Kung Fu Panda 4

Animation Action


Po, the Dragon Warrior Panda, is called to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace and must take his staff of wisdom and train his replacement.

Kung Fu Panda 4 is the fourth instalment following an all-but-perfect trilogy. Awesomeness is becoming wearisomeness, the spiritual vibe has dissipated, the furious five are on sabbatical and a fart by the hero is what the hallmark humour has been reduced to. The fast action has devolved into a series of frantic battles, thankfully supported by stunning animation that lifts every scene. Unfortunately, what was once vibrant and infectious is starting to look like a video game. It was fun while it lasted, but inexplicably the production team are playing solely to young children. Pan duh.
