There's... enough jokes, set-pieces and songs to enable this film to justify its existence, above and beyond the needs of the Disney corporation's accounting ledgers.

Frozen was built around an anthem to letting your emotions take control because no matter how flawed the results might be, it was preferable to sterile perfection. Maybe the people who made the new movie should watch it again.

Congratulations, Disney. Mission accomplished.

The sequel is a solid, if not quite inspired, follow-up to "Frozen" (2013).

It's not a classic, but it's inspired in its own right.

Is it as spectacular as the original? No, but let it go. It's still a beautifully designed, sharply written and toe-tapping piece of family entertainment.

"Frozen II," by contrast, turns out to be a fairly typical sequel: overly busy and meandering, but sure to please all the young Elsas in the audience.

It's almost a reparations story, really, which would be more touching-and interesting-if the sacrifices stuck.

If it all seems less effortless, more workmanlike than the first film, with a very complex storyline that will definitely be harder to follow for younger fans, there's plenty to like, especially the lush visuals.

Frozen II sometimes gets impressionistic enough to reach the heights of its forebear.

Does it offer any further evidence to those who interpreted "Let It Go" as Elsa's covert coming-out anthem? Sadly no, though she remains an intriguingly elliptical canvas on which to project genuinely groundbreaking ideas about empowerment and identity.

With "Frozen II," Disney has done the impossible: It's made a terrific animated-musical sequel.
November 14, 2019
This kind of self-awareness can be a tricky proposition... But the approach mostly works for this sweet, diverting sequel, which understands... just how susceptible the audience might be to "Frozen" fatigue.

When your story relies on snow statues coming to life at convenient moments and acting out arguments that took place 30 years earlier, that's probably a sign that your screenplay could do with another two or three drafts.
November 14, 2019
The visuals, as expected, are lovely, but there's little here to match the revolutionary power (sisters are doing it for themselves etc) of the first film or its inherent charm.
November 14, 2019
No sequel is essential, but "Frozen 2" makes the argument that, even in the fairy tale land of Disney, they can still be important.
November 14, 2019
Frozen 2 makes a valiant effort to live up to its predecessor, but can't escape its shadow.
November 14, 2019
The only surprising thing about this film is how complex and contrived it is. It's nearly impossible to follow what's happening, and what motivates the characters to take action.
November 14, 2019
It's going to make a lot of money. It will also have millions of people counting the hours till Frozen 3. I. Just. Can't. Wait.

In a world where old-timers accuse the youth of being oversensitive snowflakes, "Frozen II" shows what it means to have one's heart in the right place.
