Kung Fu Panda 2

Like its predecessor, Kung Fu Panda 2 is chock-full of big-name actors. Unlike its predecessor, Kung Fu Panda 2 attempts a storyline and some characterisations between the slapstick and action sequences.

Gary Oldman adds to his villain filmography as Shen, an evil gunpowder-wielding peacock; we find out about the Po’s past, and there are some touching moments between him and his adoptive father.

While I’m still skeptical of anthropomorphic animals in a pastiche of Asian martial arts movies, I enjoyed Kung Fu Panda 2 as an entertaining diversion.
