Goofs

Mr. Ping mentioned that he raised Po for 20 years before he told Po he was adopted. However, according to director Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Po is in his 20s and according to Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Scroll Po was a teenager 10 years ago. However, in Kung Fu Panda 2 Shen waited 30 years to rule over Gongmen City alongside his cannon, probably since then he started to use fireworks as a weapon and it's not even mentioned or shown that Shen began to use fireworks as a weapon years before or it was less than 30 years years ago he attacked the panda village and was exiled, although Shifu mentioned Po found inner peace at such a young age.

awesomeness achieved
8 March 2016 | by kieranbattamsSee all my reviews

Kung fu panda is a concept so ridiculous that we think to ourselves.. it is actually genius. Jack Black returns as the lovable Po, and shows us just why we missed him so much in the years we had to wait. These films always deal with acceptance and Kung Fu Panda 3 is no exception, with an added family element. I give praise for this for the simple reason that Bryan Cranston is AWESOME and really stands out in a movie that already has some brilliant stars, he was so funny and heartwarming as Po's biological father and makes a welcome addition to the cast.

The story follows Po as he is asked to teach the furious 5 so Shifu can retire and master 'Chi'. After a bad session he meets his father by chance and finds out about a new supernatural threat from the spirit realm, played by the brilliant J.K Simmons. He adds his own stamp to this character and gives us a badass villain, like Cranston becoming a welcome edition. Po embarks on a journey to a secret panda village to himself master 'Chi' and take out Kai for good. So for a start the story is brilliant, it keeps everyone entertained and never lingers on for too long. The members of the furious 5 however do get less screen time, even Angelina Jolie's Tigress although she does play the biggest role of the 5. The standout for the limited screen time he has is Seth Rogen's Mantis. I don't know what it is but i love this character and wanted more of him.

If you are a fan of the other films in the Kung Fu Panda franchise like i am then you won't be disappointed. The film manages to stay on par with both previous films and has all the humour and kung fu action you can expect from it. If the franchise ended here i would be happy, i would love more from the characters and the world built around them, but i really don't want the franchise to outstay it's welcome at the same time. But anyway, go see Kung Fu Panda 3. It is much better than the forgettable London has Fallen and you won't regret it!
