  • This is thus the strongest drawing point of the movie for those of us who wanted to see the chemistry between the two actors
  • It was really funny to see the two masters teach the boy kung fu
  • But any day, I still hope to see the two mega stars joined hands to star in a movie targeted at Asian market

      The Forbidden Kingdom is 2008 block buster that sees the first time two mega stars staring in the movie together. They are Jackie Chan and Jet Li. In their entire careers, they both had filmed many movies , but never one together. This is thus the strongest drawing point of the movie for those of us who wanted to see the chemistry between the two

      actors.

      The storyline combines sometime old and some new. It is almost a joke to see the people dressing Chinese traditional costumes but yet speaking in English. The movie tells of a young non Chinese boy who travels back in time to help free the Monkey King from the evil warlord.

      Along the way, he met his drunkard master, an orphan girl who ...


      • had her parents killed by the evil warlord and a monk to help him complete his task. They, of course, went through some hard and tough times together. It was really funny to see the two masters teach the boy kung fu.

        The chemistry among the two stars are not strong. It evens seems more like a gimmick. Jackie Chan played the role of the

        drunkard master, while Jet Li had dual roles as both the monk and the Monkey King.

        The Forbidden Kingdom is clearly not a movie made for the Asian audiences but is targeted at the Hollywood audiences. It is still an enjoyable movie. But any day, I still hope to see the two mega stars joined hands to star in a movie targeted at Asian market.
