Consensus: Kung Fu Panda 3 boasts the requisite visual splendor, but like its rotund protagonist, this sequel's narrative is also surprisingly nimble, adding up to animated fun for the whole family.

I think the secret to the appeal of the entire Kung Fu Panda franchise is the enormous affection we feel for Po, that seemingly bumbling good guy who also can rise to the occasion and showcase true heroism and mystical power.

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

Fun for the whole family! Funny, creative and by the film's end, you take away lessons for being a better person. A good time.

Kids, especially those who enjoyed the previous Kung Fu Panda movies, will appreciate what the third movie has to offer.

The animation is still strong - there are some interesting and refreshingly uncuddly depictions of the spirit world from whence Kai springs - but, mainly, KFP3 is too much of a good thing.

As the year of the goat gives way to the year of the monkey, Kung Fu Panda 3 is a nice way to celebrate the calendar turning.
