Back on the big stage screen after a nearly five-year hiatus (not including the television series spinoff), the Po and the Furious Five still have all the right moves on the screen in Kung Fu Panda 3 is usually nice, great looking entry in the Oscar-nominated franchise.
While the story-line, in which the dumpling-Downing Dragon Warrior Jack Black reunited with his biological father, not quite fulfill their prophecy, dramatically speaking, visually says as it’s pretty impressive – one of those rare animated features that actually fully justifies the 3D glasses.
Expect the production of DreamWorks Animation (released under 20th Century Fox) again to raise a strong business in the country and at the international level, especially in China.
A new adventure is to expect the Po, to fill the shoes of their favorite teacher Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), educational aspects thinner than Kung Fu to Tigress (Angelina Jolie Pitt), Monkey (Jackie Chan), the Mantis (Seth Rogen), Crane (David Cross) and Viper (Lucy Liu), with less than promising results, as expected.
Interrupting new task surprise Lee (Bryan Cranston), his larger-than-life long-lost father, and the subsequent strength of the connection is not quite sit well with the adoptive father Mr. Ping (again played by scene- stealing James Hong).
Again, keeping a good balance of action and character-driven humor returned KFP2 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson, separating the addition of television credits here with Alessandro Carloni; screenwriters Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger made it three-peat by providing a script that stays true to cute characters, even if the message is “it takes-a-village” does not correspond to hit the necessary emotional strings.
The film directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni and produced by Melissa Cobb. Music composed by Hans Zimmer.
