    I got this through yesterday (R2) despiting reading bad reviews of the R1 version (original Shrek movie in 4:3, 3D effect rubbish and only lasts 15 minutes).

    Well I was pleasantly surprised - The R2 comes with the 16:9 anamorphic version of the original movie and the 3D effect on the short is really excellent on a big projector screen - R/G glasses give you the usual headache but it's worth having as a bit of quick fun entertainment for visitors. Yes it is only 15 minutes and the price is a bit of a rip-off if you already have the original movie but it's the best film of it's kind I've come across on my screen yet. Not sure how good it will be on a normal TV though.

    I would dearly love to see some of the originals released in 3D - I saw Jaws 3D, Amityville 3D and Friday the 13th 3D at the cinema years ago and it would be fun to see those again on the big screen. It seems that have changed Shrek from the polarised lenses (from the original showing at the theme parks) to R/G for some reason - maybe that is better suited for home viewing.

    What do you mean only 15 minutes?
    Isn't the whole film in 3D? (if that's the case I won't buy it)

    Only 15 minutes of the movie are in 3-D. I saw it in WHSmiths yesterday and thought it was a bit of a rip off.

    Yes you get the full normal movie plus a 15 minute 3D special which was made specially for Universal theme parks. I agree it's a rip-off but it is good fun. It's also really good if you do not own the original film but I guess most people do.

    If the 3D section is the same as shown in Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida - then this is the ride called Shrek 4D.

    The 4th dimension part is the interactive element - which is great fun and really adds to the experience.

    If I remember correctly the story carries on from the wedding...

    Unless you don't have the first movie then don't buy this. The 15 min short will almost 100% be on the Shrek 2 dvd anyway.

    I do agree with everything that has been said but really the point of my original post was to say how good this was on a big screen. I ran it on a 106" screen and the 3D was superb! It's just a good fun thing to show to people when they come over.
