Last weekend my husband and I took our daughters to see Kung Fu Panda 3. We have seen the others (which we love!) so we expected the film to be pretty good. I must say, as we both walked out of the theater, we couldn’t stop quoting it! We were both blown away by just how amazing it was! Below are a few reasons why you should go see it.
Great Family Film
Kung Fu Panda 3 is a great movie for the entire family. If you have seen the first two (which you don’t really NEED to see in order to go see this movie), you know they are done very well. Some people might see Jack Black’s name and think this film might have a dirty side to it, but it doesn’t. It is very clean with some great humor that the whole family can enjoy. A few times my eyes teared up from laughing so hard! My daughters have always loved Po but now they do even more.
The Morals That You Learn
Be Yourself. That is the main lesson that you walk away with when you watch this film. Be the best you that you can be. I love that this film encourages my girls to find out what they do best and run with it. Kung Fu Panda 3 also shines light on family and friendship – just how important it is. I may have shed a few (OK, more than a few) tears at the end. Both of my daughters were very huggy after watching the film and I think that is because they realized (at least a little bit) just how much my husband and I love them.
The Voice Acting
I mean, just take a look at the list of actors in this film and you will know that it is awesome. You cannot go wrong with Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Seth Rogan, Lucy Liu, Kate Hudson, Jackie Chan, J.K. Simmons, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, David Cross – and that is not even all of them! Each of these actors brings life to their characters. I cannot hear Jack Black talk now without picturing Po! The combination and chemistry between them all is great and they had us laughing almost the entire film!
Living large and loving life, Po (Jack Black) realizes that he has a lot to learn if he’s going to fulfill the next challenge from his beloved instructor (Dustin Hoffman). After reuniting with his long-lost father (Bryan Cranston), Po must transition from student to teacher and train a group of fun-loving, clumsy pandas to become martial-arts fighters. Together, the kung-fu brethren unite to take on the evil Kai (J.K. Simmons), a supernatural warrior who becomes stronger with each battle.
