A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Despite his general demeanor of oafishness, Fu is a kind rabbit who wants to help those in need.
Positive Role Models
Although characters do work together to fight evil, this is primarily a kung fu-centered animated feature, and, as such, the characters don't venture away from "good" and "bad."
Violence & Scariness
Frequent action, kung fu-style violence. Characters fight with swords and machetes, and they kick and punch their way through scenes.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit is a Chinese computer-animated feature that bears one too many similarities to Kung Fu Panda. Predictably enough, there is plenty of kung fu-style violence -- characters fight with swords and machetes, and they punch and kick their way from one scene to the next. This violence is counterbalanced by generous amounts of attempts at physical comedy. There is some name-calling along the order of "butt" and "loser."

Is It Any Good?
The quality of the computer animation isn't the worst, but it certainly isn't the best. For families who have not seen Kung Fu Panda or Kung Fu Panda 2, your best bet is avoiding this movie and going straight to the original source. Although some recognizable talent (Jon Heder, Tom Arnold, Rebecca Black, Michael Clarke Duncan) lent their voices to this Chinese computer-animated feature, the bottom line is that the similarities between this movie and Kung Fu Panda are too numerous to be ignored. Furthermore, some of the voicings of the other characters (for instance, Biggie) are potentially annoying. Families familiar with Kung Fu Panda can expect to have a field day pointing out all these similarities, and it just might be more entertaining than the actual movie.
