Still shot from the movie: The Forbidden Kingdom.

The Forbidden Kingdom

Martial Arts movie stars Jackie Chan and Jet Li both appear in Forbidden Kingdom. In this tale the two masters help an American teen (Michael Angarano), who has been transported back in time, to return an ancient artifact to its rightful owner. (Of course the transaction does not go smoothly, so there are plenty of opportunities for some high-kicking action.) Get the movie review and more. »

Jackie Chan’s many movie credits include Rush Hour (1, 2 and 3), The Medallion and The Tuxedo. We have not reviewed any of Jet Li’s films because most were awarded an R rating from the MPAA (they include War, and The One).
