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!
Jack: I hate cats!
Puss in Boots: That's not what your mama said!
Ohhh Cat: Ooooooohhhhhh!
Puss In Boots
was originally planned straight to dvd but it shows it can tell a story with amusing animation.
Puss and Humpty Dumpty are orphans yet brothers by heart yet
Puss and Humpty are the opposite to one another, one is heroic and the other lacks heroism. Puss becomes a young hero saving a lady from a bull.One night, Humpty wakes up Puss to an unsuspected mission, little that he known that it was a robbery to steal the town's money. Both are seen as convicted thieves but in reality Humpty is the real thief. The two reunite to steal a golden egg and reclaim forgiveness from their town and home yet a journey begins.
The movie had funny moments as well as a cat chasing light.
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…
Truly a solid spin-off. Puss in Boots is a lot of fun thanks to its sharp wit, impressive visuals, and great voice acting.
This is actually the first time I seen this one in it's entirity. Though I have seen bits and pieces before. While I found this one entertaining... I think it was more geared to the younger crowd. I liked Puss in Boots as well as Kitty Softpaws but found Humpty Dumpty and Jack & Jill to be lacking a bit. But over-all I think it is worth checking out... especially for a family viewing.
Shrek is one of the best animated films ever if you ask me, and while this could never live up to it, it's fun returning to the world of absurd fairytales........ but I'm also 22 years old.... what am I doing.
Wisdom teeth weekend update: 3 bowls of soup and three movies in 👍
i shALl not falter, not in this, the final stretch. Many OtherS would have losT their way and Fallen in the face of such adveRsity but i strivE Ever onwards. puss in boots is deserving of a spin off. truly delightful.
"No! That is just a rumour, spread by dogs!"
I love the character, but this film was very underwhelming.
I was not looking forward to watching this pick by my son. There are few things I dislike more than Shrek, so this spin-off was on my "to avoid" list. Well, I was pleasantly surprised cuz this one was pretty dang entertaining. Mainly it is completely filled with cats. To the brim. So that's pretty awesome. And it's not all lame pop culture jokes for parents...there's a few, but there's no Smashmouth singin' the Monkees, or whatever. Good fun time. And seeing this many cats animated to chase a little light is quite a pleasure.
Infinitely better than the films it span off from, Puss in Boots is a brilliantly funny animation that I can (and have) watched over and over again.
