Kung Fu Panda 2 Reviews
Resonant Line: "Po: [stares up a long passage] Ah. My old enemy... stairs!"
the facial expressions are very precise and accurate and the fight scenes are creative and original especially king shen's movement.
I am a big fan of the animation used in Kung Fu Panda, including the sharp, paper-like illustrations that are used to relate events that happened long ago. The characters are perfect for their abilities, and their movements, specially when they're shown in slow motion in this film, are just mesmerizing. As mentioned before, while it is a continuation of the first movie, it is still easy to grasp it without it. There is no need for someone to watch the first Kung Panda movie to understand this... but you will definitely want to see it after watching this.
In this sequel, we learn about the origins of Po, and just like him, we start wondering how he ended up where he now is. We follow him through this adventure which eventually becomes a path of self-discovery. It is needless to say, there are many laughs along the way. Even the action scenes are incredibly hilarious. The fighting inside the dragon scene, in particular, made me laugh a little too much (Had to mention it).
The film's conclusion is particularly satisfying and opens a whole new plot for a third sequel, leaving you wondering and longing for more. While the plot is in fact, somewhat repetitive to the first movie, it feels completely new. As a result Kung Fu Panda 2, with it's music, animation, comedy style, and lovable characters offers just as much as the original.
However Kung Fu Panda 2 is not as good as Kung Fu Panda, it lacked the mysterious/magical feel the original had, and i remember the first one being much more hilarious. That doesnt mean Kung Fu Panda 2 doesnt have its funny moments.
Also the ending is quite bad, just like in Kung Fu Panda 3
Kung Fu Panda 2 is the least good movie out of the trilogy, but nonetheless pretty entertaining
