So arguably, the greatest character from Shrek that isn't donkey gets his own big screen outing, and this is so much better than the green ones last two efforts.
From the upstart, it has endless hints of Desperado about it, and this is too it's credit.
The story is fantastic and the narration is played well, only having a few back stories to 'litter' the film. The voice cast are great with what they do, and even though it's not as high calibre as Pixar, or other Dreamworks animation, the film as a stand alone is almost purr-fection.
Banderas seems to be having a ball playing the titular character, and the final third is satisfying, if yet a little predictable. There is enough innuendo to keep adults happy, and the 3D is good, particularly the first few minutes.
It's not going to be remembered like other animated films, but it's a nice alternative...
