Hyper-stylized, comically violent, and chock full of crazy, kung fu characters, “The Man with the Iron Fists” knows what it is, and knows why the people watching bought their ticket. It’s fun in a tongue in cheek kind of way, as characters with names like “Bronze Body”, “Silver Lion”, and “Jack Knife” fight using all manner of fantastical weaponry and wire work.
Certainly silly at times, but entertaining in its own kind of fashion.
Ok folks, here we go. Part II of the 2012 Fall Movie Preview. Today we’ll break down all the major releases on tap for the month of October, and the first week of November!
As you might imagine, it’s a diverse bunch. There are some ahead that look intriguing, and some that might as well be announcing that they’re garbage already, LOL. Let’s have a look and see if we can’t sort out what’s what!!
Kung Fu Panda is the story of Po (voiced by Jack Black), a portly panda who lives in a village at the foot of a mountain, atop which is a legendary Kung Fu temple. Po dreams of being able to learn Kung Fu, and of joining the exploits of the temples famous martial arts warriors, The Furious Five.
But being a Panda, and thus… a large individual to put it kindly, Po seems destined to a common life serving the customers at his father’s noodle shop.
Little does he realize the greatness he’s destined for.
