Storyline: Fearless optimist Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and sets off on an epic journey to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. From the outside Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but in reality she lives in fear as she wrestles with a mighty secret: she was born with the power to create ice and snow. It's a beautiful ability, but also extremely dangerous. Haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister Anna, Elsa has isolated herself, spending every waking minute trying to suppress her growing powers. Her mounting emotions trigger the magic, accidentally setting off an eternal winter that she can't stop. She fears she's becoming a monster and that no one, not even her sister, can help her.

Reviews
It wasn't meant for me...
I wasn't sold on seeing this one in the theaters because it looked like a "filler" animated film from Disney that appeared to only exist in order to take up space at a theater until Pixar decided to do another film and line The Mouse's pockets with sweaty, sexy cash. However, the critics raved about it, parents loved it because their kids loved it and tween girls everywhere went nuts because they finally had a Disney princess who was just as awkward as they were and, if smart phones existed in the fable of "Frozen," she would be addressing this awkward revelation with an unhealthy amount of selfies.

There is definitely an audience for this film—and here's a hint: They all act like the character of Anna and are the type who take pictures of themselves and post them online with the caption "lol I'm awkward." The reality is that I was just not meant for that audience. While the film isn't bad, the animation looks great (especially the snow effects) and Olaf the snowman is amusing and adorable, the fact remains I just wasn't impressed or interested in the final product. The characters weren't ones I could relate to or even care about (seriously, I really understood you wanted us to know that Anna was awkward but did you have to show it at all times?) and the songs just weren't catchy for me and I found them more annoying than anything else (I know you hate me now because I just admitted that I don't like the internet-adored "Let It Go").

I'll admit that I admired that Disney was legitimately trying to make a true musical and not just one of their usual colorful story with an occasional catchy song but, in the end, I just wasn't sucked into the film and ended up finding "Frozen" to be something that didn't live up to the hype and was just another forgettable Disney film that doesn't hold a candle to such films as "The Lion King" and "The Little Mermaid."

Unless you're upset with me about not being blown away by "Frozen" and you are curious to read more of my ramblings, bad jokes and movie reviews, you can fly on over to my blog; revronmovies.blogspot.com. Or, if you are mad because I didn't like "Frozen," it might be best if you don't go to my blog. The possible number of obscenities you might have and are ready to unload frightens me.

Passable Disney movie, way over-hyped
Watching frozen before all the hype would probably have been a more enjoyable experience. Sadly, I have missed it when it went out in cinemas.

Compared to other Disney movies, especially the recent ones like Rapuntzel and Princess and the Frog, Frozen comes out as a disappointment. I would go as far as say that the message this film passes to children is actually bad.

Elsa, for example, takes only one decision by herself and that is to run away from all of her problems. She completely disregards the fact that she put every other living being in the kingdom in danger. She only snaps out of it when she discovers the proverbial 'force of love' by act of providence.

Anna, on the other hand, makes a series of very bad decisions and survives only by a miracle. (e.g.: walking out in blizzard in summer clothes or leaving the whole kingdom in hands of a stranger she just met).

Songs are extremely repetitive with one exception of 'Let it go'.

I really hope the next Disney classic will be a more enjoyable experience.

Bad storytelling and sickly music
This is not good. 10 minutes into the story, I'm assuming it's a 20 minute film. The songs are not good, the American accents are too sweet, and the conversations are extremely flimsy. This is not a well-told story. It's fully predictable, and I'm sure Andersen wouldn't approve of the naivety in an attempt to mesmerise a child's imagination. This is so overly-Disney, it would probably make Walt Disney shudder thinking that story has been devalued has at his company. Ugh!

Even the opening music is mislaid, a combination of either African chanting or Native American ritual. My guess is that we were being taken into the great white north of the Inuit tribe in the Northern Territory of Canada. I'm fairly certain this was an animation project given to older Disney employees who reminisce on the old days.

Bad Characters, Music, and ideas.
I have a truly unpopular opinion here haha. I thought frozen was terrible. Very boring characters along with a boring plot. It didn't even feel like a Disney movie. I would have given it a higher rating if the animation style was "Disney" like but it wasn't. The music was bad and the voice actor choices were terrible (Elsa sounds like she's 50!).Olaf the mascot character was extremely annoying and out of place the whole movie. What was even the point of those rock troll things anyway? It feels like they were just thrown in there last minute. Though I do like what they did with Hans. He is cool. I wish Disney would go back to being good. I haven't been impressed by Disney since 2005.

I can't wait to see it again!
The last time Disney adapted a Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, we got one of my favorite films, The Little Mermaid. Now, we have a movie that has very much the same feel as Mermaid. Frozen feels like it could fit right in with the Disney movies of the late 80's/early 90's, like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King. The music is great, and I left singing it; the lead characters are very likable, with memorable sidekicks; and there are even surprises, things you would never expect to see in a Disney animated film! This is my favorite movie of the year so far, and may even be my favorite movie in years. I highly recommend this one!

