Movie Reviews

Cute is the word you are looking for
Zack Davisson | Seattle, WA, USA | 04/25/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I picked this up for my niece and nephew (ages 4 & 5), who are both devoted "My Neighbor Totoro" and "Kiki's Delivery Service" fans. I was pretty excited that they loved Miyazaki, and wanted to keep them interested.Well, they loved "Panda! Go Panda!" just as much as the other films. I was told they watched it five times in a row. Yay for Uncle Zack! Of all of Miyazaki's films, this one is truly aimed at the younger crowd. There is very little of the multi-level storytelling that you will find in his later films. The pandas (who talk, by the way. I was pretty surprised by this, as Totoro does not talk.) are bundles of cuteness. The animation is decent, with lots of bright kid-friendly colors. The DVD is great, as it offers both an English and Japanese soundtrack. (It's a good film for people learning Japanese, because the vocab is limited.) This is very rare for imported kid's films.And, I liked "Panda! Go Panda!" too. It's fun, light fare."
Good Panda family fun

"My 2 1/2 year old son is rapidly wearing out the tape. It features cute animals with exciting (but not too dangerous) adventures, befriended by adorable Mimiko. The circus train scenes are great. If you're a die-hard anime fan, it will probably disappoint, but if you're a parent looking for a truly gentle G-rated film this is it. It also gives glimpses of typical Japanese life (school life, curry-and-rice dinners, etc.) which might be interesting for older viewers."
Who Knew Panda's Liked Curry So Much?
Kelly K. Coyle | Michigan | 03/14/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"One of my daughter's favorites. And I read the synop. above and don't be fooled, the animation here is not that high quality,beautiful animation that you see with Kiki's Delvery Service or Totoro. However, the stories are very cute and sweet and young kids will love the independent little girl who befriends a Panda Papa and his Little One.The stories are about a little girl who meets the pandas and takes care of them. This is not a Kratt Brother's show,the animals are much more human-y than Panda-y. The little girl cooks for them and they eat Curry. There's lots of adventure when the young Panda follows the little girl to school. The second story is about a train of Circus animals and a flood, but there's nothing frightening, as Papa Panda comes to the rescue and everyone is safe and sound. The animation is simplistic, but still good and the stories are interesting but won't over-excite or frighten your child. And you'll find yourself humming the theme song over and over again, whether you like it or not . . ."
Your little kids will love it!

"I have the original version in Japanese. The music is a little bit monotonous, but my son who is just 18 months seems to enjoy it. The film teach some good family values, but the tempo is extremely slow, but again, my son really enjoys all those cute character scenes!"
