From Amazon.co.uk

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

4.0 out of 5 stars The legend of the puss in the boots 10 May 2012
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ah ha! With the Shrek franchise having run it's natural life, you might have thought you would have seen the last of the characters from it. But that was not the case. With Dreamworks animation looking to see if any of the supporting characters from Shrek might be worthy of a movie on their own, there was only one logical choice.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 26 Jun 2012
By GratuitousViolets TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Honestly, I was a bit doubtful that Dreamworks could really pull off taking such a well known and loved character from a series of much-loved movies to make into its own entity and make Puss in Boots the main star of a feature, but I was pleasantly surprised here. Not only did Dreamworks carry this task off so flawlessly, but in my opinion they actually managed to make "Puss in Boots" much better than any of the Shrek sequels.

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.
