Review : Puss in Boots

Puss in Boots 

The events leading up to the sword fighting cat's meeting with Shrek and his friends.

Years before meeting Shrek and Donkey, the adorable but tricky Puss in Boots becomes a wanted fugitive, and finds under the circumstances he must clear his name of all charges. While trying to steal magic beans from the infamous criminals Jack and Jill, the hero crosses paths with his female match, Kitty Softpaws, who leads Puss to his old friend, but now enemy, Humpty Dumpty. 

It's a story about loyalty, friendship, courage, greed, trust, determination. It truly is worth while watching, you do go on a rather interesting journey with the story that you've got for an hour and a half. The viewer is getting so much over a short duration of running time that it captivates and contains the overall enjoyment of it.

If there is one thing this film does to give itself merit, it contains itself within the story really well. It never really boars, it has a very good storyline, is quick on its feet with swashbuckling action and clever humour and what I like about this film  even more than any other reason is it doesn't really muck about too much because there isn't really a lot of time to develop within it, which is one of its few limitations. 

You have a strong start at the beginning where you meet Puss in Boots for the first time, though we've got to know Puss from the Shrek films, we actually do get to know Puss as Puss before he met Shrek and Donkey. So this is kind of the prequel to Shrek, and even then I thought the background behind Puss's friendship with Humpty was very well done and made up the story really well how two friends, turned enemies. It's insightful to children, more than adults because children learn more as they go along, they have a broader perspective as your younger.

The film is stocked up on thrill, so you won't be bored watching this : with mild innuendo, cartoonish violence, and tense/perilous scenes include several duels, an elaborate "dance off," a cannon/gun fight, a "monster" chase, and a character who willingly plummets to their death. There are a couple of double-meaning jokes and a repeated mention that Puss is a "lover," as well as a funny conversation about starting a family between the villainous Jack and Jill. 

Overall though this film maybe aimed more at child audiences, it's a film which is meant to be enjoyed as whole by everyone. hence the U Rating. It's very good. Not brilliant, but I would recommend it to people who haven't seen it.


I'm going to take a short break, but I will be back in April with more exciting reviews and recommendations.
