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

A solid slice of summer entertainment: forgettable, perhaps, but plenty of fun while it lasts.

Hardly a scene goes by that isn't visually striking or kinetically thrilling, and all of it enhanced by 3-D.

Po and friends redeem themselves with a terrific third act, the animation (in three distinct styles) is superb and there's enough hiii-YA-ing to keep the kids yipping throughout.

The film's visuals are thrilling, beguiling, vivid: the greens of a glade or a terraced hillside; the molten reds of Shen's smelting works or yellow-orange arcs of fireworks.

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.
