Introduction

Media Coursework Write film reviews of "Shrek 2" for two different Audiences. Adult Audience It's rare for a sequel to top its predecessor, especially if the original is so successful, but "Shrek 2", in everyway possible, has broken that never broken theory. Shrek, the sweet, lovable, green coloured ogre, who first appeared in "Shrek" early 2001, brought forward a new leash in animation technology.

Conclusion

Similarly with every other part of this breathtaking animation hit, the soundtrack that accompanies the careful creation and editing of the film has been made sure by filmmakers, to produce the best result possible.

All throughout this non-stop adventure, soundtracks from the 70's, 80's and 90's are heard, making sure every aspect is at its full. Classics from Bonnie Tyler, The Buzzocks and Eels are all included, pushing this fairytale beyond any in history. ...read more.
