I enjoyed this third enstallment of the Shrek series of movies, in part and to a point. I did have some laugh out loud moments, however the use of pop culture music was to the point of nauseating. The part where Snow White was singing and then there was Led Zeppelin? What were the filmmakers thinking? It absolutely grated on my nerves!
Worth watching just for the amazing animation. Excellent plot and punch lines for what is essentially a kids movie... still plenty to keep the adults happy as well.
From big kids to little, its a gem.
Average. I like the 2nd one the most
Excellant children,s Movie.
I loved all of the Shrek movies and this one has the best computer graphics so far.
Great to watch it again in the lead up to seeing Shrek 4 - still get some laughs and notice a few things i missed last time. Kids love it over and over.
If they do Shrek 100 I will still be watching
As good as the others need to be watched twice at least
funny as expected when eddie murphy is in it, I like him for his funnies, he always makes me laugh, overall the movie was good, easy to follow, funny, keeps you wanting more.
interesting storyline great animation as funny as the first two just a more adult oriented storyline
A good addition to the franchise. Just as good as the others.
Kids and l loved it great family movie : ]
No better or worse than the others and really more of the same.
If you have seen the other Shek this is alon the same lines. Good easy watching perhaps on the wekend
Good but doesn't seem to have the "heart" like the 1st one...
Still enjoyable and funny...
Unlike other sequels, this movie actually surpasses the earlier films. It is not a matter of better animation, but the lot and character seem less forced, more human. It is as if using cartoon characters let us feel the humanity of the characters, and not be put of by them being human. Shrek 2 seemed like a parody, but 3 is a cinema classic.
shrek the third still as good and very entertained as the previous one. The most funny things is watching little ougres they are so cute.....!!!
Not bad for the 3rd in this series. The third crack is usually the downfall (eg. diehard 3, beverly hills cop 3) but this one had plenty of the wit of the first two. I definately rate this movie.
even better than the other 2
Lacked a lot of the charisma and ironic wit of the first two, and what plot there was was clearly dreamed up in some writers' sweat shop for churning out sequels they know everyone will see regardless of quality. None the less, the animation is stunningly good and there are (just) enough entertaining bits to make this worth a look.
Another really good movie - pitched on two levels - kids and adults. Really hard not to enjoy, light hearted and lots of fun. Makes a refreshing change from all the violent films out there.
Typical sequel, tried too hard and just didn't get there.
Stick with the first one!!
Really funny, as good as the other two. Watched it a few times. Had us all laughing.
As good as the first 2 movies but they could of had more of the babies. Hoping for a 4th movie to see more about them.
I have heard that Shrek the Third isn't as good as the first two Shrek movies. One thing I have noticed about Shrek, is that you can not compare either of the three movies against each other. They each have their own story without leaning on previous instalments.
It was a good movie to sit with the kids to watch. A funny movie.
Great for the little kids and the big kids at heart. It is just as good as Shrek and Shrek 2.
Our whole family loved it. Highly recommended.
Not funny - boring. Should have stopped at Shrek 2.
A terrific addition to the Shrek series. Very funny stuff for adults & kids alike.
A real hoot with laughs for all members of the family. Watched it several times and the extras were hilarious.
Much the same as the 1st two. My 4 year old daughter loved it anyway.
No humour in this Shrek but a lot of songs which enriched the plot. Enjoyed it but hope they do not make another.
I love all the Shrek movies, but I think the first one was the best. Anyway, great entertainment, great ending, lots of laughs!
Couldn't even hold the attention of my 3 year old who is a big fan of the green guy
It's not great for any adults watching - unlike the other films, but my kiddies loved it. Definitely still worth getting it for any kid under 10 years old
Was in tears and almost wetting myself in enjoyment watchin at the movies!
Great pre-quel! Lots of adult jokes; that go straight over kids heads!
