Puss in Boots (2011)

At first, I told myself that it's okey to miss this one because I'm not really a fan of the Shrek movie series... However, my wife was so eager to watch it and she's been wanting to see it for weeks... Therefore, we went to watch it last Friday... 

Puss in Boots turned out to be so damn entertaining and far better than Shrek... So glad I watched it!!



THE STORY

Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas), tried to steal magical beans from an outlaw couple, Jack (Billy Bob Thornton) and Jill (Amy Sedaris) in order to get enough gold to clean back his tarnished name and regain his surrogate mother's trust... Joining him was Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis)... Their adventure was filled with engaging action and heart warming moments... It's indeed a journey you don't wanna miss!


WHAT'S GOOD?

Puss in Boots

In Shrek, despite being a minor character, Puss in Boots is indeed the audience's favorite... Puss almost steal the thunder from all of the main characters with his cuteness and charm being ironically combined... The blend of cuteness of a cat with the charm of Zorro is indeed a formula that works... People love the irony because it brings out the humor without having the character trying too hard to impress... Even with his stare, Puss is able to capture every single one of the audience... 

Putting in Antonio Banderas' voice into the character just adds up the effectiveness of the character... Banderas, the one who wore the mask of Zorro, has the charm of an outlaw and a powerful womanizer... He's perfect to voice up Puss...



Cats Doing Silly Stuff

Cat lovers! Rejoice! There are like hundreds of cats in this movie and all of them are super cute... 

Youtube has proven how much people love to see cats doing strange and silly stuff because they're cute and funny... For instance, the keyboard cat and the nyan cat... Well, in this movie, there are so many silly stuff they do... Dancing, playing music instruments, clapping, fighting, chasing lights and so much more... What I love to see the most is the dance fight between Puss and Kitty... It was hilarious!

This cat is funny... So kepoh! Haha!


Graphics

I don't think I need to explain this because from the past few years, the animation industry has been developing so much that most of the movie, especially from Pixar and Disney, are so impressive in terms of graphics... 

In this movie, the characters were perfectly made that sometimes I forgot that I'm actually watching a 3D cartoon... Of course, the graphics are not as real as the ones in Avatar but the lack of reality is good because the target audience is kids... I love the portrayal of Mother Goose especially before they reveal its true form... It looks scary!


The Movie References

Because Puss in Boots is like a parody of Zorro, this movie uses so many Zorro references... For example, the slashing of sword on a black canvas to make a symbol... 

Besides Zorro, the are other references from other movies like Fight Club... Did u notice?


ALL IN ALL

Puss in Boots is indeed better than Shrek because it's funnier and cuter... Thanks to the abundance of cuteness from the cats... It works mostly because of the effectiveness in terms of characters... Each of them is cute and unique in their own ways... 


3.5 out of 5 stars...
