Kung Fu Panda 3 Movie Review


This movie was right on the same levels as the other ones.

There's not much to say about this movie other than it was good. Kung Fu Panda has a format in which it sticks to religiously that has a great turn around for them. Beyond the shows and short films, Kung Fu Panda does the one thing that most movies don't these days: they take their time in the making of the films. With three years between the first and second one, then five between the second and third films, Kung Fu Panda makes sure they have a story to tell and when they do they manage to tell them just right.

The cast was intact and everyone loves working on this movie. Seems like one of those films that just keeps connecting people together, especially since it doesn't demand them to always be present and making them seemingly every year. That kind of stability and continuity allows for the directors to keep things going in a positive direction story wise without having to find a replacement for characters and hoping no one notices they don't fit. The addition of Bryan Cranston as Po's father and J.K. Simmons as Kai, (the big baddie), was a nice touch to me and adds another mega name for the franchise that's already loaded with them.

There's not much to say about this film other than it gets a solid B+ from me. The one thing I really liked about this entry was the animation. It's always been on point but with the addition of the villain Kai and his thirst for stealing other master's chi makes for some pretty great sequences. Of course it had it's corny moments in the end as all kids movies do, but that was a nice touch and hopefully a setup for another sequel. Where they can go from here is a great question to be answered. But with the way that this franchise has be ran it's safe to say that they have a pretty good idea of where it's going.
