We all know that Po is now living his life as the Dragon Warrior, now he must meet his first master villain.

This one is officially rated a PG for mild violence and martial arts. It is difficult to call a plump Panda, rhinoceros, and the other cartoon animals as martial arts. It is highly unlikely that any child would see any similarity to reality in their stunts. It also has several jokes about bodily functions, you know, those ones that we donäó»t allow at the dinner table, especially when guests are around. This parentäó»s movie advisory calls this one OK for most children. The movie has a strong message about courage, discipline and the ability to overcome evil with determination and high morals.

The trailer to this movie is absolutely hilarious. It is full of gags and stunts galore. It is non-stop comedy and follows the same format as the other Kung Fu Panda movies before it. This parental guide to the movies calls it A-OK for almost every one. The soundtrack includes the Black Eyed Peas, äóìPump Itäó, Queen, äóìWe Will Rock Youäó and other high driving, heavy pumping soundtracks. It is difficult to say that it has real value in teaching moral principles, but it is nonstop fun for the whole family. Yes, you can even take the little ones to this one, just put away your wok when you get home, just so they donäó»t get any ideas. HI-YA!
