Shrek

Shrek is a modern classic, it is a brilliant modern...”

Good Points
The good points are very good indeed.

Bad Points
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.

General Comments
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.

A very interesting review, I too noticed scenes that didn't seem 100% real, I also thought the voice pretending to be eddie murphy was a poor impersonation and reminded me more of that bloke who played Beverley Hills Cop.

I agree. Shrek is a modern day classic. I was a bit sceptical at first, but I really enjoyed this movie. They shouldn't have made a sequel though; that's just cashing in and being greedy. I won't be watching Shrek 2, or any other "planned" sequels.

Well done Superbean, 10/10 for literary knowledge. Unfortunately though, 0/10 for playing spot the joke.

I don't see how this is a 'Brilliant modern interpretation of Shakespears original play "West Side Story"' considering that he did not write West Side Story. He DID, however, write Romeo and Juliet, which West Side Story is BASED on.
