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.

It's hard to buy into the movie making fun of anything when it's become such an easy target for mockery itself.

What's lacking is that intangible sense of fun, of inventiveness, of ingenuity, that made the first Shrek something you ran to your friends, grabbed them by the arms and told them they simply HAD to see.

Antonio should use his Puss n' Boots voice in the Zorro sequel.

It makes the mistake of thinking slapstick action is funny for its own sake. True, characters zooming and bouncing around are easy to write because no creative invention is required to set them in motion. But so what?

Four words say all that needs to be said about Shrek the Third: more of the same. The problem is, what seems fresh and pleasing the first time through starts to feel a little stale by the time we've gone through it three times.

Green isn't just the color of ogres. It also represents the cold hard cash studio execs can again expect to reap, no matter how often they repeat the same basic joke.

Blinded by avarice and all out of ideas, once again, Hollywood can't tell when enough is way more than enough.

I doubt even rabid fans of the first two will consider Shrek the Third a worthy addition to the franchise.

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.

The energy level flags a bit as the green swamp creature copes with greater responsibilities and impending fatherhood.

It's just that when you're offered two delicious treats in a row, and then the third one feels rushed, bland and undercooked, it's tough not to feel a bit disappointed.

Much of the bite and a good deal of the wit of the first two films are missing here.

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

This is the most visually impressive Shrek yet. It's also the least inspired.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, and Antonio Banderas are three of the all-time best matches of actors to animated characters. So it's a shame the writers weren't inspired to give them funnier stuff to do.

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.

Boring and sluggish even with Shrek often naked.

The film's humor is all in the business and nowhere in the lame story's two subplots, neither of which is strong enough to sustain a real movie.
