Shrek 2 (2004)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family Film
The sequel to the 2001 Shrek movie and I personally think this is even better than the first 😛 ! The storyline is fresh, funny, entertaining for all and still keeps up the fairy tale theme. There are plenty of references to other films around the time which helps create humour (especially for the adults). My favourite is the reference to the “Lord of the Rings” at the beginning with the rings. I like the fairy tale world (with the classic princesses) and the introduction to the new characters; Fiona’s parents, Puss in Boots Prince Charming and Fairy Godmother 😀 . My favourite of the two are Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders) and Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) as they were hilarious and their motives in the film helps make this sequel unique. Puss in Boots is also amazing as he is a good addition to the Shrek/Donkey group. The narrative in this (without spoiling) is the most unique and the “I need a Hero” scene is one of the best 😛 . A really good sequel (might even be better than the first) and I truly recommend this film 😀 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
