Puss in Boots Trailer
Thanks to an entry to Nuffnang's Giveaway, I managed to score a pair of tix to watch Puss in Boots. From supporting cast in the Shrek installment, Puss (or shall I say, Diablo Gato/The Furry Lover/Chupa Cabra/Frisky Two Times / The Gingerhead) has finally managed to get his own movie of fame.
If you've remembered Puss, you'll expect Spanish accent from the gato, ridiculous involvement of fairy tails we all grew up with, stereotypical cat actions, and of course, the big shiny eyes. Also, the movie tells us the origin of Puss, from a little-cuteness-overload kitten to the Puss we all know.
Can't get over this image of Puss
Puss (voiced by Antonio Banderas) is portrayed to the liking of Zorro, swashbuckler actions are no stranger to the film. Puss is on a mission, to clear his name after an unfortunate incident (being pulled into doing a crime with his friend, Humpty 'Alexander' Dumpty) in the place he grew up in, San Ricardo.
I liked the twist where Jack (voiced by Billy Bob Thornton) and Jill (voiced by Amy Sedaris), who went up the hill and fetched a pail of water is portrayed as villains in the show, and the involvement of the Beanstalk story is genius. So basically they're the main villain of the show, or is it? Humpty Dumpty (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) seems to be fishy all along the movie.
And as every hero would need, a pretty pussy, I mean, lady on his side. There's where Kitty Softpaws (voiced by Salma Hayek) comes in, somewhat a resemblance of Catwoman. LOL
The Spanish flavor (music and vocabulary) added in this film was actually refreshing, and I enjoyed the flamenco dance off between the cats in the club called Glitter Box, pretty intense I would say :)
Overall, it's an adventure of redemption that is worth watching in cinemas in 3D or otherwise.
Though it may not have much of sexual innuendos like we'll find in Shrek, this movie is still one of the many Dreamwork produced movies I truly enjoy.
Notable rising star : The Oooo Cat who made 3 appearances in the movie after embarrassing moments in the film.
