Now I went on my iPad and did all the steps and hit play and said it was invalid. What!?
BUT then I realized you need AMAZON APP in order to watch. So the app is free and then boom. Problem solved.
So for people bashing this, try downloading the app and see if it helps. Worked for me.
I was laughing, smiling, and guffawing at Po, the main protagonist (voiced by Jack Black) and his misadventures at becoming a Kung Fu expert. This was certainly a flawed character, one that a lot of people can relate to because he dreams, he's funny, and he can laugh at himself. Also, the story was pretty clear and easy to follow because the storytelling was well crafted, and the animation was paired well with characters brought vividly to life by some of the most famous names in Hollywood.
Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman are downright excellent as the main characters, and Ian McShane as the bad dude gave it the right fearful presence. Other big name stars don't shine as much, but that's because their roles are rather limited in the film. But that's still okay because the animators should be given equal credit (if not more) for delivering the funny, action and heart elements of this movie in an effective, amazing and (I've got to use this) AWESOME manner. Visually, this movie is stunning (notice all those scenic shots of the Chinese mountains, bodies of water, and the bridge scene; not to mention the action animation version of "The Matrix" with slow-mo)... simply a delight to watch.
It's clear that Dreamworks has gotten back in the animation game with Kung Fu Panda, after slight ho-hums in Shrek 3 and Bee Movie (call me crazy, but I liked Over The Hedge more than those two).Read more ›
At first, my dread seemed confirmed. Poor Dustin Hoffman mangles Chinese names without mercy - so much so that James Hong, Lucy Liu and Jackie Chan have to deliberately mispronounce stuff just to match what he says.
But once the movie got rolling, I found myself grinning from ear to ear in sheer delight. Yes, it's true, Dreamworks can't compete with Pixar's technology, but they make up for it with beautiful graphic design, sheer wit and - of course - those hilariously quivering "Scrat Eyes". What's more, the animators somehow manage to make Kung Fu battles between cartoons both exciting and enjoyable - every bit the match of live action fights (which nowadays are nothing more than CGI with faces pasted on).
However, the most remarkable thing about this film is how faithful it is to Chinese culture - family dynamics, Buddhist philosophy, values, and even martial arts - this film simply HAS to have been written by Chinese. There is never a moment where it strains to "score points" with political correctness. Its characters are never tediously noble "anti-stereotypes", but are instead lovingly depicted with all their flaws intact while uniquely Chinese messages are delicately hidden within a plot crammed with excitement and laughter.Read more ›
Noodle eating lazy panda
Who should be serving noodles faster
But dreams that he's a kung-fu master
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):
1. Noodle eating lazy panda, Po (Jack Black) dreams of becoming a kung-fu master.
2. He's really a waiter at the family noodle shop
3. A new Dragon Master is about to be named to battle the fearsome Tai Lung (Ian McShane), just in case he succeeds in breaking out of his escape-proof prison
4. The front runners for the job are the members of the "Furious Five" - Master Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Master Crane (David Cross), Master Mantis (Seth Rogen), Master Viper (Lucy Liu) and master Monkey (Jackie Chan)
5. Po drops in on the ceremony, causing an upset
6. The soup hits the fan when Tai Lung escapes
7. Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) has to make a martial arts master out of a panda bear, and fast!
8. With the right motivation, Po learns the secret of the sacred Dragon scroll
9. Crouching Leopard meets Lazy Panda with hidden Dragon
10. Exciting fight scenes ensue
Take the kids out for a treat
This kung fu cartoon's really neat
Despite his metabolic rate
This panda is a heavyweight
This is a spectacular animated action film for all ages. Big name actors, non-stop action and with a moral to the story to boot. Who could ask for more?
We COULD ask for a sequel!
