Synopsis


Kung Fu Panda
A clumsy panda bear becomes an unlikely kung fu hero when a treacherous enemy spreads chaos throughout the countryside in this animated martial arts adventure featuring the voices of Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, and Jackie Chan. On the surface, Po (voice of Black) may look like just another portly panda bear, but beneath his fur he bears the mark of the chosen one. By day, Po works faithfully in his family's noodle shop, but by night he dreams of becoming a true master of the martial arts. Now an ancient prophecy has come to pass, and Po realizes that he is the only one who can save his people from certain destruction. With time running short and malevolent snow leopard Tai Lung (Ian McShane ) closing in, Furious Five legends Tigress (Jolie), Crane (David Cross ), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Viper (Lucy Liu), Monkey (Chan), and their wise sensei, Master Shifu (Hoffman), all draw on their vast knowledge of fighting skills in order to transform a lumbering panda bear into a lethal fighting machine. Now, if the noble Po can master the martial arts and somehow transform his greatest weaknesses into his greatest strengths, he will fulfill his destiny as the hero who saved his people during their darkest hour. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A Great Animated Sequel and then 'almost some'

    If you like to fill your movie treasure chest with animated gems, then Kung Fu Panda 2 is more than just a worthy film to include. This edition with the new character box art is worthy to own despite some supplement flaws. To avoid spoilers, this outstanding sequel follows the original as Po uncovers more of his origin while he and the Furious Five face a new ruthless villain, Lord Shen. Now other than the movie being more emotionally and in a story aspect expansive from the first film, the movie looks flawless and beautiful in stunning HD as its culmination of 3-D, 2-D animation and scenes with Chinese Shadow puppetry will illuminate your television with artistry and spectacle. Sound quality is exceptionally incredible from the BluRay format so your ears will be pleased. Now, you'll get both DVD and BluRay within this pack, but since it is included with a Digital Copy, you will be somewhat disappointed. Prior to this, an iTunes copy was in the previous edition so instead of an HD iTunes copy to update the combo pack, buyers will receive a Ultraviolet redemption code. Another minor inconvenience, the DVD is also a digital copy disc for iTunes so don't try to redeem it from the code included, its not compatible. Regardless, Kung Fu Panda 2 in this new copy is still highly recommendable to own. Fans of the series and casual movie consumers will be enthralled by the BluRay format and its supplements.

    I wasn't entirely sure how I would feel about this movie, but since I had a free promo code, I figured I would get it! I am not typically a fan of Jack Black but I had heard good things about this movie. This movie was hilarious! As I said before, I had no expectations for it, so that most likely helped. It was a great comedy mixed with emotion and action, playing to all ages. Jack Black is the perfect actor to play Po. Po is a character that everyone can relate to as he laughs at himself, has misadventures, and dreams of what he wants. The character is actually developed very well, something that cannot be said about a lot of movies. I also really like the other two main characters played by Dustin Hoffman and Ian McShane as the other good and bad guys. I really like the landscaping and visual effects of this movie. The settings in China are so beautiful with the mountains and bodies of water.

    A Striking & Hilarious Original Animated Effort

    Jack Black is perfect for this type of thing-he brought his trademark comedic voice as well as the influence of his persona being imposed on Po-it meshed to make a character that was not only believable and likeable, but one that we could watch all day-the story hit all the basic points of an animated message film, but it was the characters of Po and Master Shifu, who was also fully inhibited by Dustin Hoffman, that made this movie so much fun to watch. The other characters didnt seem to be worth any time, especially the Furious Five, with such an impressive cast, not much was given for them to say or do, their action scenes were amazing to watch on the big screen though and all in all a great animated film.

    I already owned the movie on DVD. I purchased it due to a sale and have slowly been upgrading and replacing DVD movies I have. The visual presentation is slightly improved over the DVD, which is not bad do to the up-scaling of modern Blu-ray players. The sound, however, is definitely more rich and dynamic with a better LFE channel than the DVD. It will play very nicely on a capable sound system, with those having better performing subwoofers getting the most bang for their buck. The movie itself is excellent with a great story and many themes for kids and adults alike. A must own if it is not a part of your movie library.

    Only good CGI by Dreamworks worth anything

    Posted

    What an original movie and pleasant surprise!! I am not a big Dreamworks CGI fan. Yeah Shrek is popular but the laughs are based on 3rd grade humor and does not stand a chance to Bugs Life, Monsters Inc, and Finding Nemo. Kung Fu Panda is really a great movie and I loved the character development of this movie, especially the facial expressions of the master. I would never have guessed this was a Dreamworks movie with their awful CGI movies like Bee Movie, all Shrek movies, Antz, and Shark Tale. For example, Antz vs Bugs Life. Which is better? Dreamworks CGI movies are terrible. Kung Fu Panda is so good that it redeems Dreamworks, which I never thought would happen. KUNG FU PANDA kicks butt!!!!

    I hate to be one of those who remark on a film's "message," but I thought Po's adventure and journey of discovery showed how its important to believe in yourself and not give up on your dreams. And like I said, the message was SHOWN and not PREACHED over and over like some mindless animated features do when the writers are lazy and the producers underestimate the intelligence and maturity of the viewing audience. Great movie and hilarious. Buckets of great extras too!

    One Word ... Jack Black

    Initially, when I heard about this film, I didn't think that I would enjoy it as much as I did. It has all of the humor that you would expect from a Dreamworks movie as well as the action that you would need to satisfy the adults going to the film. While it is geared towards little kids, it has a great message about living up to your expectations and not letting fear stand in the way of who you can become. You will not be disappointed in viewing this movie multiple times.

    One of my favorite movies!

    Thiis movie is fantastic. At first, for me it was one of those movies where you don't really pay attention to the trailer. A "wait until it comes out on DVD" movie. But then I saw it and it was great! It's so witty and hillarious! You'll fall in love with the characters (Master Ooogway is my favorite). It has a famous cast including Angelina Jolie and Jack Black as the main character. They're such great actors that you don't even link the character to them, which I was worried about. The animation is perfect and the plot is extremely creative. I can watch this movie over and over - it's become one of my favorites!
