Dreamworks Animation is known for many things. One is its ever popular Shrek series. When I heard the character, Puss In Boots, was getting his own movie, I rolled my eyes like everyone else not expecting much. But the reviews were generally positive and I thought I would try it out.
I was pleasantly surprised with the result.
Now, I came in with a little bit of skepticism. Could the fan-favorite cat that stole everyone’s heart really stand on his own two boots? (See what I did there. Ohohoho) But this movie has a lot of charm. The humor is kept from the Shrek but it’s not the focus. Instead, we have a question of honor and brotherhood and doing the right thing that keeps the story rooted. The cast is sparkling, with the only oddball being Galifianakis but even he has a good time, and the visual effects are great. I’d recommend a rent and if you find yourself enjoying it go ahead and buy it.
