Summary: This movie is about a young-ish panda is one of the laziest animals in the area (called the valley of peace). After a long selection process he becomes the one panda that must protect their home land from all the enemies. The sad thing is that Po doesn't really know much protection action and must learn it on the fly. This movie has the most awesome fighting scenes of 2008 and the animation is so good in this movie.
Excerpt: POPCORN METER:5.0 RE-WATCHABLE METER:5.0 Kung-Fu Panda is a very good movie. Animated or not, it's in my top 20 list of the past 10 years. It's a funny action flick that delivers the entire 90 minutes. The HD picture quality was already outstanding. The fight scene between The Furious Five and Tai Lung on the bridge is the standard to which all animated movies should be judged. The 3D conversion is simply icing on the cake. The depth is consistent throughout.
Summary: Though it doesn't quite hold the wonder and magic of a Pixar film, Kung Fu Panda is a surprisingly inspirational and consistently funny animated film. The voice acting is top notch by a cast of talented A-listers who disappear into their roles and the animation itself is rich and hyperrealistic in a very fun way.
Excerpt: Kung Fu Panda is pure 3D gold! It's one of the best 3D Blu-rays, if not THE best Blu-ray 3D out there right now. The movie is great, although it is overpowered by it's sequel, and the Blu-ray is awesomeness. The Blu-ray's video transfer is phenomenal. Colors are fantastic, details are strong, black levels are superb, and the contrast is superb. The film doesn't play in 2D as the disc says, but who cares? The 3D is phenomenal.
Excerpt: A clumsy and gluttonous panda is revealed to be the chosen one to become the Dragon Warrior and defeat the evil former student of his master. Kung Fu Panda pretty much does what it says on the tin. It's exactly the kind of Americanized version of Eastern culture I was expecting, including the Karate Kid format, usual fortune cookie philosophy and pseudo-martial arts, right through to the slightly embarrassing use of Carl Douglas' Kung Fu Fighting for the credits.
Summary: Po (Jack Black) adores Furious Five - Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Monkey (Jackie Chan), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Viper (Lucy Liu), and Crane (David Cross). He is trained by Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) after being chosen by Oogwey as the Dragon Warrior. Tai Lung (Ian McShane) escapes from a heavily guarded prison and is going to Peace Valley. The message and action of the film was refreshing for an animated film. Jack Black engulfs the character and the visuals were good.
