Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)

1st View
Venue: Alamo South Lamar

While I'd have preferred to have seen it in 2D, I found myself thoroughly enjoying Kung Fu Panda 2. In fact, I think I like it more than the first film. Kung Fu Panda touched gingerly on a few genre tropes (the personifications of the various fighting styles and the master/bumbling student relationship), but the sequel, having the benefit of working with now pre-established characters, is able to focus on being an quest-centric martial arts epic. Despite the fact that it's animated, the fight sequences are absolutely remarkable. The animation on the peacock villain is stunning.

Rating: 8/10 Atkins
