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.

...one of the most beautifully animated films of the decade, filled with stunning visual pyrotechnics and incredible attention to detail.

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.

Not much gain against a good deal of loss.

The characters are sprightly, the songs tailor-made for the Broadway show they'll someday inhabit.

The whole thing left me cold, partly because there's no actual villain and thus very little concrete drama.

If they're lacking in true firepower, the same goes for "Frozen II": it never reaches the heights of its predecessor, but it's an adequate romp in the snow.

Frozen II is destined to be one of those movies children will want to see dozens of times.

It's never surprising, yet its bursts of pictorial imagination - snowflakes that streak like shooting stars - keep you engaged, as do Elsa and Anna, who still aren't waiting for life to happen.

One thing that really sets "Frozen 2" apart from its predecessor is the visuals, which are as gorgeous and awe-inspiring as computer animation can possibly get.
November 20, 2019
While the visuals sometimes have stunning beauty and motion, there is little on screen or in the soundtrack that feels truly unknown, or carries any of the freshness of the snow that covers Elsa's kingdom.
November 20, 2019
What actually takes the wind out of Frozen 2′s many attempts at epic gust is its repeated failure to imagine and entertain.
November 20, 2019
It's hard to see how the same team who made something so cool in 2013 could deliver something so - there's no other word for it - lukewarm.
November 20, 2019
It adds up to a marginally more interesting experience than the first "Frozen," but this sequel would have benefited from venturing a touch further into the unknown.
November 20, 2019
Forget the convoluted plot. The animation bursts with wonders and it's a pleasure to re-connect with those empowered sister princesses: Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell). Why is the sequel never the equal? Frozen II just might break the jinx.
November 20, 2019
It's easier to think about Frozen II as a product than as a film because a (sometimes stunning-looking) product is all that it feels like.
Top Critic

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.
