DreamWorks’ ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’ is Pure Purr-fection!

GameStop, Inc.

DreamWorks’ ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘ is Better than ‘Shrek‘ and ‘How to Train Your Dragon‘!

While over at Disney where the Bobs have been jocking for positioning of who really holds the power at the House of Mouse, which as of Sunday is Bob Iger, DreamWorks Animation’s mogul, Margie Cohn has been killing it since taking the reins in 2019.

Under Cohn DreamWorks Animation has been giving audiences untouchable features such as, ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World‘, ‘Abominable‘, ‘Trolls: World Tour‘, ‘The Bad Guys‘ and a handful of others, but in returning to the ‘Shrek’ Universe, Cohn and company have struck gold with ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘!

DreamWorks was able to turn ‘Oceans 11‘ into the family friendly heist film ‘The Bad Guys‘, which has continued the ball rolling for this animation juggernaut under Cohn. Now with ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘ the revitalization of a character that showed up in 2004’s ‘Shrek 2‘ landed on its feet making it better than the film franchise that turned the Italian cat into a dashing Spaniard.

Antonio Banderas returns as the swashbuckling feline only to learn that he has used up eight of his nine lives. For the first time in his life, Puss has experienced fear as The Big Bad Wolf (Wagner Moura) shows up in the form of Death to collect his last remaining life.

However, all is not lost as a map leading him to the Wishing Star could restore not only his confidence but add another eight lives for him to squander away.

Returning to the franchise is Salma Hayek as Kitty Softpaws to create a balance between the masculine and feminine energies that unite humanity even if the characters walk on all fours.

The performance that steals the show is Harvey Guillén as Perro, a chihuahua who even after being abused and abandoned by his litter, owners and anyone he has come in contact with, remains joyful during the eyes of adversity. Neither Kitty nor Puss believe anyone could be as optimistic as Perro, both of which have hardened their hearts for bear of being hurt again.

John Mulaney plays Jack Horner (who appears to look like Nick Kroll if he was morbidly obese) as a man who was given the world with loving, affluent parents, a stable home life and keys to a bakery empire, but greed has driven him to want to hoard all the magic in the world for himself.

Florence Pugh as Goldilocks along with Ray Winstone, Olivia Colman and Samson Kayo as The Three Bears, being a crime family was absolutely brilliant.

Every nursery rhyme and fairytale from the world of Mother Goose and the Brothers Grimm were touched upon in the same manner of ‘Shrek‘, only better. There was not a single hick up making ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘ pure perfection.

Paul Fisher’s writing and the directorial team of Joel Crawford and Januel Mercado make ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘ surpass the original 2011 film.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘ comes to theaters on Friday, December 21, 2022.

Summary

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘ is Pure Purr-fection!…and this is coming from someone deathly allergic to cats.
