Shrek could have easily gone into Seinfeld Is Unfunny
territory after all these years. what wirth the countless rip offs, and sequels. but The first film manages to be clever and funny. why? beyond the fairy tale stuff, it has a very good story with likable, funny characters. Especially shrek, who you feel bad for the whole time. donkey also shows how to do an Annoying" side.
Add a really
good moral to that, and you have a solid film. Shrek 2, is one of my favorite animated films of all time. the jokes come a mile a minute, and are all funny. the characters are better, and the story is very clever and has a lot of heart. shrek/fiona is great and it has one hell of a climax. an Even Better Sequel
if i ever saw one
Shrek 3...is So Okay Its Average
. it's not as bad as everyone says it is, but it's weak. it has some really good, and clever ideas, and shrek goes through the right emotional journey. however, a lot the story is a cluttered mess, with some cliche parts and the jokes are very few and far between. also, the king gets a really
bad death scene that felt like a kick in the nuts to a great character. not a bad movie, jsut not a great one.
Shrek 4, is much better. the story is interesting, it's funny, the characters go through the right changes, and it's paced very well with a good villain and some great action. it's also tear-jerking at times and gives us a good tribute to the first two films. not as good as 2, but on par with 1
Watch shrek 1, 2, and 4, and skip 3. It's a series that is still solid, despite it being a cash cow.
