Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is a fun film with great animation even though the story is a big trope!!!
4 Gatos y Perros
What I Like:
-The animation for this film was great, reminded me of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which made it amazingly fun
-The voice casting made it fun as well, the casting was appropriate where it had to be with its Latin characters, and it sounded like everyone was having fun voicing their roles
-I also dug the soundtrack, the Spanish guitar always has a way of bringing joy to my ears
The So So:
-Did it really need a sequel, probably not, but it was a joyful welcome to the Shrek franchise, and it is a spinoff I actually care about
What I Didn’t Like:
-The story is all too familiar, they went with the hero retiring trope, and then the comeback, and all the subplots are tropey as well
It’s funny, I barely remember the first film with the character of Puss in Boots. With that said, hearing Antonio Banderas voice in this character brings me back to the funness that it brings. The casting was perfect and appropriate, the humor was funny, and even though the story is all too familiar, it was a good time for the whole family to enjoy. It does set up for another Shrek movie, but we’ll wait and see if that happens. For now, we can just enjoy this part of the franchise!!!
4 Gatos y Perros
(Sidenote: Emily the Criminal – This made for Millenials in dealing with some of their issues. Especially when it comes to student loans and how hard it is to get a good job. For the beautiful Aubrey Plaza’s character, she resorts to other things that leads to more trouble. With all that said, this film could’ve been more powerful than it really was. Instead, it was a little dull with their story. Still an interesting watch!!!
