In a movie all about coping with an inevitable death, Death being a literal character in the film is nothing short of brilliant. This whole film Puss has been running away from the concept of Death, only to discover that the enemy he's been getting stalked by is the literal embodiment of that horrifying concept.
With Puss's friends and enemies watching from the various points of the fabled Wishing Star, they witness a final showdown between our favorite fearless hero and the actual Grim Reaper, where the harbinger of Death gives Puss his sword back for a proper climactic battle. Death has enjoyed the chase thus far, but grown tired of the cheap novelty and is ready to make that final notch on his sickle and move on to the next arrogant feline. This time, however, Puss is ready to face the powerful enemy, now having true friends to protect and a last life he wishes to cherish. The final duel, like the rest of the movie, is riveting from start to finish. A fantastic finale where Puss is finally able to keep a cool head and Death even channels his inner Darth Maul and combines his scythes to form a cool as hell staff.
There is a bit of Inglourious Basterds in this movie. In The Dirty Dozen, Bronson stars as Joseph, a convicted killer who has been sentenced to death by hanging. Together with a few other convicts, he is offered a chance to become free if he volunteers to be part of a secret mission meant to derail the Nazis during World War II. 153554b96e
