Well, I took my family to see Kung Fu Panda 2, and we all thought it was at least as good as the first film. It is engrossing, touching, clever, and much of the time absolutely hilarious. We had seen that the critics all panned it, and had high hopes because they are quite often wrong. Of course, it depends on how you judge these things. A lot of the surprise element is inevitably lost now that we know Po is, indeed, the Dragon Warrior in spite of his ungainly appearance and humble behaviour. And it must have been hard for the director and scriptwriters to define his new status vis a vis Shifu and the Furious Five. Furthermore - as a lot of comments here have pointed out - how on earth could they follow an act as supremely vicious and powerful as Ian McShane's Tai Lung?

All those problems are resolved in Kung Fu Panda 2 - and, I think, very satisfactorily indeed. The main dramatic engine is, of course, the villain, and Gary Oldman's rendering of the peacock Lord Shen is right up there with McShane's performance as Tai Lung. True, the peacock is not a supreme Kung Fu fighter - although he is pretty good - but he over-compensates for that by introducing mechanisation. Cleverly exploiting the fact that gunpowder and fireworks were first invented in China, the writers conceive the happy idea of making Shen set up a full-fledged production line devoted to turning out huge cannon. As Shifu and others explain, Shen's artillery has the potential to overthrow Kung Fu for once and for all - so Po and the Furious Five are fighting, not just for themselves, their friends, and the people of a conquered city, but to maintain the supremacy of their religion and their way of life.

I'll admit I had to get talked into going to see the original Kung Fu Panda, but I quickly got caught up in the story. So when they started advertising Kung Fu Panda 2, I knew I would have to see it. While not as funny as the original, it is still quite entertaining.

The story picks up at some point after the first movie ends. Now officially accepted as the Dragon Warrior, Po (voiced by Jack Black) is known as a national hero. He regularly joins the Furious Five as they use Kung Fu to defend China from enemies.

Unfortunately, a new enemy is about to return. Shen (Gary Oldman) was banished because of his desire to use fireworks for evil. But there is a prophecy that Shen will be defeated by a black and white warrior.

Meanwhile, Po is beginning to think that he might not be related to his father the goose. He is seeing flashbacks of his old life and begins to think that Shen might hold the answers. Will Po learn the truth? And if so, will Po find the inner peace to defeat Shen?

In my opinion, there are two kinds of sequels - those that basically rehash the plot and those that try to continue the story. This is definitely a sequel in the later category. Yes, Po still has much training to learn. No, he's not a perfect fighter. But he can hold his own, and the Furious Five have accepted him as an equal. In fact, it is clear early on that he is a much loved member of the group.

Having said that, the Furious Five are hardly better developed than they were before. Angelina Jolie's Tigress and Seth Rogan's Mantis get the best development, but it's honestly hard to remember who is who from the rest of the five. Really, Po and Shen are the only characters who get a decent amount of development this time around.

I liked this movie and my 10 y.o. daughter liked it even more - but we both agreed that it was not as great as the previous one. Below you will find the reasons, for which I can not rate "Kung Fu Panda 2" more than fours stars (when in the same time I would willingly give at least six of them for the first one!).

First, there is the hero himself. I think that Dreamwork people were faced with an impossible challenge for this second chapter of Po's adventures, as they had to keep him funny, when in the same time he is now a super hero and a kung fu master and not anymore just a blundering wannabee. For that reason the level of humor in this movie is much much lower than in the previous one and many jokes feel forced and ultimately are not very funny. Still, there are some funny moments, the one with the stairs being my favorite...

Then there is the question of the Furious Five and their relation with Po. It is again much weaker than in the previous one, with the Furious Five being mostly reduced to the role of background sidekicks. Tigress saves a little bit this aspect of the movie (I really wonder if she will not end in a serious relation with Po) and there is a good moment with Mantis father issues (or rather lack of them...), but it is quite little.

The villain in this movie - peacock Lord Shen - is quite well done and it is useful to remind here, that in some cultures (mostly in the Middle-East), this bird is considered as the symbol of Satan (because of its pride and vanity). But still, he is absolutely no match to Tailung! And because of that, the final fight doesn't come even close to the great duels between the Furious Five, then Shifu and ultimately Po against the supremely evil snow leopard in the first "Kung Fu Panda".
