Puss In Boots

Puss, the boots-wearing, swashbuckling cat from the animated Shrek franchise, gets his own spin-off movie, detailing his adventures before he met up with the grumpy green ogre in Shrek 2

Antonio Banderas, returning to voice the titular character, is joined by Salma Hayek who is voicing Kitty Softpaws, the love interest of Puss. Together, with sidekick Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis), they go up against Jack and Jill (Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris), two murderous outlaws in possession of powerful, magical beans.

An epic quest that somehow manages to thrill without ever taking itself seriously, at least for the first hour or so.

With his impeccable comic timing and lyrical Spanish accent, Banderas' swashbuckling charmer is an undeniable treat.

Director Chris Miller goes some way to atone for franchise low-point Shrek The Third. Still, the use of 3D is the only game-raising.

A cheerfully chaotic jumble of fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters parachuted into a Spanish storybook setting.

A family film where the adventure and invention never flag and the tongue-in-cheek humor doesn't linger far behind.

A perfectly diverting romp that happens to showcase some of the best 3D work yet from a mainstream animated feature.

Beautifully animated (with 3-D that adds nothing), but the film is so mindlessly busy that it seems to be trying to distract you from the likable, one-note feline swashbuckler at its center.

Like most kittens, it's not always perfectly behaved, but at least this new Puss adventure doesn't have you reaching for the cinematic spray bottle. And thank goodness the spin-off does nothing to neuter the charismatic cat's appeal.

As a sheer visual experience, Puss In Boots makes a great theme-park ride, a thrill-a-minute feast for the eyes and the semicircular canals

Uninspired and annoyed.

Puss was an entertaining character in Shrek 2 but fails to convince as a leading character on its own, the story is trite and meaningless, the hero's journey is a lame duck and Humpty Dumpty what the bloody hell is this?

Cute boots

Finally got round to watching this movie due to all the favourable comments. While the movie doesn't have a strong story line, the details and background are great. The cats are brilliant. The kitty dance off, the cutest. Lots of in-jokes and kitty jokes for the adults that would be wasted on ankle biters. Definitely worth a watch for the glorious...

Unexpectedly disappointed by this film

Having heard other people comment favourably about this film, I went to see it in the 2D version. I expected to really enjoy it as I loved the Shrek movies (especially 1 & 2), but I came out of 'Puss in Boots' disappointed. Sure the animation was great and the relationship between Puss in Boots and Kitty Softpaws led to some laughs. However, I think...

Puss in your boots (not mine)

Puss in Boots Of course its marketed towards the children, so imagine 'Zoro', in cat form, with a checkered past... ha ha. No really, its good but of course its all about Antonio Banderas, even his ascent as Puss is awesome. Salma Hayek's kitten charater is pretty cool, you'l understand when you watch it. Good little innuendoes throughout and enjoyed the...
