Movie: Puss in Boots
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis
Outlaw, adventurer, and above all, irresistible charmer. Puss, who entered into the Shrek franchise in the second movie, seems to have an inscrutable and enigmatic past. This prequel, which hit screens recently, tells the story of Puss, which happens, before he meets Shrek.Story begins with Puss getting to know about the murderous outlaws Jack and Jill, who had the magic beans, which, Puss was looking for all his life.
Puss tries to steal it, and runs into Kitty softpaws, and later, to Humpty Alexander Dumpty — the talking egg, was also Puss’ long estranged childhood friend. They were raised together in an orphanage, but they had parted ways when Humpty deceived puss into committing a crime, and destroyed all his reputation. Puss, Humpty and Kitty softpaws decide to join hands together to get the magic beans, which would eventually lead them to the castle, where there is a goose, laying golden eggs. Then unfolds a saga of adventure, treachery, love, and much more.
Dynamic and engaging
Puss in Boots is full of high paced action, and it will keep you involved all the time. It never loses the momentum even a wee bit, and it concludes, just at the right time. 3D has never looked so good in an animation movie, and it just made the ride much more enjoyable, especially, in the scenes where the trio takes on Jack and Jill for the beans. Voice cast has done very well, especially Antonio Banderas with his husky voice and thick Spanish accent. The script is very well written and it has enough laughs, to make you feel contended while you leave the movie hall. Just because of the familiar fairytale characters, kids would be able to relate instantly, and the soundtracks and the dance scenes would make them delighted. After all, this was a movie which was in Dreamwork’s plan, for the last seven years. Zach Galifianakis, who has taken us through a laugh riot in “Hangover”, keeps up the good work here.
Bottomline: Thoroughly enjoyable. Grab some popcorn, sit back and watch.
