I thought this movie wasn't very good. Why does Jack Black have to have the same personality as a panda that he has in all his other movies. Fat jokes aren't funny for him anymore. The animation was awesome, but other than that, the movie didn't have that much going for it.
I took my 3 granddaughters to see this. The oldest didn't like it but then she is 13 and girls at that age don't like much except 13 year old boys! The 6 year old has been kung-fuing everyone since. I loved it.
It was a good movie because he had story and comedy and it even had a sliver of heart.
Though I still think DreamWorks and Fox have a way to go before they get that heart that Disney has in their animated films. They tend to ace everything but heart when they make their films.
But I enjoyed it and the length, that's important, was perfect. Comedies need to learn for that. 2 hour comedies do NOT work...or for the most part don't. it seems that once a comedy surpasses the Hour and half mark it gets dull.
Very, very enjoyable film.
That said, I kinda miss cartoon voices like the ones Mel Blanc came up with. "The Simpsons" is a good example of what I'm getting at. Voices that you don't readily recognize as the star behind it.
Still. An easily recommendable film.
