The first Kung Fu Panda was a plump dumpling filled with gorgeous oriental artistry, A-grade martial arts animation, and meaty family comedy. The sequel, and I realise I’m one of the very few to say this, was a matured masterpiece. With Kung Fu Panda 3, we’re treated to less of the same, and while that is disappointing, it doesn’t deny this trilogy from being one of the best franchises to come out of DreamWorks Animation Studios.

The stunning visuals surpass the high standards set by its predecessors, but storywise, it breaks no new ground.

Gloriously colorful, very funny and, better yet, unexpectedly substantive and genuinely moving.

The animation is still strong... but, mainly, KFP3 is too much of a good thing.

Lots of comedic fight scenes break up the story’s more sombre stretches, and the animation, especially in 3-D, is simply gorgeous.

Lacks the tear-jerking revelations and darker edge that characterized its predecessor. Visually though, it's a candy-colored 3-D treat, from the exquisite sunset that shimmers over the panda enclave to the psychedelia of the spirit world.

The directors also make sure to let Po stay the charming bumbler he’s always been. That’s what makes him such an earnest, lovable hero.

Refuses to panda to the lowest common denominator.

Rather than the cynical ‘one last grab’ of the series, Kung Fu Panda 3 might actually be the best.
