[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.

[A] satisfying, if less than sensational, sequel to the funny, charming and action-packed animated feature from 2008.

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.

I guess my expectations may have been too high. I didn't want a silly KUNG FU PANDA 2, loaded with jokes. I was hoping it would be more like the first one.

The best animated film of the year, Kung Fu Panda 2 plays as a solid kids' film, a great kung fu actioner, and an emotionally centered drama.

One can only wonder if cinematic animation might find a new path, one far removed from the sadly lucrative video-game market.

The characters do a lot of chasing around, running, punching, and kicking, making the movie more exhausting than exciting.

What could up have amounted to a highly moving work of art is constantly diminished by low-grade TV sitcom humor such as can be found on any series starring Kevin James or James Belushi.

Stellar animation aside, themes such as adoption anxiety, genocide and WMD dominate the storyline-not the usual kiddie fare to be sure.

Panda 2 packs more than enough personality and visual pizzazz to make up for its minor shortcomings.

a fun summer outing that will please its audience by delivering a familiar feel with just enough novelty to keep things fresh.

A visually engrossing, technical triumph, Kung Fu Panda 2 is worth seeing on the big screen for the sheer eye popping nature of its realisation. But dramatically, it's not packing a punch.

Kung Fu Panda 2 isn't just a model sequel or family film: as an action movie, it's superior to most of what's out there.

Kung Fu Panda 2 is all just a bit too familiar, a bit too common, a bit too unimaginative. In the real world, recycling is a great and admirable thing. In cinema, it is a death knell.

...there are crashing pagodas, hurtling cannonballs, wild chases, and of course, a lot of whiplash-inducing kung fu, effortlessly balancing elegance, ferocity, variety and comic timing like the genre's pros.
