Movie Reviews

Eclipse Magazine - 9/10 by Michelle Alexandria The Forbidden Kingdom may not be a classic martial arts movie, but it's got heart, a certain sneaky charm and more than enough pure fun to make up for that.
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
Salt Lake Tribune - 9/10 by Sean P. Means The long-awaited pairing of the 44-year-old Li and the 54-year-old Chan is a fizzle (they only fight each other once, early in the film) that makes you wish they had met up in their prime.
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.
ColeSmithey.com - 9/10 by Cole Smithey From 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.
Reeling Reviews - 8/10 by Laura Clifford The ever-impish Chan is perfectly suited to the wine-reliant wanderer and his agility still impresses at 50 ...a unique blend that offers something for everyone while respecting its origins.
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.
Ebert & Roeper - 8/10 by Richard Roeper One of the more entertaining movies we've seen in recent months.
Laramie Movie Scope - 8/10 by Robert Roten An enjoyable big budget film with lots of fancy sets, special effects and great fight scenes.
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.
