Perhaps we have reached a state where the lush detail of computer generated images is no longer eye-popping; it has become expected. The animation looks phenomenal during the heat of an intense fight scene, but even during the slower moments such as when Po is taking a bath the bubbles look crazy realeverything looks astounding.
Then there's Jackie Chan. But the scroll contains nothing but a shiny surface. Fortunately for Po, there's a kung fu temple called the Jade Palace high above the village cue many scenes in which Po wheezingly hauls his pudgy frame up the vertiginous staircasewhere the aging master Oogway has deemed that Po is in fact not a lard-reared slacker but the Dragon Warrior of legend who will save the village.
Before Oogway is de-Chi-ified he warns Kai that the Dragon Warrior is his true foe and so Kai sets out to destroy him. If you do not like the first two films it is highly unlikely that this one will change your mind. I mean come on… how on earth do you animate a snake doing Kung Fu and have it look cool.
All of the all ready established characters stayed in character with the minor exception of Mr. Using what they learned from Po and about who they are, Li, Tigress, Mr.
Rushing to see several iconic kung fu fighters, the clumsy panda inadvertently causes a wise sage named Master Oogway Randall Duk Kim to identify Po as the legendary Dragon Warrior. One never forgets that Black is Po - his voice is too distinctive - but that's not a distraction. Let me get this out of the way: Both the writing and the performances in this film are a step up from the previous entry and I would even go so far as to say that this movie is funnier than original.
The film is set in and around China's Valley of Peace, where there are no humans, only talking animals. Thankfully the movie succeeds quite well on this level. Good use of various art styles from the ultra-stylized montage scene to the incredible detail put into everything. First of all, some of the voice casting felt completely wrong.
While Kung Fu Panda isn't the movie to re-invigorate the genre, it's made with enough technical savvy and provides sufficient fun especially for younger viewers that it should be a major player at the summer box office. At start-up, the disc commences with a preview for 'Puss in Boots — 3D,' and afterwards, opens with an animated main menu and music.
Is Po meant to read the dragon scroll and become the unbeatable Dragon Warrior, or is his father right—is his destiny to take over the family noodle shop instead. But I was proved wrong almost immediately and I am very glad for it. From the excellent score, to the great performances given by the voice over actors old and new, to the funny jokes and the cool fights provided by the script this story does pretty much everything the original two films did, but does it just a tad bit better.
Thus, Kung Fu Panda ends up presenting a message about believing in oneself that might not have come across as successfully had it tended toward outright fatuousness. It was also a lot of fun seeing how each character had a totally different fighting style in keeping with which animal they were.
After introducing Li to Shifu and his friends, the Valley of Peace is suddenly attacked by past Kung Fu Masters turned into jade statues under the control of Kai.
What else can I say. I worship the ground Dustin Hoffman walks on… but him as the voice of the sage Chinese Kung Fu master that trains the furious 5 and Po???. When Kung Fu Panda was released inI was not prepared. Like Po, the titular Kung Fu fighting panda bear, the film was a diamond in the rough - a wise Buddhist parable about destiny, identity, mentality and harmony, which also happened to be a cute and funny cartoon that tripled as an epic.
The Blu-ray edition of ‘Kung Fu Panda’ packs in almost all of the supplemental content that appears on the “Secrets of the Furious Five” 2-disc DVD, presents all of the video content in high definition, and even sports a trio of generous exclusives (discussed at length in the next section).
Po the panda and his friends are finally back for Kung Fu Panda 3. In the last installment of the series, Po faced the truth about his origin and the fact thought he was the last panda.
