“Based on the famous Puss’N Boots character by Charles Perrault, The True Story of Puss’N Boots is a tale of a young farmer’s son that inherits a strange talking cat with magical boots. With his cunning wit, Puss helps him win the heart of the Princess while battling devious suitors that are after the throne.”
Pros: The animation and the scenery were really good! We also liked the music, too. It uses classical pieces that have been revamped and it was fun to hear familiar melodies throughout. Those are the two things that were good in the movie.
Cons: First off, the voices of the cat and the queen. William Shatner was the voice of the cat and he was sooooo weird! Granted, the cat was supposed to be weird, but he was weird in a super-creepy way. As for the queen, throughout the entire movie she was slurring her words and almost sounded like she was really, really (cough) drunk. Second, the characters were not very likeable and did not have many valuable traits. Throughout the movie there was always someone lying to somebody else and there was a lot of insulting. Not exactly the type of phrases a parent wants their young children to pick up from a movie and use in real life situations.
This movie is definitely for the younger age crowd and my kiddos have been asking to watch it again. Unfortunately, it is not something I will be letting them watch much.
