Review Fans of this summer's animated hit, Kung Fu Panda, already know all about how the roly-poly panda, Po (Jack Black), became a kung fu legend. But in the short, straight-to-DVD follow-up, Secrets of the Furious Five, you'll find out how Po's kung fu friends--Mantis, Viper, Crane, Tigress, and Monkey--learned the important lessons that turned them into great kung fu warriors...Po (Black) may have proven himself as the Dragon Warrior, but now he faces an even more daunting challenge: the kung fu beginners' class...Clocking in at just 24 minutes long, Secrets of the Furious Five could have (and probably should have) been included as an extra on the Kung Fu Panda DVD. Still, this super-short story manages to hold its own among other straight-to-DVD sequels. Sure, the animation isn't quite as stunning as it was in the original--and only a few of the big-name stars have returned to lend their voices. But there's still plenty to love in this animated short...As in Kung Fu Panda, Black makes the lovably bumbling kung fu fighting panda, Po, a fun character. Though he chooses not to tell his own story (after all, that's what Kung Fu Panda is for), he makes a great storyteller--and the kids watching at home will be just as captivated as the cute little kung fu bunnies in his beginners' class...While this new adventure doesn't have all of the same voices, it still features the same lovable characters--from tough-as-nails young Tigress to mischievous Monkey. And their short-and-sweet tales are more than just entertaining--they'll also teach kids a lesson or two about being a good person...So if your kids fell in love with Po and his kung fu fighting friends in Kung Fu Panda, this short sequel is an enjoyable extra that's worth checking out.
