In Disney’s latest production, Frozen tells the story of two sisters Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristin Bell) who were the princesses of Arendelle, who drift apart from each other after an accident with Elsa’s ice powers. When Elsa is crowned the queen of Arendelle, Anna meets and falls in love with Prince Hans of the Southern Isles (Santino Fontana). The two are suddenly engaged and Elsa refuses to bless their marriage. As Anna and Elsa argue, Elsa accidentally exposes her powers and flees Arendelle, setting off eternal winter. Anna seeks help from mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), reindeer Sven, and snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) to bring Elsa back.
Frozen has continued the trend of Disney’s revival of the 2010s following Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph of critical and commercial success. The voice acting and characters are well played, the animation is colourful and well made,the soundtrack is memorable and enjoyable to listen to, and the plot is interesting, especially the questioning of romantic motives.
The main fault in Frozen is the huge unanswered questions within the plot, for example, how and why did Elsa get her powers, why were Anna’s memories altered, who ruled Arendelle before Elsa came of age, and the most important one: WHY IS KRISTOFF’S FAMILY CONSISTING OF MAGICAL TROLLS? Even if some of these questions were answered, it could add much more to the film.
Overall, Frozen is an enjoyable film for all ages and has a great sense of humour. My advice is to go to see this film while it’s still in the cinema.
