Over-all this is a good movie with the usual wit and fun that we loved from the first movie. The sounds and music were again wonderful taking us to the journey of our hero, Po (voiced by Jack Black) The support cast was again wonderful in lending their voices. Are the names of Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman and Lucy Liu not enough?
The movie somehow lacks in the kicking punch most of the viewers were expecting. The storyline was quite divided as it shifts from the struggles of villain, Lord Shen (Gary Oldman) to the personal search of Po of his real identity. It seemed that the focus was lacking in the movie. But that is forgivable as their stories seem to intertwine in the end. Now, in this new film as Po searches for his inner peace, we are taught a lot of great life lessons. It was evident in the film that they want to teach us to not live by the past but instead thrive in the present and look towards the future. Only when we accept our past are we truly free from that and will find inner peace.
I still enjoyed the movie by a lot. 4.5 out of 5 popcorns!
