The Forbidden Kingdom
Chan & Li Together... In a Lackluster Movie
I liked the fighting, but it was NOTHING that I haven't seen before. It was mostly fancy wire work stuff with some CG thrown in and I don't like that stuff in kung fu movies. The whole flick is just one great big homage to old school kung fu movies, but there was no sense of purpose. I wasn't even impressed by the Chan vs. Li matchup, either. Their whole fight consisted of each one not landing a single hit on the other, for about 4 min. Also, they weren't even enemies, which made the fight pointless. I liked the kung fu movie references and a couple of the action scenes, but in the end it was kind of disappointing.
