Kung Fu Panda 2

Kung Fu Panda 2 is an action movie disguised as a family movie. It’s completely family friendly, but completely blockbuster at the same time. And hilarious! From the first scene to the climax, it barely pauses to catch its breath, seamlessly weaving the plot lines together into an epic finale where Po avenges his mother, his species and saves China all in one go! And of course, there’s a twist at the end to make room for another sequel ;)

And though short and sweet, that’s pretty much what I thought of it! I will pause to dwell on the scene where Po finally is able to remember the entire event of his infancy where his mother hid him and then sacrificed herself for him, drawing the enemy in another direction, away from where he was hidden. It’s a plain and simple plot line, used in countless stories, but as surely as it reflects God’s love for us, it’ll never get boring! Jesus is the man…

I’ll also say that this film used 3D technology really well. Usually I commend 3D movies on their restraint and non-gimmickyness, but in Kung Fu Panda 2 they really went all out with the 3D and it paid off!
