From noodles to Kung Fu

-A A +A

Po, a rather lazy, oversized panda, is destined to follow in his father’s footsteps as the next in a bloodline of noodle makers in China.

Little does his father know that Po’s true passion lies not in the hot bowls of “secret ingredient soup,” but in the ancient art of Kung Fu.

One day when a Kung Fu Master, Oogway, is to announce who will be the Dragon Warrior to protect their city from the evil Tai Lung, Po sneaks out of his father’s shop to check out the action. He never suspects that his innocent attendance at the Dragon Warrior ceremony is about change his life, and the future of China, forever.

Let me start off by saying I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this movie. I kind of went into the theater with fairly low expectations after hearing about the goofy plot line of this movie.

I’ll admit, the story line was clich and dragged on at times. It was fairly easy to predict what was going to happen during the movie, but honestly the underlying pizzazz of this movie lies not in the storyline, but in its characters.
