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.
Very nearly as good as the first one. Gorgeously animated, of course, with a solid script and some very good character development. A bit dimly lit around the middle, though that may just be my old screen…
The action, animation and voice work are all magnificent, especially a stand-out performance from Gary Oldman as the sequel's sinister villain. However, the pacing can feel a bit awkward and the writing, both humourous and emotional, doesn't always hit the mark.
goddamnit i love that little dustin hoffman red panda thing
It was a decent movie but not as good as the first one.
Creo que esta película se ha convertido en mi favorita de los últimos años. Me encanta como tratan el tema de que Po sigue siendo torpe, se ríen de algunos tropos clásicos (el héroe dando un discurso en la lejanía que no se oye) y no introducen romance, sino una amistad, ENTRE CHICO Y CHICA.
A nivel narrativo, me encanta como va dejando caer cosas que luego resultarán relevante más adelantes, y lo mismo del revés.
Y las escenas de "Rickshaw chase", "more cannons" y "Zen Ball Master" es de lo mejorcito, sobre todo con la banda sonora de Jhon Powell, que otra cosa no, pero temas de villanos sabe crear, y aquí no es menos
Kung Fu Panda 2
"Family is created by love and nurturing, not necessarily biology"
Wieder kreativ. Wieder witzig stellenweise, Figuren haben nichts von ihrem Charme eingebüßt. Schöne Story, auch schön für Kinder! Wieder das sehr atmosphärische chinesische Szenario mit erneut schön gestalteten Kampfszenen. Der Film bringt wieder einige wichtige Messages fürs Leben rüber.
Der Film macht Spaß, hat sich nur an einigen Stellen leicht gezogen, während der erste durchweg fesselnd war.
"Your story may not have such a happy beginning, but that doesn't make you who you are. It is the rest of your story, who you choose to be. So, who are you, panda?"
I liked and enjoyed Kung Fu Panda. It had charismatic characters, cool animation, alright story. Knowing how nowadays it's near impossible to produce a sequel which tops the first installment, I knew that hoping for better would be a waste of time (especially coming from Dreamworks Animation). But yeah, Kung Fu Panda 2 did it! This fat bear did it, it pull a Toy Story on us!!
This second installment is so much more ambitious, that it goes the distance and expands its canon, while at…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
