Shrek the Third

(USA, 2007, 94 minutes)

After the King dies leaving him the throne of Far, Far Away, Shrek goes out in search of Fiona’s half-brother whom he’s sure will make a better king, but leaves the kingdom vulnerable to a villain rebellion led by Prince Charming. Enjoyable but unnecessary sequel to the adventures of the animated green ogre that charmed the world in 2001; a handful of good gags and lively characterisations are lost in rather conventional plotting that all but throws away the original gleeful send-up of fairytales.
