Much more mature than the first one. I actually found myself tearing up a little. Can I just say that I am so glad they didn't bring back Elsa and Anna's parents to life. That's a trope that happens a lot in kids films and every time I see it, it pisses me off. The songs were great, the acting was superb, and the animation was breathtaking. This was, in my opinion, a lot better than the first one. Well done Disney.
I'm someone who really liked The Last Jedi, so to see such a jarring course correction in this movie is a bit disappointing. I acknowledge that The Last Jedi has some flaws, but I was genuinely excited to see the plot points that were explored in this movie. To my chagrin, they decided that the 42% fan backlash was enough to try to completely deviate from Rian Johnson's previous direction. This movie just feels so angry at something. It's so reactive in its message. The biggest problems of this movie are undoubtedly the pacing and the writing. The movie's breakneck pace makes it difficult to resonate with some of the movies more dramatic moments. And the writing: OH THE WRITING!!! yeah... it's pretty bad. The actors and actresses do their best with what they're given, but charisma alone can't save this movie. Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Issac, and John Boyega (even though they treat his character like shit) carry this movie.
All in all, I feel that by giving into the minority of fan's hatred, Disney has shown it's cowardice by giving into the backlash and not sticking to their original vision. The result is a messy, convoluted, rushed, and predictable reactionary piece that you can never really love and never really hate. Makes me sad.
Quite heartwarming. Cried twice.
Fantastic start to finish.
