KUNG FU PANDA 3 (2016) Review
Directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Alessandro Carloni

The third and probably last installment of one Dreamworks Animation’s most successful franchise, Kung Fu Panda 3 doesn’t go far from its predecessor when it comes to its vibe and treatment. From its colorful and well-designed characters and setting to its story that bursts humor and fun. It is also a great deal that all of the cast from Parts 1 and 2 remained only Rebel Wilson who was supposed to be in part 2 had a problem and got replaced by Kate Hudson but it’s not a big deal.

It is still filled with colorful characters, action-packed sequences, and humor that never goes old. Kung Fu Panda 3 is a fine addition or finale to its franchise that boast wonders from animation to story. The franchise has this unique animation, inspired from Chinese characters and milieu, Dreamworks doesn’t fail to amaze its viewers from the amazing scenery the story is wrapped upon.

The cast that voices its characters are perfect and the story is for the whole family as it is not short on humor, fun and action sequences. The scoring though feels uneventful, even the fight scenes are scored ineffective but thanks to its upbeat and vibrant story, you just want to get some more from the martial artist panda and his friends. Po is a very relatable character and his admiration gets you because its humble and kind-hearted character. No wonder he’s loved by every one and his journey will always be remembered because of his pure heart.

You’ll savor every scene done tastefully and its humor just cracks you right. Kung Fu Panda 3 may not be as good as its first part but almost everything about this third installment is great that you will wished this isn’t the last one.
