Forbidden Kingdom

Synopsis: An American teenager obsessed with martial arts makes an exciting discovery in a pawnshop in Chinatown. It appears to be the legendary stick weapon of the Monkey King, the infamous Chinese sage and warrior. He is transported back into time to Ancient China where he meets a band of martial arts warriors and joins them on their journey to save an imprisoned Monkey King (Jet Li). [Source: Yahoo!

What do you expect, a combination of two heavenly martial arts stars, Jet Li and Jackie Chan in a single movie, must watch right?? Expects lots of fast and furious fighting scene (which the movie duly delivers), and the two stars battling it out with each other on martial arts and of course Jackie (the funny guy) always suaning Jet Li (the serious guy). I almost have a hard time trying to control my laughter at the cinema. One thing that kind of disturb me though is the mix of Chinese and English in the movie. Imagine old ancient time in China, and the people can speak English?? Weird.... Hmm, well, not a bad movie on the whole.
Rate: 3.5/5
