Voice by: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton.
Release Date: 24th November 2011
Another lucky day for me to watch the sneak peak of Puss in Boots before the release date, completing the fact that I’m a huge fan of Puss since he showed up in Shrek 2.
The story began with one of Puss’ routine of one night stand with another female cat, stealing people’s money and drinking session at the bar. Puss is a big wanted criminal in a city named San Ricardo, which is ironically his hometown where his Mama lives.
When he tried to steal the magic beans from Jack and Jill, a cat named Kitty Softpaws ruined his plan and ended up having a dance fight with him. Intrigued by Kitty’s sexiness, Puss followed her and for his surprise, met his long-lost brother that betrayed him once, Humpty Alexander Dumpty. The story then starts flashback from Puss and Humpty’s past of friendship and betrayal.
However, Puss, Kitty and Humpty decided to work together to steal Jack and Jill’s magic bean and grow the beanstalk to kidnap the golden goose; three of them with their own personal mission.
The story flows with jokes and action, typical of ‘Shrek’-alike, enjoyable by kids as well as adults. If you are a Shrek fan, you’ll enjoy it. Even though the story happened long before Puss met Shrek, maybe the movie won’t be very interesting for those who didn’t watch Shrek.
I enjoyed the animation, the jokes, Puss’ cutie face when he was small, the nursery rhymes’ and fairy tales’ characters, and most of all, I enjoyed Puss’ cute eyes! Be prepared for long “Aawwwww…….”
