Movie Info

Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, "Frozen" is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

Disney has another hit in its repertoire with this heartfelt story of sisterly love and one of the few films released in 3-D this year that splendidly incorporates the technology into the plot line.

Frozen is a glacially stiff, perpetually unamusing animated musical with a talk-singing score that will leave one pining for the lifeless soundtrack to The Princess and the Frog.

Frozen reminds you how many animated films rely more on inside jokes. It's modern without being hip, earnest with being sappy.

Extravagant care is taken with minutiae, and the directors, Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, whistle through the first twenty minutes of the plot with a controlled giddiness that would leave many live-action adventures staggering in their tracks.

If you thought there was only so much to be done with ice and snow as visual fields, think again along the lines of prismatic crystals, epic storms and fantastical structures built on water's gift for freezing itself into see-through art.

Frozen' has both showtunes and darkness, but most satisfying is a formula-defying finale that successfully subverts the fairytale status quo.

Audience Reviews for Frozen


A visually stunning Disney animation with wonderful songs and a story that boldly subverts the conventions of fairy tales by having no women in need of princes to rescue them. Still, it could have really done without a shocking, cliched revelation about a certain character in the last act.

It took me a while to get into this one and whilst the story is no masterpiece, musicals rarely are and it's actually a damned fine musical. It ain't the jazzy Disney of the mid 20th C. that we grew up on and not all songs work but those that do really make the movie. That and the catchphrases...

If its final scene had ended with one more musical reprise and not with such a typical fade-out conclusion, 'Frozen' would've cemented its place in my top 3 favourites of 2013. But hey, it's the movie that completed the rejuvenation of Walt Disney Animation Studios, and for that I'm eternally thankful.
