Plot: A bored and domesticated Shrek pacts with deal-maker Rumpelstiltskin to get back to feeling like a real ogre again, but when he's duped and sent to a twisted version of Far Far Away -- where Rumpelstiltskin is king, ogres are hunted, and he and Fiona have never met -- he sets out to restore his world and reclaim his true love. Runtime: 93 mins Release Date: 20 May 2010
Best Shrek. It is a special movie, one of the best movies of all-time. It is a masterpiece on par with the mona lisa. What is so masterful about Shrek is its ambiguity. We never are certain if Shrek really did believe in the values that he professed. At the same time that he sets himself up as above the world, he longs for the affection of the common people. This is symbolized by his exploitative, and patronizing love for a chorus girl, Fiona. Her character is given a paper-thin characterization, the closest thing to a flaw in a perfect movie. Despite the film's pessimistic outlook, it is <more>
studded by moments of joy, beauty and emotional truth. The supporting cast of characters, most of them regulars from Wells' Mercury Theater are also superb. So many scenes in this movie linger forever in the memory, one is left with a stirring vision of the frailty of the human condition, the film gives us no easy answers and while being fiercely critical of many of it's characters is universal in it's compassion and sympathy, this is perhaps the most vital ingredient for great art. It's influence, was immediate, incalculable and mostly unacknowledged, the film was a box office and critical failure due to Hearst's efforts and it was not until years later that this film got the respect it deserved. Nowadays there is not one living film director of serious artistic intent that has not been deeply influenced by Shrek 4ever after. It's not just a masterpiece it's a creative touchstone.
Entertaining and a great closure to the series (by wolfcub7)
That is me hoping there won'r be more Shreks. Because this part's story and morals truly made a perfect closure from where and how it all begun in the original "Shrek". Also, I think this part gave a whole new depth and meaning for the theme song "It Is You I Have Loved All Along".I don't think a 3D version has anything to offer, you might as well watch this in 2D. But I think the whole 3D thing is pointless anyway. Movies ARE meant to be watched and not "lived". That's why they are movies and not real life experiences. That's why we <more>
don't NEED them at our face. Anyway... This is totally worth the price of the movie theater ticket, if you can look at the film from a little bit new perspective.I understand why some might think this not as good and magical as some of the earlier parts as this does lack action and fairytale feel, relatively seeing to them, but I don't think this needed any of it, to be as great as they. Because I see this as a closure, which needed to focus on the morals rather than magic and fairytale elements. And the moral of this part, in my opinion, is the deepest and most important of them all. Count your blessings before they're all gone and don't throw them away for something you already chose to give up, because what past choices seem insignificant for the moment, may have make all the difference in the world. This is combined to the lesson of how you should always read any contract before signing it. "You took the day I was born!" "Correction: You GAVE it to me. Since you were never born, you have no wife and no kids. And when this day ends, your life will end." No Shrek movie has ever taken its morals to this utter level and meaning. I find it completely fascinating and extremely well portrayed in the story.I didn't find the humor remarkably childish or in any way changed seeing to the earlier parts. At least, not during most of the movie.Also, I don't care if the entertainment relied much on the beloved characters, because the characters were put in completely different situations than they had ever been in, which caused them to have developed some new feelings and characteristics. Especially Fiona, and Puss.And one of the new characters I find relatively outstanding. Rumplestiltskin. All the other versions I have known, portray him as a rather helpless dwarf, who only pops up here and there and demand a mother to give him her baby, while he perhaps cracks some supposed-to-be-good jokes. But here, they portrayed him as a clever, cunning, bitter, angry fellow with a new obsession and turned him into downright a little sh*t. And the way they had drawn/animated him reflected every bit of that. I think he's a wonderful character in this film.Perhaps there is less for kids to enjoy than in the earlier parts, but can you even say that any of the Shrek movies have been targeted essentially to kids anyway? I never thought they were.This fourth Shrek is officially one of the most inspiring movies I've seen for quite a while and does stand strong ground next to earlier parts of the series. Warmly recommendable to a Shrek fan, and to anyone who's out for good entertainment.
