Animated Action: The title character reunites with his long-lost father and must attain the warrior skills needed to combat a new, supernatural enemy.
Po (voice of JACK BLACK), the title character who is the last of his kind, returns as the ultimate fighting hero of an alternate China populated solely by talking animals and birds. Over the years, he has saved the kingdom many times with the help of his comrades in combat, the Furious Five: Tigress (voice of ANGELINA JOLIE), Monkey (voice of JACKIE CHAN), Crane (voice of DAVID CROSS), Viper (voice of LUCY LIU), and Mantis (voice of SETH ROGEN).

Now, though, they face a twofold challenge. One, their mentor, Master Shifu (voice of DUSTIN HOFFMAN), has decided to go on a quest for personal knowledge and enlightenment and has placed Po in charge. Two, a villainous yak named Kai (voice of J.K. SIMMONS) has returned from centuries of banishment in the spirit realm and is stealing the "chi" of all the great martial arts warriors and masters in his quest for world domination. Angered that the physical world has forgotten him and scared of the last great prophecy of the legendary Master Oogway (voice of RANDALL DUK KIM) -- that a panda would rise up to defeat him -- Kai vows to hunt Po down and destroy him.

To the dismay of his adoptive father, Mr. Ping (voice of JAMES HONG), Po has recently reunited with his birth father, Li (voice of BRYAN CRANSTON), who has told him of a mystical, magical, secret village of surviving pandas. Once there, he draws the attention of Mei Mei (voice of KATE HUDSON), an exotic dancing panda who's a big flirt. Po comes to believe that only in this remote village hidden away from the rest of the world can he acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to fulfill Oogway's prophecy and best Kai.

Yes. The first two were big hits with children and families in the theater and on DVD/Blu-Ray. This one should be, too.
For martial arts action and some mild, rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
