'Forbidden Kingdom'

Which martial arts movie star shines brighter: Jackie Chan or Jet Li? The two superstars, who are also buddies, team up for the first time to take on the box office this weekend in the action-adventure tale "The Forbidden Kingdom." Set in ancient China, the tale finds Chan playing a wisecracking kung fu master and Li in a dual role as the stoic kung fu master the Silent Monk and the infamous Monkey King. Before you make your decision on who is the greatest of the two, we pit Chan against Li -- just for kicks.
