When the Valley of Peace is threatened, lazy Po the panda discovers his destiny as the "chosen one" and trains to become a kung fu hero, but transforming the unsleek slacker into a brave warrior won't be easy. It's up to Master Shifu and the Furious Five -- Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey -- to give it a try.
One of the finest films to come out of DreamWorks Animation's canon and certainly their funniest film to date, Kung Fu Panda is an energetic blend of kinetic direction, smart writing, sparkling wit, vibrant camerawork, tight editing, first-rate animation & exuberant score that not only works as a downright hilarious comedy but also as a thrilling action extravaganza & a fascinating coming-of-age story.
Set in ancient China, which is populated by anthropomorphic talking animals, the story of Kung Fu Panda follows a cheeky, clumsy & squishy giant panda named Po who aspires of becoming a kung fu master. His wish is granted when he's unexpectedly proclaimed as Dragon Warrior who will fulfil an ancient prophecy but finds himself to be the subject of…
Kung Fu Panda is a breath-takingly animated film that is at once a loving homage to a variety of martial-art film moments and a tender look at a relationship in a single parent household between a father (James Hong) and son (Jack Black as the title panda). Character design, voice talent and action pieces are vibrant and supremely executed. I can't stress enough how fantastic the voice cast is.
There are few animated features that can match K.F.P. for wit, humor and creativity. The panda, Po, states in the opening that there is no charge for awesomeness and attractiveness. I paid $8 to see it in the theatre, and $15 for the blu-ray. Your false claim aside, it was well worth it Po.

My favorite Dreamworks film. Intelligent message about secret ingredients and dragon scrolls and their relation to the misleading psychoanalytics of identity and desire.
I'm late to the party on this one, especially considering I'm a huge fan of animation in general, but I figured I had better get through the first two entries into the trilogy before seeing Kung Fu Panda 3. I was skeptical for the past few years of it's quality, mainly because of it's absurd title and uninteresting premise (personally, at least). I had anticipated a film chock full of juvenile jokes intended for middle school boys, another entry into the hit or miss Dreamworks canon.
I'm happy to say I was wrong! Kung Fu Panda thrives because of it's stellar vocal performance from the underrated Jack Black, and a whole lot of heart. It's a sweet, cheery and delightfully…
Who doesn't like pandas? Especially when they're voiced by Jack Black. He fits the title role perfectly. While it may be aimed a younger audience I could appreciate the plot and its underlying lessons. Animations can have a deeper meaning with a proper script. I had a lot of fun watching this even though it was pretty predictable.
Casting was key here and the performances were memorable. Honestly, my expectations were pretty low because it was an animation for a much younger audience. I watched The Exorcist when I was 12 so age shouldn't matter now. Soundtrack is usually overlooked, but the music flowed well with the narrative and its themes.
As a kung fu movie its a fun ride…

Kung Fu Panda is a very lovely homage to the genre of martial-arts films. Its animation is beatiful, and there is a very deep message about finding your purpose in life. There are many likeable things about this movie, so is it the way, it deals with the relationship of a father, that wants his son to be like him, and his son, who is dreaming of a career in Kung-Fu fighting.
Nevertheless, it was the plot, that didn't catch me. I didn't like the story of Po, because it was simply way too predictable. For sure, everything was quite cute and really loveable, but it didn't…
Great characters and story, awesome fight scenes and gorgeous scenery… I love this movie.
I'd never seen it! I really liked it!
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

i also liked it
Hey, that's a pretty cool movie!
The movie looks great, I particularly appreciate the work on colours. The animation and the creativity of the Kung Fu fights are amazing. The chopsticks fight for the dumpling is phenomenal.
All in all, in story and style, I feel this movie respects a lot the Chinese culture of stories about warriors and stuff (I don't know shit about it, but it felt respectful, well researched, and not exploitative).
My problem with the movie is its humour. I don't find it funny and the jokes are somewhat forced. It is underlined by the fact that the story works so well as a dramatic serious story. I mean , the way the different characters are…
Divertida y llena de acción que maneja de una manera asombrosa su concepto y de cierta manera llena ser emocional en ciertos momentos.

Kreativ. Schönes Szenario, echt witzig, sowohl auch witzige Dialoge. Schon ein bisschen optisch in die Jahre gekommen. Schöne Martial Arts Sequenzen. Sympathische Figuren und eine schöne Message, die sich durch den ganzen Film zieht! Der Film ist zwar für Kinder geeignet, hat aber eine Message, die man in dem Alter eher noch nicht ganz verstehen kann. Genau passend zeitlich strukturiert, nicht zu lang und nicht zu kurz - eben genau passend.
Netter Film für zwischendurch :)!

Kung Fu Panda was overall a very enjoyable experience. I personally do not like Dreamworks Animation's films, but Kung Fu Panda managed to sneak out a different story with a tone different from the majority out there.
The animation is simply outstanding, especially the fight sequences and the cinematography which shows us them. I fell in love with the visuals of this movie. However, the story is a little poor, and some of its "deeper" conversations fall a little silly, but that's not to blame, as Dreamworks movies are heavily aimed at kids and rarely focus on delivering some lessons or symbolism to adults. Keeping a kid's perspective in mind, Kug Fu Panda rocks!!
I decited to watch all Kung Fu Panda movies, i'm not sure why. Turns out these movies are quite mediocre. Yet they are not bad and I guess they are okay for kids.
This first one was fine. The story was fun and the action was quite exciting. Yet the characters are just okay and not really interesting. Jack black and the other voice actors do a fine job. The designs are hit or miss.
Overall, like I said mediocre, but fine for kids I guess.
