KUNG FU PANDA Family Movie Review

Rent or buy Kung Fu Panda here. 

In short…it’s awesome. Kung Fu Panda is the best CGI-animation movie since The Incredibles. Clever writing, gorgeous animation, fun action, and stellar vocal work by Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, and…(drumroll please)…Jackie Chan! The latter lends a feel of authenticity to this kung-fu themed flick, but you don’t have to be a martial arts aficionado to enjoy the ride. Like The Incredibles, this works on multiple levels: kids movie, adult comedy, fantasy, and action movie. Jack Black is immensely likable and Dustin Hoffman charms. There’s even some decent morality and philosophy going on. And it’ll make you laugh. What more do you want? **** (out of five).
