Shrek the Third


Shrek the Third
The King is dying and anoints his son-in-law, Shrek, to succeed him. Shrek, however, has no desire for the job, and sets off in search of the only other possible candidate, Arthur. He eventually finds a kid called Artie and convinces him to take the job. Meanwhile, wicked Prince Charming has put together a bunch of baddies to storm the castle and take over the kingdom. With Shrek captured and unable to help, it's up to Fiona and her gal friends to save the day.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconLovable Shrek is King when it comes to the cash, but his is far far away from his crowning moment.
10
Die Burger
Jacques Liebenberg quote iconVerbasend vermaaklik.

Cape Times

iAfrica.com
Nils van der Linden quote iconAlthough still entertaining and impeccably presented, the playful ingenuity of the first instalments has been replaced by a sense of malaise and predictability.

Mail & Guardian
Shaun de Waal

The Citizen
Peter Feldman quote iconShrek has certainly come a long way since his solitary days in the swamp — and it's been a fun, undemanding journey.
16
Sunday Times
Barry Ronge quote iconIt's not dreadful or dull but feels contrived and somewhat unoriginal.
5
24.com
Alistair Fairweather quote iconIf the visuals are the best thing about a Shrek film, then something is very wrong.
10
Box Office
Chad Greene quote icon'Ogre' the hill: It's the croaking Frog King Harold who unwittingly provides the metaphor for the state of this fairytale franchise...
8
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconShrek 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.
13
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconFour words say all that needs to be said about Shrek the Third: more of the same.
13
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThere's no disguising the fact that Shrek the Third has come down with a bad case of sequelitis.
10
ScreenIt
quote iconWhile undeniably the most technologically impressive entry of the bunch, the film suffers in the area that's most important, the script.
