    “Sequels are notoriously difficult beasties, a bit like...”

    Written on: 11/01/2010 by zagureanu (27 reviews written)

    Sequels are notoriously difficult beasties, a bit like ogres really. Often vehicles to make yet more cash for studios by simply churning out the same initial formula, most are destined to disappoint. I caught the original movie mid-Atlantic whilst en-route to Florida so the chance to see this version on the big screen was a real draw, together with the top quality of the original global phenomenon of Shrek. And so it was that I bundled the family off to see Shrek2 on preview weekend in the… Read Full Review

    “This story is about Ogre, Shrek. He is ugly but he's...”

    Written on: 02/12/2008

    This story is about Ogre, Shrek. He is ugly but he's also good and funny. He is strong and helpful. He lives in swamp. He eat rats. He's brave but he's different from other people. When Lord Farquaad, the ruler of Duloc, exiles all the fairy-tale beings to the woods, Shrek loses his peaceful life and his home becomes a refugee camp. So he sets out to find Lord Farquaad and convince him to take the fairy-tale beings back where they belong, and leave him alone. Lord Farquaad accepts, under one… Read Full Review

    “Shrek Review. ”

    Written on: 14/10/2007 by LYXO (1 review written)

    Shrek Review.

    From the creators of 'Madagascar', DreamWorks pictures present 'Shrek'. Ogres and princesses may not seem your sort of film but with the famous Mike Myers, as Shrek and the hilarious Eddie Murphy as Donkey this film will have your sides splitting. Although it's an animation, Shrek also has romantic side to it; full of spells and curses you may even feel sorry for the disgusting ogre.

    Based on a little known novel by William Steig, Shrek is an animated adventure but still has a… Read Full Review

    Written on: 01/12/2006 by Speaker Dime (6 reviews written)

    Shrek is a fantastic modern adaptation of the Princess and the Frog story. Animated by the wonderful people at Dreamworks, the interaction of Mike Myers (Shrek) from Austin Powers fame and Eddie Murphy (Donkey) is unmissable. The easy-to-swallow musical numbers, action sequences and heart-wrenching moments are combined with fantastic comedy throughout from the best of the best Hollywood comedians. The star-studded cast includes Cameron Diaz who plays princess Fiona and John Lithgow who is… Read Full Review

    “Shrek took three years and two hundred and seventy...”

    Written on: 13/05/2005 by samskate1 (1 review written)

    Shrek took three years and two hundred and seventy five animators to make and believe me when I say it was well worth the wait, so this is my review on the spectacular film we call Shrek.

    Shrek is a spectacular animated movie a must see. Beneath the skin of the apparently vicious ogre is a sad story to tell. A story of true love between an ogre and a princess with one hidden extra.

    Shrek is an ogre that is played by the unmistakable (Mike Myers) he lives in a swamp surrounded by a weird… Read Full Review

    “Shrek sets off to poor start with a few farting jokes...”

    Written on: 13/05/2005 by ddaavvee (1 review written)

    Shrek sets off to poor start with a few farting jokes followed by the well known song All Star. But swiftly moves into an enjoyable family film and by its end we have been enchanted by a fairy tale world of green ogres, fierce dragons, talking donkeys and yes, a beautiful princess who is waiting to be rescued by her true love. But it's no sugar-coated fairytale. And lots of sarcasm for all the teenagers out there.

    Though Shrek is an animation, it is not just for the younger generation, most… Read Full Review

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

    Written on: 30/01/2004 by Chrismoylesstoleourmaterial (4 reviews written)

    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… Read Full Review

    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.

    Written on: 18/10/2002 by Huxley. (1 review written)

    Shrek (Played my Mike Myers) is an ogre who is required to go on a errand for Lord Farquad to get his swamp back. Shrek makes friends with a little 'Talking' Donkey (Played by Eddie Murphy). The chemistry between these two characters and Princess Fiona (Played by Cameron Diaz) is what makes the film. Shrek is fun family film. Although a lot of the jokes will be wasted on the children. So if you want a film to relax and have a good laugh to then there is no better… Read Full Review

    Written on: 05/06/2002 by kay. (1 review written)

    This essay shall discuss how Shrek balances, but at the same time breaks the rules of a fairytale. The film was released early in 2001 and proved to be a big hit here and in the US. Shrek is a film for all the family. It includes humour with a little help from a donkey. Donkey cracks jokes about the size of Lord Farquaad and just makes funny remarks in general. Although it is still based on a typical fairytale it does not always follow the typical plot. A hansom prince rescues the princess and… Read Full Review

    Kay......you put a lot of work into that review and had I read it before seeing the film, I'd have been tempted to save the rental fee! You summed it up beautifully - well done.

    Written on: 31/01/2002 by pauldavey. (1 review written)

    You already know Shrek is a good film, so here's something others may not have told you. Suitable for any age above about 5 (we have reservations for our three year old - scary dragon scene, scene set in a dungeon, detached eyeball in close up and gruesome threats etc - she'll love it when she's a little older). Plenty of trumping jokes so may not suit prim relatives - but good fun for children and any other adults. Get the Region 1 DVD if you can - lots more extras - but don't play with them… Read Full Review

    Written on: 30/01/2002 by Genny. (1 review written)

    When all the fairytale characters are driven out of fairyland, they converge on the home of the ogre Shrek, who just can't cope with so many visitors. He goes to the king to sort it out and ends up on a mission to rescue a beautiful princess. Too much more detail would spoil the film if you haven't already seen it, but suffice it to say that there's a twist in the tale and a happy ending. Eddie Murphy as the donkey is great casting. Shrek's accent leaves a bit to be desired, but otherwise… Read Full Review

    It is the best film ever. I know all the words of it off by heart. I'm a very good impression of donkey, i've done a play and i got a very high score. I love shrek it's funny, true and sad because people should be proud of who you are.

    Written on: 14/12/2001 by Richard. (1 review written)

    Shrek (Mike Myers) is an ogre-but an ogre with a difference-witty, charming and misunderstood by the 'humans' who live nearby. When his swamp home is threatened, he rises to the challenge to find the local wannabe king, Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow), a bride in return for his beloved swamp home. Aided and abetted by a magical flying donkey (Eddie Murphy), the film is full of hilarious moments with enough to keep us Big Kids smiling too… Read Full Review
