Kung Fu Panda

Now I know. Among animation movies, there are excellent ones, there are average ones and then there are below-average ones. Of the last I will not speak much except that there aren't many in this category, and the few that are, are scattered across the globe. They continue to entertain the children, however do not find much admirers in the adult audience.

Kung Fu Panda undoubtedly falls under the first category of the Excellent Animation Movies.

There was a time when superheroes ruled the world. Much of the human population was captivated by their absolutely unreproducible adventures. Ordinary mortals could not even dream of approaching them, let alone imitating them, and the Universe lived in contentment that such successes are for the extraordinary lives. But that is far from the case now. The world has been educated that ordinary people are capable of far greater achievements than the superheroes! For example, a big, fat, flabby Panda can defeat the most feared snow leopard Tai Lung, who was not stopped even by the Furious Five masters of Kung Fu (Monkey, Mantis, Viper, Crane and Tigress)! It took the greatest Kung Fu master of all China to point out to him that his weaknesses are his greatest strengths.

Excellent movie, featuring the voice talents of Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, David Cross, to name a few.

A must watch.



  1. Haven't seen it yet. Haven't really seen anything except that stupid dog movie with Jenifer Aniston. I did not think much of it... Marley and Me, that was it. Right, memorable. And almost everyone loved it - so shoot me, I didn't... but I digress -

    Some of my earliest movie memories were animated classics - The Jungle Book, 101 Dalmatians, etc.

    Tanya sent me.

  2. I too had liked Kung fu Panda, the face expression of the Panda is awsome. .
    But isn't the movie a bit toooo old to suggest to anyone to watch? :D :D hihihi

  3. Mike: Thanks for visiting again. The Jungle Book is my favourite too.

    anupsar: The movie was released in 2008, so it isn't "too old". I haven't been watching new movies lately, so I can't write about them...
