Kung Fu Panda 2 (PG)

★★★☆☆

This follow-up delivers more heart than laughs. Cuddly Po (voiced by Jack Black) is now an accomplished Dragon Warrior, meting out justice with his mad kung fu skillz. But there is a new threat, a peacock named Lord Shen (Gary Oldman) who has a new weapon that could be the end of kung fu. While there aren’t enough great lines for Black and the rest of the all-star voice cast, the chases are 3-D animated wonders, the martial arts brawls are epic and the scrip has an impressive heart with an appealing Buddhist bent. Highly satisfying.
