The Forbidden Kingdom (aka the Monkey King retold)


_Sorry for the strange post yesterday, WordPress configuration error in wp_config.php_

"The Forbidden Kingdom": (功夫之王 gong1 fu1 zhi1 wang2 or Kung Fu’s King) is now showing. Its a rip off of the Monkey King ("孙悟空": sun2 wu3 kong4) from Journey to the West ("西游记": xi1 you2 ji4,lit. western travel story). Made me really nostalgic for China. Half the audience was Chinese. A terrific show even if not very accurate. But, Jet Li ("李连杰": li3 lian2 jie2)was awesome and rather than being kind of a stupid "chink" parody (I can say that!), Jackie Chan (“成龙“: cheng2 long2)was funny but good.

Great action scenes and of course, "Liu Yi Fei": ("刘亦菲":" liu4 yi4 fei1)was the tough chick in the flick and "Li Bing Bing": ("李冰冰":" li3 bing1 bing1) was a great evil chick 🙂 !
