Kung Fu Panda

Kung Fu Panda ★★★½

With its handsome animation, lively sense of humor, and inspired voice cast, "Kung Fu Panda" is a solid family film. The story of a panda who is thrust into the role of famed dragon warrior, the film is at its best when it embraces its clever and funny side provided by Jack Black's Po. Too often, though, the animated adventure focuses on kung fu-fighting hijinks, animal-inspired mayhem, and dog-eared themes. These are not necessarily negative qualities, but they keep the film mired in the ordinary. Still, "Kung Fu Panda" is a watchable, upbeat, and fast moving experience that is built to satisfy most audiences.
