Like any spin-off based on a character from a franchising, they reproduce what made her a classic as many times as possible. In the case of Puss, his puppy eyes (or kitten eyes) are used as an excuse for everything. We get the joke once, move on Dreamworks.
Much better than the Shrek films that spawned them. Banderas and Hayek seem to having a lot of fun as stereotypical Spanish swashbucklers. I liked the lovingly detailed "Spain" of the setting. Also this will now hold a special place in my heart as my daughter's first movie.
I loved this movie. Felt like an actual adventure without the obnoxiousness of the Shrek series. Everything was resolved too tidily, though. I don't get people rating stuff 1 star just because they don't like it.
Animated cats with the voice of Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek - what could go wrong? A talking EGG??? What the hell was they thinking? Oh... the agony of the story and the rest of the movie. Terrible.
While it lacks the embarrassing jokes of the Shrek franchise, this spin-off while fun feels like a 70 minute movies stretched into 90 minutes. Could've improved with a shorter movie or a more engaging screenplay.
Seriously? my 8 years old niece almost fell asleep over past nearly 20 minutes. And she was all enthusiast about going to see this movie. The first half was so boring and in the second the screenplay was so far-fetched... even I had been confused. The puss only starts to move on this second half too ;) Good trailer though...
Intermittently funny and cute, the new Shrek spin-off is disappointingly all fluff and no bite. It feels like a wasted opportunity as 2-D/flat characters populate a 3-D world. It reeks of it's direct-to-video fate and shamefully lets good voice work and animation weave it into a cotton candy glob.
