Kung Fu Panda 2

Tampa Bay Times
Part two is even more gorgeous to behold, and deeper in substance.
The Hollywood Reporter
It all moves along briskly, with a degree of visual grace and a solid feel for 3D.
Once again, the DreamWorks team demonstrates that humor is the primary weapon in its arsenal.
At times, Kung Fu Panda 2 suggests "Bambi" redone as an episode of Oprah. Yet it's a more-than-worthy sequel.
Jennifer Yuh Nelson's sequel delivers a bevy of superpowered set pieces that are dexterous and delirious, as well as tonally confident.
A precisely calibrated crowd-pleasing machine, balancing action, comedy and just the bare minimum of pathos.
A fun and surprisingly affecting little adventure, Kung Fu Panda 2 ranks among the best films DreamWorks has ever done.
A sequel that delivers more heart than laughs, and is, if anything, more visually dazzling than the 2008 original film.
The New York Times
Accomplishes the depressingly familiar mathematical trick of being both more and less than its predecessor.
For an animation studio that too often specializes in the frivolous and glib (begone, Shrek series!), the move to the dark side is refreshing.