Always good for a laugh and some easy entertainment. Predictable and quite similar to the other two, but I still really enjoyed it and got some belly laughs.
my whole family are big shrek fans i think i like the others better but it was still really good
The boys loved this - lots of laughing from the lounge room, kept them glued to the screen the whole time ( thank you I got the house work finished)
I loved it, thought it was so funny and enjoyable!
Another good Shrek movie. Keep them coming!
Definetely not as good as the first two. Not as many one liners and sneaky jokes for adults. After watching the trailer i thought the focus was going to be on Shrek and Fiona's babies but they hardly feature at all. My 2year old whol loves the first two movies didn't enjoy it at all.
Ok - a good giggle but not as good as the 1st and second, a bit generic.
A good family movie but the story-line is starting to wear thin. Still fun to watch.
There's room for at least one or two more, please
I loved this.......sometimes you feel a little let down with sequels but these movies just improve more and more each time.....As always, funny, clever and very entertaining. Recommend for all ages!!
Nowhere near as good as the other two. Was very dissapointed.
There's nothing to add as all members have covered it well.
Even better than Shrek part 1 and part two
Funny and perfect for all ages. Don't miss it!
Not as good as the original but ok.
good fun, but preferred 1 & 2
Kids loved it. I didn't think it was as good as the two previous ones, but the kids thought it was great.
a great movie loved by the whole family was a great laugh
The kids loved it as they did the other Shrek movies
I loved it as much as my kids. As good as the first two. Hoping for a forth, with the babies.
What can you say about the sheer brilliance of so much talent coming together... in 1 big crescendo of experience: sight, sound and entertainment! I did read some reviews where viewers were dissapointed. This is not surprising, because previous Shrek movies already set such high standards of excellence. People were going to expect a lot from the sequels. Being in the graphic design/ computer imaging biz myself I guess i doubly appreciate what talent goes into bringing this movie alive. I wouldn't know where to begin, myself! I am in AWE of so much amalgamated brilliance!!
Animation was great, story was pleasant, but not quite up to previous. Puss in Boots is great value though.
Delightful story but not as good a telling as previous releases. The good V evil theme lacked some quality in the special effects
Loved it. Much fun - great for kids and quite a few adult jokes in there too!
Good fun, Adult humour whilst kids will enjoy as well
They killed the franchise with this one. Unfunny, lamed and hopeless. They should change the "HI" in the last word of the title to a "U", as it would be more appropriate.
nowhere as good as the previous 2 but not bad.
shrek sequels are well done, not repeditive like some. it was enjoyable
A most amusing film and I would highly recomend it.
Very funny! A great cast with a great story. You can't help but love them, especially Shrek, Fiona and Puss in Boots.
Not nearly as bad as I'd been led to believe by all and sundry... in a word... enjoyable
Fantastic, I'm a real fan of Shrek, all of them have been equally good. One of the best animated movies ever! Genius storyline, characters, action, clever facial expressions, etc. etc... I could watch them all over & over again, great music too.
Realy quite funny enjoyed by children and adults alike
Ah! Who doesn't love Shrek? Enjoyed every minute of this colourful, humorous, witty movie. Love all the characters, and the baby(s) absolutely gorgeous, who would believe Shrek is a nasty, fearsome Ogre???? No way.
A great movie for the kids as well as adults
Not bad. Pretty funny and lots of new characters. not as good as the first
Thoroughly enjoyed the third instalment of the Shrek movies.
Hilariously funny. Great kids movie and adults will enjoy it as well. Love the actors involved.
THoroughly enjoyed the movie. Laughed continually. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed this movie - it's much better than No. 2 which I didn't really enjoy. Lots of jokes for the adults but still enough for the kids.
Great laugh-a-minute film! It hasn't lost any of that humour since the first movie.
shrek is cool ,not as good as the first but better than the second movie .
Good funny film all round, just as good as the first 2.
not as good as the others but still a good watch
I was pleasantly surprised, this was great fun. In my opinion, far superior to the second Shrek installment - and I actually think I enjoyed it more than the first one! Obviously a light-hearted fun movie, perfect for a relaxed Sunday night.
