  • The movie might be preachy to some, but I think that Po's dad gave very good advice to his son There is no secret ingredient

      Po, the big clumsy panda, aspired to be a great kungfu warrior a seemingly impossible dream! Yet according to the wise Master Oogway, the universe had chosen Po to be the Dragon Warrior, despite protests and objections from Master Shifu and his five students. Tai Lung, a ferocious warrior, had escaped from a heavily guarded dungeon, vowing to return to the Jade Palace to seize the Dragon Scroll and claim the title of Dragon Warrior for himself.

      Master Shifu had to train Po fast, in order to defeat Tai Lung, and protect the palace and village from obliteration.

      Master Shifu,


      wise old soul that he was, trained Po differently from the way he trained his other students he had to use food as motivation as well as a training tool.

      Anyway, Po mastered the art of kungfu and defeated Tai Lung, thus saving the palace and the village from destruction.

      I watched this movie with my nephews and niece (3 to 8 years old).

      Never thought that I would laugh and giggle like them totally captivated by this bumbling panda with the ridiculous dreams! The most anyone would think that a panda could achieve in martial arts ...


      • would be wrestling, and not jumping and delivering sharp kicks! During his training sessions with Master Shifu, his moves were so slick.

        The movie might be preachy to some, but I think that Po’s dad gave very good advice to his son “There is no secret ingredient.

        To make something special, you just have to believe it is special.

        ” I enjoyed the last scene the most; after defeating Tai Lung, Po went to see Master Shifu, who was resting after his fight with Tai Lung.

        Po laid down to rest besides Master Shifu, trying not to talk

        or move a muscle.

        It wasn’t long before he told Shifu he wanted something to eat!

        Jack Black as Po was really great a big jovial panda, yet lovable and simply hilarious delivering wisecracks and wacky dialogue; however he does not really sound or act like a Chinese panda, more like an ABC (America Born Chinese).

        Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) sounded uptight and strict; but turned out to have a sense of humor, while Ian McShane projected a ferocious and stately Tai Lung.

        The rest of the cast did not create much of an impression.
