Kung Fu Panda 2

Kung Fu Panda 2 product reviews

Po and the Furious Five set off on his first big challenge since becoming the Dragon Warrior. When his new evil nemesis has taken down the legendary three kung fu masters, Po is the only one left who can save China, save kung fu, and save the bunnies!

You'll laugh out loud as you watch Po try to find his way, and be on the edge of your seat as he fights the most epic kung fu battle ever.

KUNG FU PANDA 2 packs a powerful punch that combines non-stop action, beautiful storytelling and stunning animation in this all-new awesome adventure.

We completely missed Kung Fu Panda when it was at the theatre and hadn't seen it at all. But when Kung Fu Panda 2 came out, we were watching the trailer and were keen to see it. I'm not a huge Jack Black fan, but my daughter loves animals and I must admit that some of the jokes in the short were funny.

Because we hadn't seen the first one, some of the background story was lost on us. But I don't think that mattered too much. We knew that Po was the Panda and that he was a bit different discipline-wise to his 5 companions. We also got to learn his backstory, as to why he has a Crane for his father.

For me the peacock and his posse were a lot of fun, as was the old shaman type character. Po is heroic and grows a lot through the movie. Friendship and self belief are big themes in this film. I really liked that the past in the end didn't really matter too much. For many children, where they come from could be a difficult truth. Having the character embrace the family he has and the friendships he gained was great.

The animation was really good quality. I enjoyed all the animals and how they took on human characteristics. My daughter enjoyed this so much that we had to get it for home as well. We have watched it a couple of times since and it is very entertaining still.

When I went and saw this at the movies, it quite literally was an accident. I'd gone along to the Watties Can Film Festival, taking my then 4 year old and my mum and from the movies listed I thought that I was going to be watching the first Kung Fu Panda movie, not that that was a bad thing.

Kung Fu Panda 2 follows Po and the Furious Five as they face a new foe, Lord Shen, a peacock who has evil plans for fireworks. Having not even seen the trailer I went into this film blind and was simply blown away. It was a fantastic movie, I loved Shen's fighting style, the banter between Po and the Furious Five, and I actually found it to be a far better film overall than the first one.

My favourite thing about this movie would have to be the character development for Po and discovering where he comes from and how he ended up in the Noodle House, and who your family is.

Kung Fu Panda 2 is a great film, one of the best animated movies I've seen with the perfect mix for the entire family.
