Movie Reviews

Variety - 9/10 by Dennis Harvey While top-billed duo do indeed occupy plenty of screen time, this is basically the latest version of that post-Star Wars fantasy concept in which only a middle-class white teenage boy can save the universe from, y'know, Evil.
BrianOrndorf.com - 9/10 by Brian Orndorf Kingdom is a stiff, disturbingly ill-conceived fantasy film more consumed with playing slack-jawed fanboy than telling a compelling story worthy of these two giants.
The Cinema Source - 9/10 by Michael Dance An unapologetically old-fashioned fantasy ... solid enough entertainment for grown-ups, but something that many kids will absolutely adore.
Film School Rejects - 9/10 by Kevin Carr Every time I thought it was getting too serious for its own good, the film gives a wink and a nod to the audience to let them know that it still has a sense of humor.
FromTheBalcony - 9/10 by Bill Clark Chan and Li both deliver in their own unique ways, and there's enough action and humor to satisfy even the less enthusiastic martial arts fans out there.
Flipside Movie Emporium - 9/10 by Rob Vaux Toto and Scarecrow were dropped from the project after demanding excessive residuals on the back end.
Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema - 8/10 by Mark Pfeiffer A slapdash but amiable crossbreed of The Karate Kid and The Wizard of Oz, The Forbidden Kingdom functions as a martial arts cinema primer for American youth.
Ebert & Roeper - 8/10 by Richard Roeper One of the more entertaining movies we've seen in recent months.
eFilmCritic.com - 8/10 by Dan Lybarger Fortunately, Minkoff has one talent many of his American predecessors have lacked: When Chan or Li is fighting, he knows how to hold the camera still.
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada) - 8/10 by Brian Gibson The story, which should be forbidden, keeps coming back for more. Whenever the plot pops up, from predictable love scenes to the villainess who hates men for no reason to the crypto-Confucian lines, you keep wishing for the next fist to fly.
Paste Magazine - 8/10 by Robert Davis If The Forbidden Kingdom missteps, it's by assuming that its digitally enhanced stunts are more impressive than they are and, therefore, lavishing more attention on the kinetics than the story.
Urban Cinefile - 8/10 by Urban Cinefile Critics The first onscreen meeting of screen legends Jackie Chan and Jet Li is possibly reason enough to see this fantasy, whose extravagant martial arts sequences are choreographed by Woo-ping Yuen, whose signature was inked in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
