People have been making a big deal over The Forbidden Kingdom, the first time that Jackie Chan and Jet Li are going to appear together on-screen. What they have not been saying is that the film looks like a crappy off-shoot of The Tuxedo. As you will see from the first trailer below, a young boy from modern-day America finds an artifact that transports him to ancient China. There he meets a dreadlocked Jackie Chan who leads him into an epic battle.

All I can say is that I can wait for this film to come out. See for yourself and let us know what you think below. The Forbidden Kingdom hits theaters April 18, 2008.
