|Guess who is back!|
Kung Fu Panda 3 Review – Our favourite dragon warrior is back on the big screen once again.
|Po and Li reunited!|
Serenity at the Valley of Peace is disturbed as just Po (voiced by Jack Black) reunites with his biological panda father Li (Bryan Cranston) which cause a discomfort with his adopted Dad, Mr. Ping (James Hong). It is later reveal that supernatural villain Kai (J.K. Simmons) have been stealing other Kung Fu Master’s chi is ready to wreak havoc across China. Po agrees to follow his father back to ‘Panda village’ to learn how to live like an actual Panda while trying the master the power of chi. As one after another Kung Fu Master lose their chi to Kai, it’s up to Po to stop the mayhem. Will Po truly become not just a dragon warrior and save the day once again?
|New baddie in the block|
With an already existing impressive assemble of voice cast, addition of an Oscar winner and nominees (J.K. Simmons, Bryan Cranston and Kate Hudson) lend their voice talent makes thing merrier. That however is also a down point as other remaining characters getting fewer lines. I could only count few words by Jackie Chan playing the monkey and even Dustin Hoffman ends up playing second fiddle this time around. Beside the flooding of new roles, I have no other complain because this is fun ride from the beginning. The music, the animation, the colour is once again at its level best capturing the essence of China. There is also a lesson to be learned about family value along with teaching not to be greedy both applicable for kids and adults alike.
Despite the survival of Kung Fu Panda as a three-quell, I think it’s about time Po and the rest of Furious Five retire before becoming obsolete with ridiculous storyline in the future. The third instalment is just enough to make you love but also leave the legendary Dragon Warrior as one of the best animation ever produced. I know I will remember the Panda-monium (pun intended) created by a cuddly Panda called Po!
|3rd and final outing, hopefully.|
Trivia - Four of Angelina Jolie's children, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, Pax Jolie-Pitt, Knox Jolie-Pitt and Zahara Jolie Pitt, are voice extras in the scene when Po talks to the pandas about a game plan.
