It's far too open in its desires (MAKING MONEY) to be hate-worthy.
September 1, 2007
The humour seems to be aimed more at adults, which is good news for those being dragged along by their children, and even though it's disappointing, there's still plenty to smile at.

The film has little new to offer and the trailers show most of the funny moments.
July 23, 2007
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.

It might be best to let the big guy live happily ever after.
July 7, 2007
On this evidence, thrice is definitely enough.
July 3, 2007
Like an overstuffed Happy Meal with a deliberately deceiving nutritional guide.

There can't be another episode in the pipeline unless it is decided to erase the memory of this one which simply doesn't achieve what the first two films managed: to appeal to kids and parents as well.
June 29, 2007
From beginning to end, it's very, very funny. Watch it. It's great.
June 29, 2007
It would be a good idea for those involved to quit while they're still (just about) winning.
June 29, 2007
Unfortunately, a few flashes of brilliance don't stop this being a disappointing follow-up to the brilliant first two films. don't let that stop you from taking your kids to see it so they can make up their own minds.

Under-10s will probably enjoy it while adults will feel they've seen it all before. Which isn't quite the fairytale ending we'd all hoped for.
June 29, 2007
There's no doubt Shrek The Third will make potloads of money. Pity it shortchanges the audience with an underwhelming plot and characters you sense are just going through the motions. When it's good it's great. Overall, though, the magic is lacking.
June 29, 2007
In the end, Shrek the Third, like so many Hollywood animation movies today, neither trusts itself nor cares to create any new magic. If it were a child in a classroom, it would be the back-row smart arse, rather than the poetic dreamer.
June 29, 2007
Shrek the Third isn't awful, but it's bland, with a barrel-scraping averageness.
June 29, 2007
Children may devour the slapstick, but the once-mighty Shrek has somehow lost all his charm and spiky humour.
June 29, 2007
"Ogre and out" say the critics, but the Shrek series still has laughs and legs.
June 29, 2007
A shame it lacks the smart sassiness of its predecessors. Time to call time, we think.
June 29, 2007
Computer-generated animated movies with wall-to-wall jokes can be excruciating, but these jokes are the funniest money can buy.
