As far as animated series go, I've never been overly enamoured with the Kung Fu Panda series, which seems to follow too many formulas and lacks enough inspiration. But kids seem to like it, so what gives.
Kung Fu Panda 2 adds Gary Oldman, Michelle Yeoh, Danny McBride, Dennis Haysbert and Jean-Claude Van Damme to a cast that already included Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, Jackie Chan and David Cross, making a very accomplished voice cast.
There's some funny moments, but No. 2 is basically a rehash of the first, and the first wasn't even one of the better DreamWorks efforts.
