Frozen–Movie Review

I am not always a fan of animated movies, especially Disney animated movies. I went to Frozen anyway, and it turned out to be much better than I was anticipating. In fact, it almost seems that they listened to some of the complaints that many people have voiced over the years, and changed how the heroine is saved in the climax of the movie.

Another thing that is enjoyable about Frozen is that it takes place in Norway, which is not the usual setting for a Disney movie. How do I know it was Norway, and not a different Scandinavian country? Well, it is full of Fjord horses, the main city is built next to a fjord, and they mention lutefisk.

The story is better than many animations, as well. It deals with family issues and with the subject that Disney often ruins or makes absurd–falling in love. Of course, there is also a lot of comic relief, available in the form of a silly reindeer, a talking snowman, and, of course, trolls.

Frozen is a movie that a whole family could enjoy, especially at this time of year. It certainly doesn’t hurt that the soundtrack is quite excellent, too!

  1. I’m still mad at how they changed the story, to be honest.

    Originally, it was about a girl who saved a boy, with the help of another girl.

    If I can get over how irritated I am that they changed the dudesel to a damsel, I might watch it anyway. I was interested in the Scandinavian setting.

    But honestly, we couldn’t have one dude in distress and a girl saving him as a main storyline? Not once? Not even one single time? Bah.

  2. I’ve read a lot of Andersen’s works, but not “The Snow Queen,” so I didn’t realize they made that change. I can understand your irritation with that! However, the way they handle the idea of a “one true love who will save you” is pretty hilarious. And the “saving” is definitely done in a different and interesting way. I would recommend you try to get over your reasonable irritations enough to watch it anyway. After all, there’s also a talking snowman and a reindeer who acts a bit like a dog! 🙂
