    I saw this today with the kids. Good, solid movie and beautiful to look at. I wanted to see it at the iMax but didn't feel like spending close to $50 on tickets.

    cool was planning to see it sometime over the weekend it looked like something i would enjoy watching judging from the trailers.

    i didnt realize it was out today i thought it was next week since zohan is out today. i think this is the first summer weekend when two major (at least marketed) movies are coming out on the same weekend. all the other weekends there was really only one major release out.

    I just had a look at the trailer. It appears they've left out the deadly form of Duck style Kung Fu.

    Did your kids cry? My 4 1/2 year old son did when he thought the kung fu master was dead near the end. Luckily we stayed till the very end of the credits. They show him eating dumplings with the panda.

    I'm posting this from the drive in. Just saw it and it was alright. Kids liked it. Now we're waiting for the second feature, Indiana jones. Oh and I'm warnings the end of zohan on the other scren betwen movies. It looks stupid and so far the dialogue is horrible.

    I really want to watch the movie, the main Villian is a Snow leopard, and that is great.

    No tears that I could detect; my 6-YO sitting next to me covered her face when Tai Lung first sprung into action. :eek:

    Saw it with my grandkids yesterday. Was a pretty good movie overall only drawback to it is that my grandkids have now picked up another annoying word (Skidoosh) that they won't stop using in everything. LOL

    I saw the movie today (Sunday) with my 5 year old daughter , and she loved it . So much , that on the way home I had to stop and buy the game for her on 360 . The game is actually pretty cool as well . The movie was fun , it seemed a bit short though . I would definitely recommend this to anyone , young or old .

    Hit the Premium Outlets yesterday and followed up with Kung Fu Panda. I enjoyed it. Laughed a lot.

    It was a perfect role for Jack Black. He deserves an award if they give awards for being the voice of an animated animal.

    Took the daughters last night. Both loved it and a fat guy ends up being the hero, so I enjoyed it too.

    The animation is extremely well done, though on the opening sequence, I thought I had stumbled in to a Samurai Jack movie. :)

    Highly recommended for kids, though a lot of teenagers and adults were in our theater.

    5 stars. :eek: possibly better than the Shreks.
    I did, when:
    the OLD master died... I was trying NOT to let my girls see me crying...

    Also, I said "whoa" and "Cool!" so many times when the snow leopard bad guy did so many FAST and AGILE things to break out! :eek:

    :cool: don't click above if you don't want to know what happens
