SHREK FOREVER AFTER (2010)
What is the first reason that makes you go to see Shrek? For me, I expect cheerful atmosphere all over, that simple! In thiz fourth installment of Shrek, everything becomes darker and gloomier. I think the key factor that made Shrek franchise so successful all these times is Andrew Adamson. Adamson was the Director of two early ones “Shrek” (2001) and “Shrek 2” (2004). And he also contributed writing credit in “Shrek the Third” (2007). Thiz time to continue thiz three years occasion without his involvement, Shrek is just about get into the nightmare. The directing is handed to Mike Mitchell. Mitchell is previously known as the Director of “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo” (1999) and “Sky High” (2005) which are not animation features. The story tries to reset everything from the beginning. It tells Shrek (Mike Myers) travels to the past and faces the new alternate universe, where Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) is a warrior, Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) now is a fat lazy cat, and Donkey (Eddie Murphy) doesn’t even know Shrek at all. All happens because of a bad intention of a new villain named Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn) who has an ambition to rule Far Far Away Kingdom. Thiz character is not developed well. The only funny moment is only when he eventually changes his silly wig. It’s not comparable to Lord Farquaad’s character in the first “Shrek”. If we look back the Shrek series in overall, it has been already downhill since the second one. The first “Shrek” was amazingly fun, “Shrek 2” was still impressive and we had ever thought that “Shrek the Third” would be a real forever after. I describes thiz one as no need extension. However, Shrek movies always are filled with joyful Soundtracks. Unless they have a fresh idea, they can continue thiz franchise, but if they don’t, please just left thiz franchise behind for a little while. The thing is they don’t realize that they may kill thiz franchise forever after. One thing is for sure, thiz one really becomes a “Cat-tastrophe” and “ri-Donkey-lous” movie.
