  • I just saw Forbidden Kingdom with my husband and what a treat it was! I really loved all of the martial arts training scenes (there can’t be two tigers on one mountain!).

    Great movie.

  • I plan on seeing the film myself soon and I’m glad to hear its entertaining. I’ve been waiting to see Jet and Jackie in the same film for a long time.
