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.
December 8, 2014
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.
December 8, 2014
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.
December 8, 2014
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.
December 6, 2013
The glitz will satisfy militantly feminine sprogs, but is completely at odds with Elsa's gutsy character and Frozen's pioneering message.
December 5, 2013
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.
December 5, 2013
Glorious family entertainment.
December 5, 2013
A very decent seasonal Disney feature which amply refreshes a haggard old template.

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.
November 29, 2013
[Its] humming industry and multi-pixelated craft come lit by a spark of something close to genuine enchantment.
November 27, 2013
In a year of weak animated features, Frozen - loosely based on "The Snow Queen" - takes the lead by default.
November 27, 2013
It's hard to generate a sense of warmth when the plot points all feel so coldly calculated, and it doesn't help that the musical numbers are so pedestrian.
November 27, 2013
Frozen is one of the few recent films to capture that classic Disney spirit.
November 27, 2013
While the journey may seem overly familiar, the destination has some surprises in store.
November 27, 2013
Make way for a new kind of fairy tale. These Frozen princesses are the kind we can definitely warm to.
November 27, 2013
"Frozen" is a winter wonder of a family film, the sort of movie you hope for during the holiday season. Well, it's here, go see it.
November 27, 2013
Frozen establishes a strong, confident tone: Cool mythology, rich, vivid animation, and 3-D effects that are actually worth seeing, not just migraine-inducing distractions.
