Shrek Forever After

After challenging an evil dragon, rescuing a beautiful princess and saving your in-laws’ kingdom, what’s an ogre to do? Well, if you’re Shrek (Mike Myers), you suddenly wind up a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he did in his youth, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph pitch forks. Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn) and suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) have never met. Now, it’s up to Shrek to undo all he’s done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one true love.

This is the fourth and final chapter of DreamWorks' Shrek franchise.

The reputed swan song for the series and its first entry in 3D, pic contains a respectable number of laughs, but also borrows its storyline from the oft-recycled "It's a Wonderful Life," and if that's all its creators can do, it's best to put Far Far Away far far away.

After the creative lacklustre Shrek The Third, you'd think there was little left to do with the jolly green ogre.

This fourth ogre outing delivers plenty of 3D razzle dazzle and has fun messing about with its alternate-reality storyline, but it never troubles the modernclassic status achieved by the first Shrek. Still, a chunky step up from Shrek The Third.

What fortifies Shrek Forever After are its brilliantly realized principal characters, who nearly a decade after the first “Shrek” film remain as vital and engaging fusions of image, personality and voice as any characters in the history of animation.

Fourth Shrek flick improves on previous outing to deliver a smart, funny finale.

Whatever else gets tossed into the mix, Shrek must be the heart and soul. In this, Myers is a master; he makes it seem easy being green.

DreamWorks could be entering a period of fresh creativity. With How To Train Your Dragon and a balanced, darker-hued and very funny Shrek finale, they’ve found the magic again.

It's hard to believe this is the final instalment in the hugely lucrative Shrek quadrilogy - even though a Puss in Boots spin-off is already in the works, this is ostensibly Shrek's last outing.

Hated it not even worth going to see it at the movies in 3D. Waste of money

Hard to say. Funny, in parts. A kind of obvious storyline, though. I enjoyed it, as it's Shrek. It was definitely better than the last two, which storylines I don't even remember. :D

It's funny, I'll give it that. But not much else.
