Film Review: Kung Fu Panda 3


Share This Article:


DreamWorks’ third instalment of Kung Fu panda is out- and proves to be great entertainment for children and grown-ups alike.

Kung Fu Panda 2 ended with a intense scene of Po’s dad - thought deceased - well and alive, mystifyingly stating atop a mountain: “my son is alive…” Leaving all of us aching to know what would come next.

The answer is a beautifully animated third film, which mixes DreamWorks’ modern animation with more classic, hand-drawn one for flashback scenes. The 3D is well-done, and Hans Zimmer’s score also gives the film a more epic dimension. This is fitting, since the film is about Po’s quest to finally fulfil his destiny as the great “Dragon Warrior”.

To accomplish this journey, Po goes back to his roots by living amongst his in the Secret Panda village. There, adorable baby and elder pandas all live in harmony, and all share the common traits of a love for food, laziness, and celebration. Sounds like a student hall.

The ending is slightly over the top and confusing (then again, I don’t think I should judge a film about anthropomorphic, kung Fu fighting animals based on its realism). However, it really makes the Kung Fu Panda trilogy go out with a bang. In the end, all three films are really entertaining and contain stunning animation. In my opinion, this trilogy is one of the strongest one out there, at least in the animated film category.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is out in UK cinemas now.
