Description: Po (Black Jack) now becomes The Dragon Warrior and embarks on a mission with new kung-fu masters for a battle against an old adversary with a new lethal weapon.
Review: The story brings us to Po’s life after he becomes a hero where he faces greater challenges and more action packed adventures alongside ingeniously contrived characters that makes the movie very interesting and fun to watch.
The movie’s quality is splendid and the story is very innovative. It celebrates tradition and culture; an appreciation of the ancient art of kung fu presented in a vibrant cinematography. The movie’s fight scenes are intricately scripted which brings the viewers to a theatrical dimension that defies the laws of gravity. But the dynamicity of the film is subdued by the eccentric character of Po who makes every dark moment lively. And as expected, the cast brings to the screen that natural sense of humor and ideality which perfectly match the characters’ personalities.
On the plus side, the movie is ultimately a film of valuable life lessons. It takes the viewers in a journey towards mastering one’s own life and a celebration of self-discovery. It teaches the audience about conquering one’s destiny and undermining the limits of one’s capabilities. It has this quasi-dramatic interlude unparalleled to that of a romantic film that gives the viewer a high empathic and pleasant sensation after watching. This soul-poking feature is what sets this comedy flick apart from other films created for the purpose – it never fails to deliver.
Kung Fu Panda 2 is a great family movie that both kids and grown-ups can enjoy. The said awesome movie is dated to hit theatres on May 26th this year.
