News & Interviews for Kung Fu Panda 2
Critic Reviews for Kung Fu Panda 2
[A] satisfying, if less than sensational, sequel to the funny, charming and action-packed animated feature from 2008.
[Director Jennifer Yuh] manages the balance nicely; Po is alternately awesome and dumbstruck, and it can be fun to guess at the start of each scene which attribute will come to the fore. Often it's a combination on the two.
Kung Fu Panda 2 achieves something few sequels to blockbusters ever do -- it stays true to a successful formula without seeming tired, cynical, or lazy.
Kung Fu Panda 2 benefits from an entertaining story, fantastic direction and amazing visuals. It's one of 2011's best animated films.
["Kung Fu Panda 2" has] got everything you could want in a film made for kids including a good story, stunning animation, and a few laughs.
Audience Reviews for Kung Fu Panda 2
The studio took a major risk, making a sequel to a film that really did not seem like it could go any further, but that statement has been proven wrong i many more ways than one. Po and the Furious Five have returned and are still ready for another adventure. The visuals have improved and we begin to get some back story on "Po's" childhood. This new story is creative and you will find yourself having sympathy over these characters. The action is on a much larger scale this time around, the task is much bigger, and the time is much shorter. "Kung Fu Panda 2" is just as good as the original, if not better and I cannot recommend this film enough. This has got to be one of the greatest animation sequels that I have ever seen, simply due to the fact that most animated sequels are always subpar. This is a great film for all ages and I cannot wait for part 3.
Kung Fu Panda 2 is a solid animation blockbuster. Jack Black brings more energy and flavor to the sequel. Although the story may lack the ambiance the first installment had, it is bounded together by its countless humor (even going sentimental) and improved animation. 4/5
Kung Fu Panda 2, it's a visual delight with very good action scenes, moving and sometimes have a lack of humor, but still a entertaining motion picture.

|Wolf Boss:||No problem. [drops Po]|
|Po:||By the way, I threw up a little bit on the third floor. Do you have some type of 'evil janitor' to pick that up?|