The best of the Shrek sequels. (by rockinkettles-1)
Everyone has different taste when it comes to movies, but myself being a fan of Shrek since the first one, I think the newest chapter is the best sequel of all. I honestly did not think very much of it at first when I saw the previews and other reviews. I always like when a movie turns out better than you expected. The newest chapter finds Shrek getting bored with his married life, so he turns to Rumplestilsken to give him what he wants. One day to be the ogre he used to be when people were afraid of him. One day of not knowing the life he does in the present like being married and feeling <more>
smothered by everyone around him. But the evil Rumple has Shrek sign a contract with a trick clause that will change Shrek's life for the worse. In his new life no one knows who he is.Not Fiona, donkey or even puss in boots. The only way to break the curse is to make Fiona fall in love with him again and make everything go back to the way it was.The final Shrek has moments of action and humor like the first three movies, but I think the story is the best of the sequels. It of course makes you realize in life to love what you have. You may not always be happy with the way things are but at least you have friends and family around you who love you for who you are. You don't have to be a kid to enjoy it. I think adults will like it as well. And as far as the summer season goes with it's new batch of movies, you can't go wrong with Shrek. It is definitely a good start.
A return to form to end the franchise (by markz-8)
Shrek Forever After and yes, that's the official title as seen in the first real shot of the film is a welcome return to form after the disappointment of Shrek The Third, which LOOKED beautiful but hit all the wrong notes. This one has recaptured the fun of the franchise while potentially being the darkest one in terms of plot. Alternate universe stories have been done to death, but the appealing nature of so many of the characters makes this one work, as well as the fact that the filmmakers are clearly trying to wrap up the story which includes a small bit of retconning at the <more>
beginning, but it pays off toward the end . The 3D occasionally falls into the trap of throwing things towards the audience, but the characters and sets are so beautifully animated in all dimensions the textures of Shrek and Donkey, particularly, have improved even on the wonder that was Kung Fu Panda that the 3D actually adds to the enjoyment. The first two remain the crown jewels of the franchise, but this is a worthy addition and a suitable end to the... well, saga is too strong a word, so storyline will have to do. And the bonus? Eddie Murphy gets to sing SEVERAL songs WITHIN the movie!
this movie is so far far away from being as bad as the third (by micahbosarge)
i saw shrek forever after at a private screening in my hometown and i was so happy to see some of that more mature humor that is in the first 2 movies, shrek the third was your normal bull,boring,kid flick.the 3d was amazing the story was OK but a lot of TV shows and other movies have use the make a wish and regret it later plot.for people who are mike myers fans you will love this movie he has a very good talent for voice over work you can tell he enjoys it now for Cameron diaz i don't know in the first shrek she played her part wonderfully in this one it seems she rushes her lines and <more>
she fakes her emotions i know she is a acter and that's her job but she is much more believable in the first shrek.now what can i say about Eddie Murphy he is the best person,actor,comedian,to play the role as donkey, donkey's character is fast talking, cocky, witty, funny, and at times serious just like Eddie Murphy .and last but not least puss in boots played by Antonio banderas in my opinion puss stills some of the spotlight from donkey witch is perfect because they incorporate that into the movie with donkey and puss always arguing and competing for attention from shrek.in short if you are into fairy tales, love stories,adventure,and having a good time than i would recommend go see this movie whether in 2d or 3d this is a wonderful movie.
James Stewart's '' It's a wonderful life'' meets Shrek (by veronicammartin)
I went to see this film last night FRIDAY 9th July 2010 and laughed out loud for the first time in heaven knows how long.I thought the animation and personification of the characters, facial expressions were far better than any film made recently .Walt Dohrn, as Rumplestilskin had a suitably peevish and vindictive expression to his voice. While all the other usual cast were well on form.There was as always a moral to the story and Shrek's philosophical reflection to Fiona at the end cleverly turns the tables on our previous ideas of the film .This is far better than Shrek 3, a laugh out <more>
loud film that does n't fail to deliver a feel-good response . It 's a James Stewart 'It's a wonderful life' meets Shrek. Loved it .
