Comments: It was amusing and fun. Some of the scenes are very well done with acute attention put on details and since it involves animals I was less bothered by the CGI work. It was also one of the very few films in which I tended to like the villain better than the hero. Purrrrr… What worries me is what kind of message the movie sends to the obese kids who sit on the sofa stuffing themselves while watching kung fu/action movies on the TV and dreaming about the cool things they would like to do. Will it encourage them to go and do something about it or just sit there and wait for those things to come to them?

Rating: 8/10
