Movie Reviews

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.
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.
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.
Flipside Movie Emporium - 9/10 by Rob Vaux Toto and Scarecrow were dropped from the project after demanding excessive residuals on the back end.
Oregonian - 9/10 by Mike Russell I could just hear the producers in the board room, cigar smoke swirling around their fat heads as they barked into their speakerphones: "Those Hong Kong guys are too old! We need an American in here to capture the Western markets
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.
Beliefnet - 8/10 by Nell Minow It does not take itself too seriously but it does take the action scenes seriously.
Ebert & Roeper - 8/10 by Richard Roeper One of the more entertaining movies we've seen in recent months.
Baltimore Sun - 8/10 by Michael Sragow Kung fu purists may scoff, but escapists with a sense of humor should romp through The Forbidden Kingdom.
Los Angeles Daily News - 8/10 by Bob Strauss The first teaming of Chan and Li is a delightful, action-packed martial-arts fantasy. There's not an original idea in the whole thing, but this gorgeous Hollywood production presents all the surefire elements well.
One Guy's Opinion - 8/10 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.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 8/10 by Sean Axmaker The Forbidden Kingdom may lack the grace of Crouching Tiger or the grandeur of Hero, but [Rob] Minkoff's affection and respect for the film culture is genuine.
