The Sublime Syncretism of Kung Fu Panda 2 (F3M Reviews)
内容Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) continues the fun, excitement and humor of the original film. This time around, though, director Jennifer Yuh Nelson and her crew at DreamWorks Animation have plussed the proceedings in ways that pay greater tribute to the Hong Kong martial arts films that serve as inspiration for the KFP series.
Join journalist and critic Dan Persons as he explores how syncretism -- the process of incorporating outside influences into an established form to create something new and unique -- was applied to this entertaining blend of family-friendly action and comedy, and how the medium of computer-generated animation transforms a classic action genre into visionary entertainment.
