The Forbidden Kingdom


To those that have not seen a new kung fu movie - The Forbidden Kingdom was probably the best kung fu movie in the later half of this cycle of a billion years. At an instance, it seemed a little too concurrent- but fear not as there was jest that even a quadruple blinking kung fu master might believe was semi-respectable. Even though there was much CGI motion, the actors disengaged from the more recent roof battles to existing in only a sole scene of battles above the sky and within the gate of no gate.

The story itself read much like a cyclone and the on screen action was a constant tug of war between synthetically natural and manufactured weapons of duality. I found myself tied into believing that the no shadow kick really was better than just thinking about what the no shadow kick could be. Again I don’t want to give too much away about the movie, but I do give it a solid 3 ninjas for this abrupt attempt at creating a new dimension of how kung fu movies can relate topics that are merely too prophetically sideways to try to explain without the benefit of a kite or two.
