Tonight, the usual suspects (me, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog, [livejournal.com profile] pmat, and [livejournal.com profile] shakati went to see "The Forbidden Kingdom," the new Chinese martial arts fantasy with both Jackie Chan and Jet Li.

Because the spoiler tolerance of my friends varies wildly, I'm not going to say anything about the plot. I will say that Li and Chan turn in relatively unexciting chop socky in this one, but do better acting than I've seen either of them do in a while. The movie was filmed in China, so you get great, genuine, mountain scenery along with the usual leaping and destruction of property. Unlike "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," there is a lot of genuine magic involved. And a *much* happier ending.

It's more fun than most of the reviews suggest. Just go and see it. And if anyone wants a plot synopsis, just comment and give me a means of e-mailing you privately.
