Album Review

Composers Hans Zimmer and John Powell infuse the score for Dreamworks' 2008 animated comedy-adventure Kung Fu Panda with plenty of semi-traditional Asian motifs and instrumentation, resulting in an enjoyable — if entirely predictable — soundtrack that deals out clichés like candy on Halloween. The opening track introduces the "Hero" theme, a wistful flute-led melody that sounds nearly identical to Howard Shore's "Hobbit" theme from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. What follows is largely orchestral, with bursts of tribal percussion and the occasional dance number. The soundtrack closes with star Jack Black and Cee-Lo Green performing "Kung Fu Fighting," a song whose inclusion is apparently mandatory for every film, commercial, or skit ever made involving Asian culture.

kung fu fighting single

check out the carl douglas original version of kung fu fighting, it is the same song, just mixed differently - and you dont have to buy it as part of an album

Kung Fu Mastery by ZIMMER & POWELL!!!

This score is an absolute blast! It has such an epic sound to it and the themes by Zimmer and Powell bounce off each other like a perfect Chinese HOT POT! The oriental style and instrumentation is brilliant and even though all the tracks are great, the stand out is for sure 'Sacred Pool Of Tears'. If this score doesn't bring out the Kung Fu in you... Nothing will! BONZAI !!!!! ;)

Single PLEASE!

Bring on the Kung Fu Fighting Single please...
