||An original screenplay
||An obese panda with a dream of becoming a kung fu master is accidentally chosen to be the “dragon warrior”, and as a result he must face an evil snow leopard, only saving the village if he is victorius in mortal combat.
||Many Kung fu battles during training and in the final climax, as well as scenes of cartoon violence as the other kung fu experts face up to the villain.
||I expect that young children might like this since they would probably readily accept the differences in the animals, typically the fact that the panda’s dad is a goose. Each of the kung fu animals is apparently the style of a kung fu. The film took 4 years to make and cost an eye watering $130,000,000. It has been followed by two sequels. But I did not like it much.
