Critic Reviews for Kung Fu Panda 2

All Critics (182) | Top Critics (53)

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.

Where, in short, is this film's personality, or even the characters' personalities, for that matter?

August 31, 2018 | Full Review…

[A] satisfying, if less than sensational, sequel to the funny, charming and action-packed animated feature from 2008.

November 22, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The massive amount of artistry that has gone into the cinematography, lighting and design makes this as sumptuous and pleasing a film to behold as Tangled.

June 24, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The central notion of discovering one's unique personal identity ("the only thing that matters is what you choose to be now") takes us back to an earlier China and it's free of jokey references to other movies.

It drops points for a narrative that overstretches by at least 20 minutes.

Audience Reviews for Kung Fu Panda 2

The studio took a major risk, making a sequel to a film that really did not seem like it could go any further, but that statement has been proven wrong i many more ways than one. Po and the Furious Five have returned and are still ready for another adventure. The visuals have improved and we begin to get some back story on "Po's" childhood. This new story is creative and you will find yourself having sympathy over these characters. The action is on a much larger scale this time around, the task is much bigger, and the time is much shorter. "Kung Fu Panda 2" is just as good as the original, if not better and I cannot recommend this film enough. This has got to be one of the greatest animation sequels that I have ever seen, simply due to the fact that most animated sequels are always subpar. This is a great film for all ages and I cannot wait for part 3.

Kung Fu Panda 2 is a solid animation blockbuster. Jack Black brings more energy and flavor to the sequel. Although the story may lack the ambiance the first installment had, it is bounded together by its countless humor (even going sentimental) and improved animation. 4/5

Kung Fu Panda 2, it's a visual delight with very good action scenes, moving and sometimes have a lack of humor, but still a entertaining motion picture.
