Puss in Boots Stars in Feature Film

Dreamworks' animated movie Puss in Boots (2011) delivers action, adventure, and angst - and that is just for starters. This Latin cat proves he has what it takes to step out of the shadows of the Shrek saga. In fact, he does it effortlessly. The 3D effects are like the sprinkles on a hot fudge Sunday. Take it from me, you will love the new animated film Puss in Boots starring Antonio Banderas.

Puss in Boots Review - About the Movie

How can an egg and a cat be brothers? They are not genetically related; they both ended up in an orphanage in Sanfrando where the two became "blood" brothers (Not sure if that is apt description as I don't think Humpty actually bleeds). The movie follows the typical premise of two brothers who drift apart and go off in separate directions in life: One choosing crime and the other choosing to be a hero.

These estranged brother's are further separated from each other when Humpty tricks Puss in to committing a crime and Puss turns his back on his brother. This is the back story for the two as they meet seven years later to steal the golden goose. The plan is Humpty and he uses Kitty to peak the cats interest which she does. Not that it would be hard for any female to get Puss' attention. He is the "love them and leave them" type of feline who never lays his hat at any one's place for too long.

Redemption for Humpty

Puss in Boots shares his history with Kitty; much to her chagrin. She even falls asleep on Puss and he has to wake her up. Poor Puss! Imagine pouring you heart out to someone and you catch them counting z's.

Jack and Jill are outlaws with no limits on their violence. Jack wants to be a father but Jill isn't ready be a mother - at least not to a human child (She doesn't want to wreck her well maintained body.) I think her perception may be slightly off in this exclamation.

Eventually all characters are revealed to be working for Humpty, the rotten egg, and Puss is sent to prison. With the aid of Kitty Soft Paws Puss is able to escape just in time to save the town from the golden goose's angry mother.

In the midst of everything these brother work together and Humpty makes a self sacrificing decision and lets go of the rope so Puss can save the golden goose and prevent the destruction of the town they grew up in. This is the redeeming moment for Humpty, and luckily he survives. He find happiness with the golden goose and ends up returning to the giants house.

Kitty who effortlessly steals Puss money, and who continually reminds him that he hit her in the head with a guitar, seems to sail off into the sunset. The relationship is left opened ended. Perhaps the two will meet again? Can anyone say sequel?

Puss in Boots in his Debut Movie Role - Shrek 2

Shrek 2 (Widescreen Edition)
Shrek 2 (Widescreen Edition)

Puss in Boots first appeared in Shrek Two as the only one who would get rid of an ogre problem. The Ugly Step-Sister Doris describes him as a solitary figure and dangerous when she tells the King, "Frankly he doesn't like to be disturbed" giving the King the unspoken warning to disturb him at his own risk. In this film we learn that Puss in Boots has a reputation and based on his reputation he can charge a huge sum for his services. While he looks cute he will lure you into a false sense of secutiy when be makes his eyes go big. We also learn he is a very talented with a sword. He is also very loyal and can admit when he is wrong (which he did after meeting Shrek). He later takes on a band of guards in Shrek 2 to repay his debt to Shrek allowing Shrek to stop Prince Charming and Fairy God Mother from defrauding Princess Fiona.
