Well, for a kiddie animation spectacle I'd give it more than a passing grade.

Kung Fu Panda is pretty much like it sounds.

Kung Fu Panda is not as much fun as Kung Fu Hustle, but it's much better than Kung Pow: Enter the Fist.
December 7, 2014
There's something about the look of Kung Fu Panda that is so novel and pleasing. Perhaps it's just that we haven't seen this vintage, Far East world in a computer-animated movie before.

Some of it just seems silly, which is fine for a family movie, of course, but there's silly and then there's silly. Kung Fu Panda is silly.

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).
November 22, 2013
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.

May 15, 2012
An energetic and surprisingly colorful family adventure tale that trumps formula through sheer force of personality.
November 16, 2011
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.

July 6, 2010
Loony Toons slapstick madness combines with martial arts spectacle to give way to some wonderfully funny scenes.

July 6, 2010
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
November 21, 2008
Kung Fu Panda puts most other recent action movies to shame with its astonishingly beautiful, fluid, fast, clean use of movement and space.

Parental Content Review
November 10, 2008
A witty, visually interesting and sweet comedy that works in pretty much all departments.
