Why's this movie here? The kung fu film genre has always flouted the physical limitations of the human body, either through super-specialized training or wires. So it’s surprising it took until 2008 for the genre to enter the mainstream animation realm—where literally anything is possible. This feel-good flick centers around Po, a dumpling and kung fu loving panda that accidentally wins a martial arts tournament and so becomes the Valley of Peace’s prophesied defender against an evil snow leopard. The other kung-fu students Tigress, Monkey, Mantis, Viper, and Crane are not pleased, but their red panda master encourages Po, helping him develop a style all his own that utilizes his tremendous gut. The plot follows the most obvious path to a happy ending, and even if it is a telegraphed story about an underdog beating the odds, the execution of the cliches is novel and delightful. And if watching a Jack-Black-voiced Panda skadoosh away the naysayers doesn’t make you feel good inside, then you should spend less time on the internet. .
