Excellent movie - sure. Animation - check, good voice over - check, nice martial art set pieces - check, jack black excellent - check. But the best animated movie of this year? Hold up. And how many lines did Jackie Chan have?
Watch this for sure, watch it in IMAX. But.... Wait for Pixar's Wall-E. Watch that (it rocks bigtime). Then rent The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 1 and 2, The Iron Giant, The Lion King, Aladdin, Shrek, Beauty and the beast.
Then make your judgments, compare these movies. After all that, come back and read this review once again.
This review is not only perturbing in it's controlled but still effusive praise of the movie, but also the ridiculous claim that, "no one beats DreamWorks in computer animation." Who is this guy? Has he never seen a Pixar movie? This reminds of that fake reviewer who one of the studios used for fake superlatives to put on their posters of A knight's tale and Deuce Bigalow. Who are you Mr. Schneeberger, if that is your real name?
I dont know why This country China is being so overhyped. They have done nothing original. Whatever they have they copied from India. Buddhism, Kung-fu.....their entire beggar culture was given by us INdians. They are not so intelligent also. Unlike Indians legendary Software Skills, The Chinese provide only Cheap labor. They are not good at english also. Even their illiterate president cannot speak english. Why then does the world hype up this stupid country is a riddle....
