Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom Of Doom

We almost come to the end of May but the Summer time just start to kick-off when big movie titles into the theatre. Here are the 2 new ones that I’ve watched over the two weekends; they are Pirates of the Caribbean IV and Kung Fu Panda 2. Here’s my review for both movies and I think they are cool at their own genre.

In Kung Fu Panda 2, Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five. But Po's new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. Po must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.

The storyline arc may seem a tad familiar to fans of the original, but Kung Fu Panda 2 offers enough action, comedy, and visual sparkle to compensate.

Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penélope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love-or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the "Queen Anne's Revenge," the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past.

It's shorter and leaner than the previous sequel, this Pirates runs on a non-stop storm of action sequences.
