Before meeting Shrek, Puss in Boots was an outlaw cat who got in trouble and swept women off their feet. Puss comes across Humpty Dumpty, a former friend who betrayed him years ago, who has returned to offer the cat a chance to claim magic beans. Jack and Jill currently have the magic beans, which are the key to a gold egg-laying goose. The plot isn't very strong, but a ground-breaking story line shouldn't be expected from Puss in Boots. While this movie appears to be a children's film, it's equally for adults. A large problem with Shrek is that the pop culture references feel as if they're trying way too hard. These references are much more subtle in Puss in Boots and gives a more natural flow to it. The humor is hit and miss. The times where it's funny, the laughs are more of chuckles. Puss is a lovable character and I'm glad to see he finally is receiving the recognition he deserved all along. Even if you aren't a cat person, it's difficult to not genuinely like the character of Puss.
The movie Puss in Boots was natively created in 3D. There isn't very much that flies off the screen, but the depth is good. The animation is great as it presents an impressive amount of detail, even with the tint of the 3D glasses. This isn't the best animation out there, but it still has a fantastic amount of clarity that's quite memorable. Audiences will find themselves absolutely immersed by the sound design. The speakers are utilized to their full potential. The visuals are great.
After being skeptical about the results of Puss in Boots, I ultimately enjoyed the film. It's a fun film that never takes itself too seriously. The comedy is there and is as silly as viewers should be expecting. Fans of Puss are sure to be smiling in his or her seat watching this adorable, yet sly cat do what he does best. Puss in Boots is far from greatness, but it manages to be an enjoyable and worthwhile film.
