Jackie and Jet 4ever!

03.12.2008

Movie executives must have been aching to get Jackie Chan and Jet Li—arguably the two biggest martial arts stars of this generation—together in one roundhouse and scissor kick-filled movie. Well that’s finally happening with the ancient epic (and, ugh, family film) THE FORBIDDEN KINGDOM, which sees the two legends team up, Jackie as “The Drunken Immortal” and Jet as “The Silent Monk.” The film sees a kung fu-obsessed American teen (Michael Angarano) head to ancient China, through some level of sorcery, to aid the two warriors in saving The Monkey King, who I believe is being played by the same monkey from Peter Jackson’s KING KONG. BELOW is the new poster for the film, and it certainly puts its stars to good use, but I can’t help but wonder how this film would have worked in modern-day China, sans special effects. Because who needs computers when you have these two?

Yes this does look Childish, yes this does look dumb, but guess what?

This looks fun too! I honestly can't wait to see this! It looks almost like a film adaptation of the video game Jade Empire, to an extent. Jet Li and Jackie Chan will finally be rocking it out in the same movie, and even if they don't fight, I'm still hip with this.

That's probably because I'm a sucker for martial arts movies though.

fuck jet li. i hate his martial arts and i hate his movies. jackie chan on the other hand was really starting to show his age in the awful rush hour 3. plus, it being a jet li movies...it'll probably have that bullshit "high-flying wirey" martial arts bullshit. whatever happened to good old fashioned martial arts flicks like jackie chans old stuff? fuck cgi martial arts and fuck high flying wirey martial arts. and fuck jet li too.

i gotta admit i would have prefered modern setting on this one ,jack's suffering some tom hanks bad hair in the trailer and the poster is kinda shoddy but i could still see me going to see this one. i'm interested to ee what they come out with but i'm not going to get my hopes up cause more often than not a killer combination like this can only disapoint or fail to meet my expectations.

was i crazy or did jet li say he was giving up the martial arts movies and focusing on serious acting?

cool but...

The cast is more than cool (even that kid from SKY HIGH isn't so bad) and the legend film worthy, but it's another ethnic flick....told from a white perspective. Loved Last Samurai, but it was the story of Japanese culture, told from the perspective of Tom Cruise. Glory is one of the great war films with black soldiers in the civil war spotlighted, told from the perspective of Matthew Broderick. Dances with Wolves is a classic and deserved Award Winner, but it is the story of vanishing Indian

Dances with Wolves is a classic and deserved Award Winner, but it is the story of vanishing Indian nations, told from the perspective of Kevin Costner. To name a few. Now we have what looks to be a solid flick, but it is the story of a famous Chinese Legend, told from the perspective of a white middle class teen from modern day.

nooo!

This Movie will be disappointing.
Their are clueless people who are excited to see this thinking they are gonna get an extended elaborate hard hitting battle between jackie and jet.These 2 guys shouldve made a film together years ago in a modern setting with a dark tone. Jet li himself said people should not get there hopes up about his fight with jackie in this film. I wish Quentin Tarantino would write and direct a traditional Kung fu film starring these 2 guys,that would be sick.
