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.

Shrek's Puss in Boots was so successful they had to capitalize their fanbase. This film acts as a prequel for the Shrek movies. Puss in Boots was an orphan corrupted by an evil talking egg, Humpty Dumpty. Puss is deceived into helping Humpty search for the fabled magic beans. Hilarity and chaos ensues. There is no really much more to it. Watch it if you are hardcore Shrek fan. Shrek is love, Shrek is life. Right, it may not purrfect but at least it does not fail at keeping you entertained.

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 don't exactly remember the Shrek films, but I remember enjoying them.
Their riffs on popular fairy-tales and folklores stories was funny and nice. And who can forget Puss in Boots and his awesome Alien-spoofing debut in Shrek 2?
Puss in Boots is a spin-off from Shrek, showing Puss before he met Shrek in Shrek 2.
I was not really expecting much from this film, being a spin-off on a supporting character (as scene stealing as he was in the series).
But I was pleasantly suprised.
Like Shrek, it riffs on popular tales, this time the "Jack and the Beanstalk". And it really is funny in a way.
The film introduces new characters, including Puss' former best friend Humpty Alexander…
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…
I watched this film in Spanish, and I don't know why.
Not groundbreaking, but, cute. Fun little plot, and breathtaking animation. Puss in Boots is just as great as ever, but, the supporting characters are very weak and unlikeable. Fun watch, show it to your kids, it's a lot better than most of the garbage they have on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.
I honestly almost think this is better than the rest of the Shrek franchise I mean Puss In Boots is the best character in the Shrek franchise and him having his own movie overall this movie is pretty good.
As you're probably familiar with, Puss in Boots (2011) is based on the ginger cat character from the Shrek universe. The jokes are so-so to chuckle worthy, but by god there's a great list of voice actors. Antonio Banderas, Zach Galifianakis, Salma Hayek, and Billy Bob Thornton were fantastic, Banderas' voice is unorthodox for a cat but it matches so well (good job Dreamworks!). The plot for this movie focuses on Puss in Boots, who tries to clear his name from previous acts of crime he unwillingly committed. Along the way, a former friend backed by Puss' romantic interest meet the cavalier cat. The plan: to steal Jack and Jill's magic beans. There were surprising times were I laughed, even…
A little uneven, occasionally a little immature, and not all the jokes hit the mark. Still, it's great to see Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek back together, even if it is for seemingly the most bizarre El Mariachi film ever. (In case anyone didn't get the reference, they star together in the second and third movies of Robert Rodriguez' "El Mariachi" trilogy: "Desperado" and "Once Upon A Time In Mexico".)
The plot is rather inconsistent, but there are fun moments and the film doesn't fail to entertain. I think this showed a lot of promise and could potentially have been a much better film. It's not the best animated film, but standards have been high lately and this is good enough to make for a reasonably satisfying evening in.
My review is here:
Película hecha a control remoto y dirigida por un robot que no aporta ni quita nada, para pasar el rato y poco mas.
Puss has always been one of my favorite characters in the Dreamworks animated world. I watched this with a group of grown up friends and we were all rolling. It leans towards adult nature but If I had kids,..... which I'm pretty sure I don't, This flick would be on repeat at my place.
