Critic Reviews for The Snow Queen

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The message gets muddled with plot strands going every which way, though the real culprit is some awkward animation.

Top Critic

A Russian animated adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale, Snow Queen proves both visually cruddy and narratively muddled.

unlikely to stay long in your memory, but Snow Queen might sustain younger viewers

The National (UAE)

The visuals are poorly conceived, with characters that are hardly more expressive than Weebles. The vocal performances are uninspired and uninvolving.

CGI fairy tale remake features the occasional fright.

Don't be surprised if your child asks to watch Brave or Shrek again when it's over.

Audience Reviews for The Snow Queen

OK. Too start of this review. If you look at the release dates. They were trying to rush to beat frozen. Now to the real review. Bad Voiceacting, Poor Animation lacking of frozen & Rip offs of many different characters. I give this movie half a star.

The Snow Queen is a boring animation along the lines of Shrek that has some decent animation but a bland story with lazily written dialogue. Young kids will tire quickly and adults even quicker but for the few who last through the horrible first hour of the film will enjoy the heroic ending which salvages this flop of a film even if it really isn't worth salvaging.

What a terrible movie. Terrible terrible voice acting. Lame story. Disjointed parts in the story too. Cliche. Uninspired characters. Just worked terribly as a movie.