Disneys absolute worst in many years
One of the worst Disney animated movies I can recall seeing. 75% inane songs, way to obvious plot even for Disney. Very, very little humour. Bland characters and just plain below par compared to what Disney and other animation studios have been able to produce in the last 10 years. The usual villains and sidekicks appear but with nothing new to offer.

I could not stop myself from skipping at least a minute from most of the songs. The voice acting was, well, bland is the best word. Absolutely mediocre. I was thoroughly disappointed

Do not by any means pay to watch this and be sure to be in the company of easily amused small children.

Admirable Twists
Walt Disney Animation gives Hans Christian Andersen's story, "The Snow Queen", their own take by rather telling it as a traditional Disney princess movie, since it's probably too difficult for the original story to a have a faithful film adaptation. The film, like any of the genre's classics, is purely delightful and undeniably heartwarming. Putting all of its traditional elements is no doubt its best feat. It's probably a little too swift and somewhat predictable, but it always hits at the right heart and it really felt genuine. Frozen is getting there as one of Disney's classics, but despite of some flaws, it's difficult to not love the film overall.

The major part of the story that has changed is it's now about a relationship of two sisters. It's an interesting choice for the plot, providing more themes to fit to the other. There is a sense that it might break some grounds to the usual form of the genre, though halfway through the film somewhat follows the same mold, which there's the typical fairy tale question about what true love really is, but eventually it manages to deliver something much clever in the end. Instead of fulfilling romantic dreams, it rather acknowledges how powerful real love can bring. It's sometimes a bit obvious, but that certain kind of heart feels quite sincere and it triumphs for it. Whatever else is left about the storytelling is it needs to work more on its pacing. It seems too quick, though animated movies have always been into faster pace, but this one palpably doesn't have enough time for breathing unless it importantly needed to. It's a very minor thing to complain about, but it's hard to avoid noticing it.

One thing that it never fails recapturing is definitely the traditional magic. All the things you loved are right here!: great characters, adventurous tone, and magnificent musical numbers.The film benefits by its cast: Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel are both admirable as Anna and Elsa, while the rest are also full of personality. What brings it to the table even more are the songs. There is a sense of Broadway indeed, blending it with its wondrous animation makes it more captivating. The most memorable among is the "Let It Go" scene that brings a lot of impact, it's easily the best of its musical set pieces, giving a grand scale of bombast and emotion. The rest of the plot are just comedy and action, but the film has a better core which made these parts the least of what we should talk about.

There's plenty of magic and heart to be found in Frozen, in spite of a slight mess through the storytelling. As an adaptation, it is able to be inventive, otherwise it's simply a lovely fairy tale movie that has the charm of the old Disney classics, but really, it's not in those heights yet. It's just a reminder that these movies can still wake up our inner child no matter what age we're in. I mean, why doubt quality?; rich setting, compelling characters, and all. Having these kinds of cinematic experience always feels like a rewarding treat. There are also remarkable songs that are worth listening within its visual splendor. And so, Frozen turns out to be as spectacular as we wanted to be.

What If a Disney Princess (and Queen) Were an X-Man?
Most unexpectedly, Disney's "Frozen" (hereafter "D's Frozen") subtly reconfigures and directs the seemingly tiresome tropes and conventions of their romantic "princess movies" into uncharted "Marvel comic" territory and themes. The main protagonist (AND apparently antagonist) Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel) is far more than your run-of-the-mill glamorous elder princess, then (Snow) Queen of the kingdom of Arondelle. She possesses nearly unlimited, almost magical power to control and shape ice and snow.

In a Marvel comic, she'd be considered a mutant with the combined powers of Ice-Man and Storm. Unfortunately and tragically, she lives in medieval times and does not have the guidance of a Charles Xavier-like mentor to help her harness the power for mankind's benefit. Well, there IS a (literally) stone troll king, Grand Pabbie (voice of Ciaran Hinds) who is aware of the extent of Elsa's powers. However, all he can recommend to Elsa's father (voice of Maurice LaMarche) and mother (voice of Jennifer Lee), King and Queen of Arendelle, is cruel, complete isolation from all humanity until she is mature enough to ascend the Arondelle throne.

Part of the reason Elsa is held in quarantine is because in childhood, while using her powers to create a winter playground for herself and younger sister Princess Anna (adult voice of Kristen Bell), she accidentally injured her head. Although non-superpowered and "normal", Anna heals with the Troll King's help. Having no memory of the incident, Anna is distraught and perplexed as to why Elsa cannot come out to play. Still, the coronation day comes, and Elsa seems to be in emotional control of herself and her abilities. Not for long. Elsa gets upset when beautiful but impulsive Anna immediately intends to get hitched to comely Southern Isles prince Hans (voice of Santino Fontana), a guy she met only minutes before in a boating "mishap". Already tense and anxious, Elsa unleashes an ice age on Arondelle and flees the shocked citizenry for the lonely refuge of the mountains.

