Kung Fu Panda 3 get the distinction for basically being the biggest movie ever to open domestically in the week of January. The movie was originally slotted for December 23rd, then being first shifted to March 18th and finally being bounced up to January 29th 2016.
There is a reason behind such changes as if the movie being release before Chinese New Year. There is no better time to open a movie than the weekend before a holiday since the presumption of the holiday bumping will lessen the second weekend drop.
Enough of chit chat, let’s go to the review of Kung Fu Panda 3
It may read as an insult but to be honest, I would like to me to compare Kung Fu Panda 3 with X-Men: The Last Stand or Spider-Man 3 since they share a misfortune of being merely okay installments that were proceeded by two critically-acclaimed predecessors.
Kung Fu Panda 3 movie’s story picks up on Kung Fu Panda 2’s cliffhanger with the discovery of Shun Li (Bryan Cranston), Po’s father surviving the massacre of the panda clans. He is now aware that his son, Po (Jack Black) survives as well. Their reunion comes at an awkward time with Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) announcing his retirement from teaching and anointing Po as the new instructor of the Furious Five. In a meanwhile, the evil Kai (J.K. Simmons) escapes from the underworld and begins defeating various kung fu masters, Po learns that only a warrior mastering of chi can defeat this threat. Po on his way to his newfound panda family with a purpose of learning the way of mastering chi.
Kung Fu Panda 3 movie is a visual marvel with DreamWorks once again proving that they are the absolute best when it comes to using 3D in animation to enhance their visual storytelling. It’s worth the price of 3D admission for the imagery alone.
The first two movies had wonderfully fleshed out and in-depth villains. In Kung Fu Panda, Tai Lung (Ian McShane) seems to be Anakin Skywalker and his emotional beef with Shifu would-be Obi Wan Kenobi added real oomph to the otherwise conventional “fish out of water becomes the proverbial chosen one” narrative. For Kung Fu Panda 2, the movie beat We Need to Talk about Kevin with a painfully humanizing tormented peacock (Gary Oldman) whose parents were forced to cast him away after he committed an act of genocide. This time, in Kung Fu Panda 3, J.K. Simmons is doing fine as the ancient evil spirit of Kai escaping from the spirit realm to collect the “chi” (souls) of the remaining kung fu masters. That character is barely fleshed out and comes off as a glorified villain of the week.
