Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom is the sequel to Kung Fu Panda. Shocking. The second film will have stars Jack Black and Angelina Jolie return to voice Po and Tigress, and original Panda director Jennifer Yuh will also return for the sequel.
The second film picks up where the first left off, with Po (Jack Black) as the Dragon Warrior, but wait! A new evil arrives (gasp) and he must find a way to defeat it, for it has uncovered a weapon that is unblockable, even by Kung Fu.
Who’s Kung Fu Panda 2 For?
PG, for sweet animal on animal action. I mean the kung fu, perv.

What’s Good About It?
Kid’s movies today are a whole lot better than when I was a kid. Seriously, Pocahontas? Okay, so Aladdin rocked, but kid’s movies today are actually enjoyable for adults. Especially Pixar, which this film isn’t. D’oh.
What’s Bad About It?
Jack Black is known for his physical comedy, so his VOICEWORK here must be stellar, and Angelina Jolie is known for how hot she is, so yet again her VOICEWORK was an obvious choice for the film. On a side note, I like to cast things like a retarded monkey child too.
Our Clever Prediction
I’m gonna enter the movie with my magic ticket that I stole from that kid in Last Action Hero, and a panda will escape from the movie land and go on a butt-kicking spree. Unfortunately, he will have to be put down via blowtorch in front of a bus full of children. They will ask, “Why?” Your only answer will be a single tear.
Other than that, it looks great!
