Directed by Chris Miller, Puss in Boots is about the events leading up to the sword fighting cat’s meeting with Shrek and his friends. He teams up with Humpty Dumpty and street-savvy Kitty to steal the famed Goose that lays the golden eggs.
Even though he is of small size, Puss can fight any larger opponent because he is skilled with a sword and has such fast maneuvers he dances around his enemies. His trade mark is using his cute nature by staring up at his foes with an innocent, wide-eyed expression, which softens any heart.
In the first Shrek movie he practically stole the show, if it wasn’t for Donkey. The energetic voice of Antonio Banderas creates a unique character that I truly enjoy watching. I just hope Puss in Boots isn’t saturated with this one character. Hopefully, we will be introduced to other fun, loving characters like Donkey, Shrek and Fiona.
