Excerpt: Well, this movie isn't anything particuarly exceptional, but it makes for some brainless fun. The action, fighting, and special effects are top-notch. The story is rather hoaky, the characters are underdeveloped.
Excerpt: Having the two greatest living movie martial artist in the world was a sign of movie history. This was a longtime coming and would be nice to see them in a couple more. I have to agree with many about the token white guy was cliche, but I'm guessing that is the only way for them to appeal to people...
Excerpt: This is your typical Kung-Fu flick where people display loads of martial arts and quick choreography but this one also has Jet Li AND Jackie Chan. Parts of it are humorous, parts are stupid, but all of the fighting is well done. There is some Crouching Tiger type stuff in there too.
Excerpt: When I sat down to watch this movie I thought to myself I would enjoy and fall in love with this movie. When it was over I had one thing to say, WOW. This movie had amazing martial arts scenes, but a fine story at best.
Excerpt: Finally, Jackie Chan and Jet Li together in one movie. I enjoy watching Jackie Chan's acrobatic kung-fu moves as well as Jet Li's finesse martial arts moves in their respective movies, but watching both in one film is a blast. A must own blu-ray film.

Excerpt: "The Forbidden Kingdom" is extremly entertaining from start to finish with Jackie Chan and Jet Li never looking better. As a fan of kung-fu films all throughout my life I must say that this movie has some of the best martial arts choreography I've seen in any martial arts film.
Summary: If you're not a 13 year-old boy, Forbidden Kingdom was not really made for you. I understand the appeal of Jet Li and Jackie Chan, together at last, and everyone's hopes for a harmonious combination like peanut butter and chocolate.
