From Amazon.co.uk

Shrek Forever After delivers laughs, life lessons, and a striking picture of the realities of parenthood in this surprisingly good, fourth Shrek film. Like the original film, this fractured fairytale works because of the humour--it pokes fun at the whole fairytale genre on a multitude of intellectual levels while simultaneously offering visual humour that's appealing to all ages. After a frantic flip through a tongue-in-cheek fairytale book of the first three Shrek films, the scene opens on a beaming Shrek and Fiona as they awaken to a chorus of their noisy children standing at the foot of the bed, and it follows them through a typically hectic day of feeding, diapering, and caring for their children until they collapse into a satisfied heap at the end of the day. One of the funniest bits in the film, at least for adults, is how this scene repeats, faster and faster and in smaller and smaller excerpts, until Shrek's look of bliss slowly turns into a pained, midlife-crisis expression that screams "Help me, I'm trapped in this domestic purgatory and there's no escape in sight." As in any good fairytale, the protagonist's chance for escape comes in the form of a deal with the devil, in this case Rumpelstiltskin. Following in the footsteps of the classic film It's a Wonderful Life, Shrek is granted the opportunity to spend a day in an alternate reality in which he is the independent, terrifying ogre he once was. Of course, the deal carries some very serious, unintended consequences, and Shrek's day of freedom may just cost him Fiona, the children, and even his very existence. Mike Meyers and Cameron Diaz are once again stellar as the voices of Shrek and Fiona; Antonio Banderas is still all swagger despite Puss-in-Boots' now-portly figure and thoroughly domesticated ways; Eddie Murphy remains just as hilarious as in the first film as Donkey, who in this story doesn't recognize Shrek and can't fathom the possibility of a donkey and an ogre becoming friends; and Walt Dohrn is an extremely effective newcomer as the voice of Rumpelstiltskin. Other key players are the Pied Piper, with his new, tricked-out flute; a mob of broom-riding, jack-o'-lantern-throwing witches; an overgrown white goose; and a whole resistance movement of ogres under the command of a most unexpected leader. The battles are fierce and the lesson powerful: learn to appreciate what you've got. While 3-D digital is always nice, most viewers will completely forget that the film is in 3-D after the initial scene, and it will view just as well in the traditional format. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Fourth and final film in the phenomenally successful Dreamworks franchise. After all of his many and varied adventures, Shrek voiced by Mike Myers has finally settled down to become a domesticated family ogre. Yearning for the days when he felt like a real ogre, Shrek is duped into signing a pact with smooth-talking wheeler-dealer Rumpelstiltskin Walt Dohrn. He immediately finds himself plunged into a twisted alternate version of Far Far Away where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king, all his friends have completely different personalities, and Shrek and Fiona Cameron Diaz have never even met. It is now up to Shrek to save his friends, restore his world and reclaim his one True Love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Shrek devotees 3 July 2010
By OEJ TOP 100 REVIEWER TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
These are my thoughts on the cinematic release from Dreamworks, as although the DVD has just been released we won't be watching it until Christmas Day. It's a present for our children.

I chose old-fashioned 2D as I'm not a fan of 3D. In terms of technical standards of animation, little if anything broke new ground - it was good without being memorable.

It took a while to make me laugh though. It seemed a little dark and serious, and the overall mood it created wasn't as light-hearted as in earlier episodes. It wasn't just me - the cinema was full (the film was released the previous day) and for about fifteen minutes I realised that I hadn't heard anybody laugh at all, just a quiet chuckle here and there. Then Donkey appeared and after that it was frequently amusing, with he and Puss in Boots having the best lines. The story was good, with Shrek starting out as a popular family man (or should I say, ogre) but missing the good old days when he scared everybody and took his baths in mud pools. After a brief altercation with his wife Fiona, he meets up with Rumplestiltskin and enters into an appealing contract for one day which promises to offer him a brief return to those times he is pining for. It's a trick, however, and everything goes badly wrong, Shrek waking up in a kind of parallel universe where all of the familiar characters exist, but none of them know who he is - including Fiona, who now leads an underground resistance movement of ogres against Rumplestiltskin and his army of witches.

It's no classic, but it's still a welcome addition to the series. My seven-year-old daughter loved it, and can hardly wait to see it again (and again) on DVD - this review will be edited when I have seen what extras it offers but for the moment it remains sealed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great endding for a great serise 30 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is great it is the way Shrek was in the first two movies. A great blend of action, (cheeky) comedy, and excellent animation. This film has everything I as a fan cried out for after the third movie, which I found very disappointing. I love the grimming of the fairy tale characters, but they still seem to be fun, then you have the main villain how is just evil and you wanted to get his comeuppance.

The story. Shrek is not happy!!! The once feared ogre is not a respected/revered to celebrity proportions. He does not like it he think he is not only losing his identity, but everything that makes him an ogre. Enter Rumpelstiltskin the deal maker, with his own axe to grind since the first film. He offers Shrek a day for a day deal, Shrek get to be his old school ogre for a day, but must give up a day of Rumpelstiltskin's choosing. When this day is disastrous for the world Shrek must get his old gang back to together and once again save the kingdom of Far Far away, his family and himself.

As a fan of Shrek I enjoyed every bit of this film and was even the music. Lots of fight scenes to keep me interested, slapstick comedy, and a good story and ending to wrap everything up. If you like the first couple of Shrek films get this. It definitely makes up for the third film. Get it and enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shrek's come to a very bland end 14 Mar 2013
By AE Rowe
Format:DVD
I've got such fond memories of Shrek from watching it as a child which still hold true now. It's such a huge shame that they've made such a careless hash of it.
The first film was the best and the originality persisted into the second one, then by the third, it started to wear out but still had the quintessential elements of Shrek. So what's so bad about this one?
The cast, once so loveable and quirky have been turned into one compact family unit, so their personalities don't shine through and they've been given A-typical roles: Shrek the overshadowed father, Fiona the perfect mother and donkey,puss etc... the add ons.
The plot changes when shrek meets an annoying take on the character rumpelstiltskin and goes back for a day to be his previous ogre self. Aah such a blatant clawing back of the original. From here we experience a very stiff plotline where donkey is a witchs slave, puss is fat and Fiona doesn't love Shrek. It's an interesting change but simply doesn't work for the lack of a great script ,weak choice of music featuring beastie boys and Lionel Richie, and unsubtlety of jokes. Also, something to do with the voice direction in the first two made every line sound just right, now every word spoken sounds awkward and forced.
I'm sure kids will find something enjoyable about this film but for me it's a nail in the coffin of Shrek and after not being able to let go and wanting more films or even a series, I can finally say I'm over it. If the makers don't care then why should I?

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely good 3D 24 Jan 2012
By Athos
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is the only Shrek film that was made for 3D, and it shows, the detail and dimensionality of the characters is spectacular, one of the best titles out there.

The downside is that, unlike the other Shrek films, it's 2.35:1, this spoils the fun a little but it still looks great.

There's occasional moments of 3D, but mostly the depth is fantastic.

The only downside is the price, expensive!
