Kung Fu Panda (Mark Osborne, John Stevenson, 2008)

bung

Po is a panda. He’s a panda that works for a restaurant making noodles. He’s also a panda that spends all his spare time dreaming of being a kung fu warrior. Unfortunately for him, he’s also clumsy and large. Actually, make that extremely clumsy and large. The action begins when Oogway, a very old and wise turtle, foresees the escape of Tai Lung, an evil and unstoppable snow leopard, once the prodigal tutee of renowned martial arts tutor Shifu, now so bad and ferocious that he needs to be locked up in a cage. Although (wishfully) certain that Tai Lung cannot escape, Shifu has a ceremony to pick the Dragon Warrior – the one, of his five current tutees – that will be able to defeat Tai Lung. However, in Po being so keen to see the ceremony, he ends up inside it, and, through a comedy of errors, Oogway selects him as the Dragon Warrior.

It’s not the stuff of rocket manuals, but it is the set up for Kung Fu Panda, one of last year’s funniest and most bighearted movies. The animation is of Dreamworks’ distinctive style, but going Chinese seems to have boded well, for the detail on all the animals, the scenic mountains, not to mention the Matrix-styled fight scene on the bridge, are all delicious crafted with rich colours and hues. There is a plethora of famous voice actors – Angelina Jolie voices Tigress, the most talented fighter of Shifu’s five, Jackie Chan voices Monkey and Lucy Liu Viper, etc. The five animals are all rather sadly unused (I for one would have loved to hear more of Seth Rogen. However, Ian McShane drips menace as the baddie and Dustin Hoffman has the tired red panda down to a T. However, this is easily the Jack Black show. A fine comedic actor and an even finer singer, he conflates these two skills to really bring Po to life. Po is every bit a children's hero, and in a day and age where we are constantly being reminded of how fat we are, Po is tribute to all that one can achieve with self-belief, not svelteness.

There are comic moments aplenty – many of the fight scenes themselves are comic, and the film is unpretentious and fun enough for it to be enjoyed by children and adults alike. The only Dreamworks cartoon close to reaching Pixar’s level these days, and it’s a far, far lot better than the overrated Ratatouille

Anna Banana said...

All right, I won't even TRY to deny it -- I love this movie. What can I say? I'm a big ol' kid at heart. Jack Black never fails to make me laugh and snort uncontrollably (in a kid-friendly movie that is), and Dustin Hoffman really added that extra "oomph" for me.

The film stresses his work ethic, even though it doesn’t seem to get him too far. It’s only when his master is taught a lesson of perseverance and compassion, that he is able to thrive. The film does well to emphasize the importance of teamwork, and teachers. How not all students are built the same, and individualized lessons are sometimes needed. It teaches that one must work with what we have to succeed

Po the Panda is a kung fu fanatic. Unfortunately, Po is also the laziest of all animals so it’s going to take a black belt in dedication for Po to save the world. Perfect for both family audiences and kung fu aficionados.

It’s funny at times, and quite exciting, but of course you know where it’s going from its opening moments, so no surprises dramatically. But as animated features go this sits a bit above average on the enjoyment scale.
