If you thought you'd be older than McCain by the time Jackie Chan and Jet Li finally teamed up, The Forbidden Kingdom is the answer to your Kung Fu prayers. At 54 and 45, respectively, their first joint venture has great fight scenes (choreographed by Crouching Tiger's Woo-ping Yuen), funny lines and both subtle and overt references to martial arts flicks of yore.
Extras: Pretty rudimentary, nothing spectacular here. Audio commentary, plus five short featurettes and an unremarkable blooper reel, which is surprising given Chan's movies often end with hilarious outtakes. Six deleted scenes show why they hit the cutting room floor. The Blu-ray offers an interactive picture-in-picture feature and BD Live interactivity. Both the BD and the two-disc DVD feature a digital copy.
Overview: Watching Chan and Li together at last easily eclipses any of the film's problems. Kids and fans of martial arts, fantasy films and '80s movies (hello, mullet ponytail!) will eat this up.
John McCain is the only person left alive who could possibly remember what life was like in ancient China. People are too sensitive. I loved this movie, never thought I would get to see them together.
The cheap shot at John McCain was really out of place here. Shame on you.
