An entertaining celebration of great virtues
10 November 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This short animation is about Master Po teaching Kung Fu to a group of young bunnies.

I am positively surprised by this short. It tells the story of each of the Furious Five, and a virtue that each has learned through Kung Fu. Each story is fun and inspiring in a unique way. It teaches great virtues of human beings in an entertaining way, without being preachy.

The animation is great, especially the bunnies who are so cute and cuddly! I am also impressed that all the Chinese characters in the film are all correct. Usually Chinese characters in animations are simply jumbled up strokes.

There is a lot of positivity in "Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Furious Five". I really enjoyed watching it.
