Animated Action: Po and the Furious Five return to do battle with an evil peacock obsessed with becoming the ruler of China.
Following the events of the first film, Po (voice of JACK BLACK) has become firmly entrenched as the fabled Dragon Warrior, fighting enemy threats alongside his former idols, the Furious Five: Tigress (voice of ANGELINA JOLIE), Mantis (voice of SETH ROGEN), Crane (voice of DAVID CROSS), Viper (voice of LUCY LIU), and Monkey (voice of JACKIE CHAN). Po, though, learns that he still needs the tutelage of Kung Fu Master Shifu (voice of DUSTIN HOFFMAN) in finding his "inner peace."

Po's inner turmoil is ratcheted up when his father, Mr. Ping (JAMES HONG), tells him he is adopted and that the identity of his real parents is a mystery. Po starts to have brief flashbacks and even nightmares of his real mother and father under attack by some unseen force.

Meanwhile, a great evil arises in China in the form of the power-hungry peacock Lord Shen (voice of GARY OLDMAN), who has ignored the warnings and advice of the Soothsayer (voice of MICHELLE YEOH) and imprisoned kung fu Masters Ox and Croc (voices of DENNIS HAYSBERT and JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME, respectively).

Shen's family cast him out years earlier for seeking to transform their beloved Chinese fireworks into explosive weapons so that he could rule the entire land unchallenged. As Po and the Furious Five rush to fight Shen and his forces, it soon becomes clear that Po and Shen's paths have crossed before and the conqueror holds the key to the panda warrior finding out who he really is.

Yes, absolutely. The first one was a major hit with children and families, and the on-air promotions are inescapable.
For sequences of martial arts action and mild violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
