Jack Black returns as Po, the titular panda bear, now a hero of his city and of kung-fu in general. But things get tough for him when his master insists that he become a teacher and learn the secrets of chi. And then there’s a new big bad, voiced by J.K. Simmons who is stealing the chi of masters around China (even the dead ones). A solution seems to have been found when Po’s long lost biological father shows up out of nowhere (Bryan Cranston) and tells them of his hidden Panda village where everybody knows how to manipulate chi. Problem solved, right? Not so much. But not as big a problem as making the entertainment value of these characters stay steady for three animated films. Sarah, JC, Chris and Elliott tell it like it is.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Even if this turns out to be the weakest of the three movies for me, I’ll still probably enjoy it a lot. Compared to the likes of Home, Minions, etc. the fact we have a really good animated Trilogy is a very rare thing.

    16:50, You know TMS would bitch about something stupid like the panda and Tiger hook up. And it would be the most ridiculous Article they have made. And that is saying something considering that is how they get their largest viewing numbers.

    Even if this sounds like the lesser of the 3, I think I am still gonna see it. The 1st and 2nd were so much fun and such a surprise. I do expect JK Simmons to throw a chair at somebody or scream “That’s not my Tempo” at somebody. IF that does not happen the movie is getting one star. ONE STAR!!!!

    Sarah doesn’t like Pandas? That’s something I never thought I’d hear…
