On October 16, 2011 many people went to the movie theaters to go see a movie about a cat in boots fighting the fairy tale characters Jack and Jill over three magic beans with a sword, while wearing a sombrero. Nobody expected this side character with whiskers to get his own movie.
This movie is none other than Puss in Boots but where did this cat come from? And why was this movie so well received?
The Puss made his first debut in the movie Shrek 2, but this character was so well liked that Dreamworks made him his own movie. The main character is a talking cat who wears a hat, cape, belt, and boots whilst also wielding a sword, also steals from the rich and gives to the poor.
Personally I think Puss in Boots: The Last Wish was better than the first one. I think this due to the animation, the animation was so slick and smooth especially the combat scenes. I have no doubt the animators took their time with every sense because it most definitely paid off. Puss in Boots really was worth the eleven year wait.
Antonio Banderas aka the voice a Puss came back for the second movie, so did Salma Hayek for the role of Kitty Softpaws. One character that I really enjoyed the voice acting was from Wagner Moura who played the Wolf. Each line he said really did bring chills up my spine.
Now comparing imdb scores from the first movie to the second, the second movie did relatively better from the first movie, the first movie received a 6.6/10 rating. The second movie got a 7.9/10 rating.
But surprisingly the first Puss in Boots made a tad bit more money than the second one according to boxofficemojo.com, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish made $394,119,970 worldwide while the first Puss in Boots made $554,987,477. I think too soon to count the profits but up to right now the original is dominating.
