DreamWorks' Kung Fu Panda is 1.5 hr of sheer FUN and ENTERTAINMENT - nicely paced, nicely-executed - GORGEOUS stylish VISUALLY-CAPTIVATING DETAILED animation!
Voiced by James Hong, Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, Jackie Chan, and etc., this movie is packed with CATHARTIC smoothly-choreographed fight scenes/sequences that leave the audience clapping for joy! Oh - and there were MANY humorous moments as well! (that includes the credits)
Love the 'ZEN' moments!
My main grouses are :
1) all the characters need to be better developed - especially the Furious Five,
2) the supporting cast don't really have too much opportunities to shine,
3) the plot is predictable AND the antagonist's fate in the end was not shown. So, that leaves us speculating. Maybe there will be a sequel?
STAY until after the credits for a SURPRISE scene.
Recommendation: GO SEE IT! It's a LOT of FUN!
GRADE : A (mostly for the HIGH-QUALITY visuals/animation)

I took my 6 year old daughter and she, my wife and I all thought it was funny. I like the way it was filmed and thought that it was a very beautiful looking movie with a fairly decent storyline. I would have liked to have have seen more character development in the all of the "furious 5" but that, I think is my only complaint.

If you love animated movies, then you will love this movie. Even if you don't, you will still love this movie. Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman as student and master.. who would have thunk it. But the two play very well off of each other and the animation is absolutely superb. From the beginning to the end, you are laughing and amazed. This movie has bumped The Incredibles to number 2 on my list of all time favorite animated movies. I can't wait to see it agan.

This movie seems just like 1/2 the movies the movie studios make these days. A computer animated misfit animal goes on an adventure to prove that he's just as good as the other animals. and plus, they shouldn't have used Jack Black. He's not as good in children movies as he is adult ones, like Tenaceous D, the Pick of Destiny.
P.S. i wouldn't recommend Tenaceous D to everyone. there is A LOT of cussing and innapropriate references. I would most definatly have adult permission or be an adult.
