Shrek – I Can’t Believe It’s Really “Ogre”

Do you like Shrek? If you do, then you will be excited to know that the newest, and unfortunately last, film – “Shrek The Final Chapter” – will be released on Friday, May 21. With a very intriguing plot, viewers of all ages will be delighted. In addition to the interesting story line, the new characters and awesome graphics make this a must-see movie. As the story unfolds, you come to realize what the land of Far, Far Away might be like if Shrek had never existed. Without Shrek, many things would be different – Donkey would be a slave, Puss would be obese, and Fiona would be involved with an ogre uprising. The main reason for all of this is the very short and very evil Rumpelstiltskin. Rumpelstiltskin just wants power, and he will do anything to get what he wants. If you want to know how Shrek gets out of this predicament, you will just have to watch the movie to find out. The graphics in this movie are really cool too. The characters and scenery had much more detail and color than previous Shrek films, and you could read the facial expressions and body language better. Another interesting thing about the graphics was that when I watched the first Shrek movie again, I could totally tell the difference in quality of the films.I also was lucky enough to see “Shrek The Final Chapter” in 3-D. Although seeing it in 3-D isn’t as important as it is with some movies (like “Avatar” or “Coraline”), the 3-D environment in this movie made me feel like I was actually there.A fellow viewer, Dominic (9 years old), said, “I think the movie was awesome!” It’s too bad that this will be the last Shrek movie. Fortunately, Dreamworks has lots of other promising films (such as a “Puss in Boots” prequel) in development. I’ll be looking forward to seeing those!
