Puss In Boots

Puss In Boots," is a spin-off of Dreamworks' popular "Shrek" movies. The adorable swash buckler is back to kick start a franchise of his own. Does the film succeed and will the audiences come in droves to see this adorable character?

Long before he even met Shrek, the suave ,adventurous ,notorious fighter, lover and outlaw Puss In Boots, has returned to the village of San Ricardo to make one more big score, even though he has a price on his head. Puss learns of a treasure held by the thieving couple Jack and Jill: magic beans that will grow a giant beanstalk leading him to the goose that lays the golden eggs. But Puss isn't the only one after the magic beans and now he must contend with another pair also seeking the beans -- Kitty Softpaws and Puss' childhood friend, Humpty Dumpty.

"Puss In Boots" is much more enjoyable than the recent remake of the three Musketeers. It not only has its main heist, but it also delves into the origins of the devil-may-care cat. The humour is spot on , as is the wonderful animation.

Dream works have done a fantastic job with this film.

Antonio Banderas returns to voice Puss and has a lot of fun with it , he plays the character with shades of Zorro. Salma Hayek (Kitty Softpaws), Zach Galifianakis (Humpty Dumpty), Billy Bob Thornton (Jack) and Amy Sedaris (Jill) all fill out the rest of the main voice cast and do respectable jobs, but really this is Banderas' movie.

The film is brilliant and the whole family will love it. I for one cannot wait for the sequel to this swash buckling yarn that just makes you fall in love again with the cool Puss in Boots.

I leave it now to the audience to make their own minds up.
