Movie Review: Frozen

Don't you think it would be cool to have ice powers? In November
2013, Elsa didn't think so, but after a while, she realized it wasn't so bad.

Directing this 108 minute animation/adventure/comedy/family/fantasy/musical is Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee.

Lending their voices are:  Kristen Bell as Anna, Idina Menzel as Elsa, Jonathan Groff as Kristoff, Josh Gad as Olaf, Santino Fontana as Hans, Alan Tudyk as Duke and Ciaran Hinds as Pabbie/Grandpa.

Elsa has kept her powers a secret ever since the accident. Unfortunately, when her secret is revealed during an argument with her little sister Anna, it's in front of everybody. Scared and upset Elsa runs away, as everyone reacts out of fear to what they've seen her do. Finally realizing why there has been
so much distance and coldness from Elsa over the years, Anna wants nothing more than to be there for Elsa. So, off Anna goes, starting a journey that will hopefully reunite the sisters. After all these years, Anna finally realizes that Elsa was just trying to protect her, so now it's Anna's turn to protect Elsa.

So I was seriously surprised on how good this movie was. I can't say there have been a lot of good kid's movies lately, but this one made up for it. The storyline was very cool, and the playthrough was highly entertaining. The animation was great, it's filled with not only beautiful scenery, but also eye catching special effects. It has a solid cast that did a good job with the voice work. Now the music, it was freaking awesome. My favorite song was Elsa's solo about being free. Here's a flick that the kids are going to like, and even better news, so will the adults. Plus it's worth the money to go see. So overall it has great music, good story, something for the whole family, filled with laughs and well worth the time to go see it.

It's rated PG (but does have a snow monster that could be scary to younger kids).

4 stars for this winter wonderland.
