Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) Movie Review

Thanks to Hitz FM, I manage to catch the premiere screening of Kung Fu Panda 2 yesterday night at GSC Mid Valley.

The place was buzzing and crawling with swarms of people at GSC Mid Valley all queuing up to redeem a free movie ticket from The Star for a horror movie and so I slip into Chilis to have a meal before proceeding back to the cinema.

The show as most will know it, is about a Panda named Po. Now as a dragon warrior, Po is set to protect China's peace.

Along came a certain peacock who's from Po's past as a baby, Lord Shen, who came to seek revenge in attaining as the emperor of China. He was supposed to be in line of the throne until he overheard The Soothsayer speaking of a certain warrior in black and white that will bring the doom of Lord Shen. Hearing this, he commanded his army of wolves to kill all pandas but Po's parents manage to stow Po away and that's where he was adopted by a goose.

Hearing the danger that bestow upon China, Po and the Furious Five head over to stop Lord Shen. But can they defeat the mighty weapon that was created while the legends aren't able to?

Although I highly anticipated this movie, I somehow find it short to my amusement.
The movie was rather short and predictable to my taste, funniest bits were already in the trailers but I'm surprised with the many big names doing the voices for the movie. Somehow, is it worth it watching at movie theaters? It's a nay for me.

But, I heard a lot of people enjoyed the movie. So it might be that my expectations for the movie is just too high. In my personal opinion, I give it a 2.5 stars out of 5.
