The lack of masterpieces of this creation is quite easily predictable. It is enough to analyze the information provided by the all-knowing Kinopoisk. Chris Miller distinguished himself only by directing the third Shrek, in which, by the way, the marasmus had already strengthened enough for the cartoon to lose a significant part of its fans. Another list of his merits can be attributed to the creation of additional dialogues to the first Shrek. The word ‘extra’ in itself is alarming, because this category can include both effervescent jokes, and simply and oohs and sighs (the latter is most likely). This is, perhaps, all that Miller can attribute to himself before he was entrusted with ‘The Cat in Boots’. The writers, except for the great storyteller Charles Perrault, also can not boast a great and colorful track record. And so, this brave team, taking something from Perrault (which is now, like a propeller, spinning), created a new animated 3D money squeezer and showed it to the world. I’d like to say right off the bat what’s plastered on the posters so large that everyone from age 3 to 90 who has eyes can read it: In 3D. Fellow viewers, don’t waste your blood money on something that doesn’t exist. If you want to see good 3D, and not just read the convex letters Dream works and naively smile when some slivers fly in your face in a couple of places, then your hand shouldn’t even flinch at the box office to pay extra for a 3D screening. Where did the $130 million go? Apparently, it went to the star voice actors.
To continue the story of what’s missing. There’s no high-quality humor. Cooler than a bearded-at-the-heels joke like ‘You hit me in the head with a guitar! – I’m sorry…the guitar” you won’t hear anything. Only children or people at a certain stage of intoxication might laugh ten times while watching Puss in Boots and his girlfriend earn a hernia by flipping Humpty Dumpty. On the background of the humor, aimed at children of maximum ten years of age, or at adults who have fallen into childhood, the plot, worn out by the scant imagination of the writers, unfolded thin. Here, everything follows a pattern: a vivid tale of childhood, betrayal, terrible revenge. I don’t know how you can not guess the actions of each character individually during the movie and about twenty minutes before the beginning, you can not accurately predict the ending?
It’s a cartoon for kids, but it’s not that simple. Many of the moments never rose above the level of the cat’s belt and sword and got lost somewhere just between the tall cat’s boots (apparently, this is what this creation is supposed to be akin to the latter parts of Shrek). This part of the cartoon is just for an adult audience, which should be hooting and hooting with delight at the soundtrack of sexual exploits of the Cat in Boots, and to understand where the expression “golden balls” refers not to the goose, and to the anatomy of a bearded man in tattoos.
Where is the originality? Where’s the killer humor and the jokes that would later break down into aphorisms and that you wouldn’t have to plug up your children’s ears when you voice them? Where is the interesting plot? Where’s the acclaimed 3D? There isn’t a damn thing. There’s just another daylight robbery on a planetary scale at the movie theater box office. Take your kids to this educational cartoon, so they finally find out why you cat walk around so horny in March and where the goose chick’s eggs pop out with the frequency of the Kalashnikov.
Even the touching image of the little kitten without boots, not yet corrupted by all the deadly sins, does not suppress the desire to wish this cartoon a resounding failure, which would have bounced back on its creators and would have made them think twice next time before dumping the slag accumulated in their heads onto the screens.
