Critic Reviews of "The Forbidden Kingdom"Richard Roeper Ebert & RoeperApril 21, 2008
One of the more entertaining movies we've seen in recent months.David Fear Time OutApril 18, 2008
Every time the focus switches to Michael Angarano channeling his inner Ralph Macchio, The Forbidden Kingdom reminds you that it's primarily an act of occidental tourism.Mark Rahner Seattle TimesApril 18, 2008
It might take a Zen master to explain exactly what audience this is aimed at.Peter Hartlaub San Francisco ChronicleApril 18, 2008
It's difficult to resist, especially if you're a 12-year-old boy whose parents won't let you rent Once Upon a Time in China or the Kill Bill movies.Stephanie Zacharek Salon.comApril 18, 2008
When Chan and Li match wits, each celebrates the other's presence. This isn't just a martial-arts display; it's generosity and camaraderie in motion.Rafer Guzman NewsdayApril 18, 2008
Thanks to the two stars' disparate styles - the laser-like focus of Li and the whirlwind whimsy of Chan - The Forbidden Kingdom makes up for its flaws with plenty of eye-popping moments.Sean Axmaker Seanax.comMarch 24, 2016
... has fun with the tale and Americanizes the genre without losing the pleasures of its Asian inspirations.Jeffrey Lyles Lyles' Movie FilesOctober 18, 2012
Surprisingly a lot of fun, with a simple good vs. evil plot, nice action sequences and a battle of the ages between two of the biggest martial art movie masters.Joshua Starnes ComingSoon.netMarch 22, 2011
If you're a big Jackie Chan and/or Jet Li fan this movie was made for you and you should go see it on the big screen once. But because of a complete lack of storytelling effort from the filmmakers, there's no reason to ever see it more than once.Prairie Miller NewsBlazeSeptember 09, 2008
Kung fu fever and fluff mix it up with hordes of floating knights in shining armor with bad attitude, and just a little heavy on the dressing, courtesy of the costume department.John J. Puccio Movie MetropolisAugust 28, 2008
Think of it as a kung fu fairy tale almost anyone can appreciate.Urban Cinefile Critics Urban CinefileJuly 18, 2008
The first onscreen meeting of screen legends Jackie Chan and Jet Li is possibly reason enough to see this fantasy, whose extravagant martial arts sequences are choreographed by Woo-ping Yuen, whose signature was inked in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
