An agreeable time-passer, nothing more.

[An] incredibly boring movie with unpleasant characters and a tired, played out story.

The first two movies had heart, charm, wit, originality, parfait and, most unusually for an animation, characters you could properly care about. This, though, has very little of any of the above, and it breaks my heart.

Computer-animated ugliness

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

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.

Princess power saves the day for ogre and pals.
