Mark Steyn The Spectator
June 09, 2015 Even more amazing, for a movie with its share of flatulence gags, it also has a real heart. Few films have had their cake and eaten it so gleefully.Read in Source

November 25, 2013 What the film lacks is the faintest glimmer of charm.Read in Source
Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal
November 25, 2013 The charms of Shrek, which is based on the children's book by William Steig, go far beyond in-jokes for adults.Read in Source
Christy Lemire Associated Press
November 25, 2013 After a 90-minute onslaught of in-jokes, here's the real punch line: Shrek strives to have a heart. Supposedly there's a message about beauty coming from within, but somehow it rings hollow.Read in Source
Alexander Walker London Evening Standard

Anthony Quinn Independent (UK)
June 09, 2015 With improbable finesse it buffs up some of the oldest tropes of storytelling and then gives them a mischievous tilt, so that we appear to be watching a celebration of a genre and a sneaky subversion of it at the same time.Read in Source
