Kung Fu Panda 3

Rated PG / 1 hr 35 min / Action - Adventure

What is it about?

Po is living it up as the Dragon Warrior in the village. Every time there is a threat he runs through the village giving everyone a high five. This time the threat is to his stomach and the mission is to order breakfast. There is a dangerous threat to Po's dumpling eating record. It is another panda. This panda will break the record and tell Po "I AM YOUR FATHER". Now Po must train like he has never trained before. He must embrace his lazy pandaness to summon his chi. Then and only then he will be able to defend his dumpling eating championship against his evil father.

You will like it if...

You liked the previous Kung Fu Panda movies. Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogan, etc. is a star studded cast. If virtually every voice in this film sounds familiar it is because you have seen all of them in other films. The story is basically the same as every other Kung Fu Panda film. The fight scenes are just as interesting as the previous films with the addition of new animal characters. Light comedy is sprinkled into the script as with the previous iterations. There is just enough new stuff to feel like a new film even though the basic story is recycled. In all if you are a fan of the series there is no reason for you not to like this new one. It is more of the same without feeling like it is a tired old rehash of the same Kung Fu Panda.

Next Week

Hail, Caesar!, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, or whichever film you vote for. Vote early, vote often, vote in the comments or Godzilla will pick the movie! As always the movie selection is subject to change based on what is showing here in theaters.

Upcoming to DVD on February 2

  • Our Brand Is Crisis
  • Bridge of Spies - Tom Hanks so you know it's like chocolate.
  • Suffragette - Let's get militant about women's rights YAY! This is also good.
  • The Last Witch Hunter - No. Stop it. Vin Diesel is a good actor, but why this film? It is bad.
