Forbidden Kingdom opens this weekend, finally pairing Jackie Chan and Jet Li on screen at long last. And when you have two martial arts legends of this caliber on screen at the same time, you need someone pretty commanding as the villain in order to be believable.
That role went to Collin Chou as the villainous Jade War Lord. Chou has worked with Chan and Li before seperately and now he more than holds his own with these two larger-than-life legends in the same movie. In fact, Chou thinks he might even fare pretty well in a real life fith with Jackie or Jet.

The teaming martial arts enthusiasts have been awaiting for more than a decade has finally come to fruition on the silver screen... Jackie Chan and Jet Li, together at last!
The movie is Forbidden Kingdom and the story is actually better than it sounds. Michael Angarano lives out every teenage boy's fantasy as a martial arts-obsessed kid who is suddenly thrust into ancient China with the task of defeating the powerful Jade War Lord (Collin Chou) and freeing the Monkey King. Yes, it might sound a little like a stoner comedy (it could work on that level too, I suppose), but this one is better seen than explained.