This movie is equally fantastic as the original one. The characters are so great that kept us laughing all the time. I love the moral of the story and the new babies of Shrek and Fiona.
what a wonderful movie for the whole family. we all loved it!
An ideal children's film with a lot of one liners and a great music score. I enjoyed it a lot as an adult and recommend it to anyone with a inner child inside.
Not as good as the others but still pretty good. I enjoyed it
still good fun but it's lost some of the sparkle of the previous movies.
Not a patch on the others but still a quality flick
Still not as good as the 1st one
high paying script but too much going on, may need more a simplistic outlook to target its audience...some degrading language, too off-putting for the commoner.
My daughter loved this one. In fact my daughter watched about a dozen times. Light and fun.
Cute movie for kids and adults, but not as good as the first or second Shrek movies
A good, fun movie with comedy aimed at both kids and adults.
My 6 year old enjoyed it until there was a "scarey bit" which has given him nightmares.
Not as good as the first one but I still got a good laugh from it. Very subtle adult jokes throughout .
I can see why the adults might get a little restless, but it's a Shrek movie! and the kids will enjoy it all the same.
disappointing... 1st one was AMAZING, number two was avarage, number 3 was bad :(
More for the kids.
Not enough comedy for adults.
excellent. The script was (as usual) full of wonderful quips that keep the adults oming back for more as well as entertaining the kids. The images were so clear...well worth watching. The extra features were as good as the main feature.
the whole family thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It caters for young and old with its storyline, humor and comic timing. Loved it!
Very funny, as good as the last two, great as a family movie and the kids young & old would love it.
Wonderful movie, I think its the best Shrek. I think my son would watch it more than Cars. Its on our must buy list now.
Some really funny bits but not as funny as the first two movies.
It's business as usual in Shrekland. Nothing new here, just running over the same old ground.
Oh well, the franchise chugs along with minimal disruption.
Not as good as one and two!! Funny in parts!!
It's a Shrek movie. What more do you need to know.
this is the third installment to the lovable and hilarious shrek story, and as its predicesors, it did not disapoint. My children loved it, I laughed at the humour that sometimes sailed right over their heads. Very enjoyable, worth the sixteen odd times my daughter played it. Absolutly great.
This movie was good. But like all sequels, it wasn't anywhere near as goood as the first ones
GREAT FOR YOUNG & OLD ON A WET GLOOMY DAY
I had read that this was a pretty weak effort but I found it easy to watch with some good gags, but I agree with most critics in that the franchise is looking a bit tired. What else does Mike Myers do these days??
I had really high hopes for this movie but it was a huge let down, it never really got started and it seemed to just drift along without any real purpose at all until all of a sudden it was over. The magic of the 1st 2 films is missing here and that is a real shame.
must see dvd my kids loved it go out and buy it
Not nearly as good as 1 & 2 but the characters are still funny. We need a completely different story line for number 4, please!
While not as good as the first two, this was still a very entertaining movie.
Excellent. Just as good as the first 2.
Unfortunately the writers were resting on the success of the previous Shrek films. Dissapointing storyline, bad casting of JT as Arthur, unimaginative and uninspiring. Ogre offspring playtime was the only entertaining moment of the production.
The kids loved it, like they do anything from dreamworks
Worth watching for Puss alone but not up to the standard of the first two. You'll get a few chuckles and there are certainly worse ways to pass 2 hours but it's not a 'must see'.
Not in the same league as the first two. The plot is slow, the jokes are weak and infrequent and I nearly fell asleep. I actually found the extras more entertaining.
Not as good as the last 2 Shrek. But still it's entertainning. Probably people start to get tiresome after 3 Shrek.
But it's Shrek and Dongkey what's not to love!!!
Again like all sequels this is just not up to the standards of the first two very good movies. Watch if you like Shrek but nothing really new here.
This one is not even funny.
