    Frozen is a delightful animated musical, a return to form for Disney animation with an intriguing story and terrific songs.

    Frozen impresses by conveying coldness in all its frostbitten beauty, from northern lights and blizzards, to ice magnifying, refracting and reflecting light. The movie is a lovely example for animation enthusiasts to study.

    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.

    The film transcends its various borrowings and occasional stumblings with a modern, exuberant spirit that draws heat from Broadway-style musical numbers and, before and after everything else, from marvelous 3-D animation

    This always enjoyable tale of mysterious magic, imperiled princesses and square-jawed men of action proves longer on striking visuals than on truly engaging or memorable characters.

    The story — aside from a climax that plays like a too-knowing rebuke to Disney formula — goes tediously through the motions. It isn’t only Papa Walt’s head that’s been put on ice.

    While we all love Disney and the happiness it brings to everyone, sometimes it over-shows ideals to young girls that might not come true in reality. "Frozen" addresses the meaning of love right from the start, with an adult Anna, who being separated from reality for her entire life has no idea what love truly means. .As an avid Disney fan, and as someone with two sisters, this is a movie that people of all ages will love to see.

    This is a good story that is focused on a sibling relationship first and a romance second, which I find refreshing. The two lead female characters are unique and strong (no dainty princess tripe), and the music is great. Overall, I found this to be a very good animated movie... Expand

    My daughters enjoyed very much the movie, especially the music, my son was not as impressed with the movie. I think overall the movie is a good family movie, but maybe more for girls. The movie has a good storyline with entertaining characters, a good soundtrack and very good animation. Expand

    I went to go see the movie today and thought it was a very nice family movie. I didn't expect it to be a princess story and though predictable it's good comedy and Olaf is an awesome character. Expand

    i hate to hate this movie. it's very good except for the comedy aspects. they tried to take a more mature and emotional but fail with its childish and unfunny jokes. i would watch this again for the really touching and deep parts of the movie witch it gets down pretty well. the movie lacked comedy, it goes from such a deep and compelling story to jokes that feel like they where meant for 5 year old's. i have to admit that some jokes in frozen where funny but most to all jokes made by the snowman (forget his name) feel very inmature and not funny. all in all i think it was a OK movie and if it kept with more mature jokes that where meant for kinds and adult it would have gotten a 8 or 9 out of 10 in my books Expand

    Just another brainless copy paste movie by disney. I watched for an hour and a half and yet at the end of the movie, I
    actually felt depressed. Expand
