Capitalizes on the same techniques that made its predecessor successful.

The film becomes one of DreamWorks Animation's most satisfying animated features yet.

Do the world a favor and skip this movie; maybe it'll force the creative team to put in actual effort into something besides the fight scenes (which, I might add, were short on martial arts) on number 3.

Beautifully storyboarded, each frame looks like an illustration from a well-written children's book. The Hans Zimmer musical score is fantastic.

It presents an amazing prologue animated in the manner of the typical Chinese puppet theaters. [Full Review in Spanish]

Kung Fu Panda 2 feels refreshing.

This movie offers further proof that the immersive medium of 3D is ill-suited for the genre that's been most compelled to adopt it: hectic, fast-moving action. Bring on the inner peace.

This is rare territory for a children's movie, and it shows a surprising depth and maturity. It may take a few shortcuts here and there, but it packs a disarming emotional wallop.

It's a zippy 90-minute affair that is effective and entertaining. But look deeper and there is more, a richly detailed movie with a surprisingly sweet and emotional story at its core.

Kung Fu Panda 2 gets a little darker and slushier than the first, but never loses sight of its objective: fun, fun, fun. The animation is outstanding, and the story has enough surprises to make it new.

This is exactly the kind of film that's needed sometimes, it's fun, exciting, vivid and memorable. Oh, and kids will like it too I guess...

Where, in short, is this film's personality, or even the characters' personalities, for that matter?

Po the Panda smoothly flows from lovable loser to supercool warrior on a mission in the entertaining animated adventure "Kung Fu Panda 2."

An endearing story of brotherly love, acceptance and friendship that will attract young and old alike. [Full review in Spanish]

[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.

["Kung Fu Panda 2" has] got everything you could want in a film made for kids including a good story, stunning animation, and a few laughs.
