Movie Reviews

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.
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.
Paste Magazine - 9/10 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.
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.
Filmcritic.com - 9/10 by Bill Gibron Is it possible to recommend a movie based on a single scene alone? If it's The Forbidden Kingdom, the answer is an obvious "Yes."
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 8/10 by Colin Covert Unfailingly lighthearted, the film's fight scenes are stylized, soaring wire work and gravity-defying digital sorcery rather than blood-and-bruises beatdowns.
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.
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.
Ebert & Roeper - 8/10 by Richard Roeper One of the more entertaining movies we've seen in recent months.
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.
Shadows on the Wall - 8/10 by Rich Cline Combines outrageously entertaining fight scenes with just enough of an ancient Chinese legend to keep us hooked
Atlantic City Weekly - 8/10 by Lori Hoffman Fueled by Jackie Chan and Jet Li, this enjoyable romp has plenty of kick.
