The Forbidden Kingdom

Went to the cinema to watch The Forbiden Kingdom.i just want to watch this movie since last week, but only had a chance to do so last night.Really hope that this movie is worth for my money,because there is no money guarantee back if you dont satisfied with any film that you've watched..haha.

Let us take a look at the plot.

A new kid , is bullied into robbing an old man's store.He Finds a magical staff, gets transported to ancient China, where he's in the middle of a fantastical fight between the Monkey King and the Jade Warlord. He learns to fight, and learns to believe himself.

All in all, it was a decent movie. Typical ending and typical beginning,i mean there is no suprises element there.But,still a good movie to watch though.

There were several scenes that were apparent that Jackie Chan wasn't the fighter, and the big fight between he and Jet Li also showed that both were stunt men doing the fighting.Its good to see that Jackie Chan and Jet Li acting in a same movie.

Overall,i think all the cast did a wonderful job, the characters worked well together. I felt for all of them, even the villains. Most importantly,the cinematography and locations are beautiful and the martial arts are choreographed fantastically. What do you expect when two of Kung fu Taikoo in collaborated together huh?Amazing.

It was actually a very fun movie. There was some great comedy aspects as well as some really cool fight scenes. It wasn't too serious, kept a good story line, and neither the comic relief or fighting were overdone. I've seen some films where they just take it too far, this one had a great balance.i dont even have any chances to feel sleepy,hehe

I would recommend this movie. It was great for a good range of ages. It even had a good moral beneath it.The movie is good,eventhough not that perfect.At least this movie doesn't make me walk out of the theater and ask for my money back.

*it was good to see Jackie and Jet Li together.i felt this movie a little Karate Kid mixed with the lord of the rings.
