Revisiting the “Shrek” series is like looking back on your relationship with a girl who was totally hot and fun in high school but has lost her looks and grown fat and tired. What was once new and fresh, with plenty of energy and full of...
Like a used and crusted over tube of Shrek brand toothpaste, the jolly green ogre franchise has been irreversibly reduced to a set familiar figures stripped of dignity and forced to sell breakfast cereals and fast food.
This is only going to be a quasi-review. I just saw Puss in Boots and had a most unusual experience. Within the first minute, it became quite apparent that the theater had received the wrong print of the film.
Gore Verbinski and company may have pioneered the children’s spaghetti Western with Rango, but Chris Miller and his crew might just have perfected it in Puss in Boots -- a visually dazzling, high-energy adventure exploring the origins of the swashbuckling

Is Shrek sidekick ‘Puss in Boots’ capable of headlining his own feature film? Or is DreamWorks’ latest animated flick a hollow last-ditch franchise cash-grab? Read our review to find out.
Did you know that Jack and Jill of fairy-tale lore wound up married? So far as I could gather as a child, they were merely brother and sister, and for all we’re told in the Shrek spin-off, Puss in Boots, they might still be. What really matters is that.

“Puss in Boots,” a spin-off of the animated “Shrek” franchise that features Antonio Banderas’ suave and swashbuckling feline, shares an unfortunate similarity with most “Saturday Night Live” sketches: What generally seems to work well in sma
DreamWorks' cunning casting of the silky Spaniard Antonio Banderas as a swashbuckling Puss in Boots pays off, brilliantly, in "Puss in Boots," a star vehicle for the nursery rhyme kitty cat from the "Shrek" movies.
The charming outlaw cat Puss in Boots ( voiced by Antonio Banderas) teams with boyhood friend -turned-enemy Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) to find the magic beans that will lead to the Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.
"Puss in Boots" tells the story of how the cat became such a legend. It's a tale that goes from orphan to hero to outlaw faster than a cat upchucks a hairball. Puss – reunited with blood brother Humpty Dumpty (voiced by Zach Galifianakis)...
“Puss in Boots is pretty funny sometimes, but also pretty generic and pointless.”
Puss in Boots is pretty funny sometimes, but also pretty generic and pointless. If you just want to watch adorable cats being adorable, YouTube is still free of charge.
Ah, Shrek. You are truly the Ogre who keeps giving. After four films featuring you and your pals you’ve stepped aside and given us “Puss in Boots,” a film that is simply, along with your studio-mate “Kung Fu Panda 2,” one of the best animated fi
Puss in Boots never bogs down in sentimentality or shallow angst. There are some good sight gags, some amusing jabs at feline behavior (which is probably doubly humorous to those who actually own the vile, spitting creatures) and decent character work.
Fan The Fire
Puss In Boots is far and away better than anything featuring the green ogre and feels fresh, not having to rely on pop culture references for the vast majority of the comedy. The dialogue is witty and sharp, with excellent comedic timing across...
“It’s never too late to do the right thing,” Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) announces towards the end of his self-titled adventure. Unfortunately, the movie itself has violated us in innumerable ways by then, so he’s lying.
"Puss in Boots" is a well crafted DreamWorks animated movie that succeeds in spite of, rather than with the aid of its extraneous 3D treatment. Silver-tongued Antonio Banderas once again voices the Zorro-like swaggering orange tabby whose lack...
Jackie K. Cooper
Puss ‘n Boots (voiced by Antonio Banderas) was a key character in all the “Shrek movies from “Shrek 2” forward. The problem is he was just a small member of a huge ensemble team.
His name is Puss in Boots, and he's finally got his own movie. He's also thumbing his nose at history—with his claws—because this is that rarity where the spin-off is by and large a success.
Creative Loafing Charlotte
So even though Antonio Banderas' Puss in Boots owned the Shrek franchise from the moment he was introduced in the second film, that was no reason to elevate him to, erm, leading-cat status in Puss in Boots.
"Puss in Boots" may squeak by on name recognition alone, but the film's actual quality is no better than a direct-to-video-level spin-off of the "Shrek" franchise. Sluggish and uninspired, it is in perilously short supply of creativity,
Good kitty! Puss rides again in this Zorro-esque Shrek spinoff, in which the titular gato searches for magic beans while running from the law.
