Tai Lung Escapes

One of the best animated sequences ever is in Kung Fu Panda when Tai Lung escapes the Chorh-Gom prison. 

Oh, yes. And here's a bit of trivia from the film:

The Kung-Fu/Wuxia convention where attacks on the correct nerve/Chi points can cause paralysis and other effects is adopted although it is not explained in the film, and the jade figurine topped sticks on the shell worn on the imprisoned Tai Lung are positioned at the traditional Chi energy points of the body. The sticks are intended to keep the villain from accessing the power from those points, which is why he was first concerned about removing them before attempting to break his chains. 


  1. I did not know that. Thanks for the safety tip!

  2. Craig: LOL. I had no idea about the Chi points on the prison shell. I gotta say, I'm a HUGE fan of the Kung Fu Panda flicks. The script is OUTSTANDING and Jack Black is perfect as the adorable Po. Great supporting cast and INSANE animation throughout.
