Goofs

When Oogway fights with General Kai face to face in the Spirit World, he wrote the Chinese character Chi (Pinyin is Qi4) and pushed it to attack Kai. Since the audience (and General Kai) can see this Chinese character in the right way, that means Oogway wrote this Chinese character in the opposite way (like in a mirror), which is awkward. Is Oogway really considerate?

It could be that the shot was added flipped left to right. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Oogway: Inner peace... inner peace.
[a flower petal falls on his nose]
Oogway: Itchy nose...

Crazy Credits

Instead of the usual Dreamworks SKG opening with the little boy fishing from a crescent moon in the sky, Po climbs a huge staircase, jumps onto the crescent, and fishes from there. See more »

User Reviews

 
Sublime animated picture.
9 March 2016 | by icheckmymailboxSee all my reviews

The Good Stuff (in order of awesomeness)

1. Superb animation and various art styles used. Hits are emphasized well with excellent sound design and voice acting. Good action.

2. Jokes are (mostly) good, made me laugh out loud multiple times.

3. The plot and pacing is pretty good and character development is adequate.

The Bad Stuff (in order of amplitude)

1. Antagonist is not really memorable with vanilla personality and motivation.

2. Film is obviously meant for a young-ish audience and contains some irritating slapstick and bad jokes.

3. 99% of Panda characters are completely forgettable.

Should you watch it: Probably, yes. I can't stress enough how good some of the visuals are.
