Since we last checked in, the Dragon Warrior panda Po (Jack Black) and the furious five (Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, David Cross, Lucy Liu) have been busy training and continuing to master their martial skills. Meanwhile, peacock, Lord Shen (Gary Oldman), has been plotting to claim the throne of China, a position denied to him years ago. Now with the science of gunpowder and weapons that could destroy Kung Fu practitioners, Shen’s reign of terror might actually stand. Can the gang stop Shen before it’s too late, and what of the haunting nightmares that are preventing Po from finding inner peace? Top notch vocal talent and well plotted action and fun adventure keep this animated tale interesting. But, the humor department felt a little thin this go around with only a few laugh out loud moments. None the less, the film still entertains, and, for the most part functions as a stand alone feature with a positive moral to boot. I’m thinking matinee. Kung Fu Panda 2 is rated PG.
