Review: Kung Fu Panda 3

Po (Jack Black) is back bigger, bolder and funnier than ever in the third instalment of the hit animated franchise, Kung Fu Panda 3.

While most subsequent movies following a hit often lack the original’s charm and quality, this film is so entertaining that it might just be the best of all three.

The questions surrounding Po’s birth and missing family are answered with the appearance of his long-lost father (Bryan Cranston). Along with both of his dads, Po journeys to the incredibly cute secret panda village, hoping that discovering his roots will help him become the teacher Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) wants him to be, and enable him to defeat the evil Kai (J.K. Simmons), the warrior from the spirit world who is out to destroy the world.

Can Po train a team of roly-poly dumpling-loving pandas to defeat his nemesis and save China? You’ll have to see the film to find out.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is visually spectacular (see it in 3D for the full experience), and takes viewers on an emotional ride that touches on relatable themes like being adopted, the importance of family, and finding where you fit in. Perhaps most importantly, the film emphasises the importance of truly knowing and understanding yourself. Some good lessons for us all underneath the slapstick comedy, witty lines and truly stunning animation.

PG (for martial arts action and some mild rude humour)
