I saw Shrek III this weekend and unless I'm missing something this franchise is on its way out. A few things to be up front:
- I LOVED Shrek
- I DIG Mike Myers
Unfortunately it appears that he's running out of steam on this storyline. There are moments of it that are very enjoyable but overall it isn't very exciting anymore.
One thing however that continues to be as breathtaking as Mini-Me is the advancement in animation. The CGI in this movie is out of this world. It had my mouth agape on several occasions. Unfortunately I wasn't very entertained otherwise.
I met with a guy from Pixar once who told me that the greatest animation in the world can't make a bad story good, this is an example of that.
