List of Kung Fu Panda 2 Reviews
Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
The action scenes are bigger and better than the last time, and the animation itself is exceptional in terms of textures and lighting.But Kung Fu Panda 2 is also a film with heart. There are touching scenes between Po and his adoptive father, and an important message in the end: that inner peace can be attained only by confronting the past, then letting go of it.A very worthy sequel to the first film, Kung Fu Panda 2 is a treat for animation lovers. I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for this return to awesomeness!Visit Site for More

Visit Site for MoreKung Fu Panda works not only because of his bumbling ways as a martial arts hero but also because he is such a bundle of doubts, misgivings and apprehensions. Yes, he's hardly your archetypal superhero and therein lies his super charm. The action sequences of the film, shot in 3D, do form the highlight of it, but there's no undermining the friendship-and family emotional sequences.Holding out a promise for a third part, Kung fu Panda 2 makes for some great family viewing.

Directed by debutant Jennifer Yuh Nelson, this sequel is visually sumptuous, surprisingly emotional and sweetly funny.Of course the 3D requires many set-piece action sequences and the other characters hardly get any attention. But Kung Fu Panda 2 is exactly what a family needs on a hot summer day – I recommend that you check it out.Visit Site for More

Frankly, it doesn't matter because irrespective of what age, you're going to revel in the unstoppable madness, mayhem and melodrama of the coolest, cuddliest and chubbiest panda in the history of animation.Kung Fu Panda's charm lies in the classic triumph of an underdog, a self-deprecating, humorous one at that. Kung Fu Panda 2 digs deeper, darker without compromising on its essence and effervescence to deliver a sleek, dazzling entertainer and confirm its utterly lovable hero's enduring popularity. Indeed, there will be further sequels… if the climax is any indication.Visit Site for More

Kung Fu Panda 2’ gets a little darker and slushier than the first, but never loses sight of its objective : fun, fun, fun. The animation is outstanding, and the story has enough surprises to make it new. Don’t worry at all if you can’t see this one in 3D, with its dark, cumbersome glasses. `Kung Fu Panda 2’ is equally, if not more, enjoyable in 2D.Visit Site for More

Visit Site for MoreIf Kung Fu Panda’s story were akin to that of a decently made Golden Harvest production, the kind you stumble upon on TV at 2 in the morning, its sequel’s stylings are of Yimou Zhang proportions.And, in addition to pile upon pile of butt-stomping, blink-and-you-miss-it action sequences, the film, which, as mentioned earlier, plays out on a much larger, lusher canvas, accommodates generous amounts of rib-tickling humour and depthKung Fu Panda 2 stands out as being a funny, fast-paced and, at the same time, touching digitally animated film that is miles ahead of its underwhelming predecessor. Catch it.

Visit Site for MoreOn the whole, ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ is a wholesome entertainer. The film will be patronised by urban Indian audiences. Positive word of mouth should help garner more footfalls over the weekend.Definitely watch it for the humour; the superb action sequences; and, of course, Jack Black’s funny lines.
Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:A O Scott Site:NewYorkTimes
As Po tries to work out his issues, “Kung Fu Panda 2,” directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson from a screenplay by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, succumbs to its own crippling confusion. Accomplishes the depressingly familiar mathematical trick of being both more and less than its predecessor.So all in all, “Kung Fu Panda 2” is about what you would expect, and its audience is likely to settle for it in the absence of a compelling alternative.Visit Site for More
