Shrek the Third Reviews

Tony Delgado
Digital Spy

With a plot lacking no urgency, Shrek 3 is a well-animated film containing a few standout, but ultimately throwaway sequences that don't do enough to sustain our interest.

From its humble, elegant origins as a slim children's book by William Steig, Shrek has metastasized into a symptom of and metaphor for the entertainment industry and modern culture in general.

Shrek the Third has the curse of the third in a bankable series. It is too often sappy, tiresome, and overblown. A franchise such as Shrek, with all the money it has accumulated, should be able to buy a little freshness and originality. But instead

Apart from some modestly amusing princess shtick and a pleasantly slapsticky opening, there's no real reason for anyone over the age of 11 to see this one.

The best thing it has going for it is its look, which is stunning.

San Francisco Examiner

Though the devious wit of the original remains, it is obscured by too many classic-rock interludes (courtesy of Led Zeppelin, Heart and Paul McCartney) and nudging pop-culture references that seem by now just part of the formula.

This is a very skillfully made corporate product, but I wonder who, exactly, will be fully satisfied.

The Scorecard Review

The problem with this film is that after a quick, fun beginning they repeat a similar journey from the first film. Except this time, Shrek and Artie argue instead of Shrek and Fiona.

Your kids may enjoy it, but you would do better to wait for the video.

Feels refreshed and might be -- especially for relieved parents -- the most entertaining film of the franchise.

While there are times of moderate amusement, Shrek the Third offers few surprises. It seems as though perhaps the creators have found their stride and are calling it in more than going out on a limb.

Shrek the Third, which vigilantly flirts with the grey matter between child's play and adult humor, creates curious questions for children while bringing back beloved characters for another joyride in Far Far Away.

It's far too open in its desires (MAKING MONEY) to be hate-worthy.

The film has little new to offer and the trailers show most of the funny moments.

Any film with the wherewithal to cast Ian McShane as Captain Hook has more going for it than flatulence.

This third outing sadly lacks in ambition and, at times, even offers the whiff of sitcom plotting and plodding.
