Tonight, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog and [livejournal.com profile] shakati and I went to see Kung Fu Panda, the latest Dreamworks effort. ([livejournal.com profile] pmat, unfortunately, was feeling subpar due to allergies and decided to stay home.)

During the first few scenes, I thought, "Oh no, please, not a Forbidden Kingdom retread with animated animals!"

Fortunately, it wasn't. It was, in some ways, much better than Forbidden Kingdom. The kung fu was about the same (which is impressive, considering that all of the characters in Kung Fu Panda are animated non-human animals). But this movie was better written, and better plotted, than Forbidden Kingdom,and contains some genuine, well-expressed bits of real world wisdom as well. [livejournal.com profile] esrblog thought it was comparable in some ways to The Incredibles, though not *quite* as good, and I agree.

If you loved The Incredibles, and kung fu movies don't totally alienate you, go see Kung Fu Panda. It packs a lot of fun, and a little bit of wisdom, into its 88-minute running time. As the ads say, "Prepare for awesomeness."

And keep your eyes peeled for the chopstick duel. Rest assured, when you see the movie, you'll know exactly what I mean.
