When the kids are happy and I get to watch a Jack Black kung fu movie, that's good enough for me.

The animation work is dazzling; it's lovingly detailed without being overdone (particularly the opening sequence, which is hand-drawn and looks like prints struck from ancient woodblocks).

Supporting characters (including Jolie, who is wasted as a tiger) are pallid, and the fight scenes disproportionately long, as if the filmmakers figure the young boys most likely to see Panda are just as action-happy as their dads.

A decent bridge before the wonder of WALL-E, Kung Fu Panda will thrill kids and fight nuts alike. Shame the big names are underused and there's nothing particularly new.

Kung Fu Panda is hugely entertaining, gorgeously animated and expertly cast, with Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman doing some of their best work in recent memory (no joke).

This beautifully designed, cherry blossom-hued cartoon is brighter, breezier and bouncier than most.

Shared Darkness

An energetic and surprisingly colorful family adventure tale that trumps formula through sheer force of personality.

As the credits roll, the film's many flaws come sharply into focus. But while it lasts, Kung-Fu Panda is something of a guilty treat.

Kung Fu Panda is a colourful, extremely enjoyable if workmanlike animated romp.

Boston Phoenix

The thin script (light on length and surprise, heavy on tike-pleasing jokes and action) gives the ancillary anthropomorphized animals so little to say, you'll hardly recognize Angelina Jolie's Tigress or even Jackie Chan's Monkey.

A vast improvement over such previous DreamWorks dreck as Shark Tale and the Shrek flicks

Kung Fu Panda puts most other recent action movies to shame with its astonishingly beautiful, fluid, fast, clean use of movement and space.

A witty, visually interesting and sweet comedy that works in pretty much all departments.

...relies on the sounds of its voice cast and the brilliance of its CGI animation to help it succeed.

Manages to entertain and dazzle, and parents won't beat themselves up for sitting through it, although what it teaches could fit on a fortune cookie.

It is as if the spirit of recent Zhang Yimou spectaculars have informed this warm and very likable Hollywood fare.

It's still a bit patchy in terms of its pace, and it's awfully violent for a PG movie, but it also features the best fight sequences the animated world, or any other world, has ever seen.
