Briefs: OA Suggestion November 14, 2008
What’s even better than Jack Black as the voice of Po the panda in the animated comedy “Kung Fu Panda,” is the characters of the Furious Five.
Dreamworks developed a spectacular collection of kung fu fighting friends who work together to bring down bad guys. There is Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper, Monkey and their master, Shifu. And they definitely have each other’s backs.
As an adult (ahem), I don’t typically rent PG rated films for kids. However, from the trailers, “Kung Fu Panda” looked funny, and how could it not be with Black and Dustin Hoffman as some of the voices.
It wound up being a rather delightful film I think parents, kids and random adults like me can enjoy.
It’s funny, sweet and action–packed.
Beware: After watching it, you will be hungry for noodles and dumplings. I’m just saying.
