The Forbidden Kingdom

It was only until recently that mom and I got to watch The Forbidden Kingdom in Powerplant. Good thing it is still showing there, as you can see in the ticket, the cinema is being shared by Ironman already. Showing time of 11am, 1pm and 3pm belongs to The Forbidden Kingdom while 3, 5, 7 and 9pm already belongs to Ironman. That is a proof that the movie will be outdated soon in the cinemas. hahahahaha

It is a modified story of "Su Mo Kong", a monkey king, who fought evil to restore peace and order in the land. It is one of the many chinese fables and legend that is very famous. I remembered when I was a kid, dad and mom used to us tell stories about "Su Mo Kong". It has a comic book version, a story book version and it even had a TV series both cartoons and real.

Anyways, the movie itself is a bit dull, well, hmmmmm yah a bit boring. But nonetheless, its worth it because it stars Jet Li and Jackie Chan in one movie. This is the first time after soooooo many years that they made a movie together, how cool is that?? Kung fu with Jet Li and Jackie Chan.... beat that!!! Sad to say that is the only highlight and exciting factor for me so my conclusion is that it's still worth it even though it is dull and boring HAHAHAHAHAHA!