Ever since the character of the hilariously suave and debonair feline known as Puss in Boots made his debut in the other negligible "Shrek 2," there have been talks and rumors about a spin-off film that would have him as the central character. Instead,
In the larger narrative, Puss in Boots may have been in some phase of production since The Aviator was in theaters, but it feels as if its arrival more or less coincides with the recent New York Times puff piece on John Lasseter,
As a spin-off of Shrek, and an attempt to take a popular character and riff on his past, post-ironically, Puss in Boots is passable. In fact, if it wasn't for another CG effort from 2011 stealing its spaghetti western homage thunder, it would be pretty da
The A.V. Club
As a sheer visual experience, Puss In Boots makes a great theme-park ride, a thrill-a-minute feast for the eyes and the semicircular canals.
As the Shrek movies have progressed, the swashbuckling cartoon feline Puss in Boots (zestfully performed by Antonio Banderas) has consistently upstaged the lead ogre and his donkey sidekick.
Time Out New York
He goes by many names, we’re told: El Diablo Gato, Frisky Two-Times, The Gingerhead Man. We call him: One Last Chance to Squeeze More Money Out of the Shrek Franchise.
The Austin Chronicle
This animated spin-off from the completed Shrek trilogy presents the origin story of the green ogre’s sidekick, Puss in Boots.
The film is kind of surprising in some ways. While it hews relatively closely to the semi-"Fractured Fairy Tales" ethos that provided the initial hook for the "Shrek" series...
Animated family films have made a pact with their audience. For our participation – and extra 3D glasses fee – they deliver the latest in computer generated eye candy, familiar voice talent and heroes that always win while making pop culture reference
Reversing the downward spiral of the “Shrek” series, “Puss in Boots” has enough charm and visual delights to compensate for its own storytelling shortcomings.
DreamWorks’ cunning casting of the silky Spaniard Antonio Banderas as a swashbuckling Puss in Boots pays off,brilliantly, in “Puss in Boots,” a star vehicle for the nursery rhyme kitty cat from the “Shrek” movies.
The best part of the last two "Shrek" movies was Antonio Banderas' sly Puss, a feline charmer whose outsized self-image made up for his modest stature.
As animated franchise spin-off contractual agreements go, Puss in Boots could have been worse. A lot worse. Think about the least inspired, most product-placement-riddled and irritating moment of the worst Shrek movie. It could have been like that.
I'm a fan of Antonio Banderas' Puss in Boots, a Latin-lover Zorro so romantic and vain that he's preposterously unaware he's...well, a kitty cat.
In May of 2010, Dreamworks Animation wrapped-up its biggest phenomenon of characters that lasted together for four full-length films-Shrek and friends. With an end, of course, there is always a way to change that: traveling back to the beginning.
Puss in Boots is a spirited and enjoyable computer-animated comedy built around the breakout kitty from Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, and Shrek Forever, highlighted by three energetically choreographed dance numbers that soar so high...
The Baltimore Sun
DreamWorks' cunning casting of the silky Spaniard Antonio Banderas as a swashbuckling Puss in Boots pays off, brilliantly.
Family fun adventure with an occasional wink to the adults. Who doesn’t love Puss in Boots? Even Guillermo del Toro got in on this!
Fear me, if you dare! Shrek's bad kitty gets his own spin-off adventure. But will it leave you purring or coughing up hairballs?
Look, I'm not going to tell you to rush out and go see Dreamworks' new Puss In Boots, but if you have to see it with your kids, or just happen to see it for whatever reason, you have nothing to fear.

"Puss in Boots" takes us back to the title cat's early days, roaming the small towns of Old Mexico as an outlaw, a fighter, and a lover of lady cats. His current quest is to get some magic beans from a pair of raunchy murderers named Jack...
Susan Granger Entertainment Commentaries
Designed as a prequel, this fairy tale/nursery rhyme-based plot revolves around the backstory of Puss and a glib egg named Humpty Alexander Dumpty (voiced by Zach Galifianakis), who became childhood ‘brothers’ in the Spanish orphanage of San Ricardo,
New York Post
Having strip mined every last nickel out of “Shrek,’’ DreamWorks Animation has moved on to “Puss in Boots,’’ a spinoff/prequel centering on one of the franchise’s more amusing one-note characters.
Puss in Boots director Chris Miller was also responsible for Shrek the Third, but this film feels more like the first Shrek in its ability to appeal to both older and younger audiences.
