As a fan of Kung fu panda, I would like to bring some spotlight to this particular movie, as of now I wasnt expecting another sequel after the amount of FAIL the first movie managed to give. Don't know what it is? here's a short review.**** Legend of a Rabbit *****
Check the trailer, on youtube. [link]
I would, from the bottom of my heart simply call it Kung Fu Rabbit
and mark it as a rip-off from Kung Fu Panda because of its HUGE similarity to Kung Fu Panda. Also, and also in my personal opinion, an anti KFP film. Now, this I would like to bring a short rant about this film in short sentences. The BAD guy is a panda
. This Panda eats meat. WHAT!? The panda is too muscular for a panda. The panda looks more like a bear. They created new
species with bad modeling. The action scene take MANY references from other movies, most i recognized from Advent Children. The cat is cute. But the rabbit is too dumb to tell she's a girl. If you think Po is annoying, the rabbit is damn
annoying. I can't tell what are they trying to prove. And Bad scripting... *shivers* Baaaaaad scripting.
Other than that, I respect the culture and mindset of the film as it takes roots from chinese RPG games and novel. Having played some myself, I do enjoy watching some of the skill moves, sword fight they used. END OF RANT.**** Present ******
Now, in 2015. The movie spawned a sequel. What the f-.. WAIT! HOLD ON! WAIT! I've seen the trailer. I would say, some of the landscape looks VERY familar again from KFP universe. But.... It MIGHT proves promising this time.. There's a lot more effort put on the background, and the rendering looks nicer. Again, the two (yes, there's two now) cats are cute. And the rabbit... looks more acceptable.

This is a good thing.. but the story is still a mystery...
