Shrek Forever After (2010)

like the first three Shrek movies, #4 is full of sight gags and clever in jokes about tons of movies and fairy tales. and like the last three, it's not as fun as the first one, but it's still pretty good.

at least worth the 90 minute running time!

the plot is Shrek having a mid-life crisis, and not thinking things through when he signs a contract with con artist Rumpelstiltskin to have one day as a scary ogre again.

it's pretty predictable, but seeing an army of ogres as the good guys is pretty cool.

on a viewing level, at least the camera movement has slowed down a bit, not twisting and turning and shaking at every possible moment so you can't tell what is going on.  it's pretty well shot.

I liked the movie and I liked the series, though it's probably a good thing this is the last installment in this series.  guess they could go and have the kids grow up...
