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.
Puss In Boots a ginger Tom cat wearing a cavaliers hat, spies a spot of light on the ground and chases it.
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.
A rather interesting DreamWorks movie that showed, how funny all that fairy-tale things can be, if you leave Shrek out of it.
Good fun! A nice blend of humor for both kids and adults. I was a bit disappointed story-wise though.
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…
The animation in the film is fantastic and the characters created and their personalities are extremely creative and a joy to witness.
The reimagining of Jack & Jill and the story of Jack and the Beanstalk is incredibly clever.
Finally, the closing sequence is one of the best scenes in the film. Its just wonderful.
Wasnt expecting to like this this much. Surprised to be honest. Another animated film I really like.
This film was a lot better than that 3rd shrek film, that I still haven't been been able to finish watching.
I liked the Shrek films, so I was intrigued by Puss in Boots, but I wasn't sure the character was strong enough to carry its own movie. Well, now that I could get it cheap I thought I should at least give it a chance, and I'm glad I did. While I didn't like it quite as much as I liked the Shrek films, I found it pleasant enough. Antonio Banderas does a mean Puss, and Salma Hayek rocks as Kitty Softpaws. I definitely did not like Humpty Dumpty. No refection on Zach Galifianakis. I just find Humpty Dumpty too silly as a concept.
Still, the movie is very entertaining, leaning more towards adventure than comedy, which makes it different from the Shrek films. And that's not a bad thing.
My soul hurts.
Nowhere near as good as The Shrek films, is a decent family watch that parody's a lot of old western films but nowhere near as charming or funny as Shrek.
Its an OK kids film but wont appeal to the whole family like Shrek does. The cast does a decent job though and the film looks as good as the studios other films.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Buena idea hacer un spin off con un personaje querido de Shrek. Ahora, a mucha gente no le sentó bien. Porque tienen que entender que no es otra película de Shrek.
Animación excelente, como siempre. Increíble el estudio que se habrá hecho de los gatos, su carácter, movimientos y reacciones. Y siempre hay que reconocerlo: buena interpretación de Antonio Banderas.
Una historia original y llena de aventuras manteniendo la línea inicial de los cuentos de hadas. Un villano un tanto inesperado, pero con un desenlace completamente redondo que resuelve todo lo necesario en cada uno de los personajes.
Interesante Soundtrack de Henry Jackman, muy temático, aunque no me mató.
Having just watched "The Mask of Zorro," it seemed appropriate to dive into another Antonio Banderas swashbuckling flick.
PiB a fun little film, with some great visuals, a sophisticated plotline (almost too complex for its own good), decent voice talent, and a bouncy frenetic action that threatens to distract but ends up making this just what you would expect if Puss in Boots we a sword-wielding thief in the vaguely Spanish/Mexican southwest.
This film counts as a rare case where a spin-off from another series (Shrek in this case) is as good as the first. Puss' desire to be cool and respected, as well as loved, as well as meeting the heroic stature he expects from himself, makes for a…
Pretty much what could be expected from a Shrek spinoff. It has the same type of 1-liner humor. It isn't the most evolved animated feature, but it wasn't terrible either.