It's not really cool to like Dreamworks Animation anymore. Sure, they're not Pixar. Sure, they're too hung up on star power and pop culture references. But I've still enjoyed the majority their films more than I have a lot of what's out there. And I love the first two "Shrek" movies. Their funny, entertaining, terrifically animated, and, too me, some of the best animated love stories that have been made. Most fairy tale romances perpetuate the idea that love is for beautiful people even the masterpiece "Beauty and the Beast" has it's cake and eats <more>
it too on this point , and Princes and Princesses are better than common people. "Shrek"'s idea of finding happiness in who you are was much more palatable to me. i found the first film a delight, and the second even better.But the third was only okay. The humor wasn't nearly as clever or funny, and the heart just wasn't there like it used to be. "Shrek Forever After" isn't as good as those first two. But it's a big step back in the right direction.The story begins with Shrek getting used to being a father. He loves Fiona and the kids, but he misses his old life as a menacing ogre. He's seen more as a lovable tourist attraction now, and he doesn't like it. So, he makes a deal with the mysterious Rumpletiltskin surprisingly NOT voiced by a name actor to get one day back in his old life. In exchange, he gives up one day from his past. A day from his childhood that he doesn't even remember.Unfortuntaely, that day turns out to be the day he was born, and this leads to an "It's a Wonderful Life" scenario where Shrek doesn't know Fiona, Donkey, Puss-in-Boots, or any of his friends, and Rumplestiltskin rules the Kingdom with a tiny iron fist. The resulting story is a great deal of fun, with Fiona now a warrior leading an ogre rebellion, the Gingerbread Man fighting as a gladiator against Animal Crackers, and so forth. The humor isn't back to it's highest heights, but there are a good number of genuine laughs. And the heart is back bigtime. I found "Shrek Forever After" surprisingly touching..Okay, it's not as good as "Toy Story 3" is likely to be, nor is it as good as "How to train your Dragon". but I had a blast with "Shrek Forver After" and can't wait to take my niece and nephew
On the day that Shrek rescued the cursed Princess Fiona from the tower where she was kept prisoner of the dragon, her parents King Harold and the Queen were ready to sign a contract with the cunning Rumpelstiltskin delivering the kingdom Far Far Away to him. On the present days, Shrek feels bored with Fiona, his family and friends and near a breakdown, and he misses the years when he was a terrifying ogre. Rumpelstiltskin overhears a discussion between Shrek and Fiona and meets Shrek, offering a deal to make he feels a frightening ogre again. In return, Shrek should deliver one day of his <more>
childhood to Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek is lured and Far Far Away is distorted under the reign of the tricky Rumpelstiltskin. Now Shrek misses his family and friends and has to win Fiona's heart again to save Far Far Away, his friends and himself. I have just watched "Shrek Forever After" and my expectations were very low, based on the IMDb user's rating and a couple of reviews that I had glanced. However I liked this underrated animation a lot, which has a good story with many hilarious moments. Once again, Donkey "steals the movie" and this character has been for years the best role of the wasted Eddy Murphy. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Shrek para Sempre" "Shrek Forever After"
I'm writing this review because the preview on television only shows the funny parts. I took my 4 year old daughter to this movie thinking it was going to be a humorous, silly movie. It was great for about 10 minutes until the plot changed to a dark scary movie. I don't want to give away too much but the violence and weapons have a very real, non-cartoonish quality to them. There is a point where Shrek gets captured and what happens to him is so horrible my daughter turns to me with tears rolling down her cheeks and asks "Daddy, is Shrek going to be okay?". My heart sank. I <more>
regret taking her to it. It continued with the violence until the last 5 minutes of the movie. I wish they would have shown some of the violence on the previews because I wouldn't have spent $30 just to scare the crap out of my daughter and make her cry. I wouldn't recommend this movie for children under 6. The high quality of the animation adds to the scariness.
