Way before he ever met Shrek, the legendary Puss in Boots goes on a heroic journey, teaming up with mastermind Humpty Dumpty and the street-savvy Kitty Softpaws to steal the famed goose that lays the Golden Eggs.
In this fractured fairy tale, Jack and Jill have the magic beans and Humpty Dumpty, with the aid of Kitty Softpaws, convinces his old friend Puss in Boots to help him steal the beans so they can climb the beanstalk to get to the golden eggs. Never mind that Humpty Dumpty and Puss in Boots had a falling out years ago, or that Jack and Jill are completely preoccupied by their squabbling over whether or not to have a child--and regardless that Puss in Boots is a wanted cat who's sworn off his thieving ways, and Kitty Softpaws is a cat burglar who works alone. Comedy abounds in this film, not only in the twists and turns of some classic fairy tales gone awry, but with scenes that range from a litter-box dance fight between crowds of cats to Jack expressing his paternal instincts by strapping on a baby carrier filled with a piglet in a diaper, and, of course, Puss in Boots' crafty use of his famous sad eyes to get just what he wants. The animation is top-notch (especially in the mass cat scenes), the music is compelling, and the voice talents of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zack Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton, and Amy Sedaris are solid. While considered by some to be a prequel of sorts to the four Shrek films, Puss in Boots is definitely a stand-alone spinoff. What the films do share is a common comedic interpretation of some well-known fairy-tale characters and knack for spinning a funny story that appeals to both kids and adults. While a heightened sense of peril and some extended fight scenes may prove a bit intense for the youngest and most sensitive audience members, Puss in Boots is generally appropriate for ages 7 and older. --Tami Horiuchi

And thus Puss in Boots is back.
In a movie that takes place some unspecified amount of time before his first appearance in Shrek Two.
The film sees him in the position he was in back at the start of his first film in that. A sword for hire. And one with a past. One which comes back to haunt him when a cat burglar called Kitty Softpaws drags him into a get rich quick scheme. Which puts them up against two outlaws. And a figure from Puss's past.
Can he save the day, get the money and the lady, and redeem himself at the same time?
Styled like a cross between a spaghetti western and a Zorro movie at first, this gets both styles exactly right from the off. The attention to detail in the animation and the character design is very impressive. It gets more into fairytale territory as it goes along. It does have the Shrek style of slighty twisted versions of traditional fairy tales - bringing us Jack and Jill as a pair of hillbilly bandits. And it's not laugh out loud a minute funny, all occasional bits of humour coming out of character interaction.
Kitty Softpaws, despite good work from Salma Hayek with the voice, and her natural chemistry with Antonio Banderas, isn't quite the strongest of characters, but that's only a minor complaint.Read more ›
Puss in Boots plays mainly as a prequel to Shrek and has no real ties to the story or characters in Shrek (other than Puss in those films). As far as this story goes, it exists completely outside of the same fairytale kingdom that Shrek lives in and remains outside of any Shrek storylines, so it's easy to focus on this film as a stand-alone story rather than a sequel or a continuation.
The storyline is easy to follow (an explanation of Puss's origins as well as a plot revolving around his association with Humpty Dumpty and a quest to find the Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs); while the film is primarily aimed at children, it suits adults just fine and is definitely entertaining enough with just those tiny hints of subtle adult humour that Shrek was famous for.
One thing I enjoyed about this production is that the voice cast (while still quite well known) was much smaller and more intimate than what I'd expected (from experience of watching Shrek), therefore it was easier to focus on the story rather than spend time sitting wondering which famous actors I was hearing and having it distract me throughout the feature. Selma Hayek and Antonio Banderas work brilliantly together and Zach Galifianakis is a natural voice artist in his performance of Humpty 'Alexander' Dumpty.
All in all a very enjoyable film and well worth the watch; definitely something adults and children can enjoy together and something that even adults will find reason to laugh out loud at.
His first solo outing is a prequel to the SHREK films and explains how the legendary feline gained his famous reputation.
In his younger days, Puss lived in an orphanage in the small town of San Ricardo. Befriended by the kind owner Imelda (CONSTANCE MARIE), Puss is soon led astray by his new friend Humpty Alexander Dumpty (ZACH GALIFIANKAS) and, after trouble with the local guards and Commandante (GUILLERMO DEL TORO), the pair have to flee.
A fateful encounter on a bridge leaved Humpty cracked and at the mercy of the pursuing soldiers while Puss makes good his escape.
Years later, Puss is on the trail of some mythical magical beans, now in the hands of the roguish pair Jack (BILLY BOB THORNTON) and Jill (AMY SEDARIS). His quest leads him to cross paths once again with Humpty, who seems a reformed character from the old days, and the mysterious and athletic feline Kitty Softpaws (SALMA HAYEK).
Can the trio steal the beans from under the noses of the watchful Jack and Jill? Furthermore, will the beans actually work if planted and create a beanstalk leading all the way to the Giants castle and the fabled Golden Goose?
Special Features are numerous here, which is nice. They include a Spot The Difference section (ideal for younger children) plus three storyboard-only cut scenes.Read more ›
