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.

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.

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!

After the monstrosity that was Shrek the Turd, the Dreamworks team behind the Shrek franchise woke up and realised what made the series so popular in the first place. Shrek Forever After is not a particularly great film, but it finds some firm footings to appease the adults and children alike.

Thematically it's as safe as houses, it pitches Shrek into a "It's a Wonderful Life" scenario, where the big green ogre gets to spend a day away from the life he didn't realise he was happy with in the first place. Making a deal with the nefarious Rumpelstiltskin, Shrek finds a world of darkness for ogres, a world ruled by a psychotic who has an army of flying Margaret Hamilton's to do his bidding. Worse than that, Fiona doesn't know him, she's the leader of the resistance and has no time for some big green ogre love. Donkey is all mangy and Puss in Boots literally has become a fat cat, it's a horrible life, man!

The action and graphics whizz past the eyes in what is a perfectly pitched time frame of 90 minutes. It never reaches the heights of the first two movies, but it doesn't strain for laughs or narrative cheek (Pied Piper as a bounty hunter? Genius), or more crucially, it's never dull, something part 3 can't safely claim to not be. It bows out with head held high, not so much in a blaze of glory, but with a dignified recognition of the fact it's time to retire to the swamp and chill out. Take it easy Shrek and the gang. 7/10

Took my daughter to see this in the cinema where we both really enjoyed it. Glad that I ordered this from Amazon a couple of days ago when it was only £9.99 - bargain!
