Movie Review: Frozen (2013)
Plot Summary (Taken from IMDB): Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
My Review: One of the best things about this film is the music. “Vuelie”, the opening song of the movie, is beautiful. It’s reprise is also lovely and appropriate for the scene it is heard in. In addition, the songs involving Elsa and Anna as kids and adult princesses are cute and emotional. Furthermore, Idina Menzel’s song “Let It Go” has terrific vocals.
Besides the music, the animation was amazing at times. It is at its best during scenes with lots of snow, water, and ice. It looks so real you could almost touch it!
In addition, there are a couple of twists in the film’s plot that saved it from being too cheesy. One was unexpected and should be done a little more often and the other was noble and touching.
The only flaw in the film was the character of Elsa. She could have been developed a little more. Yes, she’s a person with ice powers who pushes others away, but what else?
Overall, the film is a nice and poignant work about the bond between sisters. I recommend it to families and any Disney fan.
Here is the song for “Do You Wanna Be a Snowman?” (it’s one of the best songs in the film and goes from little kid Anna to adult Anna singing to Elsa)
