Go for a beer in the middle forty minutes; come back refreshed for the ... [final] extraordinary battle sequence.

THERE'S an old Chinese proverb (that I just made up) that goes: what is the point in making something pretty to look at if no one can see it?

ABC Radio Brisbane

It focuses too heavily on flashy action sequences and lacks the amusing banter that I remember fondly from the original.

The Age (Australia)

The massive amount of artistry that has gone into the cinematography, lighting and design makes this as sumptuous and pleasing a film to behold as Tangled.

Cinema Autopsy

The first film was a lot of fun; this sequel is even more fun but also something quite special.

FILMINK (Australia)

While the animation is incredible, this also has heart and humour in spades, and proves just as engaging as its predecessor.

Herald Sun (Australia)

The upgrade to 3D is worth while, the story is a solid refinement of the best bits from before and the balance between light humour and darker drama is quite well maintained.

At the Movies (Australia)

It doesn't soar like the best of animation these days but it's an entertainment, particularly for the younger set.

Not as great as the first, but still worth your skadoosh!

Urban Cinefile

Cuter and more enjoyable than the first film, this high energy 3D animation from Dreamworks is packed with kung-fu spectacle, exotic Eastern settings, a fuzzy heart and plenty of chuckles

Offers more of the same, even though it tries to convince us it doesn't.

It is made with consummate craft, contains some exciting set-pieces and the voice work is top-notch.

Philip French

The central notion of discovering one's unique personal identity ("the only thing that matters is what you choose to be now") takes us back to an earlier China and it's free of jokey references to other movies.

It drops points for a narrative that overstretches by at least 20 minutes.

Director Jennifer Yuh Nelson has done her best to ensure a child-friendly movie that parents can sit through too.

The animation is five-star all the way but the plot has a good deal less "awesomeness" than the original.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

With an all-star voice cast, gorgeous animation and a story that both thrills and tugs the heartstrings, it's as good a 'toon as we're likely to see all year.

Another knockout combination of vibrant animation, energetic action and nifty jokes.

A knowing script, beautifully bright animation and a truly towering effort from Black combine to create a cracker of a family film.
