-Gene Shalit, TODAY
Prepare for awesomeness with DreamWorks Animation's KUNG FU PANDA, "a delightful movie that can stand among the very best animated features" (Leonard Maltin, Entertainment Tonight). Jack Black is perfect as the voice of PO, a noodle slurping dreamer who must embrace his true self - fuzzy flaws and all - in order to become the Dragon Warrior. With groundbreaking animation, an all-star cast and high-kicking humor, KUNG FU PANDA is "Ultra satisfying entertainment... There's heart in this movie and that's the secret ingredient." -Richard Corliss, TIME
This silly movie just doesn't quite work for me. However, it has some cool special effects and a strong voice cast, so it is by no means unwatchable and is - if not by a lot - better than DreamWorks's previous effort Bee Movie.
Happily, their next release - 2009's Monsters vs. Aliens looks great.
Rated PG (MPAA)
