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.

Critic Reviews for Frozen

  • Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee's extremely loose adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen strives to put a post-feminist spin on an archetypal Disney princess fantasy, with mixed success.

    Dec 8, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen is the loose inspiration for Frozen, a celebration of family and the bond of sisterhood set against a beguiling snowbound backdrop. And like Tangled before it, Frozen has all the hallmarks of an instant classic.

  • The animation is simply superb. Ice has never looked so good, except as the real thing. Technical precision and innovation is expected nowadays in computer animation but Frozen combines that with a gorgeously rich design.

    Dec 8, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Dec 8, 2014 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Dec 8, 2014 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • Frozen reminds you how many animated films rely more on inside jokes. It's modern without being hip, earnest with being sappy.

    Everyone's children's favorite film works for grown-ups too. Mostly. There is a lot of singing and some of the songs are great, others feel a tad forced, though. The plot is surprisingly simplistic, but at least offers a surprise or two. The characters are likable enough and especially the snow man brings the best laughs. It's the artwork, scenery and landscapes that make this film's special atmosphere. Can't go wrong to have a nice afternoon with the kids with this.

    Believe the hype - Frozen is not just a fantastic Disney film, but a fantastic film in general thanks to it's catchy soundtrack, quirky script, realistic characters and important theme of acceptance.

    Who knew a pack of annoying songs in the entire movie could be this annoying? Only giving this one star to Olaf the Snowman and the teaser for being better than the movie.

    This movie had touches of Disney's glory days of the 90s but it ultimately fails to deliver.
