KUNG FU PANDA 2 (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Stars ììì

Kung Fu Panda 2
—bland, bordering on a message movie more than good, computer animated entertainment—caters to a child rather than adult audience.

Storyline

Po (voice of Jack Black) discovers his Panda origins through a series of flashbacks, his teacher Shifu (voice of Dustin Hoffman), and a Court Soothsayer (Michelle Yeoh). Po is urged to find his inner peace through embracing his past.

Additional Thanks

Good work for Director Jennifer Yu Nelson. Thank you to Producer Melissa Cobb for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Mr. Ping the Goose (James Wong), Tigress (voice of Angelina Jolie), Lord Shen (voice of Gary Oldman), Monkey (voice of Jackie Chan), Mantis (voice of Seth Rogan), Viper (voice of Lucy Liu), Crane (voice of David Cross), and Wolf Boss (Danny McBride).


Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. If your child is following the series, the film is necessary to understanding the sequels. Otherwise, Rango, Hop, or Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil are more entertainment for your dollar.
