Its a cute movie.

I personally like this movie. My family and I went to the theaters and seen it together and it was great fun. There was some mild adult humor in it but all in all it was a great movie.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Despite its brevity, SECRETS OF THE FURIOUS FIVE holds its own as an enjoyable series of vignettes. Each of the five stories, while not as pristinely animated as Kung Fu Panda, keeps the pace and action up while bestowing a lesson. Each has exciting characters (like an island full of gators and a fierce gorilla warrior) and an original storyline that will keep all ages engaged.

If that's not enough Pandamonium, dip into the extras, the best being a segment in which kids can imitate the moves of other kids as they demonstrate the different fighting techniques. It's a better fit for the DVD than the hip-hoppy "Learn the Panda Dance" feature, but both will definitely get young kung fu students off the couch.
