Synopsis; It’s the story about a lazy, irreverent slacker panda, named Po, who is the biggest fan of Kung Fu around…which doesn’t exactly come in handy while working every day in his family’s noodle shop. Unexpectedly chosen to fulfill an ancient prophecy, Po’s dreams become reality when he joins the world of Kung Fu and studies alongside his idols, the legendary Furious Five — Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey — under the leadership of their guru, Master Shifu. But before they know it, the vengeful and treacherous snow leopard Tai Lung is headed their way, and it’s up to Po to defend everyone from the oncoming threat. Can he turn his dreams of becoming a Kung Fu master into reality? Po puts his heart – and his girth – into the task, and the unlikely hero ultimately finds that his greatest weaknesses turn out to be his greatest strengths.
Watch Kung Fu Panda Full Movie: When you watch Kung Fu Panda you can’t help but wonder: why wasn’t this done before? Kung fu and CGI make a terrific mix in this entertaining tale of a clumsy fat panda who becomes a true kung fu master.
Watch Kung Fu Panda Full Movie: The story in short: panda bear Po (voiced by Jack Black) is a big kung fu fan. He has all the action figures of his idols, Master Tigress, Viper, Tigress, Monkey and Mantis – also known as the Furious Five, and dreams of one day becoming a kung fu master himself. In the meantime he sells noodles. When evil leopard Tai Lung (Ian McShane) escapes from prison a Dragonwarrior is chosen to defeat him. Yes, our reluctant hero Po turns out to be the one! He gets a kung fu training from Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), who – after a few disastrous attempts – discovers that the only way to teach Po real kung fu is to lure him with food. But will Po be strong enough to beat Tai Lung?
Watch Kung Fu Panda Full Movie: Kung Fu Panda doesn’t start with a bang. The first laughs are results from the slapstick humour. Po is a lovable creature and everyone can relate to a person who dreams of the impossible. When Tai Lung escapes you’re really into the story. This particular scene is pretty spectacular. It takes place in a dark cave and the way Tai Lung jumps around really gives you the impression that he’s an enemy to be reckoned with.
Watch Kung Fu Panda Full Movie: What also works in the movie is the chemistry between Po (Jack Black) and Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman). The latter easily steals the show as the grumpy kung fu master who doesn’t believe in his mission to guide Po. The scene in which Shifu has a food fight with Po is an instant classic. There’s also a great action scene in which Tigress, Mantis and the others try to stop evil Tai Lung. They fail, of course…
Watch Kung Fu Panda Full Movie: And the down side? There aren’t that many bad things in Kung Fu Panda. Hoffman and Black make the movie. The role of Tigress (Angelina Jolie) could have been done by many other voice actresses. Jackie Chan (Viper) only has three or four lines and that’s a shame. The final fight is – at some moments – rather violent. That can scare away some of the younger (3-6 year old) kids.
Watch Kung Fu Panda Full Movie: Dreamworks wants to turn Kung Fu Panda into a Shrek like franchise. They’re right. There’s enough material in here to make at least two more sequels. And CGI animated kung fu kicks really work on the big screen! So let them make a Kung Fu Panda 2. As long as they keep Dustin Hoffman as Master Shifu in the story!
