Kung Fu Panda

Any love here for Kung Fu Panda? I must say it's pretty well done and quite enjoyable to watch, even from an adult standpoint.

I adored it. I thought it was a lot of fun, even for an old fogey like me.

Re: Kung Fu Panda

It was a pretty good film. One nice thing - the celebrity voices did not distract me as they usually do and I loved the way they depicted China. It looks like they did their homework.

Re: Kung Fu Panda

Has there been any hint of a followup to it? Surely if "Madagascar" and "Ice Age" get more outings, this one would, right?

Re: Kung Fu Panda

I watched this on an eleven hour flight from Japan to the U.S.

It was okay, better than I expected. it's a nice piece of fluff, meaning it's not on the same level as WALL-E (IMO best animated movie in a whille)

Good characters, and the kung-fu was actually exciting, loved the scene of the main bad guy escaping from the jail, that was a cool action scene.......not only for a kid movie, but for any movie

IIRC, there was a piece on comingsoon.net that they're looking at doing a KFP 2...

Re: Kung Fu Panda

I didn't particularly look forward to this flick, but found myself really loving it. It wasn't just a pretty CGI kids story, it was actually a good kung fu action story with a real villain and real action. Hell, even Jack Black wasn't that annoying. And the fight scenes were GREAT.

I love this movie. Top notch animation and story. I really wouldn't mind watching it again or seeing a sequel soon.

I had to ask someone who was voicing whom. That's quite a feat because I usually have no trouble picking out voices. I hope there is a sequel. I'd watch it.

I enjoyed it. Lucy Liu said in an interview that all of Viper's moves were copyrighted, because no one had ever animated a snake in such a way before.

Re: Kung Fu Panda

Ive been avoiding Dreamworks cgi flicks after Madagascar. I really didnt care for that film. Is this anything like that? (you know, were you can tell from the first frame its a DW film b/c of the pop culture references, characters' personalities defined by the big star voices & the story being second to trying to be hip.)
