This movie is simply a beautiful and underestimated masterpiece.
How it deals with a sudden change in the life of Shrek by intoxicating it with sudden silliness, and later making him realize how bad his anger affected his decisions, feels just so harsh and dramatic.
I love how the movie starts with the tone of Shrek 3, showing how annoying that movie was, and just a simple cash-grabbing trash that made the entire Shrek franchise go down the hole, and then fixing that by sacrificing the pop culture references and a bit of the fun tone, making the movie dark compared to the rest of the frachise.
and even with the darker tone, the movie is fun, dramatic, has an amazing story, changes the caracters completly, introduce new wonderful charecters and villain, and more.
trully amazing work, and i don't really understand how people hate this movie so much.
