    Granted, I like cats, and I liked the character of Puss In Boots from the Shrek movies, so I was pre-disposed to enjoy this full-length feature of Puss In Boots, and I saw it in 3D as well. The first 20 minutes are really entertaining, then it hits a bit of a lull as Puss reveals his origin and his relation to Humpty Dumpty, and then it's off on the main plot of the film that involves magic beans, giant bean stalks, castles in the sky, etc. They made good use of the 3D for many kinetic scenes featuring running, jumping, sliding, and flying. What I find really funny is how Puss reacts when he's scared or surprised, he reacts just like a real cat, and his reactions just slay me, it's a small detail, but appreciated. There are some fun dance sequences, and Antonio Banderas has a lot of fun voicing Puss In Boots. I give it 3 stars, or a grade of B. I'd grade it higher if I wasn't weirded out by the sight of Humpty Dumpty looking like Steve-O from Jackass.
