Afraid that a second Kung Fu Panda movie might be as clumsy and awkward as Po? Yeah, so were we. But critics are pretty universally singing the praises of the sequel's "awesomeness."
"Once again, the DreamWorks team demonstrates that humor is the primary weapon in its arsenal."
— Peter Debruge, Variety
"The animation is elegant, the story is much more involving than in the original, and there's boundless energy."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"At times, Kung Fu Panda 2 suggests Bambi redone as an episode of Oprah. Yet it's a more-than-worthy sequel. "
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...this winning sequel to 2008's martial arts cartoon makes deft moves for a big-budget sequel — and is even warmly reminiscent of 1980's The Empire Strikes Back."
— Claudia Puig, USA Today
"...accomplishes the depressingly familiar mathematical trick of being both more and less than its predecessor."
— A. O. Scott, New York Times
