Movie Review: Kung Fu Panda 3!
Po has learned so much since the first film and pretty much content about fighting bad guys and enjoying his bowl of ramen, but things would continue to evolve and change with that everyone is also affected by this in a very optimistic way. The level of narrative shifts not only focuses on revelations where he came from it also takes a look at how the other characters has grown.
Thematically its always going to be Po’s story, but when you look beyond that it also shares the other characters evolution. Tigress has become not only one of the best of the five kung fu masters, but she has shown that a rough edge character can be like human in so many levels of empathy and by the time you see this film she has already known and accepted that Po was the chosen one that her masters have foreseen.
JK Simmons breathe life to a new villain Po has never encountered before, but unlike the previous villains this one has a lot of humor that keeps the story interesting for the younger viewers as well as the adults who accompanied their children.
It’s definitely funnier the third time around, but also gives you a look at where Po actually came from and the trailers have not spoiled anything. But it gives you the idea regarding the pandas in this film and they certainly adored eating just like the lead character for most of the “Kung Fu Panda” series even on television.
Overall it was a ‘fun’ “Kung Fu Panda 3” like no other, but if it weighs down to epic-ness the second film had better weight leaving some revelations about Po, but with the third film he still have a surviving relative besides his adopted father. This is more closely a family themed sequel that was good, but not as spectacular as the last one though it stands on its own.
“Kung Fu Panda 3” levels up the awesomeness of Po and the five masters of the martial art. You can’t say this is the last of the series, but as some would be optimistic see that it’s just the beginning.
Its now playing in Philippine cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox locally distributed by Warner Bros Picture Studios!
RATED: A for Awesome.
