The good points are very good indeed.
In summary the bad points were not as good as the good points.
Not recommended for colour blind people as this film contains vast quantities of green.
Shrek is a modern classic, it is a brilliant modern interpretation of shakespears original play, "west side story". For people who like green this film is truly excellent. This film is targeted at adults, children may not appreciate the complex ideas of logical positivism and empiricism suggested by the character of "The Ogre."
On a negative note some of the acting could have been better. I believe the film has been dubbed from the original spanish version and this means some of the lines are not in sync, it is almost as if the film has been animated! Also on occasions the continuity is suspect as you can if you look closely see that they have used a stunt donkey in certain scenes.
