Dragon warrior, Kung Fu fighter, total nerd. Jack Black is once again bringing to life the cuddly, and excitable Po as he and the Furious Five band together to save China from great evil. We rejoin our heroes as Po is tasked with a seemingly impossible challenge, one that anyone can see he surely must be doomed to fail.
With quick paced humour being thrown from every direction, there’s guaranteed to be something to make everyone laugh. As well as some well placed wisdom that some of us are sure to relate to. “We’re pandas. We don’t do stairs.”
But fun times and levity aside, there are some important pieces of wisdom being bestowed upon us by these great Kung Fu masters and their allies. Characters from Po’s past and present learn that sometimes, we do the wrong things for the right reasons. They learn about thinking outside the box to get the job done, about working together, and about self-sacrifice.
We are carried through this tale with soaring melodies and beautiful scenery, as we follow our unlikely hero on his quest to save his friends and family. Directors, Alessandro Carloni and Jennifer Yuh, team up with the voice talents of Black, Bryan Cranston, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, J.K. Simmons, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, and David Cross to take us on their third epic adventure through China.
With all the wisdom that is bestowed in this Kung Fu adventure, one piece stands out. Master Shifu gifts us with this particular insight. “If you only do what you can do, you’ll never be better than you are.”
All of this combines to create a great movie for the whole family to enjoy.
