OK, first things first:  Thank you Dreamworks! After a long time in history of the Mighty 3D this is one of the first 3D animated movies not from Pixar that doesn’t put out an obvious pop culture reference each and every minute (although there must have been a ton of Kung Fu movie references). And I don’t miss any of it. Instead the guys at Dreamworks tried to tell a story of a panda who wants to kick ass in big fights full of action and heroism as the dream sequence at the beginning establishes. That’s okay to me.
