Wonderfully enchanting wintry fare.
The studio made a great film.
Frozen is fabulous.
As far as animated movies go, it doesn't get that much better than Frozen. It's a new Disney classic.
Frozen, for all its innovations, is not fundamentally revolutionary. Its animated characters are the same familiar, blank-faced, big-eyed storybook figures. But they are a little more psychologically complex than their Disney forerunners.
Frozen is a delightful animated musical, a return to form for Disney animation with an intriguing story and terrific songs.
Disney’s Frozen works beautifully as a timeless fairy tale with a modern twist.
Has the ring of classic Disney seamlessly combined with a modern-day sensibility.
A great big snowy pleasure with an emotionally gripping core, brilliant Broadway-style songs and a crafty plot.
This may be yet another variation on the usual coming-of-age/sisterhood themes so familiar in Disney movies, but who does those better?
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 is a squarely enchanting fairy tale that shows you how the definition of what's fresh in animation can shift.
Engaging characters, an unforced pro-girl agenda and amusing songs make this at least the equal to last year’s “Brave.”
Just squeezably lovely.
Frozen hews to real, recognisable plumb-lines and casts a lingering spell.
Frozen is one of the few recent films to capture that classic Disney spirit.
The animation is beautiful, the music is catchy and the lyrics are clever.
The impact of this sisterhood fable on viewers should be as warm and rapturous as Olaf the snowman’s dream of summer. Child, teen or septuagenarian, you’ll warm to Frozen.
The animation is pretty, the songs are tuneful, and Josh Gad gets big laughs as Olaf, a snowman with a sun fetish. It's the holidays, people, work with it.
Frozen could also leave its mark as the next step in the Disney Princess feminist revisionism championed by last year’s “Brave.” Where that film staunchly pushed a men-don’t-define-me theme throughout, here it’s the requisite fairy tale ending that gets tweaked.
Not great Disney but good enough to engage viewers young and old.
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.
In its simple pleasures, it’s every bit as enjoyable as "Winnie The Pooh," with a strong and valuable moral undercurrent to boot.
With most of its voices hailing from Broadway, it's a good bet the composers have one eye fixed on a future stage incarnation; makes sense, then, that there'd be references to a couple of Disney's Broadway hits. The opening number sounds a lot like "The Lion King"; then there's a "Beauty and the Beast"-style tour of the town.
The animated comedy-adventure has a sweet and very modern message, plus strong characters. More important, the movie blends the music-minded mentality of yore with the more recent ambition (thank you, Pixar) of truly appealing to all ages.
It's entertaining, and following an old Disney tradition Frozen works some old-school magic in its nonhuman characters.
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
Extravagant care is taken with minutiae, and the directors, Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, whistle through the first twenty minutes of the plot with a controlled giddiness that would leave many live-action adventures staggering in their tracks. Yet what a curious plot it is.
At its best, though, it breaks a little more new ground for Disney, escaping the yet-another-princess mode and finding new kinds of family dynamics to explore, and new ways to step outside its long-established boundaries.
Frozen is a fun ride with some catchy tunes.
Energetic, humorous and not too cloying, as well as the first Hollywood film in many years to warn of global cooling rather than warming, this tuneful toon upgrades what has been a lackluster year for big studio animated fare.
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.
It's hard to generate a sense of warmth when the plot points all feel so coldly calculated, and it doesn't help that the musical numbers are so pedestrian.
For all its professionalism, I found it as cold as the ice rink at Rockefeller Center.
Little girls will absolutely love it, though. That much is undeniable.
There’s wit and whimsy in this 53rd Disney cartoon, a distant cousin of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale, “The Snow Queen.”
The film's empowering themes of feminine strengths and bonds eventually flourish in novel fashion.
Not quite up there with "Tangled," but a solid addition to the canon. Catchy tunes will have you humming, but the hunt for the next "The Little Mermaid" continues...
The plot’s all over the place, but there are a lot of laughs and some strong action beats along the way.
What’s crucially missing, however, is a hissable villain. Nor are there any memorable tunes, which is too bad given that Broadway star Menzel is playing Elsa.
The real highlight, though, is the music by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
Frozen can count in its favor visual grandeur, two energetic young women as co-leads, and a couple of plot twists that place the film a cut above your average princess fare.
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.
