Who says that fat guy can’t jump? Not you ey!? Well never mind because trust me, somebody did.
Well, if any of you guys and gals out there have ever seen the TV weight management program titled The Biggest Loser, then I’ll bet that you’ll change your mind.
When this movie were aired in the big screen in 2008, i did not manage to watch any of the teaser nor the trailer before I went to the cinema, so when the show started, I was puzzled, the first 5 - 10 minutes introduction of the movie seems like it’s not done in 3D animation but the traditional Cartoon Network toon series instead. I was discouraged...mmm... ok, maybe discourage was not the right word but i felt like the movie was not as I expected, I felt down a bit but then when the introduction past, I was relieved, it is in modern 3D animation.
The panda was, in my opinion, made around Jack Black’s character and believes me when I say this, that guy is a really funny dude.
The story circles around this panda figure who were stuck in his daily life helping his dad in their noodle shop but deep inside he aspires to be a legendary kung fu figure. He worship the town champion called the Furious Five. Yes! Worship! J He even has their toy figurines in collection.
As the story goes, the panda simply named Po in the movie (funny that all other character was simply named as who they are, eg: monkey, Mantis, Tigress, Crane and hmmm...ouch! I didn’t remember the snake guy name... :P) was chosen to be the Dragon Warrior, the chosen one to fend all evil in this world throwing everyone’s expectation way off, even his sifu didn’t believe that he should be the chosen one.
When words that he was chosen as the dragon warrior got out and reached a heavily guarded prison (which by the way only holds one prisoner. J hey! It’s a cartoon, who cares about common sense), the mighty prisoner Tai Lung, who was the Hamster sifu’s adopted son which was brought up believing that he is the Dragon Warrior and then only to be denied the only thing that he grows up believing in by the Master sifu Oogway (he’s a tortoise anyway), he felt that he have to challenge this newly celebrated Dragon Warrior, it’s that kung fu master’s complex syndrome I guess, everybody just have to challenge everybody just to prove that they’re better.
Tai Lung broke out of prison in a very magnificent way, the graphic was really excellent and the movement is something that put every audience to awe (In fact, the graphic was excellent throughout the whole movie).
The movie is really entertaining, funny, an eye candy and suitable for all adults and children.
The movie presentation is good and you should be ashamed of yourself if you did not see it yet, my advice, get the DVD (oh! It’s already in Bluray too) and prepare to be entertained.
