Over the weekend, before my surgery, my darling friends (Nicky, Freddy and Marky) dragged me out, to watch Forbidden Kingdom, at The Cathay.
My thoughts on the movie:
It seems like a mix of Lord of the Rings Trilogy and mystical story of Sun Wu Kong, especially with the ‘middle land / kingdom’ phrase and the ‘ring of fire’ scene. A mix of languages prove to be quite confusing and having a Caucasian in the film, that’s something strange. And I could never understand why Golden Sparrow has to say “she” when she’s referring to herself… But other than that, the fight scenes were good.
Well, at least the boys liked it…
Or should i say, were delighted with it, especially with Golden Sparrow (Liu Yi Fei).
Overall, i would rate it 3/5.
More points for the fighting scenes…
Worthy of a weekday ticket.
