In the Pixar era, we have gotten spoiled with what they can do with animated films (Toy Story, Finding Nemo, etc). That may be why there was so much venom directed at the latest and final Shrek film. While it does not hold a candle to those and other Pixar classics, Shrek is still an entertaining and sweet ride. This one focuses more on the characters we've grown to love (or hate, depending on your perspective) and gets back to the basics that made the original so good (I was not a real fan of the last two). Less is more, and unlike something like Despicable Me, Shrek coasts on the vocal talents of everyone involved. Much like the superhero genre, there are levels of good. This may not hit The Dark Knight level but it certainly isn't Ghost Rider. Shrek is more like X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Far from a masterpiece but still fun.
