Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series' plot is nothing new -- almost every martial arts movie or series revolves around the conflict between good and evil, and viewers can almost always predict how it'll turn out. That said, the script is actually decent, and most of the characters seem human and real, rather than leaning too much toward stereotypes or archetypes -- with the notable exception of the Zodiac Master, who's a typical, snakelike, super-evil baddie.

The fight scenes are engaging, even though the animation, like the plot, isn't exceptional. (The only real twist to the show is that both Ang and Ling are likable to some extent, so it's easy for viewers to be torn when the siblings are duking it out.) The series' many dramatic moments are occasionally balanced by a jester-like character who becomes Ang's sidekick and provides the comic relief -- which will probably amuse tweens, but otherwise seems like an unnecessary element.
