That suave, scene-stealing cat from the Shrek series finally gets his own swashbuckling adventure and it couldn't be a more colourful feline fairy tale. The dashing Puss (impeccably voiced by Antonio Banderas) finds romance with slinky Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) as they team up with Puss's former partner-in-crime Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) on a quest for a golden goose. This lively romp veers delightfully between Mother Goose, Zorro and a Sergio Leone western, and is lovely to look at, cleverly written (with minimal in-jokes, thank goodness) and beautifully visualised. Everything from the hilarious dance fights to the swooping chases up beanstalks and over bridges are superbly choreographed and consistently exciting. The cat puns are rife yet always amusing, and while that cute big eyes gag is used quite a few times, it never gets old.


The swashbuckling feline joins forces with a cunning thief and a treacherous old friend to steal a magical golden goose from a giant's castle. He must save the day when it transpires that their actions have unleashed a terrible danger on his home town. Animated comedy spin-off from the Shrek movies, with the voices of Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek.
