Puss In Boots Review

Holy frijones…..from the creative minds of people that brought us Madagascar, Kung-Fu Panda and the many adventures of Shrek and Co. Dreamworks have worked their magic, waved their wands again to bring a new breed of hero to the big screen. This time in the form of that 2ft ginger cat known as “Puss in Boots”.
Set in the days before ever meeting Shrek, the story tells the tales of the felines own hair raising adventures, risking his many lives in order to save loved ones and reclaim his lost honour. Puss (voiced again by Antonio Banderas) goes in search of the giant’s castle in order to find and steal the mystical golden egg laying duck. With the help of Humpty Dumpty (Voiced by Hangovers Zach Galifianakis) and Kitty Softpaws (Voiced by Frida’s Salma Hayek), the trio find themselves in all sorts of dangers they must face along the way.

As you would expect the story features many other well-known film references and fairy-tale characters from Jack & Jill to Mother Goose to name a few that all kids and adults can relate too. With same impressive sword fights and fancy foot work on the dance floor, Puss brings it all and more. 

Presented in 3D, this film has proved anything is possible and there are no limits, raising the bar for any future animations that have to follow. The attention to detail and textures are truly amazing making you forget it’s an animation you’re actually watching.

If the film still hasn’t convinced you to purchase a ginger kitten for yourself by the time you’ve left the cinema, I don’t know what will. Filled with many laugh out loud moments, this is ideal for all the family and enough for adults to be happily entertained for 90 mins.
