Although a slightly over-dramatic ending holds the film back from greater heights, this is on the whole, quite enjoyable for kids as well as adults.

Animated movies especially, suffer the greatest drop in quality with sequels. But Kung Fu Panda 3 is a definite exception to the rule. The third instalment is just as quirky, funny and engaging as the first one.

Long on pandas but distinctly short of magic, humour and, notably, the sort of visual spectacle we've come to expect.

There's nothing wrong with #3, but there's nothing especially delightful for surprising about it, either. And it's definitely not original.

The story moves along nimbly, punctuated by beautiful moments of family bonding.

January 3, 2017
Building on character development and plot points from the first two films, this story manages to feel both like a complete tale in and of itself and like the successful continuation.

Directors Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Alessandro Carloni give Po's adventures the same gorgeously stylized look as in the previous films and find good humor in Po's unexpected return to his fellow pandas.

While the newness of the original film is long gone, this third installment is not just the culmination of the series but the best of them... and the perfect place to stop.

Kung Fu Panda 3 concludes on a definite high note, filled with eye-popping animated set pieces as well as thrilling story beats that I was perfectly entertained by.

Kung Fu Panda 3 revisits the same themes as its predecessors ... But that familiarity doesn't lessen the film's emotional impact and solid laughs.

It's hard to be cynical about Kung Fu Panda 3-it's part of a series that is so good-hearted and fun and it clocks in at a loose 90.
July 10, 2016
A moving character study and an exciting action-adventure-comedy, and it is also desperately gorgeous.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

From the colourful, psychedelic realm of the spirits to the playground-like panda kingdom, the art here is stylish and arresting.

May 12, 2016
A cynical cherry-picked mish-mash of China's spiritual treasures for Hollywood's bottom line, rather than the sincere children's bedtime story it should be? It's still good.

Part three gives a wider canvas to one of the best characters in the franchise, the high-strung and business-oriented Mr Ping.
April 6, 2016
One of the most pleasing franchises in animation, Po and his stalwart companions mix Western and Eastern tropes together to create a pleasing amalgam with some of the industry's best animation, both traditional and modern.

A plot as patchy as a panda doesn't mar the enjoyment of this third look at the animated high-kicking bear and his fighting animal friends. The animation ... is super-smooth.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is no game-changer, but it's a solid entry into a consistently fun and funny animated franchise.
April 1, 2016
It may serve up exactly the same mix of mayhem, noodles and dumplings as the first two films in the series, but Kung Fu Panda 3 is still energetic and wildly entertaining fare.

Both the writing and the animation are especially strong this time around, drawing in bigger themes while still keeping things both thrilling and very silly.
