A frustrated Shrek is banished to a perilous parallel universe after striking a raw deal with a new character, the villainous Rumpelstiltskin.
The film has already enjoyed a US premiere and online opinion is mostly muted, with one website lamenting that ‘the whole enterprise feels stale’, and Hollywood Reporter adding: ‘You know a film franchise is beginning to tire when its central character is in the throes of a mid-life crisis.’ Fans are hoping against hope that it’s going to be better than the last one. So are we, though the convoluted, hallucinogenic alternate-reality plot might be a hard sell.
