    Shrek Forever After

    ★★½

    The last attempt to squeeze out any juice that the franchise had left after the failed effort in the third installment. Shrek Forever After doesn’t deliver anything new and most of the characters lacked that same spark that was offered in the first two films. The cleverness and ingenuity is long lost and there wasn’t anything the writers could do to repeat the formula’s success. There is just so much you can do when it comes to bringing back these…
