Audience Reviews for Kung Fu Panda 2

  • Dec 19, 2013
    It is a wonderful event to see female filmmakers step up into the industry with such creativity and enthusiasm and set a new quality bar. A project leaded by Jennifer Yuh and produced by women, Kung Fu Panda 2 conglomerates an expensive voicing cast once again and acquires stardom in my book as one of the few sequels in history that surpasses the original feature, providing surprisingly solid action sequences and a philosophy-driven plot full of surprises. The visual design has more variety, the humor is more spot-on and pacing is as accurate as a doctor's pulse. By no means I am talking about a triumph in animation, but about how to break the "sequels law" and showcase your talent with style, while at the same time maintaining an original story alive and worth following... and of course, showing that women are capable of wonderful things. This is the best Dreamworks attempt since Shrek 2 (How to Train Your Dragon never worked for me). 69/100

    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

    Skadoosh! Kung Fu Panda 2 delivers another action packed and exciting adventure that's fun for all ages. As a new threat rises, the Dragon Warrior and the Furious Five must rise to defend all of China from tyranny. In addition to the original cast, several more big-name actors lend their talents, including Gary Oldman, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Danny McBride; each of whom create interesting and exciting new characters. The quality of the computer animation has improved, and the fight scenes are more elaborate this time round. Kung Fu Panda 2 is a solid sequel and a fun new adventure that's sure to entertain.
