Kung Fu Panda 2
Prepare for the Year of Awesomeness!
Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five - Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. But Po’s new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. It is up to Po and The Furious Five to journey across China to face this threat and vanquish it. But how can Po stop a weapon that can stop kung fu? He must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.
In terms of storytelling quality, this is basically what The Matrix Reloaded should have been...
Making excellent use of all the ingredients that made its predecessor an instant classic, the follow-up chapter to Kung Fu Panda is another rollicking, ravishing & riveting adventure that lives up to its hype, adds more depth & flesh to the arcs of all reprising characters, further expands the world we dived into in the first film, and is a worthy sequel that even surpasses the original in few aspects.
The story of Kung Fu Panda 2 finds Po now living his fulfilled dream, serving as the Dragon Warrior & protecting the valley with his fellow kung fu warriors whom he once idolised. His latest adventure begins when Lord Shen returns from exile with a fearsome new weapon & has plans of conquering all…
A sombre tale of identity and abandonment. Yes, I am talking about Kung Fu Panda 2.
"My son is alive."
One of the best animated films in the past ten years, if you ask me. Up there with some of Pixar's films even. Bring on Kung Fu Panda 3.
"I'm not freaking out, I'm freaking in!"
Surprisingly impressive for a sequel. The animation is markedly better, not only in the intricacy of its movement (particularly in the fight scenes) but also in the dynamism of its style: directed by Jennifer Yuh, who did the opening scene in the first Kung Fu Panda, this one occasionally returns to the evocative, hand-drawn aesthetic of that dream sequence.
Not quite as seamless as the first (you can tell which actors were only in the studio for a day or two) and some of the emotional beats feel a bit more forced this time around (particularly between Po and Mr. Ping), but the essence of Po and Tigress is maintained rather well, and…
"Kung Fu Panda 2" is one of Dreamworks Animation's best films and a rare case where the sequel is much better than the original. This literally gets pretty well everything an animation and a sequel should get right. It's darker than it's predecessor but it also has a ton of laughs and fun sequences, and it explores the origin story of Po giving him a lot more development. The action sequences are awesome, the animation is absolutely gorgeous, and their are more than a few occasions in this where I teared up a little bit. "Kung Fu Panda 2" has all the humour, action, and bright colours you would expect but it also has a surprising amount of emotion, darkness, and most importantly a huge heart to it. The third film has big shoes to fill.
Bien moins bien que le premier selon moi
Darker and filled with a lot more action than its predecessor but still just as funny and heart-warming.
Melhor franquia da Dreamworks disparado.
it's gorgiously animated
I thought this was a really heartfelt and action-packed improvement over the original, with tons of great character development and a strong story. It used the supporting cast much more effectively and I found the villain far more compelling a character than the relatively shallow offering in the first movie.
One of the greats.
A beautifully brisk film that builds even further on the first film's mythology. It doesn't rehash any of the elements of the first film, but allows itself to be a fresh story. It's far more emotional, with a surprising reminiscence of Kill Bill. The story of Po's origin is genuinely touching, thanks to James Hong's voice acting and the gloriously animated flashbacks, resplendent in ominous red and black. Gary Oldman does a chillingly job as Lord Shen, whilst the original cast all continue to do work that ranges from unremarkable (Jolie) to excellent (Black). The animations of the King fu, especially whenever Lord Shen is on screen, is a wonder to behold. The films director and screenwriter know just when Po needs to be funny and when Po needs to be composed. This balance is key for these films to succeed, and why there has been three good films and no duds. Confidence with what you've got.

No sé si me gusta más el guión, el desarrollo de los personajes o LA MALDITA DIRECCIÓN ARTÍSTICA DE ESTA PELÍCULA.
A falta de ver la 3, es, por ahora mi favorita de la trilogía y quizás mi favorita de Dreamworks.
