"Kung Fu Panda 2" by Jennifer Yuh


After the amazing Kung Fu Panda of 2008, here it comes its sequel with a new villain , none other than Gary Oldman's white peacock. The animation movie is clearly more dark and more focused in the potential background of Po's story, of course his father could not be a goose, pandas were killed because of a prophecy and he was the sole survivor. The past is told in flashes in some extraordinary way, I loved the graphics, it made me remember how one tale was told in "Harry Potter and the Death Hallows 1". It's not a novelty so it's not at first very exhilarating, because they have to take down the peacock because he has a weapon that can kill kung fu forever, however, the story is fluid and with some very funny parts, including the fact that the bad guy is funny even being so evil (well he is kind of misunderstood, he has the pride of a peacock anyhow), and Po is Po with some slow mental and action problems, despite that he has what it takes to be the dragon warrior and most important to achieve inner peace. The film does not disappoint as sequels always do, however very interesting I wonder how many good stories they will find...

Beware my friends, for there'll be a 3 for sure!