After his success as a supporting player in the Shrek films, the sly cat of cats Puss In Boots gets his own self-titled starring feature and the results are so funny and irresistible audiences are bound to be swept away into this kitty's universe.
Puss in Boots always threatened to steal the show and now he's done it, starring in his own prequel to Shrek with no hint of the green ogre.
I must admit I was a bit wary of Puss in Boots, Dreamworks Animation’s spin-off of its blockbuster Shrek franchise. After its sparkling 2001 debut, the Shrek saga suffered a steady decline in quality over subsequent installments.
After the Shrek series used up its charm on rote third and fourth installments that nevertheless raked in giant piles of box office bullion, the prospect of a spin-off prequel focusing on Antonio Banderas’ swashbuckling,
Sacramento News & Review
The swashbuckling, devil-may-care cat (voice by Antonio Banderas) joins forces with his childhood pal Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and a bewitching feline acquaintance, one Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek),
I'm happy to say Puss in Boots is hardly a Shrek franchise spin-off. The titular character may have had his debut alongside the big green ogre back in 2004, but here he is more than just a smooth-talking, glassy-eyed sidekick.
The Shrek movies may not even exist as far we’re concerned in Puss in Boots, which is fine, because they just kept getting worse; last year’s Shrek Forever After in 3-D felt especially flat. But the franchise reboots anew here, if you’ll pardon the
This has not been a great year for animation, with lackluster sequels to “Kung Fu Panda” and “Cars” seemingly the best Hollywood can do. However, the swashbuckling cat from the “Shrek” movies is here to save the day.
The Critical Critics
It’s the good, the bad, and the catty in Chris Miller’s Puss in Boots, the first action-packed spinoff of the Shrek series, and to the surprise of many,
"Shrek Forever After" was the last in the immensely popular series of films, and with good reason: Mike Myers' domesticated ogre had played out the string in terms of adventures, resulting in a tired, lifeless final installment.
Beyond Shrek, a cat o' fine tales
"Puss in Boots" proves there is at least one cat with multiple lives. The feature-length animated spinoff - a star turn for the popular "Shrek" supporting character voiced by Antonio Banderas - is almost shockingly good. And not just because a lot of you

When Puss in Boots first made his sad kitten eyes in Shrek 2 millions of cat-loving anklebiters found themselves purring in appreciation. So it’s hardly surprising that the Zorro-with-pads-paws’n’claws has now been given his own action adventure...
Film School Rejects
No, sadly, it’s not those adorable flying Donkey-Dragon babies (trivia! Wikipedia tells me they are named Debbie, Coco, Bananas, Peanut, Parfait, and Éclair), but it’s Dreamworks’s own answer to “what would Zorro be like if he was, stop me if you’ve...
Ever since leaping into the Shrek franchise back in 2004, Antonio Banderas’s leather-shod moggie has been a firm favourite, stealing scenes with his quick blade and his big, watery, dontcha-love-me-eyes. With the Shrek adventures seemingly finished...
Preeti Arora thinks Puss in Boots is a fun film, worth one time watch. With the Shrek series having brilliantly concluded with Shrek Forever After last year, Dreamworks was bound to develop a storyline involving another important character.
Puss in Boots is a hearty hoot with a fairy-tale twist created by feline experts who should count themselves as having got the cream and wiped the floor afterwards with other family animations out there at the moment.
Shadows on the Wall
This Shrek spin-off continues the theme of mashing up fairy tales with movie genres, and while there's a slightly stale odour lingering through this prequel, it's also witty enough to keep us laughing.
It’s not usually a good thing to let the cat out of the bag, but in the case of the swashbuckling feline ‘Puss in Boots’, it’s probably the best thing that DreamWorks Animation has done. When Puss first appeared in 2004’s ‘Shrek 2’, the dashing...
His first big adventure involved a beanstalk, a giant’s treasure and a fetching feline named Kitty Softpaws (Hayek)… The Shrek franchise has been DreamWorks’ golden goose — a powerhouse at the box office that has kept popping out shiny dollar signs.
At first I had my doubts about "Puss in Boots." I wasn't too sure a spin-off character from "Shrek" would work, and I didn't figure the character alone, without support from Shrek or Donkey, could maintain my attention for ninety minutes.
