|06.13.08||Cinemark Pflugerville|| Yay for offsite training getting out for an early Friday! I don't know why this is the movie I wound up seeing with my extra time but who cares... I wanted to see it and heard it was good from co-workers (granted, they either have kids or have the movie-going mentality of a kid).|
I actually liked it quite a bit. I liked how the crane, tiger, mantis, viper, and monkey were actually in the movie rather than just a set-up joke used in the trailer but actually could've used a little more of them. The mantis gets a little shafted due to his size but for the rest of them it was pretty damn sweet to actually see anthropomorphic animals do their respective kung fu styles. Would've been cool to see them shown off a bit more but what are you gonna do... you can't exactly have bloody duels with deathblows in a children's animated romp.
It was also funny but I say that as a fan of Jack Black. I'd imagine that people not into his shtick would hate him here because of said shtick.
Anyways... fun times.
