The Forbidden Kingdom Review


Now is probably not the best time to write this as im in the middle of some amateur kung fu fighting for the last slice of pizza *Slap to the face* (hey i said it was amateur)


Anyway its good to see Jackie and Jet in a film together, I cant believe it has taken so long. The film is okish....watchable....enjoyable.......good i guess. Ok im just gonna say it, Im pissed off with Hollywood trying to make kung fu films. *twist of the nipples* These American kung fu films are destroying the face of the martial arts film genre. 'Bullet Proof Monk' you have Sean William Scott trying his hand at it, 'Forbidden Kingdom' has Michael Angarano trying it, you even have Chris Tucker thinking he can kick ass in the 'Rush Hour' franchise. Martial arts in my opinion should be left to the experts especially where film is concerned *Tug on the armpit hairs* and this, lets face it, is Asians.......oh and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Its all gotten too westernized, the storys the actors and the fake CGI fights. And im not saying we should be strict to the old skool films, i do embrace the SFX every now and again. 'Crouchin Tiger' used a crap-load of rope and was amazing, 'Shaolin Soccer' used crap-loads of CGI and was DISGUTINGLY AMAZING!!!! but i want these films to stay true to their roots, thats why I love them. *block the smack to the chin* the 'Police Story's, the 'Iron Monkey's, the 'Enter The dragon's.


Well anyway this film aint too shabby plus there is some very good fight scenes between Chan and Li that will be any lover of Kung Fu films cup of tea.Oh and the chick in it is a MEGA BABE!!!!!!!!!!!(sorry i failed to really share my views on this particular film)


*and a mouth fart to the belly secures the last slice of pizza....I AM THE ONE!!!!!*
