The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) Poster

Jet Li: The Monkey King, The Silent Monk



  • The Silent Monk : Learn the form, but seek the formless. Hear the soundless. Learn it all, then forget it all. Learn The Way, then find your own way.

  • The Silent Monk : But do not name it my friend, for it's like water; nothing can overcome water, yet it can overcome rock. It does not fight; it moves around the opponent, boneless, nameless. The true master dwells within. Only you can be free.

  • Jason Tripitikas : [Crossing the desert to get to the mountains. Jason sits next to the Silent Monk]  We're not going to make it are we?

    The Silent Monk : [No response] 

    Jason Tripitikas : What if I can't handle it? What if I freeze?

    The Silent Monk : [Monk slowly turns and smiles]  Don't forget to breathe.

  • The Monkey King : You have freed me traveller, now go free yourself.

  • Lu Yan : Don't tell me you consider it sinful to drink.

    The Silent Monk : It's sinful if you don't share.

  • The Silent Monk : What about the two tigers on one mountain?

    Lu Yan : We can kill each other later.

  • Lu Yan : You try to steal the staff for the Warlord!

    The Silent Monk : NO, FOOL! I'm on a mission to find the Seeker of the staff!

  • The Silent Monk : But, he's not even Chinese.