Puss in Boots also introduces a fun new character Humpty Dumpty (perfectly voiced by the can't-do-wrong Zach Galifianakis) another chancer who also has his eyes on the magic beans - but will his rocky history with Puss put him in even greater...
Puss In Boots is an entertaining fare, but it will do average business at the Indian box-office because of several reasons, prominent among them being that it is an animation film about a character not popular in India.
Puss in Boots cuts a dash in this standalone CG caper, having already stolen the show from Shrek. Again, Antonio Banderas is effortlessly funny in the role, giving a cool edge to the cute kitty with his soft Spanish growl.
If you saw the posters for this movie and thought to yourself, "Oh God, another cash cow being milked beyond capacity by the money-grubbing misers that run Hollywood?" congratulations, because you and I are basically the same person.
Puss in Boots is a beautifully animated, frequently entertaining adventure with a terrific performance from Antonio Banderas but it's not quite as funny or as sharply written as it should have been.
The Shrek franchise has aged terribly. Once considered the sharpest and most refreshing animation out there, it has since been lapped (and lapped again) by recent Pixar efforts and even one-offs like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
A MILLION ONLINE VIDEOS PROVE two things: cats are cute and cats are funny. When Puss In Boots ticks both those boxes early on, with Antonio Banderas’ cheeky charmer looking more huggable than ever, there’s a sudden fear that our time may be just as..
The swashbuckling ginger cat with a gravelly voice and an attitude to boot might have first shown up in the Shrek movies, but he finally gets his place in the sun as the charming lead of 'Puss in Boots'.
Robbie Collin finds that most of the jokes in Puss in Boots fit into two categories: “Ha ha, he’s Spanish” and “Ha ha, he’s a cat”.
The Shrek series began as a satire on Hollywood’s appropriation of fairy-tale imagery, so it’s ironic that it went on to become a latter-day Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs, yielding an average of £471 million per film.
Unlike Donkey, Puss In Boots has “brand awareness” with a fairytale past that provides plenty of scope for an “origins” story as we learn how he acquired his feathered hat, boots and heroic reputation.
The Sydney Morning Herald
When a rooftop chase early on in Puss in Boots is suddenly and seamlessly transformed into a dance sequence, it's a clear indication that director Chris Miller (Shrek the Third) and his team of animators at least occasionally try to be a little more...
There seems to be two approaches competing against each other in Puss in Boots. On the one hand, it is an extension of the Shrek universe, which the Puss character (voiced by Antonio Banderas) originally hailed from in part two of the franchise.
A mad scientist in The Skin I Live In and a talking cat in Puss in Boots: is there anything Antonio Banderas can't do? With the latter he's lucky to portray the most charismatic character from the Shrek franchise...

Time Out London
Beautifully voiced by Antonio Banderas, Puss in Boots is to ‘Shrek’ what Jack Sparrow is to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ – a rogueish, charismatic scene-stealer who belongs centre stage.

Puss, the boots-wearing, swashbuckling cat from the Shrek franchise, gets his own spin-off movie... also in 3D and IMAX 3D.
Just like the Oscar-nominated Babe cracked the difficult art of synching animal lips to words in good time for the ensuing mouse adventure Stuart Little, there’s a rare sense of joy when you watch a furry little creature talking like this.
In the most underwhelming period for animated fare in quite some time, however, Dreamworks’ Puss in Boots just about pulls ahead of the disappointing likes of Cars 2, Rio, Arthur Christmas and Happy Feet Two as one of the year’s more gathered...
Puss in Boots is Dreamworks’ attempt to shore up the sagging Shrek franchise — now at four movies and counting — with a prequel built around the series’ most charismatic character. Welcome to the story of Puss, as he was known in his pre-shod...
Antonio Banderas puts on the boots once more as the lead in this Shrek spinoff that gives us the background story on Puss, a stray cat who became a hero. Spoofing Hollywood form with sharp claws, Puss in Boots will appeal to all demographics,
It was really nice meeting Mr.Puss in Boots on the screen. A rhythmic existence of what i presume is a combination of tango, salsa and tap dancing is the highlight of the movie.
Puss in Boots was easily the most beloved character in the whole Shrek franchise, because he wasn't just cute, friendly and courageously committed to genuine friendship, he had the depth of character to actually mock himself.
The Globe And Mail
It’s been six years since Antonio Banderas last donned Zorro’s mask on the silver screen.
