Great Fight Scenes: Kung Fu Panda

I've previously spoken about Kung Fu Panda on this blog. Here's the final sight scene:

This is a simply beautiful sequence. It's fantastically put together, combining sweeping vista shots with close-up and personal views of both character's moves and expressions. Through both the perfectly matching music and choreographed fight moves (Po actually fights in bear-style kung fu while Tai Lung uses leopard-style), the fight feels utterly triumphant for Po, revealing both his resistance to Tai Lung's nerve attacks and the secret to being the Dragon Warrior, something so simple that an arrogant person like Tai Lung could never figure it out.
