  • The special effects are effective, though not terribly special. While director Minkoff pays homage to past masters of the genre, the past masters were better at this game than he. show more

  • Will please its core audience but won't enthrall anyone over the age of 16. (Even that might be stretching the point.) show more

  • The Forbidden Kingdom may be nothing but disposable fun, but it is a great, heaping, overflowing helping of fun. If you're 10, it may also seem like "Citizen Kane." show more

    If you want to be entertained, go see this movie. Don't go into this movie judging it for what it wasn't intended to be, but rather for what it is, entertainment. Lots of action, comedy, great special effect moments, and finally a movie without cursing. Take the kids, grandparents, or a good friend. Enjoy!
