Puss In Boots – one of the most beloved characters of the Shrek universe – tells the hilarious and courageous (daring, bold, brave) tale of Puss’s (Antonio Banderas) early adventures as he teams with mastermind Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and the street-savvy Kitty (Salma Hayek) to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs
You can expect lots of exciting action and dance sequences from this film. Though it’s in beautifully done 3D, I don’t think it’s necessary to watch it in 3D. I will admit though that I had fun focusing on the big screen while the scenes took me through desierto España.
After almost 16 years (I’m so sweet I did the math for you, lazybones) the chemistry between Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek is still strong. Rewind to 1995 (and you’ll remember them as the hot lovers in the action thriller, Desperado.
They still look sizzling in Puss in Boots.
I didn’t find the villains too menacing. Jack and Jill didn’t scare or annoy me as much as Humpty did. But it was ok because if not for him, there will be no concrete moral message.
Puss in Boots is no Kung Fu Panda, but it still made me laugh many, many times. And it sure as hell is better than the crappy Shrek sequels after the 2nd.
I smell a Puss in Boots sequel. I also smell Kitty Softpaws returning and having a bigger role– a role that she deserves. As for Puss, I just hope that he continues to be the suave-asskicking puddytat who delights in skittering lights and warm milk. 🙂
