    So what do you guys think about the movie, I give it a 7/10. But I was sitting in the very front row so everything was a little blurrier that usual so we were were all [​IMG] the whole time. It just had a lack of something that I can't out my finger on, it just seemed a little dry.

    I was actually looking forward to this movie. Because, what movie in the past actually had both Jet Li and Jackie Chan in one movie? Excuse me for what I'm about to say, but from the trailers, I kind of dropped interest because I found that the white guy was very random.. I don't know. He didn't really fit for some reason.

    I thought there was an original movie, as in, in Chinese or something. I found out that this IS the original.. so I might just wait for the DVD to come out instead. But I'm definitely looking forward to other movies like Iron Man. [​IMG]

    Jet Li and Jackie Chan are awesome, but the whole movie just seems to be a gimmick to make money. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is the movie about a kid (who happens to be white) who somehow magically ends up in ancient China, finds out an evil sorcerer/emperor is running amuck, trains/teams up with Jet and/or Jackie, and ends up saving the world?

    It was okay, just pretty much a whole mess of fight scenes more or less

    but seriously, forbidden kingdom distorted the story of Sun Wukong too much.

    Yep, but he was in it, so I watched it [​IMG]

    A Chinese Tall Tale, that was made a couple of years ago, warped the story too ... made it sci-fi ... but was still a great film ... Sun Wukong can fix anything lol
