Kung Fu Panda 3 is the third installment of the epic animated Kung Fu franchise. In my point of view, this movie is a successful blend of action, comedy and animation served with heart touching father-son scenes which was strong enough to warm my heart. Honestly, I had to fight back tears of joy throughout parts of the movie, especially the end. Some of the humor feels sillier compared to the plot, but eventually gets better as the conflict is developed.

Nevertheless, this is a family friendly movie that works very easily for kids. It conveys a philosophical message, which is not easy to forget.

“If you only do what you can do, you’ll never be better than what you are.”

“When will you realize the more you take, the less you have?”

“I’m not trying to turn you into me. I’m trying to turn YOU into YOU.”

In this adventure, Po, the lovable, clumsy, hilarious, hungry panda, becomes the master of the Furious Five. After a bad day of teaching, he reunites with his long lost father and discovers a secret village of pandas. Po, as the Dragon Warrior, has to master ‘Chi’, the energy which flow through all living bodies, to defeat the supernatural threat from the spirit realm.

Will Po be able to defeat Kai, the immortal beast of vengeance, by mastering ‘Chi’? Will he finally discover, who he is?
Let’s find out! Go and watch Kung Fu Panda 3. I’m pretty sure that you won’t regret it.
