Jack Black gets a lot of buzz for this movie. And, he should. He's funny and brings a warm heart to this character we haven't always seen from his previous characters. However, the true standout is Dustin Hoffman in his first animation role. He receieves almost as much screen time as Black, but delivers his voice performance by immersing himself in the character, transforming himself like we've seen him do many times throughout his Oscar-winning career. It is an actor of the highest quality who would take a voice performance in a film called KUNG FU PANDA as seriously and with as much attention to detail as he would any serious dramatic role. David Cross, Ian McShane, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan and James Hong all deliver great voice performances as well in their supporting roles. Aside from the voice talent on hand here, the animators have really outdone themselves, going above and beyond with breathtaking action sequences (Tylong's escape from jail, the duel for the dumpling, and the bridge sequence all really stand out.), and backrounds that reflect the natural beauty of the Chinese mountains we've seen in many live action movies in the past. Kung Fu Panda may be a bit predictable and it really does lean toward a more child-based humor, but it is fun the whole family can enjoy.
