Week 23: Kung Fu Panda 2

In Celebration of school being out for the summer we took the kids to Kung Fu Panda 2.  My son has been wanting to see this movie.  We have the first one on DVD and I've seen it a gazillion times.  As far as cartoons go it's not a bad one to see over and over.  The second one was just as good.

I'll admit I probably wouldn't go see this movie if I wasn't taking a kid but it was really entertaining for adults.  It had a good plot and an underlying moral theme like most animated movies do these days.  Jack Black's voice is perfect for Po.  Speaking of voices, why is it that I can never hear Angelina Jolie's voice as Tigress?  It just doesn't sound like her. 

Anyway, the true test for this movie though is what my 6 year old son thought of it.  Like I said, he really liked the first one but he is just now getting into watching movies at a theater.  Normally when he watches movies at home he jumps to the parts he likes or stops watching when he gets bored.  Overall, he's getting really good in a theater.  But even if he likes the movie he'll usually ask if it's almost over about 3/4 of the way through.  For this one...he didn't ask once AND he was laughing the entire time.  I would say it was a hit.  And he even did a Kung Fu roll in the theater lobby afterwards.  Can't get better than that.

To Sum it up: Great voices, good story and funny for both adults and children. 


  1. I am glad its good. I want to take my kids soon. Maybe in July.
