The giant green ogre is back for his final farewell movie, in this fantasy fairytale as we see all the usual characters (and some new ones) back in the animated adventure. The summer truly kicks off with this fun family film which will be loved by young and old alike.
Shrek really needs no introduction, and now spends his time as a father to his 3 ogre children and husband to Princess Fiona. Life has become hectic for Shrek as he feels he has lost his identity as a mean green ogre.
His frustration escalates at one of his child’s birthday party, as friends, family and the occasion get too much for him and angrily walks out of the party. Confronted by Fiona, in anger tells her that he wishes he had never rescued her.
He leaves the party and on his way home he encounters the devious Rumpelstiltskin. Rumpelstiltskin asks for a day from Shrek’s past and in return will grant him a day where Shrek can be like his old self, feared by everyone. Hesitantly, he agrees, and is whisked off to a dark and desolate world where he is feared by the people.

However, a few things have changed, like Rumpelstiltskin is the new king, Fiona is nowhere to be seen, his home is no longer his home, witches scour the land in search of ogres to imprison and learns that the day Rumpelstiltskin took off him was the day he was born. So incidentally, he never met Fiona and never rescued her, who now finds Fiona leading a revolution against the regime of Rumpelstiltskin, but she has never met Shrek so he cannot return to his former life without receiving “true loves first kiss”.
Shrek must now win over his love once again, as we follow him on his mini adventure to find true love before his own time runs out.
Can Shrek accept being the new family ogre? Or will he resort to being the new mean green ogre like his old self? Watch it and find out as the younger audience will love it for the fun aspect while the older audience will love it for the 3D aspect. As I’ve said before, 3D works best in animated films, as I’ve yet to see a really good live action movie in 3D.
If you can recommend any really good 3D movies, then be sure to let me know.
