Critic Reviews for Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Furious Five

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (11)

Director Nesher has a way of reducing each confrontation to its two-dimensional essence, and he's not helped by a swampy, sentimental musical score.

Restrained direction and the cast's strong, disciplined performances keep it from falling into soap-opera territory.

The Secrets twines coming-out, coming-of-age and coming-to-terms-with-Orthodoxy in a way that diminishes all three -- and dilutes its message with clichés.

There is pain and empowerment in The Secrets as difficult choices are made. There are also gaps, but emotionally moving performances by Ardant, Bukstein and Shtamler in particular, keep you with this small but provocative film until the end.

In some ways, it is a traditional narrative. But it is more. It is gently and powerfully acted.

The Secrets belongs in a mini-tradition of involving films that limn the border where spiritual and sexual awakenings collide and entwine.

Audience Reviews for Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Furious Five

½

Of course, being a Kung Fu Panda fan, I would love this regardless of what anyone else would say. But its a great short animation, with Po taking on a new generation of students and teaching the basics with the anecdotes of the Furious Five.

Not much to say, but great animation, a bit of humor, but its really aimed for the kiddies, but enjoyable an 25 mins.

a lame attempt to squeeze extra cash out from the film. Seth Rogen didn't even lend his voice, but Jack Black did... strange.
