Shrek the Third DVD Review

Shrek the Third DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on May 14, 2007
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Shrek is back for another adventure and this time he's facing his toughest opponents yet - his own triplets! Here's the review of Shrek the Third.

Shrek is back for yet another adventure in Shrek the Third. Can it hold its own against past Shrek movies or is it past its prime? Here's the DVD review!

Dare to Heir

When the King of Far, Far Away is on his death bed, he asks Shrek to succeed him as king, but Shrek really doesn't want the job. The only other person who is heir to the throne is cousin Arthur, which means Shrek must go on a long journey to track down the AWOL heir. His trip takes a dramatic turn though, just as Shrek sails away from the port, Fiona shouts to tell him some important news - she's pregnant!

Just Say Nay

Shrek is seriously sweating becoming a father, but he doesn't have a lot of time to stress - he's got a king to find! Shrek, Puss in Boots and Donkey are surprised when their directions lead them to a high school that the king-in-waiting attends. They're even more surprised to find that Arthur (Justin Timberlake) is no Prince Charming; he's more of a Prince Nerdy. He also isn't too keen to be king.

Baby Makes Five?

Back in Far, Far Away, Fiona and her fairytale friends - Rapunzel, Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty - are preparing for the new baby. But they're in trouble when a hoard of villains (led by Prince Charming himself) attacks the castle. Soon Prince Charming assumes the throne and the girls will have to kick butt to get the kingdom back in order. But can they do it? And will Shrek live to see the baby he's so afraid of having?

DVD Features

This DVD is loaded with bonus features, games and more! Check out Shrek's Guide to Parenthood, learn to do the Donkey Dance, and get Shrek and Donkey's environmentally friendly tips on how to be green! You'll also get to meet the cast of Shrek the Third and hear what Arthur's classmates have to say about him!

The Bottom Line

Shrek the Third is visually stunning and is a real improvement over the past two installments in terms of animation and rendering. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the story. Shrek the Third is a mediocre (medi-ogre?) film at best, and at worst is a cynical attempt to wring every last cent out of fans of the two previous films. If you're a tried-and-true Shrek fan, you'll probably want to catch this latest installment, but if you're a fan of laughs, give it a pass.

Shrek the Third Rating: 3

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
