    A Great Animated Sequel and then 'almost some'

    If you like to fill your movie treasure chest with animated gems, then Kung Fu Panda 2 is more than just a worthy film to include. This edition with the new character box art is worthy to own despite some supplement flaws. To avoid spoilers, this outstanding sequel follows the original as Po uncovers more of his origin while he and the Furious Five face a new ruthless villain, Lord Shen. Now other than the movie being more emotionally and in a story aspect expansive from the first film, the movie looks flawless and beautiful in stunning HD as its culmination of 3-D, 2-D animation and scenes with Chinese Shadow puppetry will illuminate your television with artistry and spectacle. Sound quality is exceptionally incredible from the BluRay format so your ears will be pleased. Now, you'll get both DVD and BluRay within this pack, but since it is included with a Digital Copy, you will be somewhat disappointed. Prior to this, an iTunes copy was in the previous edition so instead of an HD iTunes copy to update the combo pack, buyers will receive a Ultraviolet redemption code. Another minor inconvenience, the DVD is also a digital copy disc for iTunes so don't try to redeem it from the code included, its not compatible. Regardless, Kung Fu Panda 2 in this new copy is still highly recommendable to own. Fans of the series and casual movie consumers will be enthralled by the BluRay format and its supplements.

    I wasn't entirely sure how I would feel about this movie, but since I had a free promo code, I figured I would get it! I am not typically a fan of Jack Black but I had heard good things about this movie. This movie was hilarious! As I said before, I had no expectations for it, so that most likely helped. It was a great comedy mixed with emotion and action, playing to all ages. Jack Black is the perfect actor to play Po. Po is a character that everyone can relate to as he laughs at himself, has misadventures, and dreams of what he wants. The character is actually developed very well, something that cannot be said about a lot of movies. I also really like the other two main characters played by Dustin Hoffman and Ian McShane as the other good and bad guys. I really like the landscaping and visual effects of this movie. The settings in China are so beautiful with the mountains and bodies of water.

    A Striking & Hilarious Original Animated Effort

    Jack Black is perfect for this type of thing-he brought his trademark comedic voice as well as the influence of his persona being imposed on Po-it meshed to make a character that was not only believable and likeable, but one that we could watch all day-the story hit all the basic points of an animated message film, but it was the characters of Po and Master Shifu, who was also fully inhibited by Dustin Hoffman, that made this movie so much fun to watch. The other characters didnt seem to be worth any time, especially the Furious Five, with such an impressive cast, not much was given for them to say or do, their action scenes were amazing to watch on the big screen though and all in all a great animated film.

    Only good CGI by Dreamworks worth anything

    Posted

    What an original movie and pleasant surprise!! I am not a big Dreamworks CGI fan. Yeah Shrek is popular but the laughs are based on 3rd grade humor and does not stand a chance to Bugs Life, Monsters Inc, and Finding Nemo. Kung Fu Panda is really a great movie and I loved the character development of this movie, especially the facial expressions of the master. I would never have guessed this was a Dreamworks movie with their awful CGI movies like Bee Movie, all Shrek movies, Antz, and Shark Tale. For example, Antz vs Bugs Life. Which is better? Dreamworks CGI movies are terrible. Kung Fu Panda is so good that it redeems Dreamworks, which I never thought would happen. KUNG FU PANDA kicks butt!!!!

    Upgrade from DVD

    I already owned the movie on DVD. I purchased it due to a sale and have slowly been upgrading and replacing DVD movies I have. The visual presentation is slightly improved over the DVD, which is not bad do to the up-scaling of modern Blu-ray players. The sound, however, is definitely more rich and dynamic with a better LFE channel than the DVD. It will play very nicely on a capable sound system, with those having better performing subwoofers getting the most bang for their buck. The movie itself is excellent with a great story and many themes for kids and adults alike. A must own if it is not a part of your movie library.

    One of my favorite movies!

    Thiis movie is fantastic. At first, for me it was one of those movies where you don't really pay attention to the trailer. A "wait until it comes out on DVD" movie. But then I saw it and it was great! It's so witty and hillarious! You'll fall in love with the characters (Master Ooogway is my favorite). It has a famous cast including Angelina Jolie and Jack Black as the main character. They're such great actors that you don't even link the character to them, which I was worried about. The animation is perfect and the plot is extremely creative. I can watch this movie over and over - it's become one of my favorites!

    As always, DreamWorks continues to produce great entertainment for the whole family. Kung Fu Panda is funny, brilliant and looks even more stunning in 3D! 3D movies are a big hit in our home and it's a shame that those of us who supported this tech are getting less and less material available to us. If you have and like 3D…continue to support it as long as you can…I've heard its huge overseas, so buying region free imports is still better than nothing. God Bless!

