Although Kung Fu Panda 3 is my least favorite of the franchise, it is not terrible. The franchise has been an amazing watch and I hold it up to a very high standard. This movie was funny and had an adventure, but I did not like it as much as the previous two because in the 3rd movie they added the Pandas in as main characters instead of the Furious Five which made side characters mainly. The movie was amazing and would probably be one of my favorite movies but throughout the franchise I would say this is the least best. The story begins with Po learning about the return of Kai and his conquest

Kung Fu Panda 2 is my favorite movie in the Kung Fu Panda franchise because it has the best storyline and the best moments where it can be intense, or it can be funny. The story begins with Po learning that he was adopted and then that leads to him searching for his past. Po goes on a journey to find who he is and where he came from and once he finds out he will know that he has to stop the new threat, Peacock, before he rules the village. I had an amazing time watching this movie and it was entertaining + funny. My favorite part was Po’s realization that he was not alone and found his past. I

Kung Fu Panda is one of my childhood favorite movies because it is funny, it has action, and it has the best comedy in DreamWorks animations. The story begins with Po, a panda, who works with his father at a noodle shop. He stumbles into a Kung Fu assembly and is chosen by Master Oogway to be the next Kung Fu Master. Po is told that a leopard named Tai Lung is coming to the town and that he was the only one to stop him. I had the best time possible watching Kung Fu Panda because this movie has action, adventure through Po’s soul, and a lot of comedy. I recommend this movie to every fan of

This movie shouldn't be any good. And yet, it is.


I like a lot of wuxia movies, but a wuxia film written and directed by Americans with an American boy as the main character? Even with Jackie Chan and Jet Li in feature roles (the first time the two have been in a movie together), I was filled with doubt. A lot of doubt. But by the end of the movie, I wanted to go back and watch it again. Like the 1980s cult classic Big Trouble in Little China, The Forbidden Kingdom is less a Hollywood attempt at doing a Chinese martial arts movie and more a love letter to those movies.
