This is my review of Kung-fu Panda 3 (Spoiler free)
Director(s): Alessandro Carloni & Jennifer Yuh
Cast: Jack Black, Academy Award Nominee Bryan Cranston*, Angelina Jolie, 2 time Academy award winner Dustin Hoffman**, Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons***, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen.
Plot: Continuing his "legendary adventures of awesomeness", Po must face two hugely epic, but different threats: one supernatural and one a little closer to home.
The Dragon Warrior returns in the silliest and the darkest of the trilogy this time to face spirit warrior Kai (Simmons), who has returned to the mortal world to capture the Chi of all the warriors in China. The first movie back in 2008 was dark and thrilling and really quite fun, the second (2011) promised to be darker but didn't quite deliver.
With the same story as it's predecessors between good and evil this one is outrageously funny and sometimes a little bit silly the third and final film is fun for all the family, here are some points of why I think this film is a must see:
Hilarious Dialogue: The film has hilarious moments from start to finish especially between Po and Li-Shan (Cranston) some of the moments just made me burst out laughing.
Visually Stunning: Every single one of these films has had a gorgeous but this one probably has the best with some the amazing colours that just burst out the screen, the part that really stands out is the spirit world that just has an outstanding feel that just gives you a warm feeling.
This film just feels a warm hug that just comes out of nowhere Jack Black has really outdone himself this time as the lovable panda.
The one main fault and it's tiny is that some of the jokes go on for longer than they should but you should get over that.
The furious five have returned and this time better than ever.
This film is a must see for all the family especially with it's recent success in China, this film is worth every penny. Remember the secret panda village is waiting for you. A truly outrageous animation and a must see 9/10 (4.5 out of 5).
Verdict: Rather than the cynical "one last grab" of the series, Kung Fu Panda might actually be the best. Also this might be worth going to watch in 3D.
