Continuing his “legendary adventures of awesomeness”, Po must face two hugely epic, but different threats: one supernatural and the other a little closer to his home. (c) IMDb
In all honesty, I wasn’t expecting too high for this flick since I felt it lost steam and momentum after the sequel’s not so strong and impressive plot but the third movie surprised me. It was entertaining as the origin movie was. This third episode of the franchise gave more sense and continuity to the story line. It has the charisma it needs for this to be successful in all types of moviegoer.
Kung Fu Panda 3 has the right combination of humor, lightness and seriousness. The filmmakers excellently delivered the message well to the audience and provided the necessary messages.
What struck me the most is the obvious use of more colors in each frames and scenes. The sequel is darker but this really exudes a lot of positivity. The action sequences and its choreography is well executed and I commend the team for putting up a neat animated movie. The voices that put life into the characters were also brilliant, they stayed true to their character since the first film and especially the original cast… you can feel that they have really became bonded and synchronized like true ninjas, the chemistry of the cast was obvious and complimented each other but it would be better if they got more screen time. The soundtrack and scoring is never a question as it gave the movie some pump especially to those fighting scenes.
I will give the movie 4.3 out of 5 stars for its quality and entertainment though the pacing somehow became slow at times but it is forgiven.
