Puss in Boots
Live for danger. Fight for justice. Pray for mercy.
Long before he even met Shrek, the notorious fighter, lover and outlaw Puss in Boots becomes a hero when he sets off on an adventure with the tough and street smart Kitty Softpaws and the mastermind Humpty Dumpty to save his town. This is the true story of The Cat, The Myth, The Legend... The Boots.
About a cat with egg on his face.
And an egg with a face on his ...... egg.
And giant poultry.
And .... oh sod it, this was fun.
Puss In Boots a ginger Tom cat wearing a cavaliers hat, spies a spot of light on the ground and chases it.
Dreamworks Puss in Boots, a spin-off prequel to the Shrek franchise isn't great or anything but I liked it better than the Shrek sequels. More importantly my two boys liked it which is always my first priority when watching a film with my family.
On a side note Humpty Dumpty is a bit of an ASSHOLE!
Unexpectedly decent. After a couple of Shrek sequels that were pushing the jokes and twists too hard, Chris Miller makes a second attempt to make something worwhile in the perseverant Dreamworks Animation Studios, and the result is good enough to be called a smart treatment of classical adventures, creatively transitioning from a western, to an adventure film, to a homage of magical fairy tales and action-packed thrills, everything with its Spanish colonial touch. I liked its constant transition styles. This is the minimum level that spinoffs should aim at.
I should make it clear before reviewing this that I have disliked all the Shrek films so if you are a fan of those movies then you may enjoy this spin-off prequel a little more than I did.
Of all the Shrek characters it was Puss in Boots who had the most potential for solo stories; partly because he was the least irritating character and partly because of his swashbuckling derring-do antics. For me this was a solid stab at creating a successful spin-off and funnier and more exciting than all the films that preceded it in the series.
It still is far from perfect though. The first half has some pretty major pacing issues. It sets-up a motivational back…
Here's the thing with Puss in Boots, it features a fan favourite character from the Shrek series and they've gave him his own film. I didn't expect that Puss would be able to carry a film of his own and that's why I had been holding it off until now. It was actually very surprising, it was better than Shrek the Third and Shrek Forever After anyway. It feels like it's just a big version of one of the tales that Puss tells Shrek and it was very enjoyable. This tells the origin story of Puss along with one of his adventures. We start off and Puss is the one we know and love and he's wanting to get his…
Jautra un izklaidējoša, taču nepamet sajūta, ka kaut kas tomēr nedaudz pietrūka.
The best Shrek-related film since Shrek 2, if not the original Shrek. Funny and well-animated with great voice performances and an incredible soundtrack.
Another romp in a land of mixed fairy tales.
Being a Shrek spin-off you would expect it to be more imaginative than it was. Still has some really funny moments involving things that every cat does.
Puss in Boots is kickass. Fun, smart, and entertaining.
Rewatched with family. Still just OK - there's some cute animation and the story's fun, but overall it's just not original and exciting enough. Doesn't hold up to the first two Shreks.
It's forgettable and feels like just a filler movie from DreamWorks, Puss In Boots does prove that the best thing to happen to the Shrek franchise is strong enough to hold his own film, with plenty of charm to spare, awesome visuals and a great vocal performance from Antonio Banderas as the titular character.
"Miller's film sadly stands for much of DreamWorks' animated output of late: at times nice to look at, and a few good ideas scattered throughout, but with absolutely nothing of substance or heart underneath". Read my full review of Puss In Boots at Film Intel
3rd time around and its still a load of fun.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
