What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Lovable Shrek is King when it comes to the cash, but his is far far away from his crowning moment.
Jacques Liebenberg Verbasend vermaaklik.
Nils van der Linden Although still entertaining and impeccably presented, the playful ingenuity of the first instalments has been replaced by a sense of malaise and predictability.

Peter Feldman Shrek has certainly come a long way since his solitary days in the swamp — and it's been a fun, undemanding journey.
Barry Ronge It's not dreadful or dull but feels contrived and somewhat unoriginal.
Alistair Fairweather If the visuals are the best thing about a Shrek film, then something is very wrong.
Chad Greene 'Ogre' the hill: It's the croaking Frog King Harold who unwittingly provides the metaphor for the state of this fairytale franchise...
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Shrek the Third is a damped-down return to the Kingdom of Far Far Away, lacking the comic energy of the first brilliant film and not measuring up to the second.
James Berardinelli Four words say all that needs to be said about Shrek the Third: more of the same.
Peter Travers There's no disguising the fact that Shrek the Third has come down with a bad case of sequelitis.
While undeniably the most technologically impressive entry of the bunch, the film suffers in the area that's most important, the script.
Tomatometer Lacks the heart, charm, and wit of the first two Shreks.
What the People say
12306 Netizens This film seems to rely more on the slapstick humor to cover up the weak plot.
