Although many individuals have been astounded at the fact that this ogre keeps having repeated appearances in the movie theaters, the popularity of Shrek Forever After does make it worth checking out. A standalone film in its right, this movie starts off with this ogre finding that he’s had enough of family life and living. He starts longing for the freedom and adventure of being a single young man -or ogre- and just generally is experiencing that longing for his previous life. After a disastrous party, he gets what he wishes for through a deal with Rumpelstiltskin. But of course, even if you are an ogre it is important to be careful what you’re wishing for and even more wary of those granting wishes. If Shrek cannot win Fiona’s heart before the day ends, then he will not exist any longer.
-Positives And Negatives
The positives are basically around the nature of friendship, family, love, and contentment. Through his experiences here, this popular ogre can appreciate the fact that although nothing is perfect, there is value in the things he has. It is fascinating to see his struggle to regain the trust of his friends and also to see what Shrek’s world is like without him in it. Of course with Rumpelstiltskin in charge, it is not smooth sailing. With Fiona and the gang trying to mount a resistance to fight for their freedom and time running out regarding Shrek’s survival, the message is loud and clear.
However, it should be noted that although not prevalent, there are some elements that more conservative individuals may have a problem with such as the presence of magic and witches.
-Development As A Character
As is par for the course with these movies, the ogre once again takes away some valuable lessons in life. In some of the past movies he learned to let himself love another person, he learns about interacting well with others, and in this movie, he learns about appreciating the people he has in his life.
Viewers are also able to observe the whole ‘what would life be like without him’ concept when seeing Fiona and what she’s doing without her husband in her life. Characters like Puss in Boots and Donkey are very much the same but in a slightly different context. The two would be better off living in different homes like my friend Home Loans Wenatchee
Shrek Forever After is pleasantly surprising to those who thought this franchise needed to end. The plot is engaging and quite amusing when you look into Rumpelstiltskin and his pursuit of revenge. It speaks in large part to that common desire many have to pursue the things they didn’t get to take part of in the past or even just to rediscover the lifestyle they used to have. This movie shows the viewers and that ogre that there is often a lot of overlooked value to be seen in the things that are seen everyday. For those interested in a family-oriented movie, you can’t go wrong with this one.
