How can you go wrong with that ensemble of talent? One thing that I enjoyed about this KFP franchise is the depth of Asian culture that surrounds each story. Not only that but the wisdom of it's characters and how it relates to the real world.... [Drifting on a memory about Master Oogway's lesson about the illusion of control from the original KFP]:
Oogway: My friend, the panda will never fulfill his destiny, nor you yours until you let go of the illusion of control.
[points at peach tree]
Oogway: Look at this tree, Shifu: I cannot make it blossom when it suits me nor make it bear fruit before its time.
Shifu: But there are things we *can* control: I can control when the fruit will fall, I can control where to plant the seed: that is no illusion, Master!
Oogway: Ah, yes. But no matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.
Shifu: But a peach cannot defeat Tai Lung!
Oogway: Maybe it can, if you are willing to guide, to nurture it, to believe in it.
Shifu: But how? How? I need your help, master.
Oogway: No, you just need to believe. Promise me, Shifu, promise me you will believe.
If this wasn't animated it would get way more respect than has been shown. I was surprised at the amount of people who have NOT seen this movie but enjoyed the first one... what gives?
The cinematography couldn't be any better maybe with the exception of Rango's beautiful scenery, depending on which kinds of scenery you prefer.
I have said this before but it is worth repeating... Animated movies are THEE best format to make 3D movies in. ESPECIALLY with this HI-DEF technology being pushed to the last pixel. You will find no better use of those recyclable 3-D glasses than for Kung Fu Panda 2!
With that said, this movie earns an A-, definitely worth your time and money.
