Another kid’s movie just hit movie theaters nationwide! Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is now playing at your local theater. What better way to beat the heat this week than to take the kids to an ice-cold movie theater and watch Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank?
Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is a film that will speak to a wide audience. From kids to grandparents, there’s a little something in it for everyone. Mel Brooks is one of the main characters in this film and if you’ve ever seen a Mel Brooks film you know the humor is there. Mel Brooks along with Ed Stone,
Nate Hopper, Norman Steinberg, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor, and Alan Uger wrote the screenplay. And if you look at that line up there are some great comedians in there.
The premise of Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is:
A hard-on-his-luck hound Hank (Michael Cera) finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain’s (Ricky Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher (Samuel L. Jackson) to train him, our underdog must assume the role of town samurai and team up with the villagers to save the day.
That’s a really quick take on the movie. If you asked Peyton what the movie was about she would say – An country full of cats, which is purfect!, has an evil Emporer (Ricky Gervais) that is trying to destroy a quiet village so he can take control. Then there’s a dog, Hank, that dreams of becoming a Samurai. Hank travels to this country of Cats where he is met with hostility and thrown in jail because they do not like dogs. Then the Shogun (Mel Brooks) hears from the town that bandits, sent by the Emporer, need help. So the Shogun calls the Emporer and tells him to send a Samurai to protect the village. The Emporer doesn’t want to send anyone that can actually help so he decides to send Hank. Hank has no training but if the Emporer makes him a Samurai the town has to accept him. But the Emporer is banking on the town killing Hank because that’s what they do when dogs trespass. And if the town harms Hank then they are in violation of hurting a Samurai and the Emporer can punish them all and get rid of the town. So the Emporer sends Hank to protect the town thinking he has solved his problem. But it’s not that simple.
We are not going to share the rest of the story because we really want you all to go see it for yourself. Just know, there are jokes for mom and dad and jokes for the kids. It’s a great family film that everyone can get lost in for about 85 minutes.
