Memorial Day Must-See Movie: Kung Fu Panda 2 Reviewsshellthings
What are your plans for Memorial Day weekend? The three-day weekend and the heat down here in the south will have me searching for an indoor activity for my kids.
Kung Fu Panda 2 opens today and it promises to be a good movie for the family to watch! Find out what the critics are saying about the movie:
Variety: “Once again, the DreamWorks team demonstrates that humor is the primary weapon in its arsenal, relying on Black to crack wise throughout while doing their best to supply jokes that won’t date the movie a decade down the road.”
Roger Ebert: “‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ is exactly as you’d expect, and more. The animation is elegant, the story is much more involving than in the original, and there’s boundless energy. I enjoyed it as fully as I possibly could, given the horror of its 3-D.”
Entertainment Weekly: “At times, Kung Fu Panda 2 suggests Bambi redone as an episode of Oprah. Yet it’s a more-than-worthy sequel. You’ll taste, and savor, the victory through an irresistible gush of ‘healing’ tears.”
LA Times: “Now to the 3-D. What makes it appealing in ‘Panda 2’ is how deeply embedded it is within the film. It’s not just the random fireball being hurled right at us, but that the entire world of Po feels as if it has been carved out of space, rather than sketched out on a page.”
Not all reviews are entirely favorable. The Boston Globe points out that the film might not be for all ages and that Kung Fu Panda 2 goes into issues about adoption that you might need to be prepared for.
All in all, Kung Fu Panda 2 seems like the movie to see this Memorial Day weekend!
Hilarious! See Jack Black’s Kung Fu moves!
