    Puss in Boots: The Last Wish
    Arrogant and extremely confident Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) loses his eighth life in a glorious opening fight scene and is now pursued by a red eyed wolf creature introducing himself as 'Death'. This terrifies PIB who escapes, sans sword to a cat's home only to acquire a map to the wishing star where he can wish to get all his lives back. Accompanied by his new doggy pal Perrito and possible love interest Kitty Softpaws they go in search of the star, but remain in competition with Goldilocks and the three bears crime family and the evil Big Jack Horner, whilst Death is never far behind

    Aside from the extremely impressive animation, this is a fun, exciting, quite dark in places and genuinely funny ride. The voice talents are pretty famous and all very good with a special mention for Wagner Mourna, quite intimidating as the whistling Death. Great fun for big and little kids alike.

    Some of These Sequels Are Getting Further and Further Apart
    It's been a long time since "Puss in Boots." So long in fact I forgot that Salma Hayek was one of the voices. So long that Antonio Banderas' voice has gotten raspier and deeper.

    Puss in Boots (Banderas) was still the cocky cat he was in the first PIB. But he was knocked down a peg when he lost the eighth of his nine lives. That put him in a bit of a rut that indelibly altered him.

    Before the end he'd go on an adventure to find a wishing star with Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and a quirky dog named Perrito (Harvey Guillen). Their adventure would put them at odds with Goldilocks (Florence Pugh) and the three bears (Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone, and Samson Kayo), and Jack Horner (John Mulaney).

    "The Last Wish" was a fun and funny tale that was morally good and heartwarming.

    $6.99 on Carnival Cruise.

    Beyond good, 10 is not enough!!!
    I honestly expected fart jokes and dum dum humor, but honestly the way this MASTERPIECE balances out the funny and the scary and the serious and just everything is amazing!!!

    The flow doesn't seem forced and it's just smooth sailing, every character has sense for being there even some you don't expect. The way the heroes are driven the motivations and the way the characters are written are on another level!

    The animation style is a subject for itself! I wouldn't he surprised if it got an award for the best animated film of the year!

    DreamWorks is really doing stuff well but where I must take my hat of is the main villain.. The way it gives the puss motivation and the subtle hints and timings of him on the screen are perfectly executed, I've watched it 3 times now, tomorrow is time for the part 4.

    Definitely absolutely recommend it!

    I never write reviews but...
    Yes, it's really that good, and well worth your time and money, go support this movie! It's nothing short of incredible, what a pleasant surprise... All three antagonists are phenomenal, and honestly work quite well with the direction of the plot. Character development is great, especially Puss's arc with him beginning to appreciate the value of his life, because he's down to his last one, along with kitty soft paws and perrito being very charming and likable. This movie is mature with its message, clever, funny, entertaining, and a family friendly movie. Death is my favorite character by far, his dialogue and the commanding, intimating, and cool voice he brings to his lines in the voice acting is super effective. This movie provides you with a 100 minute escape that is a blast, "straight up." 🙃

    Psychological Drama
    This is no longer a children's cartoon. This is a powerful psychological drama. The search for the meaning of life, panic attacks, the battle with death itself. The cartoon will appeal to both children and adults. Children will laugh at funny moments. But adults will have a lot to think about. You can talk about the main villain forever. The wolf turned out super-charismatic. Cartoon impersonation of Christoph Waltz. When viewing, you get the feeling that you are in the cartoon universe of Quentin Tarantino's characters. The final scene will definitely not leave anyone indifferent. Definitely a recommendation to watch.

    Simply spectacular
    It is, without a doubt, the most visually impressive movie I saw this year, and I watched Avatar 2 like a week ago. Mind blowingly good looking, Puss in Boots also hits right in the feels when it needs to : I cried multiple times during my viewing, and I was the first one surprised. It's all about family and valuing the ones around you, and good lord, these characters are so touching sometimes.

    I had a big smile on my face for most of it because what I was watching was AWESOME. Simple warning : if you go watch this movie with little kids around 4, 5 years old, they might get really impressed, even scared, by some scenes. My 4 years old niece was not that scared, and you can definitely go watch it with childrens, but know that this movie takes itself REALLY seriously sometimes (which is a good thing)

    This is Actually Very Dark, Gloomy and Intense for a Family Movie
    This funny, charming and adorable, yet often quite dark, gloomy and intense Puss in Boots adventure isn't your typical cash-grabbing kids' movie. It's been over a decade since the first Puss in Boots movie, which was a spin-off in the Shrek franchise featuring the loveable ginger cat in tiny boots wielding a mini sword. But this is unashamedly the best they've done since the first and second Shrek movies.

    When Puss in Boots learns that he's already burnt through eight of his nine lives, he embarks on an epic quest to find the mythical wishing star to restore his lives. Get it? Because cats have nine lives? Anyway, it's a pretty simple storyline that doesn't sound, and isn't really too complicated. However, this movie isn't getting all the praise for its animation techniques, vocal performances and all of that, although it definitely deserves major credit for the cast's brilliant work and the gorgeous 3D animation style that likes to pick some moments to do in a clever, witty 2D.

    Forgivably, you can never expect a family comedy in theatres that isn't guaranteed to have its extended moments of silly humour, but these very occasional scenes don't overtake the heavy themes this movie wants to consider, which is actually life and death. There are three parties of antagonists, some who are more villainy than the others, but there's fairy tale characters Goldilocks, the three bears and Jack Horner, and similar to the party this movie features as the protagonists, they all have meaning, struggles and thoughtful backstories to them. But it's the main villain who appears as a whistling wolf who provides the sense of dread. And when you take into consideration villain construction, appearances and overall sense of menace, he's one of the best antagonists of the year.

    An Unexpected Masterpiece
    This might be one of the best-animated films to come out in the past 5 years. The animation looks amazing. The characters are all likable and endearing, the voice cast did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life. The story is one of the best I've seen from Dreamworks in my opinion. The movie isn't afraid to take dark topics such as mortality. The antagonists are some of the best villains in any Dreamworks Film, And the film is emotional when It wants to be. Go Watch This Film, It's worth your time and money. I hope we get more films like this from Dreamworks, And I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did.

    Good message! Loved every minute of it...
    I think this is the best animation movie of the year. Amazing job as usual by DreamWorks Team. Mesmerizing views and story!

    The animations first of all is just so amazing (modern styled)-it really got me to the edge of my seat looking at the flashes and the bright colours. And there were the antagonists which were AMAZING especially Big Bad Wolf. I mean haven't seen any other movie where the villain makes a cool-spooky entrance (it literally gave me chills). The comedy and jokes were also pretty fun to watch and listen to it.

    And thats why if you're a big fan of comedy/drama/fantasy/adventure/magic check this movie out and see it for yourself.

    Always been a Shreks Franchaise Fan. Its good too see they've really done justice to this franchaise as well.

    Can't wait for new advenrure of Puss In Boots!
