I will admit, this is pretty much the Americanized version of kung fu films. This is the sort of movie for the kung fu addled teens whose parents wouldn’t let them rent some of the Shaw Brothers film from the rundown video rental store on the corner of the street. The Forbidden Kingdom is a wide reaching film for the masses, rather than the specific movie that kung fu enthusiasts had hoped for. To be honest, there is only one reason that you need to see this movie, actually two reasons to see this movie. Jet Li and Jackie Chan on screen together for the first time in their careers. Glorious!!!