    Bigred7078

    Ok folks this is a movie the ENTIRE family will enjoy!!!!! I just loved it and im 22 years old haha!!! The line up of main character voice overs is awesome: Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Lucie Lou, Angelina Jolie, and more!!! I know this is an animation the the Picure Quality is perhaps the best i have seen. The texture details in walls and rocks and on the characters themselves is insanely good! For the audio aspect this is perhaps the best surround mixing i have ever heard!!! This is my reference disk for sure. I highly recommend this to ALL ages! Watch it, laugh, and enjoy!!!

    One Word ... Jack Black

    Initially, when I heard about this film, I didn't think that I would enjoy it as much as I did. It has all of the humor that you would expect from a Dreamworks movie as well as the action that you would need to satisfy the adults going to the film. While it is geared towards little kids, it has a great message about living up to your expectations and not letting fear stand in the way of who you can become. You will not be disappointed in viewing this movie multiple times.

    I hate to be one of those who remark on a film's "message," but I thought Po's adventure and journey of discovery showed how its important to believe in yourself and not give up on your dreams. And like I said, the message was SHOWN and not PREACHED over and over like some mindless animated features do when the writers are lazy and the producers underestimate the intelligence and maturity of the viewing audience. Great movie and hilarious. Buckets of great extras too!

    A Terrific Kid Movie!

    Posted
    Jovy

    This is an excellent family film. If you like kung fu movies or comedies, Kung Fu Panda is the movie for you. This film features good voice work from Jack Black, Angelina Jolie and Dustin Hoffman. The animation is beautiful. DreamWorks delivers with this animated tale, full of rich, beautiful color and sharp, eye-popping animation. The characters are entertaining and Po is endearing and loveable, a hero everyone will want to root for. Thankfully, this is a film that both the kiddies and the adults can enjoy.

    Enjoyable 3D movie

    This review is for the 3D version of the first Kung Fu Panda movie. Although this movie came out ten years ago (2008) and was quite a big hit, I never got around to it before. Now Best Buy is selling it for $9.99 so I picked it up and it exceeded my expectations. It is fun and has great visuals, so it's definitely worth it if you love 3D. Obviously you need to have a 3D TV and 3D player to view it in 3D.

    Wonderful movie for the family to enjoy. A story of a panda who realizes he is more than what he believes. He is chosen. He learns martial arts and winds up working with a team that really doesn't want him around. His teacher doesn't want him around. Poe is a wonderful character. It's worth watching many times over. The story: A bear, the search for the chosen one. A teacher learning a new way to help a student. The final battle.

    I picked this up on a whim because best buy had a good sale on their 3d titles. My boys are at the right age to enjoy this movie (5 and 7) and I get to utilize my 3D. That effect works well on this movie. The movie itself has a good message of believing in yourself and doing your best, with not to scary or crude jokes. Worth a look at buying if you do not already own a copy.

    Jack Black as Po makes this movie

    The animation, great. The story, fun. The humor, appropriate. But the one element of this film that keeps having me re watch it is jack black's performance as Po. This is the movie that is great for kids and even entertaining for adults. This movie doesn't have those tears in eye moments that some other animated movies have, but in its solid form, it's a great movie that I will continue to watch and enjoy as an adult.

    Pros: The passive 3D (this title has medium-high level) on an OLED & 7.1 via DTS Neaural X adds more fun factor experience on a calibrated 11.2 (7.2.4) system! It had a handful amount of funny moments. Digital copy. Dreamworks didn’t disappoint!! Cons: No slipcover

    Iconic Movie on Blu-ray

    Love this film. It is one of those kinds of movies that come once every decade to put it's mark on the movie industry. It goes neck and neck with the other animation flick of that year - Wall-E This movie had no competition with flops of that year: The Happening, Speed Racer, 88 Minutes, the relatively unkown Indiana Jones movie, and the worst of the Daniel Craig 007 movies, Quantum of Solace...

    The real reason to bought this is that it come with a promo code for up to 7.50 towards the purchase of Kung Fu Panda 3 movie ticket, It also comes with Fox Digital HD Redemption code. I redeemed mine using Vudu, It redeemed as Standard definition instead of High definition as it was supposed to. I reported this issue to Fox ahd Vudu and have been waiting two weeks now with no resolution in sight.

    The best animated movie of the year!

    Arnoldgolfer

    This was the first animated movie I watched on blu-ray with my family and we were blown away by the graphics of the film. I could see every strand of hair on the characters and details were very rich and colorful. The characters are cute and funny and the story brings a nice message at the end of the movie. Overall great movie for the family and a very enjoyable film.
