Movie Reviews

Oregonian - 9/10 by Mike RussellI 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
EmanuelLevy.Com - 9/10 by Emanuel LevyWhat 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.
Paste Magazine - 9/10 by Robert DavisIf 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.
The Stranger (Seattle, WA) - 9/10 by Andrew WrightYeah, 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.
Flipside Movie Emporium - 9/10 by Rob VauxToto and Scarecrow were dropped from the project after demanding excessive residuals on the back end.
Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema - 9/10 by Mark PfeifferA 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.
Film Blather - 8/10 by Eugene NovikovMinkoff and Fusco blur the line between homage and laziness.
ColeSmithey.com - 8/10 by Cole SmitheyFrom a philosophical viewpoint it's fitting that the inaugural movie to unite martial arts legends Jackie Chan and Jet Li is a fantasy film for young teenagers. Forbidden Kingdom" may not be "Enter the Dragon," but it's not supposed to be.
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 8/10 by Colin CovertUnfailingly lighthearted, the film's fight scenes are stylized, soaring wire work and gravity-defying digital sorcery rather than blood-and-bruises beatdowns.
Film Journal International - 8/10 by Daniel EaganA surprisingly well-paced and satisfying kung-fu adventure that honors its stars and treats their story respectfully.
