The plot is pretty good and surprisingly convoluted with some decent surprises as we get to see Puss In Boots’ origin story. Flashbacks are integrated with a decent action-adventure. Animation, character design, and backgrounds are actually a bit better than the Shrek sequence, natural for evolving technology, but without as many embedded jokes as we’ve become used to in “Far Faraway.”
Voice acting by Banderas as Puss, Salma Hayek as “Kitty Softpaws,” and Zach Galifianakis as the scheming “Humpty Dumpty”, is good, and it’s fun to find out in the credits that bad guys “Jack and Jill,” were voiced by Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris, and that Guillermo Del Toro did character voices as well.
Pure fun, and enjoyable for most ages, although young kids will miss some innuendos. Action sequences might be intense for the very young.
