gettin' too old for this

That's a still from upcoming movie The Forbidden Kingdom, the long-anticipated colloboration between martial arts movie superstars Jackie Chan and Jet Li. People have been waiting for this movie for a long time. The problem is, I think we might have waited too long. I've always wanted to see a Jet/Jackie movie, or hell, maybe just a Jet/Jackie movie fight, because it would it be a lot of fun. But when I think about it, what I really want to see is a Jet/Jackie fight circa 1992. Dial it back fifteen years or so, when both actors were doing some of their best movies. Let's face it—both guys are kind of past their physical prime, and aren't making the kind of moves or movies they used to. Of couse, time travel is not readily available to us, so we're stuck with The Forbidden Kingdom, starring older, aging Jet and Jackie. And everything I've heard about this movie thus far has kind of sucked. I'm not expecting much out of this... and Jet Li is apparently urging others to do the same. Lower your expectations: Jet Li, Jackie Chan 'too old' to really throw down
