  • Frozen 2... is more mature, ambitious, and intricate than its predecessor.

  • Frozen II is a worthy follow-up with enough heart, action, and music to entertain younger and older viewers alike.

  • [Some] sequences have a gleam and a rhythm to them that encapsulates Disney animation at its purest and most sinuous. The film itself doesn't hit that sweet spot that makes Pixar animations, for example, fun for adults as well as their children.

    November 26, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • ...one of the most beautifully animated films of the decade, filled with stunning visual pyrotechnics and incredible attention to detail.

    November 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Because the first movie generated such a bracing gust of enthusiasm, Frozen 2 will inevitably be nitpicked and judged against those lofty standards. Still, there's plenty to enjoy for those willing to chill out, and yes, let the past go.

  • It's what you expect from the characters and world, and it gets the job done. But the most enthusiasm one can muster for "Frozen II" is it's perfectly adequate, unlikely to create a seismic cultural shift like its predecessor.

Audience Reviews for Frozen II

    Even as a childless adult, I loved the first Frozen. It was charming, beautiful, and brought something that was at the time fresh and new for the Disney formula. The sequel…eh. Honestly the whole thing feels like one of the better Disney direct-to-dvd sequels. That's the thing, one of the better direct-to-dvd sequels. Some of those things weren't bad, but none of them were great. To start with what I liked, holy crap the movie is gorgeous. Every frame is amazing to look at. It's also got some new creativity to it. The water effects are lovely, and some of the new creatures are imaginative and beautiful. It's got a couple good songs, nothing on a "Let it Go" level but Elsa's two songs are still very good. I also liked how their isn't really an antagonist. There's a problem, but there's no real antagonist, it's more about the mystery, and for the first bit of the movie I was intrigued by the mystery. However, that's where the problems start. The mystery just kind of meanders about and eventually I got bored by it. It takes too long to reveal itself and by the time it does you've figured it out and you don't care. It gets distracted by weird subplots with the secondary characters who are really only here because first movie, and they just make the thing puts along. Then the songs, yeah Elsa's two songs are great, but good lord every other song is terrible and there's way too many of them. I guess little Frozen lovers might like it fine, but I think even they'll be more likely to keep watching the first one over this one. Personally, I like it fine I guess. I'm glad I saw it once, I might watch it a couple more times. But whereas the first movie I couldn't wait to see again, this one I really feel ambivalent about.

    While not as magically enticing as the original, Frozen II still conjures up a majestic aura of solid animations and expansive arcs in the world and its characters. The sequel to the 2013 surprise hit also doubles-down on the amount of infectiously entertaining musical numbers and is enough for the family to be charmed by. 3.9/5

    Anna and Elsa's story continues in Frozen II. When Elsa hears mysterious voices on the wind she and her sister Anna, along with Kristoff, Sven and Olaf, journey to the northern land of the mystics. The original cast returns and are joined by Evan Rachel Wood and Alfred Molina. The songs aren't quite as good this time, though there are a couple of standouts; such as "Into the Unknown" and "Lost in the Woods." And the animation is just amazing. However, at times it comes off as a little overly staged and formulaic, and Disney tries to sneak in some politics that are wholly inappropriate for the target audience. Additionally, unlike the first film, the plot plays to all of the traditional tropes and clichés (good guys turn out to be bad, the past is retconned with new revelations, etc.). Yet while it fails to live up the original, Frozen II is entertaining and a lot of fun.

    Disney knows how to tell a good story but this sequel pales in much comparison to the first film. It takes a dark passage and the music seems too loud and almost over operatic. It still has nice moments to touch your heart, but I enjoyed Frozen so much more. 02-15-2020
