Relax, i'm an American - sheesh...at least that Chinese girl is hot.
1 March 2008 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

If there was ever a movie that i could say I was criticizing before i was really criticizing films, it would have to be the amazing panda adventure. this movie is really, really bad. it hardly hits with any emotional impact, it's rather a money maker. that's it. the only thing the people who made this movie wanted, was a quick buck.

anyways, let's review.

We have 10 year old Ryan who's taking his week-long trip to china to hang out with his dad, who researches the near extinct panda bear. we have Mr. Tyler (Ryan's dad) who is so caught up in his work he doesn't care about his son. we have chu, who is also in research with pandas, and he have his granddaughter, ling (take a moment to wipe the drool from your chin) the ever so hot Chinese girl that translates for Mr. Tyler when he converses with chu, and the other Chinese people.

Now thats all i'm gonna reveal to this crappy flick.

first of all, the acting is weak, and sometimes too strong, just like American beer compared to molson Canadian cold shots. the dialog makes Americans look like heroes and Chinese people look stupid, hence the lines - Ling: You are a Mormon! Ryan: i think you mean moron. - how stupid.

Just like Grizzly mountain, the scenery is awesome, and the rest is total poo-poo. the acting, the story lines, the dialog, it's bad. watch out for this one in discount bins on VHS, hence the time it came out.

5/10
