Movie Review: Kung Fu Panda

During the past two years, I have been shunning animated movies (particluarly, of the 3D variety) because it feels like the new ones do not provide anything new to the table.

Good thing, the animated movie Kung Fu Panda does not disappoint.

The movie is about Po the Panda, who dreams to be one of the great kung fu masters. He was picked by the head kung fu master as the dragon master (the chosen one, so to speak) to fight their village's greatest enemy. Other kung fu greats bristled at the idea, since Panda had no kung fu skills whatsoever.

The movie has awesome graphics from start to finish. The plot is solid, and the there is light humor throughout the film. The voice actors (led by Jack Black) did a superb job in giving life to the animated characters. Over-all, it is such a good film that you will forget that you are watching an animated movie.

Needles to say, Kung Fu Panda is a must-see summer movie.
