Review: The Forbidden Kingdom

"...For a movie that has Chan, Li, Chou and acclaimed fight choreographer Yuen Woo-ping collaborating together, the action was surprisingly lacklustre, and this was not because of a lack of violence due to the PG rating. On the bright side, the amount of bone-crunching action was rather substantial, and the filmmakers weren’t shy in depicting some up-close-and-personal bloodletting. However, the fight maneuvers themselves were just too rote, and even paled in comparison to what these stars delivered in their most recent movies. Kungfu fans will be sorely disappointed by what’s on display here..."

This week's highlight: Iron Man!

The summer blockbuster season has officially started! You've probably already booked a seat on May Day, so this Highlight is virtually pointless. But for those who aren't sure what the heck Iron Man is all about, well, it's one of Marvel's comic book characters, albeit a lesser known one as compared to Spider-man or the X-men. Like Batman, Iron Man's just a powerless human, but was rich enough to build himself a fancy metal suit that makes him fly and battle evil. Uh-huh. It's a comic book, what did you expect? Still, everything looks positive for this one, except for one review on, which gave it a 3/5 stars. That's not a bad rating at all, but I was hoping it would be a slam-dunk. Oh well, there's still Indy 4 around the corner.
