Movie Reviews

The Stranger (Seattle, WA) - 9/10 by Andrew Wright Yeah, it's a dopey kid's movie, but -- significant detail -- one that feels like it was actually written for kids ... Also, whenever things threaten to get too schlocky, this amazing villainess with a magic bullwhip shows up.
One Guy's Opinion - 9/10 by Frank Swietek A reasonably entertaining throwback for the younger set, which nostalgic adults can also enjoy if they don't go expecting too much.
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.
Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema - 9/10 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.
Deseret News, Salt Lake City - 9/10 by Jeff Vice While some of this material was drawn from Chinese legends, it still feels a bit half-hearted and as if it was cobbled together from bits of other movies.
Entertainment Weekly - 9/10 by Adam Markovitz The worst part of the martial-arts epic The Forbidden Kingdom [is] a moment near the halfway mark when there arrives a gag that involves Chan getting a face full of urine. This kingdom really should be forbidden.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 9/10 by Emanuel Levy What promises to be a thrilling Clash of the Titans (due to first teaming of Chan and Li) turns out to be a mildly engaging, formulatic multi-generational saga of West meets East, more in the vein of Karate Kid than Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Internet Reviews - 8/10 by Steve Rhodes It's not an awful movie, but, although it has its moments, it is not a particularly good one either. [Still] every scene with the Monkey King in it is magical and mesmerizing. - 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.
Atlantic City Weekly - 8/10 by Lori Hoffman Fueled by Jackie Chan and Jet Li, this enjoyable romp has plenty of kick.
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
