Review: Kung Fu Panda 2
The first Kung Fu Panda is a blast, watching one cute fatty panda working his way to the top of Kung Fu is very satisfying and some very nice Chinese reference as well. Due to the success of the movie, Dreamworks decided to make another one, and guess what, it's another brilliant entry for Kung Fu Panda.
In this sequel, Po, with the Furious Five, go on a quest to destroy Lord Shen, who wants to conquer China. Along the way, Po's past is the theme of this movie. The story might be familiar to the first movie, but is sure is fun to watch. The jokes are again, referring to Chinese culture and over the top, it is super duper funny, I laughed non-stop at the cinema, trust me.
Kung Fu Panda 2 made great use of it's 3-D effect. At first I doubt it, but 3-D is the way to go, it added so much depth to the movie. With the addition of the visual effects, Kung Fu set pieces and animations, Kung Fu Panda 2 is set to entertain your eyes.
Kung Fu Panda 2 might be a repetitive sequel to the brilliant first movie, but in this case, repetition is underrated.
