KUNG FU PANDA

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

SEVEN, Satur­day, 7pm, PG ( 2008)

This high- con­cept en­try is one of the finest in the com­puter- an­i­mated genre. Jack Black show­cases his goofy charm as the voice of sweet but un­gainly panda Po ( above). Po’s fan­tasy of be­com­ing a mar­tial arts war­rior comes true when a wise elder anoints him as the “Dragon War­rior” – the king­dom’s cho­sen one. Un­der the tute­lage of his gruff mas­ter, Shifu ( Dustin Hoff­man), Po takes the ten­ta­tive steps to be­com­ing a kung fu hero, train­ing for bat­tle against moun­tain cat Tai Lung ( Ian McShane). With the mix of warmth, en­ergy and ac­tion on of­fer, this is a knock­out com­bi­na­tion.
