Kung Fu Panda 3: Movie Review

by Sheryl Wall

Special coupon for Dinuba Platinum Theatre at the end of this review.

Kung Fu Panda 3 continues the story of Po the Panda who became the dragon warrior. However, this movie expands on the personal story of Po's past and where he comes from. His Birth Father, Li, shows up searching for his son Po and the story shares how they meet and what happened to cause his Birth mother to give him up.

His father shares with him that there are more Panda Bears like him in a secret village where they end up going together. Po's adoptive father however worries about Po and tags along.

Unfortunately, Kai, a supernatural enemy, shows up to defeat all the Kung Fu masters. Po must learn how to master Chi to be able to defeat him. His Birth father promises to teach him but instead only teaches him the way of the Pandas for he fears for his son's safety. But once Kai sets out to destroy all the Pandas in the village, Po must find a way to stop him by teaching the Panda Bears how to fight or all will be lost.

Kung Fu Panda 3 has a deeper meaning to those who are adopted or have adopted. It goes into a bit of the loss that happens and the love of both the Birth parents and the adoptive parents. I find that the adoptive element drew me into the story for I am an adoptive mom.

I enjoyed Kung Fu Panda 3 with its deeper story line, but I also enjoy the humor that the character Po always brings to the story. I have always enjoyed Panda Bears and find it interesting some of the characteristics they use from real Pandas in the story, such as the constant eating and tiring out climbing the stairs indicating their laziness. This is a fun movie that can be enjoyed by both adults and children. In fact, the theater was nearly full when we went to see it, showing its popularity.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is currently playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6. Showtimes can be found on their website. Platinum Theaters Dinuba 6 now proudly presents digital quality films in 2-D and 3-D with 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound to maximize your movie experience.
