Critic Reviews of "Shrek"Paul Malcolm L.A. WeeklyJune 09, 2015
Murphy steals every scene he's in with equal parts bounce and warmth.Anthony Lane New YorkerNovember 25, 2013
What the film lacks is the faintest glimmer of charm.Jami Bernard New York Daily NewsNovember 25, 2013
The brilliance of the voice work, script, direction and animation all serve to make Shrek an adorable, infectious work of true sophistication.Nathan Rabin AV ClubNovember 25, 2013
Shrek's ability to fit in a number of touching, funny moments says much about the intelligence and wit behind it. It's just a shame that the film is never as clever or as hip as it so desperately feels the need to be.Christy Lemire Associated PressNovember 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.Joe Morgenstern Wall Street JournalNovember 25, 2013
The charms of Shrek, which is based on the children's book by William Steig, go far beyond in-jokes for adults.Andrew O'Hagan Daily Telegraph (UK)June 09, 2015
Here is a movie of the times, funny, enjoyable, perfect-looking, and altogether original in a way that might cause us to look again at the meaning of the word.Christopher Tookey Daily Mail (UK)June 09, 2015
Adults will find plenty to laugh at. Children will love it.Alexander Walker London Evening StandardJune 09, 2015
Shrek is alive, and with dark, sly and absolutely hilarious irreverence lampooning every once-sacred characteristic of the nursery kingdom. Shrek is a subversive joy..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.Mark Steyn The SpectatorJune 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.
