Join this Kung Fu adventure when a group of very clever personalities also known as the students of the Tiger Academy, as they fearlessly defeat Master Sifu's mortal enemy, Slash. Slash is out to obtain a tablet that he hopes will give him the world at his fingertips. All seems to be lost until Fu, a talented chef and not to mention rabbit, steps into the picture. Fu was lucky enough to receive all of Master Sifu's Kung Fu Mastery and power upon his death. Will the transfer of his powers onto Fu the rabbit be enough to save the Kung Fu Academy as well as the world?
Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit is a delightful children's movie that my boys enjoyed. They love anything full of action and this movie fit the bill.The movie is 89 minutes in length so it kept us all entertained and it is a movie that the whole family can enjoy together. Upon watching the movie, I started hearing familiar voices such as Tom Arnold (Master Sifu) and John Heder does a great job as the voice of Fu the rabbit. Last but not least Michael Clarke Duncan as Slash. Fu is a nice, sweet unassuming rabbit that steps in to save the day and save it he does.
Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit is a fun movie that I'm sure your children will enjoy. It is also a Dove Foundation approved movie so you don't have to worry about the language or the action scenes. Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit will be released on DVD, Digital Download and Video on Demand September 24 for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
Disclosure** I received this as part of the ENM Network for free for my honest review.
Of course with its budget of roughly 12-mil and a 2013 direct-to-dvd release here in the States by Lions Gate that pretty much failed to register so much as a blip on the population’s collective radar, it’s pretty safe to say Jeffery Katzenberg and the rest of DreamWorks didn’t lose too much sleep over the concept of lost revenue to Kung Fu Rabbit.
It should be noted however that the production caused a bit more of a stir abroad, having been produced in China and playing on the slant of better cultural authenticity and more spectacular martial arts than the Panda film from the US, Kung Fu Rabbit actually earned itself a theatrical run in several markets abroad including both Asian and European.
Interestingly, and what is apparently commonplace, when dubbed into English, not only did the film receive a new cast but many editorial changes as well, apparent when looking at a translation even of things as simple as the character’s names.Read more ›
I really didn't care for the fact that this was too much like a Kung Fu Panda ripoff. It honestly doesn't bother me. The director, Sun Yijun, stated that he had no intention to do so and honestly didn't know what those acquisitions were about. The reason I don't believe this is because of the vast similarities between the two. For one, Po and Tu's fighting style are extremely similar -being impervious to direct attacks because of their 'fat.' Both Shifu's 'daughters' were not only not biologically related -red panda/tiger and monkey/cat- but were both kung fu masters who were not the heroes in the end, but rather stepping stones for the real hero. Also, this movie reminded me of a 'Legends of Awesomeness' special called 'Enter the Dragon' involving something called the Hero's Ki -or Chi, however you want to spell it.
I could go on and on about the similarities but anyone who has seen the two movies will know it for themselves without being told.Read more ›
