Frozen 2 Review: Elsa, Anna and crew make their grand return!

The Hit:

It has been six years since Frozen has come out and although that's a big gap between sequels, it turned out to be something that ended up working out for the better. 

Cast: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff, Sterling K. Brown, Evan Rachel Wood, Alfred Molina, Martha Plimpton

Pros: After much thought, this follow up, in my opinion, is better than the first. Maybe because I'm a guy the story was just a tad darker, not so much that kids shouldn't go see this but it wasn't so happy and cheery a whole chunk of the movie like its predecessor. It had more moments where it dived into what happened to Elsa and Anna's past and how their parents met their unfortunate demise. Another reason it is my favorite out of the two, is we get to see more action shots involving Elsa and her powers and other creatures as well. The story flowed pretty nicely and was easy to follow. Musical numbers were good, not great, but good. I call that a positive because you won't be hearing a song from this new Disney flick be overplayed like some songs from the original and I call that a win. I don't get emotional a whole lot with Disney movies, but sometimes they do get me to tear up just a little and I got that toward the end, so be warned. Voice actors new and old did a wonderful job as expected. Animation blew me away and one new addition that really caught my eye was the water horse from the trailers, it was beautiful and majestic. 

Cons: The ending was predictable, but what can you expect from a Disney movie. Also, be warned, children will be noisy throughout the theatre and if that bothers you, then you might need to wait till it's available to purchase to watch at home. 

This is definitely one you take your family out to enjoy. Me saying that it's a tad darker is not something that should scare you from going. Kids won't understand what is being said but we adults will. It sorta targets both children and adult audiences alike and that makes it more enjoyable for everyone.

Key Info: Rated PG. Genres: Animation, Adventure, Comedy

The Verdict:
