“Beg for mercy from Puss….in Boots!”
Shrek is definitely one of the best family movies of all-time but can Shrek 2 out-do Shrek? Well, the story is a great story and it’s definitely on par with the first movie. The characters are yet again loveable as well as the added characters such as Puss In Boots and the evil Fairy Godmother. The cast are yet again perfect for their characters and makes the movie so much more funnier. The writing and the script is brilliant and the jokes and funny scenes are just as funny as the first movie. Shrek 2 may not be as good or as original as the first Shrek but with Shrek 2’s brilliant characters and hilarious jokes, it’s fantastic in its own right and is definitely up there with the first movie.
I loved the second Shrek just as much as the first one, maybe a bit more. I do honestly think that it’s a fantastic family movie and it’s guaranteed to make you laugh in all the right places. The voice acting really does add some brilliance to the movie. Antonio Banderas as Puss In Boots and Eddie Murphy as Donkey are both hilarious when they’re together and Jennifer Saunders as the Fairy Godmother was just fantastic. All in all, Shrek 2 is a total success. I think that it’s better than the first movie in my opinion, it’s funnier with some fantastic characters added with brilliant voice acting. This is a must for families and animated movie lovers!
Shrek triumphs again with his second movie. With some brilliant jokes and scenes and a great story, Shrek 2 is a great family movie!
