Aro Recommended Shrek


USA 2001, 133 minutes
Dir. Andrew Adamson, Vicky Jenson
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Family / Animation


Aroview: Flipping the rules of fairy-tales (and especially the Walt Disney incarnations) on their head, the ‘hero’ of this animation is in fact ‘the monster’, at last getting a sympathetic hearing.

As voiced by Mike Myers, this witty green ogre must suffer the paranoia of local villagers, before embarking on a princess-rescue with Donkey (Eddie Murphy) against the cunning Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). Benefiting from state-of-the-art CGI, which renders the tiniest facial expressions, this extends the current renaissance of kidult movies, with plenty of in-jokes at Uncle Walt's expense.
