Finally, there's a cat even cooler than Garfield who will win the box office as well as a place on your favorites list. His name is Puss and he wears boots.

Puss offers strong CGI charisma, and with a tighter narrative focus than Shrek, it's safe to say that DreamWorks has another franchise-worthy golden goose.

Clever and witty enough for adults and colorful and zany enough for children. Moreover, it's adventurous enough for anyone to like, no matter what their age.

Puss proves more than capable and deserving of the solo spotlight, his outsize bravado, machismo, ego spilling out beyond the big screen in fiercely funny feline fashion.

Avoids all the worst tendencies of the later Shrek movies.

With Banderas' scene-stealing feline finally getting his own film, the franchise now has a worthy successor to the two original Shrek movies.

I'm pretty sure that the reason Antonio Banderas was put on this planet was to make Puss in Boots speak... [H]ilariously and endlessly inventive...

There are betrayals and double-crosses galore, rattling chases and swish sword fights, fleeting visual gags, mischievous verbal jokes and, best of all, a frisky flamenco dance-off between Puss and Kitty that will leave the viewer purring with pleasure.

Puss's boots are delectable things which could almost have been the product of that classic fairy tale, The Elves and the Shoemaker ( ... ) and every time ( ... ) we see those little gnashers, the film is a technical marvel.

While its fairytale-inspired premise lacks the subversive wit of the better Shrek films, Puss in Boots is an agreeably snappy, visually enticing yarn nonetheless.

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.
