"After challenging an evil dragon, rescuing a beautiful princess and saving your in-laws' kingdom, what's an ogre to do? Well, if you're Shrek, you suddenly wind up a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph pitch forks. What's happened to this ogre's roar? Longing for the days when he felt like a "real ogre," Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never met. Now, it's up to Shrek to undo all he's done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one True Love." — Yahoo! movies
Shrek exchanged one day (the day when he wasn't even born) with Rumpelstiltskin to reminisce the feeling of being a feared ogre again and because of this, the events that were supposed to happen in Far Far Away never occured. Instead, Rumpel took over the kingdom; Donkey works for Rumpel and the witches, Fiona leads "The Resistance" — a group of Ogres fighting for freedom, and Puss became Fiona's pampered pet! LoL! Shrek then realizes his mistakes and musters all his willpower to fulfill Rumpel's "exit clause" which will revert everything back to the way things were supposed to be.
It is very rare for an animation film to have sequels and don't mess up. Neither Shrek : Forever After nor any of its predecessors are at par with any Pixar films I watched. Still, it did deliver so many funny moments that made me laugh so much!
Whenever Puss is around (especially when he's with Donkey), there will never be a dull moment! Rumpelstiltskin's voice actor is also very amazing! He is like the counterpart of Bolt's Rhino! Match it up with the animation itself — the 3D rendition they had for this film is much better than Shrek 3.
I watched Shrek Forever After in two occasions : 1) in Robinson's Galleria with Dada, and, 2) with my mom and my silblings in SM North as a part of my birthday celebration.
I give it :
