    "I was fully expecting to enjoy the action sequences in Kung Fu Hustle, but I was prepared to laugh so hard. This is such a well-rounded kung fu movie. It has a little bit of something for everyone... but mostly for people who love watching martial arts movies!"

    "This movie was silly but I found that to take away from what could have been a great plot. It was a little too amateur for me."

    "Kung Fu Panda is beautifully rendered, dazzling piece of animation. The story is not particularly clever or interesting but Jack Black is great and the movie is pure eye candy. Wonderful visuals."

    "After watching Magnificent Bodyguards I couldn't help but feel underwhelmed with the production of this film. There are some great scenes in this movie featuring Kung fu and the legendary Jackie Chan, however, the movie falls short in the originality department and honestly fails to impress since most of its scenes have been done in the past. If you're looking for an original Kung Fu movie, this is one the one. "
