He’s small, he’s furry, and he has an extremely small shoe size.
He’s Puss in Boots, and he’s back on the big screen.
Stepping out of the boots of a supporting character and into the ones of a main character, Puss, voiced by Antonio Banderas, stars in his own movie, “Puss in Boots.”
“Puss in Boots” tells the story of the sword wielding feline before his fateful meeting with the green ogre the world has come to know as Shrek.
“Puss in Boots” has action, adventure, comedy, and dancing. It turns out Puss is not only an expert swordsman, but he’s got some wicked dance moves.
Together with Kitty Softpaws(Salma Hayek) and Humpty Dumpty(Zack Galifianakis), Puss seeks to steal the legendary magical beans from the infamous Jack and Jill(Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris).
Beans that meant so much more to Puss than a beanstalk that would lift them up to their fortune.
The audience is also treated to a glimpse into Puss’ childhood, when he was but a wee kitten that had yet to find his boots.
Despite being a spin-off of the “Shrek” series, “Puss in Boots” is capable of standing on its own two paws.
As with the “Shrek” series, some of the humor found in “Puss in Boots” is geared more towards the older audience, though it does not go as far as “Shrek” and is still suitable for younger audiences.
And if you’re someone that’s never seen the “Shrek” series, you can see “Puss in Boots” without worry of getting lost. It’d be just like seeing any other animated movie about a talking cat.
All in all, “Puss in Boots” makes for a good family movie. A movie worthy of being seen on the big screen. And a movie worthy of adorning this writer’s DVD wrack upon its release in the future.
