Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) – A Quick Capsule Review

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
This is strange.  A trilogy of animated films that, for the most part, are probably more consistent than almost ANY other trilogy of movies I’ve ever seen.  Seriously.  Okay so it’s far from high art of the heady heights of Toy Story but man Kung Fu Panda 3 knocks it out the park once again.  Great voice cast, stunning animation and a sense of fun & adventure often missing from these types of films, this was a pleasant surprise and highly recommended.

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Kung Fu Panda 2 is an exceptionally made animated film with possibly one of the best voice casts ever put on screen.  A great sequel which, from a technical point of view, steps the franchise up to a new level.  It’s a slight shame then that with a darker story a lot of the originals charm and wit is lost.  That doesn’t make it bad in any way – far from it – BUT you can’t help but think throughout that the original was just a much more enjoyable film.  Kids will love it but beware this is a lot darker than you may be expecting.

Best Bit: Inner peace.
