Review: Kung Fu Panda 2

KUNG FU PANDA 2,  DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.’s spectacular follow up to the Academy Award®-nominated original debuts on Blu-ray and DVD on Panda 2sday, December 13, 2011.  Combining non-stop action, beautiful storytelling and stunning animation, the “winning sequel” (USA Today) delighted viewers of all ages with its engaging story that is both “hilarious and full of heart” (WABC-TV).  The film earned more than $650 million at the global box office, making it one of the top five films of the year worldwide.  In addition to the smash hit film, the KUNG FU PANDA 2 Awesome Packs feature the exclusive debut of the all-new Po adventure Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters plus two free memberships to the popular online game universe Kung Fu Panda World.  Packed with even more panda-rific bonus features, theKUNG FU PANDA 2 Awesome Packs will be available with expected pricing as low as $25 on DVD and $30 on Blu-ray. 

In the action-filled companion story Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters, Po and the Furious Five uncover the legend of three of kung fu’s greatest heroes: Master Thundering Rhino, Master Storming Ox and Master Croc.  Kids can then follow in Po’s footsteps to become a kung fu master with Kung Fu Panda World, the virtual online game universe where kids create avatars, play games with their favorite characters, win points towards earning a kung fu black belt, chat with friends and more.

This was rather very interesting to watch for us as a family ! In the beginning, it is filled with Kung Fu action but it gets interesting later on with Panda trying to save Kung Fu. I thought it was a lot of action for my 3.5 yr old but there were some sweet, heart warming scenes where Panda's dad says it all about how he found Panda as a baby. My son enjoyed watching it and wanted to watch it again as it was a completely new theme for him with all the animals in action. 

Loved the background colour and location designs that subtly highlighted the Chinese culture and not to forget ,the noodles!

You will enjoy this sequel as the adventure takes you on an oriental journey packed with action and a great storyline.

Buy it for CAD 22.97  / USD 24.99

I watched Kung Fu Panda 2 with my kids and we were laughing almost all the movie. We watched it on Blu-Ray, so the picture quality was amazing. We returned it already, but my kids keep on asking me to rent it once more with our Blockbuster Movie Pass, so I bet we will be seeing it again soon! Being able to rent movies like Kung Fu Panda using the Blockbuster Movie Pass is nice because many are available almost as soon as they release. DISH is pretty much giving it away too! Whether or not I work for DISH, I would still get the Blockbuster Movie Pass because it is so convenient! Kung Fu Panda 2 is definitely a fantastic movie! Try seeing it on Blu-Ray!