Anna may be a mere mortal, and a bit clumsy, but she is unswervingly determined to locate and reconcile with her sister and convince her to thaw out the kingdom. This sounds like a straight-arrow objective, but many complications come into play. One, Elsa finally finds peace and the freedom to be herself in the mountains, which is celebrated in the ubiquitous, destined-to-be ageless ballad "Let It Go", and literally carves out an ice palace for herself. Two, although Anna teams up with loner ice-delivery man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his faithful, dog-like reindeer Sven, and a wacky snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad), they at first don't seem to be much help. Kristoff, like Elsa, just wants to be left alone, and Olaf keeps falling apart and foolishly wishing he could move to the tropics. But, with Sven's urging, Anna's tenacity and persistence bring this odd duo around. Third, some in the coronation party, like the Duke of Weselton ('Weaselton") voice of Alan Tudyk) and others, consider Elsa a monster and want to eliminate her. Fourth, Elsa accidentally causes Anna to suffer a "heart freeze" that could prove fatal. Can Anna achieve this miracle and save both Elsa and herself? According to the Troll King, true love is the key. But what is this true love?

"D's Frozen" continues the Mouse House's rise above older cartoon sentiments and happily- ever-after resolutions and marriages (mostly) and explores more advanced, modern emotions and themes. In Marvel Comics "X-men", mutants deal with adolescent anxiety and confusion about their powers, their fear of losing control of their powers and causing death and destruction, and the prejudicial hostility of a society that can't and won't understand them. Elsa faces these same dilemmas. "D's Frozen" moves beyond superficial, helpless romantic puppy love (like that of Anna and Hans) into more substantial love and friendship like the one within a family and between sisters. It also moves beyond conventional villains (although there are a few, and at least one unanticipated one) to show that our own worst enemies are our inhibitions and fears. "D's Frozen" also continues the relatively recent Disney movement to create independent, self-assured women who do not automatically need men to face and overcome danger and obstacles. And naturally, most importantly, "D's Frozen" helps us figure out what that true love is, with, amazingly, the help of that "wise fool" Olaf. True love is captured in the phrase that begins, "No greater love hath a man (person) for another than to….".

Best of all, "D's Frozen" achieves the weighty themes mentioned above with excellent visually artistry, suspenseful and sometimes heart-thumping action, naturally funny slapstick and verbal humor, dazzling musical numbers, satisfying character development, and happiness that is not dependent upon a "deus ex machina", but hard-won. Not bad for this Disney/Marvel collaboration. Not bad at all.

P.S.: If you have the patience to wade through the end credits, you'll find a funny disclaimer addressing Kristoff's opinion about men and their noses, and the final fate of the abominable snowman Elsa creates to protect herself from attack.

One of the Weakest Animations by Disney
In the Kingdom of Arendelle, Princess Elsa has the power of freezing and creating ice and snow, and her younger sister Anna loves to play with her. When Elsa accidentally hits Anna on the head with her gift and almost kills her, their parents bring them to trolls that save Anna's life and make her forget the ability of her sister. Elsa returns to the castle and maintain herself recluse in her room with fear of hurting Anna with her increasing power.

Their parents die when their ship sinks in the ocean and three years later, the coronation of Elsa forces her to open the gates of her castle to celebrate with the people. Anna meets Prince Hans in the party and she immediately falls in love with him and decides to marry him. But Elsa does not accept the marriage and loses control of her powers freezing Arendelle. Elsa flees to the mountain and Anna teams up with the peasant Kristoff and his reindeer Sven and with the snowman Olaf to seek out Elsa. They find Elsa in her icy castle and she accidentally hits Anna in the heart; now only true love can save her sister from death.

"Frozen" is one of the weakest animations by Disney with a lame story full of flaws in inconsistencies. There is no explanations for the origin of the gift (or curse) of Elsa. After the death of the King and Queen, Elsa grows along three years and who has governed the country? When Elsa flees, a stranger is in charge of Arandelle. Elsa finds that love is the key to control her power, but didn't she love Anna and her parents? The characters are boring, with the exception of Olaf and the songs are annoying including "Let it Go". My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Frozen: Um Aventura Congelante" ("Frozen: A Freezing Adventure")

Not even close to a Disney classic! Instead it was Barbie princess land with ice.
I just took my 3 year old to see this movie for her first theater experience and I wish I could take it back.

I saw the reviews and thought this movie would be perfect. I'm thinking Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast, Ice Age, Finding Nemo, Brave, How To Train Your Dragon....something on that level and instead got a poorly written, super cheesy, princess Disney musical. I expected a cool, fleshed out fantasy world with mystical powers and an intriguing story. Instead, it was a barbie doll princess castle, high school pop pile of pretty graphics. None of the songs were remotely memorable. The language felt very much of our time, in a bad way, and made it hard to get lost in the fantasy world. Keeps it from ever being a classic.

I wish I could take it back.

....and the clothing change to the super sexy, high slit, hip shaking, bouncing boobs, ice queen was a little disturbing. Gave it that extra malibu barbie prestige. Just what the movie needed.
