Trivia

  • The Kung Fu and Wuxia convention, where attacks on the correct nerve and Chi points can cause paralysis and other effects, is adopted, although it is not explained in the movie, and the jade figurine topped sticks on the shell worn on the imprisoned Tai Lung are positioned at the traditional Chi energy points of the body. The sticks are intended to keep the villain from accessing the power from those points, which is why he was first concerned about removing them before attempting to break his chains.

Goofs

  • (at around 36 mins) When Master Shifu throws two clay discs into the air for Master Tigress to demonstrate the proper use of a split kick, you can see more on the ground. The aerial view is missing the other discs.

The essence of the film is slapsticky, chopsocky action, rendered with great verve and accompanied by bromides having to do with the need to believe.

The stroke of genius is, of course, the film's hero -- the big, lovable bear that is the Chinese panda.

Though the film's simple story is squarely aimed at tots, DreamWorks' digitizers have referenced Eastern visual styles -- everything from delicate Chinese screens to flashy Japanese anime -- to enliven the look of the film.
