One of the greatest treasures humanity has come across. Breathtaking imagery, intelligent dialogue and well-thought-out characters. A tale of bravery, betrayal, murder and redemption. Shrek as a character is directly influenced by Jesus Christ. He is willing to take all the weight on his shoulders to make save the world from trouble. Shrek 2 is a great movie for family and drinking buddies alike. The "Pixels" of my generation. Shrek 2 is a gift sent by god to reward us for keeping faith. Checkmate, Atheists.


Although largely a fun endeavor, "Shrek 2" is in full franchise mode, trading in some of the original's spark for a dose of cynicism. The story's a retread of the inner beauty theme from the first movie; one that grinds things down once Shrek becomes human, and picks right back up when Gingerbread Man shows up. The three leads are still harmonious, and the new characters are also enjoyable; but aside from one really good cat joke, it feels like a step down.6/10


Wonderfully funny and fun.Picking up where the first Shrek movie left off, Shrek and Fiona are now happily married and living in Shrek's house in the swamp. Donkey reappears, much to Shrek and Fiona's annoyance. The King and Queen of Far Far Away hear of their daughter's (Fiona) marriage and invite Shrek and Fiona to the palace to celebrate. When the King discover's that Shrek is an ogre he is immediately opposed to the marriage. Prince Charming, who is determined to marry Fiona, appears and he and the King band together to separate Shrek and Fiona and get Fiona to marry Prince Charming. The Fairy Godmother also appears, and she is not as benevolent as you think.Good fun, with some great jokes. Mixes medieval settings with modern in-jokes and parodies. Quite clever, some of the jokes - definitely not just a movie for kids. Rollicks along at a good pace. There are some silly sub-plots but these don't consume too much of the time and are glossed over through the frenetic pace.Great use of well-known characters from children's fables, eg Puss in Boots, Pinocchio, The Three Little Pigs.Superb animation, as you would expect from DreamWorks. Spot-on voice casting too. Pick of the bunch, for me, is Jennifer Saunders as the Fairy Godmother. She gets some of the best lines and her deliver is brilliant.There is a large amount of music in the movie, not to the extent that it is a musical (thankfully), but enough to make it more than just background. The songs are a bit hit-and-miss. Some (eg Eels' "I need some sleep") fit in well with the movie and help the tone, while others just feel like populist fluff. On the whole, the choice of music hinders more than helps the movie.Overall, an entertaining way to spend 1 1/2 hours or so.

To this day Shrek is an icon among animated film, and for good reason. If you want to say this film is one of the best comedies of all time then I'd say, you're right. This involves many clever jokes and puns dedicated to other animated films. I'm sure the people at DreamWorks were having a blast when coming up with many of the jokes. But this isn't a full blown comedy, it also mixes in some adventure, and a story about acceptance. Another character that really gained some popularity from this film is Puss in Boots. A Zorro type cat with boots and a sword, and a ferocious attitude. But his secret weapon is what people love the most. He's a bunch of smart character traits rolled into one. Antonio Banderas is the perfect casting for the character. This film offers many glorious things that make this a must see. Now to grade.
