Kung Fu Panda 2 is a very enjoyable if predictable sequel that actually improves on the original. Surprisingly dark in places, especially the tale of Po's origin but not so dark as it will frighten the young but certainly darker than you might expect yet at the same time you do know exactly what's coming next and how the film will end up. Some inspired voice casting, Gary Oldman as an evil peacock with links to Po's origins and Jean Claude Van Damme as a kung fu fighting crocodile join the voice cast from the original, Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman and Jackie Chan all return from the original and if you're wondering like me how on earth a goose could possibly be the father to Jack Black's panda Po, and yes i am aware it's only a cartoon, in this you find out. Good fun and the ending hints at a possible third film.
