ENTERTAINMENT: ‘Panda 2’ packing even more punch

June 9, 2011

Who says animated movies are just for the adolescent crowd? Dreamworks’ newest sequel released May 26, once again has proven that movie lovers of all ages can relate to a Kung Fu-fighting, dumpling-loving panda bear.
Yes, I love action, adventure, romance and comedy with live actors and actresses, but I have found that an amazing animation can inspire the viewer just as much, and even bring a tear to the eye. And that is exactly what Kung Fu Panda 2 brings to the screen: emotion, action, adventure, and a surprising deep plot and sophisticated characters.
