I received the chance to review Kung Fu Panda 4 and here is what I thought.

Let’s just get the bad news out of the way. Kung Fu Panda 4 isn’t as good as the first installment. It is hard for a sequel to live up to the first film, and there are very few movie series that can actually meet or rival the first movie in a series. Kung Fu Panda 4 is following that norm, mostly because the emotional connection we usually have with Po and the story is a little broken.

In the first few installments, Po was learning how to be the Dragon Warrior, seeking friends and family to help along his journey of growth. In Kung Fu Panda, Po must relinquish the title of Dragon Warrior to become the valley’s spiritual leader. This is heart-breaking for me, and leaves me less emotionally involved knowing that my Dragon Warrior will be leaving as the Valley’s defender. In fact, I almost didn’t watch the movie because I just wasn’t ready for Po to leave behind the role he worked so hard to become. They did this with Cars and Lightning McQueen, and I wasn’t happy then either.

That being said, Kung Fu Panda 4 wasn’t all mushy and tears, nor was it a huge disappointment. Jack Black delivers the voice to Po with the same energy that we have come to love. It would not be the same without Jack Black, and I am happy to see him continue the epic role. His fellow voice actors, Awkwafina, Viola Davis, Bryan Cranston, James Hong, and Ian McShane all do justice to their characters and actually work well next to Jack Blacks crazy energy.

On top of the amazing voice actors delivering phenomenal characters, we also have a high speed, not boring, action film. Kung Fu Panda 4 continues the growth and story of Po as well as the stories of some other characters we have seen throughout the series, such as Tai Lung. It is exciting to see Po, his new friends, and the villains of the past all collide on screen.

To top off the amazing characters and story, we also get the same graphics of past movies. Thankfully the creators kept to the art fans love and made this film with their audience in mind. I was so happy to see my favorite characters as I remember them and not in some weird 3d paper craft art.

Honestly, while the emotional rollercoaster is there, this film is fast paced, full of fun, and high energy. The voice actors deliver extremely well and the art is perfect to the series. Really, it was fantastically made and deserves 5 stars. Also it has Jack Black voicing Po, so really, that already puts it in the 5 star stage hahaha
