Puss in Boots
Directed by Chris Miller
Starring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek and Zach Galifianakis
I never understood why a cat outwitted a king or some sort. The cat should be the antagonist of the story and not the other way around.
Or so I thought. Pardon me if I have poor judgment and analytic skills when I was little.
But anyway, soon after watching the first movie of Shrek, I started to admire this feline hero. Puss is actually not your ordinary hero. Armed with swift moves and big, beautiful eyes, Puss would surely win every adventure that he had (and also win every female cat's heart). Nonetheless, after watching his very first solo movie, I have realized that our feline friend deserved to be revered as a hero.
What makes Puss' first solo movie special is its story itself. Like any other heroes, human or animal, Puss had a very sad but interesting story to tell. But that's not it. Apart from the stunning scenery like the "wild wild west", the urban slums and the cloud castle, the funny mash-up of all nursery rhyme characters were there too. One wouldn't expect that the innocent Jack and Jill who just tumbled down the hill after fetching a pail water would be the most sinister-looking thieves in the movie! And who would've thought that the magic beans would be the center of the story! But the bulk of the followers of Jack's adventure takes the bean stalk and hunt for golden eggs. Yes, the golden eggs.
I laughed at almost every scenes of the movie, and yes, both children and adults can relate to it!
Overall, this movie is perfect for people who seek nothing but pure fun and excitement.
