The third chapter in the green-ogre chronicles is an OK movie. Thats not high praise, but seeing something that passes for a good movie comes as a great relief after a lousy start to the summer movie season. It might not be better than its predecessors, but its worlds better than other recent animated offerings like Meet the Robinsons
and Arthur and the Invisibles
. It looks great and it 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). Thats pretty much it. There are some decent laughs, and the animation is stellar. It gets passing marks, but it is definitely the weakest chapter in the series.

The latest 'Shrek' disappoints a bit by exchanging storytelling for humor
