Shrek the Third

Rated 3.0

Chapter three in the green ogre chronicles is an OK movie. That’s not high praise, but seeing something that passes for a good movie comes as great relief after a lousy start to the summer movie season. It might not be better than its predecessors, but it’s worlds better than other recent animated offerings, like Meet the Robinsons or Arthur and the Invisibles. It looks great, has a sweet message and enough laughs to make it worthy of the series. Shrek (Mike Myers) goes on a search for King Arthur (Justin Timberlake), with sidekicks Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas). That’s pretty much it. There are some decent laughs, and the animation is stellar. It gets passing marks but is definitely the weakest chapter in the series.
