Antonio Banderas will be remembered for a lot of roles, but to an entire generation he will simply be Puss in Boots. Let’s be honest, he didn’t really fit in Shrek’s world because he’s not a fable, but in his own world, fables don’t really fit. Dreamworks took probably the coolest character from one franchise and gave him his own, only to see that not every cat has nine lives. I rated movie three stars on my IMDb profile from seeing it in the theater. After watching it again, I was reminded how this was such a terrible mesh up of some Spanish cats and a really bad “friend” Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis). Whether it was the rather uneventful back story, or the trip to get a golden egg, nothing seem like it really fit. I feel this was a waste of time for Antonio, but it was a golden opportunity to show his roots and his Spanish flare. If you search Netflix you will find many Puss in Boots specials. I have never watched any of them because I couldn’t handle this one. Maybe you can tell me if any of them are good or not. 2/10
