Puss in Boots is a highly amusing little diversion that will mesmerise the kids and hopefully give the adults a naughty little cackle as well.

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.

Puss In Boots is as good as the first Shrek and, at its best, touches on the genius of Shrek 2.

Though Puss was an entertaining subsidiary character in Shrek 2, he fails to convince as a leading character.

As you'd expect with DreamWorks, the animation is smooth and the 3D impressive, particularly when Puss and his partners in crime ride a giant beanstalk up into the heavens.

Chaotic yet beautifully arranged, sensuous yet innocent ... Cat lovers will be in kitty heaven.

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".

That suave, scene-stealing cat from Shrek 2 finally gets his own swashbuckling adventure and it couldn't be a more colourful feline fairy tale.

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.

Just a whisker away from being the cat's whiskers.

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

Every time Puss opened his mouth to speak I was so captivated by his gnashers they helped to make this one of the most entertaining animations I've seen since The Incredibles and Happy Feet.

What the film boast in charm and exuberance, it sadly lacks in emotional core, and while there isn't really any depth to the bonds formed over the 90 minutes, it's still a great family-friendly action-comedy.

Purr-fect fun for rugrats mourning the end of the Shrek series.

It may be ogre-free, but it's a monster of a movie.

Entertaining spin-off enlivened by a terrific voice performance from Shrek scene-stealer Antonio Banderas and colourful animation work but the script is weak and the film blows all its best gags early on.

Puss in Boots is a Shrek spin-off, which might seem pointless in addition to predictable.

'Puss in Boots' is uneven, but when it's on course, cat fans will be in heaven.

Where the visuals fail, the script does not pick up the slack. [The] screenplay plods along, and not even the occasional prison-rape joke can make it come to life.
