Kung Fu Panda 3 : Movie Review

“An enjoyable film for the entire family! Skadoosh!!” The general trend in movie sequels is that the worst is usually saved for last. Well, I’m glad to let you know that certainly isn’t the case with Kung Fu Panda 3. The Furious 5 return with Po, the Dragon Warrior facing two new challenges this time – learning to be a Panda and mastering the art of Chi. The film boasts of a stellar cast with the likes of Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan and Dustin Hoffman. But an X-factor has been introduced in this one.

Kung Fu Panda 3 : Movie Review

Bryan Cranston steals the show as Li, Po’s long lost dad. His brilliant voice acting does wonders to the chemistry between father and son. The animation is good and hits all the right notes with the kids. Don’t expect a Christopher Nolan plot here because you’re not going to get it!

In a nut shell, an evil warrior named Kai goes around stealing the chi (the power) of various Kung Fu masters and our hero is the only one who can stop him. Po reunites with his Dad (duh? Didn’t you see that coming at the end of Part 2?) and goes to the secret village of the Pandas to meet his relatives. His joy is short-lived as the bad guy is on his way. Time is short to master the art of Chi.

Another highlight of the film is it teaches us that we should never get comfortable doing ONLY what we CAN do. Hence, the new training responsibility that is thrust upon Po by his master. He initially stumbles, fumbles as expected but comes out with flying colors in the end. He trains the entire village of Pandas to fight taking into account their respective strengths, puts a plan in place and has a showdown with the villain Kai at the end. Jack Black is hilarious as usual. The film does not disappoint.

VERDICT: The kids will love it. A nice film for adults as well.
