Puss in Boots

Critics Consensus

It isn't deep or groundbreaking, but what it lacks in profundity, Puss in Boots more than makes up for with an abundance of wit, visual sparkle, and effervescent charm.

  • What kids will get from it is plenty of fairly outrageous but not often witty fun with fairytale elements blended into a kind of latterday spaghetti western. For the rest of us, there is plenty of nice visual detail.

    Dec 9, 2011 | Rating: 3/5
  • It's all amiable stuff, with a perfectly decent script, and the feline hero lapping his milk gets an indulgent laugh.

  • Most of the jokes fit into two categories: "Ha ha, he's Spanish" and "Ha ha, he's a cat".

  • Puss in Boots is very jolly for an hour. Then, like Santa Claus misjudging a chimney, it gets stuck at the moment we hope it will break free and distribute the festive gifts.

  • this western-parodying cat-with-too-many-names is closer to Rango than to anything from the Kingdom of Far Far Away.

    Dec 8, 2011 | Rating: 3/5
  • 'Puss in Boots' is uneven, but when it's on course, cat fans will be in heaven.

    It's enough to expand its Shrek universe and embrace its surprisingly charming side-character. Puss in Boots' solid CGI, star-studded voice cast and loveable charm hides the hairball of mishaps in plot that congested the film. 3.5/5

    Better then it has any right to be, Puss in Boots is not only action packed and clever, but also reignites the Shrek universe with renewed purpose - and renewed heart.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen this before but I just can't remember when exactly. Anyway, I had to see this some sort of spin-off since Puss is my favorite character from the Shrek series. However, it isn't nearly as good as any of the Shrek movies I've seen.

    Unexpectedly decent. After a couple of Shrek sequels that were pushing the jokes and twists too hard, Chris Miller makes a second attempt to make something worwhile in the perseverant Dreamworks Animation Studios, and the result is good enough to be called a smart treatment of classical adventures, creatively transitioning from a western, to an adventure film, to a homage of magical fairy tales and action-packed thrills, everything with its Spanish colonial touch. I liked its constant transition styles. This is the minimum level that spinoffs should aim at. 65/100
