Kung Fu Panda Review

- Gorgeously animated in a wonderfully designed setting
- The humor is, thankfully, timeless and universal instead of based largely on pop culture references like many of the previous Dreamworks CGI movies (the Shreks, Shark Tale, Bee Movie, Madagascar)
- Great voice work from a truly impressive assemblage of talent (Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Ian McShane, David Cross, Michael Clarke Duncan, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogan and Lucy Liu)
- Beautiful score

- By-the-numbers and uncompelling story
- Some of the impressive voice acting cast is criminally underused, especially Jackie Chan and Seth Rogan

- Not the best animated movie you'll ever see but Kung Fu Panda is definitely funny and beautiful to look at.

Overall Score: 7/10
