What is there to say about Kung Fu Panda 2 other than it is another dose of pure awesomeness. Awesomeness that is so bright you might be blinded by its …. awesomeness. After watching Kung Fu Panda 2 in the theaters, I knew I wanted to have a copy on DVD so I could enjoy it at home as well. As of December 13, 2011, you can pick up Kung Fu Panda 2 on Blu-Ray and DVD for your family to enjoy.
About Kung Fu Panda 2
Sequels can be a tricky thing. Especially for movies that are as exceptional as Kung Fu Panda. Oftentimes, you’ll see sequels to great movies strive to top the predecessor, yet lose the innocence and fun that made the first movie so great in the process. That was not the case with Kung Fu Panda 2. This sequel was just as fun and exciting as the original.
In Kung Fu Panda 2, Po and the Furious Five must save China from a weapon that threatens the very existence of kung fu. During the movie, you discover just how “kung fu can stop a weapon that stops kung fu.” Just because this is a “animated film”, don’t think that this movie is just for kids. With lots of action, funny dialogue, and an engaging plot, Kung Fu Panda 2 will entertain both the young and the old (who are young at heart.)
The writers do an amazing job at keeping the attention of all ages. It’s intelligent, mature, funny, and silly all at once. It’ll make you laugh, it’ll make you cry. Who would’ve thought that a film such as Kung Fu Panda 2 could put you through such an exciting, emotional rollercoaster?
Once again, Jack Black and the other actors who voiced the characters of Kung Fu Panda 2, do a great job of conveying the emotion and the depth behind each character. For even more insight, make sure you check out “More Awesomeness” features on Disc 1, where you’ll get a peek at some deleted scenes and you get to see some of the actors on set.
As an extra bonus, the double DVD pack includes the new adventure, Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters. In this feature, you’ll get to learn more about kung fu legends Master Thundering Rhino, Master Storming Ox and Master Croc. Yes, even more awesomeness.
Not only does Kung Fu Panda 2 have all the humor, action, and kung fu to satisfy fans, but it also leaves you with a little taste of things that may be coming in the future. I won’t tell you what – you’ll have to discover that secret yourself. 😉
Kung Fu Panda 2 is available now on Blu-Ray and DVD. Make sure you grab the Kung Fu Panda 2 Awesome Double DVD Pack to get the bonus disc which includes Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters. You can buy the Double DVD pack in stores now or online on Amazon for $24.99.
