Forbidden Kingdom

This movie was awesome. Forget everybody who went to this movie looking to see "remains of the day" or something. The movie gave exactly what it promised, which was a fantasy story, with Jet Li and Jackie Chan. It's basically a "Wizard of Oz" remake for boys who want to kick kung-fu ass.

Which is me.

The story starts in our world and then takes us to a great mythical world where Jackie gets to bring back his classic drunken master character. Jet li even smiles a lot. I would recommend this movie to ANYONE who would want to see it.

What I mean by that is that it IS as cool as it looks- the "please don't suck" prayer is unneeded.

I gave it a 9 because it proposes a certain story, tells it well, and fulfills each of it's promises. I thoroughly enjoyed 90% of it, so it gets a 90 from me!
