Elsewhere: My Letterboxd review of Kung Fu Panda 3

Reblogged from my Letterboxd list:

By movie number three, most modern Hollywood franchises have given up the ghost, particularly in the animated realm. Kung Fu Panda 3 is one of the few to buck the trend. With its big name voice cast, and poor DreamWorks Animation pedigree (it’s from the same studio as the tired Shrek films, and the depressingly average Ice Age series), all signs point to it not being even half as good as it actually is, melding a trope-laden but solid story with genuine, unforced comedy and a superlative visual identity of a kind rarely seen beyond anime. If you miss it, you’re missing out.
