Movie Details


In this fourth instalment of the popular ogre film franchise, Shrek (Mike Myers) has become a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, the now-reluctant ogre agrees to autograph pitch forks. Longing for the days when he felt like a "real ogre," Shrek is tricked into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin (Paul McCartney). Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumplestiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) have never met. Now, it`s up to Shrek to undo all of Rumpelstiltskin`s mischief in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one true love and family.

Watch this if you liked: "Shrek"

Shrek returns again! Many of the fans would be thrilled to catch this as "Shrek Forever After" is said to be the closure for this popular franchise. As the story goes, Shrek (Mike Myers) is now a happily married ogre with three children. Alas, he longs for the old life right before he met Fiona (Cameron Diaz), where the villagers are terrified of him. He then makes a swift deal with Rumplestiltskin (Walt Dohrn) to return to the past for a day, without knowing that Rumplestiltskin has something hiding in his sleeves.

The previous "Shrek" films were no doubt entertaining to audiences, but in "Shrek Forever After", it fails to entertain this writer. The plot was very shallow and sadly, it dragged on for too long as there wasn't any substance to amuse viewers. Moreover, the jokes in the film occasionally failed to live up to its comedic expectations.

The casts need no further introduction naturally as Fiona, Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss (Antonio Banderas) are undeniably entertaining, but the writer somehow feels that Shrek is always the same old character in all three movies. The highlight would be the new character Rumplestiltskin, voiced by Walt Dohrn, who is more known for his creative work in "Spongebob Squarepants" and "Dexter's Laboratory".

This reviewer recommends that audiences watch it in digital 3D as if it's said to be the very last "Shrek" film, then it'll be worth every penny!
