Really? Shrek as a king? Dumbest idea I've ever heard. Alot of lame jokes, boring plot, and horrible acting. Just watch the other 3. I was going to give this a 1/10, but I'll give this another star for animationScore: 2/10


This film is undoubtedly the least impressive of the Shrek franchise. It commits a sin that even the trashiest pieces of garbage shouldn't ever commit: its very boring. The film lacks heart, wit, originality, ingenuity, inventiveness, intelligence and basically anthing else you might expect in, oh say, a film. Shrek has overstayed his welcome and the plot is very disengaging. There's almost no point prasing the animation because its something that should be a given for Hollywood animation. In this, Shrek is reduced to a one dimensional character and donkey inevitably becomes annoying and pointless. This film should not have been made. But it was, which takes both guts and sheer idiocy


Shrek The Third (2007)Plot In A Paragraph: When the King dies, Shrek goes on a quest to find a new king. Whilst he is gone, the jilted Prince Charming takes over Far, Far AwayWOW. This was awful. None of the brilliance of the first movie, none of the charm of the second, and certainly none of the laughs. The funniest character in both of the precious movies was Eddie Murphy's Donkey, and he is pushed onto the background here, along with Antonio Banderas' Puss In Boots. I did make it to the end, unlike my girlfriends daughter. Shrek The Third grossed $322 at the domestic box office, to end the year the 2nd highest grossing movie of 2007.

Shrek the Third (2007): Dir: Chris Miller, Raman Hui / Voices: Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, Antonio Banderas, Justin Timberlake: Disappointing third film in the Shrek franchise. The theme is empowerment as ogre Shrek learns that he is next in line as King. When he learns of Fiona's cousin Arthur he sets out to bring him back in hopes that he will take responsibility as King and leave him to his comfortable ogre lifestyle. Structure is routine and similar to the first film. Mike Myers voices Shrek who learns of Fiona's pregnancy and stressed with the thought of fatherhood. He is the only character with any broad development as he attempts to ditch his responsibility yet accept another. Eddie Murphy voices Donkey and Antonio Banderas voices Puss N' Boots but both are more or less along for the ride as mere road movie props. Even Princess Fiona, voiced by Cameron Diaz seems to merely exist after informing Shrek of his future role as father. This is all done in glorious computer animation that is colourful and bright but without a decent screenplay it comes off as a great painting. Justin Timberlake voices Arthur, Fiona's cousin and second heir to the throne, and the role is a steal. Directed by Chris Miller and Raman Hui whose combined talent cannot bring life into this third and forgettable entry in a franchise that has just hit its last chapters. Score: 4 ½ / 10
