Kung Fu Panda 2(2011)

Doesn't match the panache or hilarity that the original drew us in with. However it is still "awesome!" Why did I enjoy this movie then? Partly because Gary Oldman's voicing of Shen came across as a pleasant surprise AND the action was great! However the villain is sadly not as bad-ass as Tai Lung from the original and sadly both villains do share a familiar style of voice (posh/aristocratic.) The Furious Five use their unique abilities to enhance the action and the 3D effects are amazing. If you liked Shifu from the first KFP then you maybe disappointed as he takes a backseat for most of the sequel to allow Po's character to shine more and make way for the introduction of Croc and Ox (actually shown in the first film briefly in a cartoon sequence in Po's dream!) This is a must see for KFP fans as well as Dreamworks fans (as it is their best sequel to date.) Watch this one.(3D)- Mark Jenkins
