Kungfu Panda's a blast. I just saw it today with a bunch of aikido mates and we all enjoyed it hugely. Was laughing out loud through much of the movie with all the antics of the characters.
It's got a fairly predictable plot (and i'm not going to say anymore about it so no spoilers here) but so well executed it's a joy to watch. I really like the fight/training sequences and my favourite sequence has to be when the choosing of the next Dragon Warrier is on and the hero is trying to get into watch the proceedings.
The fight sequences often are to me like the martial arts movies I've seen with characters swooping from tree to roof at impossible distances etc. With animation it can be done far more smoothly and plausibly in an imagined world than with real life actors and props. It's why i think I actually prefer this done in animation than in real life movies. Kinda like a Platonic ideal.
