Puss in Boots 3D

February 24, 2012

Dove Approved for All Ages

What a delightful movie, I loved it! It is original, yet contains the pussy cat from the "Shrek" films, Puss in Boots himself (voiced by Antonio Banderas).

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I was concerned they would simply rehash all of the old material from the first three films. And although there are bound to be a few repeat jokes, they are kept fresh [...]

"Take the Lead" works in showing changes and growth in the characters. These characters wouldn't have dreamed of entering a ballroom dancing competition when they first met dance instructor Pierre Dulaine (Antonio Banderas), but this is exactly what happens. Any film which includes a song by Nat [...]

"My family is my life" is Zorro's new slogan and he means it. Director Martin Campbell could have gone either way with this fun filled, action-packed saga. While he may have come close to pushing the limits with this film, he manages to reel himself in several times and presents the viewer with an [...]
