bussin kyljessä, ja totesin kaverilleni, että onpa mukavaa, kun Jackie Chan tekee vaihteeksi jotain muuta kuin Hollywood-leffoja. Tämä olikin sitten Hollywood-elokuva, jossa oli muutama mukiinmenevä toimintakohtaus, vaikka kokonaisuus oli juuri sitä paskaa, mitä amerikkalaiset tykkäävät suoltaa. Onneksi elokuvan pallinaamainen sankaripoika oppi elämästä lopussa ja rökitti kiusaajat pime"
