Shrek was a decent film.
Shrek 2 was a pretty good film.
Shrek The Third was a pretty poor film.
And Shrek Forever After, the final film (at least for now), was merely okay-ish. Story wise, the film is entirely redundant, adding practically nothing to the series’ overall narrative. In the film, we find Shrek fed up with family life. Consequently he ends up in an alternate time line where he has no family, only to re-learn the true value of family and of course finding his way back to his original time line in time for cake. They all lived happily ever after.
The highlight of the fourth film was definitely the character Puss, who unfortunately had very few scenes. Fortunately we got an entire film dedicated to Puss just last year, in the surprisingly entertaining film Puss In Boots.
Puss is voiced by Antonio Banderas, who is actually a pretty good singer; he even had a major role in the theatrical version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Evita. He has also provided the Shrek films with a few singing performances, like singing the classic Bob Marley song “One Love” in the fourth installment. Which is this week’s featured song.
