Kung Fu Panda 2 review : Way too hilarious

Po, and the Furious Five is back! This time, it's not only about the Kung Fu fighting but Po will be able to trace back who's his parents.

They are back, with a stronger cast, more interesting storyline and awesome graphic.

Po (Jack Black) and the Furious Five head up to Gongmen city to fight against Lord Shen (Gary Oldman) who create a deadliest weapon to vanish Kung Fu and rule the whole China. Other than fighting Lord Shen, Po needed to find out who's his real parents after he knew that Mr. Ping is not his father (we all knew that!).

Mr. Ping and Po, what a lovely pair of father and son.

I gotta say that Kung Fu Panda 2 is freakin hilarious and I can't help myself by laughing from the beginning of the animation till the end. Obviously, we can see that the Furious Five getting better with Po than the first movie. And this time around, the director and the animation crews shows us the sentimental side of both Po and Tigress. How Po need to find out his real parents but yet he don't feel like hurting Mr.Ping, his goose dad's feeling. Oh god, I love Mr. Ping so much after this one. He's just so nice and funny.

When Mr. Ping first met with Po.

Baby Po, awwww so cute isn't it?

But, what grab my attention in Kung Fu Panda 2 is Soothsayer (Michelle Yeoh) and Lord Shen (Gary Oldman). Lord Shen is the baddies but he crack me up for a several times in the cinema. I don't know but in the end I found that Lord Shen looks so funny and foolish in some point. He's real funny especially the first time he met with Po. And of course, my laughing point fell at when Soothsayer keep eating Lord Shen's robe whenever Lord Shen didn't notice! And I don't know that Michelle Yeoh, the Soothsayer got a quite big part of role in this one. I love her character as well, funny but didn't lose the wise in her.

Lord Shen killer moves.

Well, I think Lord Shen is a really cool baddies in this one. I mean he got a real cool moves, he looks classy cool and beautiful when he got his feather open and throws out the feather dagger, I think that's the name of the weapon. No doubt, in Kung Fu Panda 2, Gary Oldman is the one that master the voice-work for his character the best! The way he do his voice for Lord Shen is really like the master class. Pssss, he voice for Sgt Reznov in Call of Duty and also in Medal of Honor and some animation. So, no doubt he's good. Let's check out the behind the scene of his voicing for Lord Shen.

Cool, ain't it? The dragon dance scenes when they first reach Gongmen city is really hilarious too. Before I went to watch Kung Fu Panda 2, some of them refer this one is almost as good as Toy Story 3. I will say no for that, this one is good but Toy Story 3 still the best animantion so far. I don't find the part where Po separate from his parent is really touching, it's just go okay for me. I mean Kung Fu Panda 2 can be consider as a successful sequel and I can't wait for the next one.

Seriously, I can't find my inner peace when watching this film as it is way too hilarious. Nice flick, worth to catch it for the second time.

(PS : I wish they will bring back Lord Shen for the third one, i mean the last scene didn't really show that he's ald dead right? Michelle Yeoh first voicing experience get a PASS from us. Well done, Datuk! )
