From the creators of Shrek and Madagascar comes the funniest movie of the year.
Prepare for awesomeness with Dreamworks Animation's Kung Fu Panda. Jack Black is perfect as the voice of Po, a noodle-slurping dreamer who must embrace his true self - fuzzy flaws and all - in order to become the legendary Dragon Warrior.
With high-kicking humour, tons of Kung Fu action and groundbreaking animation, Kung Fu Panda is a heartwarming story of courage for the whole family.
Borrowed this on DVD for the kids, watched it once with them and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Po works with his dad (who is a goose) in the family noodle shop, he dreams of being one of the great Kung Fu masters, but obviously his size is a little bit of an issue. When an accident labels him as the Dragon Warrior he must work hard to find the kung fu master inside himself whilst also convincing not only himself, but everyone else, that he is indeed the right person for the job. When danger arises the action is afoot.
The movie starts off slow with plenty of laughs as Po tries to become good at his kung fu, almost gives up and then finds that food is the best tool to get him working hard enough to master the art of kung fu. There is good character development here not only for Po but for the other kung fu masters and Po's father who must learn to let go. Then later on the action hits hard and fast with a huge battle or two, really drawing you into the movie and crossing all paws that Po is victorious.
This is a fun movie for the whole family.
This was a really impressive movie. Not often do I see an animated movie that has it all. Action, excitement, suspense, intrigue, and revelation. Throw in a really cool plot as well, and you have a real winner.
Po is a nobody with big dreams and little ability. But what he does have in great doses is determination. Nothing is going to stop him from reaching his goal of seeing the Dragon Warrior being selected only to discover that he is the Dragon Warrior.
Little does he know that this is the first step on a very long and rough road to a revelation at the end that will quite literally change his life forever.
Its a great movie for all ages with some good jokes and some brilliant stylised fight scenes.
Heres a hint for you. Its all about the secret ingredient noodle soup.
