Opening with an intricate homage to Japanese anime, Dreamworks' big gutsy cartoon epic exploits every “Ancient China” cliché Western audiences have come to expect with mystical landscapes of cherry blossoms and waterfalls rendered in bright crayon colours and a veritable menagerie of barnyard animals sporting coolie hats and chopsticks. The story is predictable and the underlying message of believing in oneself pretty much writes itself, but the laughs come easily and the action sequences are a marvel to behold. Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, and Jackie Chan are just a few of the surprise celebrity voices.

Criminally underrated action/comedy

A very humorous film about a panda who loves Kung Fu! Po, the panda, is the chosen one and trains with the Furious Five, who are his idols. The Furious Five consist of five different animals: Tigress, Mantis, Viper, Crane, and Monkey, each being an extremely skilled warrior. Set in ancient China, Po, the chosen one, must defeat a villain named Tai Lung. Tai Lung is able to defeat the Furious Five despite their skill, and wants to obtain the dragon scroll. However, he is met with Po’s inept fighting techniques. Will Po be able to defeat Tai Lung and save the scroll? Overall, the movie was a good mix of light hearted humour and non-violent action, topped with a decent but cliché plot.
Rating: 3/5

*Tigress appears*
Po: Oh, sorry, Master Tigress! I didn't mean to wake you up.
Tigress: You don't belong here.
Po: I know, I know. This is your room an-
Tigress: I meant you don't belong in the Jade Palace. You're a disgrace to kung fu and if you had any respect for who we are, and what we do, you will be gone by tomorrow morning.

Po (narrating): "Never before had a panda been so feared! And so loved. Even the most heroic warriors in all of China, the Furious Five, bowed in respect to this great master." Monkey (to Po): "We should hang out." Po: "Agreed."
