A breakthrough in the collection of various fairy tales in the early 2000s made it "Shrek". Remember the small kid on VHS watched it several times. Bright, funny, big and green.

History at the opening was interesting, new characters, new challenges, and most importantly — a reinvention of "Sleeping beauty". The cartoon pokes fun at all the familiar story, adding in more humor and tolerance. Animation catches the eye now, the main characters are too dedicated, and the background is blurred in the defocus. But it doesn't matter to you, when charismatic heroes with good dubbing on Russian language open in front of you.

"Shrek" gave a lot of emotions, a lot of nostalgic feelings. It is time, the franchise started to slide: the short film, spin-offs ("puss in boots") is not cause of the effect, which is inherent in the first film. This story of a lonely Ogre (for publicity, so it milash), who lives on a swamp. Cartoon the first episodes are amusing, sometimes toilet humor, but it's fun. Fabulous world inhabited by various creatures. Here you can meet the characters of many fairy tales. Of course, about Shrek no one heard, so it stands out from the rest. Yes, he is the main character, but we are about nothing heard, hence the curious.

Ruled all this fairy-tale Kingdom of Lord Shorty. Therefore, to achieve your goals, it through blackmail hires Shrek. Though for the kids, but in the cartoon raises many important issues: social inequality, the falsity of the authorities and the injustice of the state system. But bright and fun begins dealing with fairy tales. The adventures of Shrek, the and fun, that he's a loner, and immediately partner different creatures, gets stuck on feet. How does this giant, to feel better themselves.

Love and barrier. When have enjoyed the jokes, used to images of the main characters, comes a great romance, and the message shows that looks — not important. Intimacy and secrecy allowed the viewer into the whirlpool of incredible events. The tale within the tale. The curse of an evil witch, and an unexpected result.

For the entire trip Shrek is changing, becoming more responsible and attentive. It partner — Ass — forever talking animal that served as the root of many funny episodes and the sleeping beauty. On the background of what is happening in the cartoon is rich with remarkable soundtrack, adrenaline and the romance. A good family film, which is not tired to revise never.

The funniest trideshnoe the movie I looked! Very good, positive, and bright. In this multi very harmoniously all the criteria necessary for success. It's such an integral as humor, action, and adorable heroes in the face of Shrek, Fiona and Donkey inimitable! All the characters are awesome, and no one that would fell in the soul. Not matter what the main character is not very similar to the Prince, he immediately makes us to sympathize.

About the actors who voiced this "creation" is also necessary to put in a word. Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, well, and of course Eddie Murphy is just hot! If you look at the  native cartoon language, believe me, you don't soskuchilas. This should be heard.

Throughout the cartoon we can enjoy the awesome music, which is awesome for them. So we do not see only well thought out characters, but and perfectly matched the scenery that will amaze with its prorisovannost that so not tend to 3D. I think this cartoon is not can not like it will the taste is not sure, it and skeptical adults.

From my point of view, the Shrek — this is a first class, quality, fun, beautiful cartoon for adults! Probably children it is also interesting, according to that a they can watch, but for me — is primarily a cartoon, which is interesting for its text (especially in the original) for an adult audience! Sparkling humor, great music, a beautiful picture -what else need to be happy? Below is happiness ended possible! And the authors of Shrek perfectly coped with this task!

Shrek — is one unique experiences, when the continuation is not just not worse than the first part, and not possible to understand what part better? At all part are different, as the story, and style, why see more interesting. I think Shrek — is as the cartoon, which will undoubtedly in the history of animation and stand in a row with such classics as Aladdin, the little Mermaid, the lion King etc.

In addition I can say that Comedy — one of the best roles Banderas. Of course if you look in the original.
