Puss in Boots is a computer-animated action adventure with a touch of Latin flair. It integrates characters from famous nursery rhymes and fairy tales into one story for the kids, but it includes a lot of humor for parents as well.
Voiced by Antonio Banderas, Puss is an escapee bounty hunter who enters a nearby town to take refuge. He begins looking for magical beans, and his search leads him to a giant castle that houses valuable golden goose eggs. Humpty Dumpty is a childhood friend of Puss, who introduces him to Kitty Softpaws, but then becomes jealous and betrays him. Puss gives Humpty a second chance and the three of them join forces to find the goose that lays the golden eggs.
During their quest, Humpty once again betrays Puss and lures him into captivity, but Kitty, who is beginning to fall in love with Puss, helps him escape from prison. When Mother Goose comes looking for the golden goose and spreads terror throughout the town, Puss gives Humpty yet another chance, so they can fight Mother Goose together. Humpty sacrifices himself to save the town and the goose when he falls off a bridge and cracks into a golden egg. Puss is hailed as the hero of his town, but is still considered an outlaw, so he has to flee his hometown. Then an epilogue ends with Puss kissing Kitty.
Overall, Puss in Boots is a fun, enjoyable animated movie. The characters are adorable, the visuals are stunning, and the music is fantastic. Dreamworks Animated Films and director Chris Miller did a great job of creating a film that appeals to both children and adults, and Salma Hayek, Billy Bob Thornton, and Amy Sedaris also lend their voices to the film.
