Kung Fu Panda
Prepare for awesomeness.
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…
tonnes of humour and with plenty of epic fight scenes that make you want to rip a boxing bag in half!

Ach ja Kung Fu Panda. Ich liebe diese Film Reihe. Ich finde Kung Fu Panda ist die beste Animationsfilmreihe überhaupt (abgesehen von den meisten Disneyfilmen). Außerdem ist in Kung Fu Panda eine der lustigsten Filmszenen aller Zeiten.
Funny and colourfull! Loveable characters and good story! A lot of fun!
Amazing! Funny and colourfull and funny story

I was almost dreading seeing this movie - we won tickets to the screener and from the first scene I found myself laughing out loud. The movie is so much better than I thought it would be (and that was bad) - I expected the comedy to be slapstick/junior/potty but it wasn't. The story was also good enough to keep my kids focused glued to the screen. The animation is wonderful. Music is tasteful. I can't imagine anyone but Jack Black pulling off the voice though - he definitely made the movie for me. The only thing distracted me was that most of the movie I spent trying to figure out who was doing the…
I have a really bad cold today which may account for some of the reason this movie kept making me tear up (but if I'm being honest I think it's just a very sweet story about believing in yourself and not giving up!).
It's a very good movie with two downsides: 1) Seth Rogen and 2) an abrupt ending. I find Rogen's voice so grating it's a blessing he only has two or three lines in the whole film. The ending is fine, I suppose, but after such a long 'action' sequence it feels like not enough of a pay off.
I would recommend this to adults and children alike, especially those adults who are sick in bed!
Po, un vendeur de nouilles fainéant qui rêve d'aventures et de kung-fu, se voit désigner comme le légendaire guerrier dragon. Alors que les autres élèves sont jaloux du nouvel arrivant, il est temps pour lui de tester ses capacités en affrontant Taï-Long, le plus féroce élève de Maitre Fong.
L'animation est magnifique, la créativité des batailles, le rendu, la vitesse, la texture des personnages, ... c'est un travail d'orfèvre. Quel dommage que l'historie ne suive pas derrière, c'est à l'image de la mort du maître tortue qui aurait pu être une excellente opportunité pour parler de la mort aux enfants...
Un bon divertissement, à voir comment à été négociée la suite étant donné qu'il y a un bon potentiel maintenant que l'introduction est terminée.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Who said I wasn't an animation fan? To tell the truth, I haven't been into it as much in recent…
