A weekend is great when it is filled with awesome movies. It has been a while since my last Monday Movie Review, not that I have any real authority in deciding what is good and what is not.
The first was Kung Fu Panda 2, the sequel to the highly successful, enjoyable and awesome Kung Fu Panda 1. The great news for fans is that the cast did not lose their shine after the first.
While it was in every sense of Po’s fav word, awesome, I did find myself drifting in and out of sleep at times. It might not be the movie though and it could be my accumulated lack of sleep. The only gripe I had with the movie was probably the recycled development of the plot. But then again, all kung fu movies are pretty much the same.
I must say that I had doubts about the movie when I first heard about it. After all, the last X-Men Trilogy did not end too well. I was surprised though that X-Men First Class was very well done. George Lucas could learn a thing or two from this movie if he wants to make another movie about the origins of the villain.
Although I don’t remember some of the characters in the movie, or some of the storyline, I guess they can’t follow the comic exactly. But the cast played their roles almost to perfection and the pace of the movie was just nice. I did not fall asleep this time around although the RM18 ticket could have something to do with it :P
All in all, two very enjoyable movies over the weekend and I would definitely recommend anyone to catch it on the big screen.
