    I just went to see this movie with no expectations, and I loved it. I won’t say the story is great or flawless, but I will say I enjoyed every minute of the film. There were great messages in it, and certain scenes actually made me tear up (“Show Yourself” especially). It’s a good film if you’re looking for just Disney magic and feel-goodness.

    I am completely on you on the whole end choice. It really disappointed me as well. (As much as I want to talk about it too, I won't). Going to Kristoff, I wonder why they even added the idea that he was trying to propose the whole movie if they never built anything off of it. While I think it was meant to demonstrate the independence of Anna and her relationship with Elsa, it also makes him into a pushover character. I understand that not all women are interested or ready for marriage, and should deny it if they're not ready, but what does this truly add to the story? Nothing? They could have achieved the same thing if Kristoff never brought up marriage and continued to serve as a supporting character, then the whole idea of focus on Anna and Elsa would have still been there.
    I will leave at that because I could go on that point for a while.

    Agreed with everything you said except the songs. I thought they was poor. I can't remember a single track (dispite them being sung fantastic) but I could tell you numerous songs from frozen 1

    Your review is 1000% spot on!!!!! I just wanted Elsa and Anna staying together. The ending was awful. Loved your video!!!! Would you want a Frozen 3?

      Frozen III would be awful, they're given chance to handle bigger story and they blew it. Imagine Frozen III with even more unnecessary plot (will happen)

    I hated this movie. That ending sucked. Elsa/Anna separation no way. Bring Elsa back home to Anna.

    oh come one, Kristoff had the best song in the entire movie. hands down, it parodied everything that was so cliche about boy bands and power ballads. It was funny, and fit his character, because he's not a very seious character and neither was the song or anything he really sang about. I was laughing through the entire song and enjoyed it really well. But to each their own

    I think they focused on olaf beacause


    Because he dies later on in the movie.

    Also I think the point was Anna saves Elsa this time.
    Visually the movie was very good the story was all about spirits and magic which kinda was reaching.
    The movie was more mature I liked this one more because it had great songs and visuals.
    Elsa has to kinda prove herself to be the fifth spirit through different challenges. I was bummed to see Anna and Elsa went their separate ways but overall I give it 7.5, would definitely watch it again.

    Must be honest I thought this was a pretty poor follow up. Your left thinking surely after several years there must have been a meatier plot than this. It made little sense. It just was not entertaining enough. Sadly disappointed.

    There is a villain. Villain are all the people combined, and their stupidity. Because they are stupid, they want to start a war with one another. Main character, who is so powerful, that he cannot deal with only one villain, has to tell them, that their reasons for conflict are stupid. The same type of main protagonist and story as Elsa and Frozen II are Hiccup and How to train your dragon, Carol Denvers and Captain Marvel and probably Kylo Ren and Star Wars sequel trilogy.

      Nintendozilla17 Yeah, that's fine. To be honest, I only went into this film because I have a limitless card and I was waiting for traffic to die down. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it at all & I ended up pleasantly surprised

    • Nintendozilla17

      The first one actually made me care for the characters when i first saw it. The 2nd one doesn't make me care about the characters. its not because they're boring, its because its uninteresting. The film trys to be so funny, but it turns out the film was kinda annoying. Plot was not interesting or shocking. C+ for frozen 2.

    I actually hated the forced villain in the first film, so there being no villain here is an improvement. Actually, I enjoyed Frozen II while I hated Frozen with a passion, so it must be doing something right even if I can't put my finger on it (because it's too cold and and could get stuck).

    I agree with you on the Olaf thing. The movie was visually fantastic. I didn’t mind the story choices as much as you. The two Elsa songs are amazing. The song with the dude made me laugh because they did it like a Brian Adams or Peter Satera video from the late 80’s early 90’s. I thought it was fun. Lol. I liked the story a lot more than you now that I think about it. I know the choice you’re talking about. I actually liked that choice. Anyway... good times as always Chris. I gave it an A. I get where you’re coming from thiugh

    Chris, I normally vibe with your opinions, but I felt like you were way off on this one. It's a very insightful story about identity, and I for one found it to be compelling and deeply satisfying. Just wanted to respectfully disagree! I love your reviews!

    I absolutely loved it because that was the was just so out of place that it was hilarious, and as much as I love it, that is something I just cannot overlook. As soon as those guitar riffs started I knew I was in for something weird, and had a great experience, just not something I expected in a Disney movie at all 😂😂 Totally something you could just play anywhere else and no one would guess it’s a Disney song.

    THANK YOU for saying this! The whole movie was sooooooo good! but the end didn't make sense (to me). It really made me sad! I mean that seriously was not a happy ending man! (maybe it isn't a proper reason not to be satisfied with the ending BUT IT IS!) Me and my little sister relate so much with Elsa and Anna as we practically grew apart but are really close now. I am having a slight bit of anxiety cuz of the ending as I literally feel Elsa so much.

    what? can there not be two queens? that's why she has to go to exile? -_- Narnia had 2!

    I just watched this recently. The animation is so damn amazing, but I get your point about the flaw with the story. But you can't deny the setup on the lore for the opening hymn!

    Thank you for acknowledging the character and plot flaws! Most people are just raving about how amazing it is and I’m not sure I loved it that much.

    I completely disagree with this score. I saw this movie tonight and I'd give it a solid 7/10 and the story was 100x better than the first movie. I've been watching Chris's reviews for over 3 years now and this is one of the first reviews that I 100% disagree with. This movie is pretty damn good.

    I was very excited for this film. I enjoyed it but I do agree that it does have its problems. Some of the story choices I did not like at all. Especially the thing that happens at the end! Ugh! Why?

    Frozen is the highest grossing animation of all time so of course it gets a sequel and Disney can sell all the frozen toys that didn't sell the first time just put new packaging on them

  • Daakkuu YRS

    Frozen 2 had a bad story, full of cliches and none of the characters did something usefull. However, when I think about what I liked in the original, and that's was the sisters' bond, Frozen 2 took it to the extreme in a good way. It was just a sugar cube one by one. So overall I'm satisfied with the movie, but I still can't think it as a proper sequel. It was like two hours of children books of Frozen that Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff have fun. But that's what I wanted to be honest.

    Am I the only one who thought the movie was about race and classism??....The wall, the two different groups, when Elsa quotes that fear blinds you, and that doing the right thing will not take away from you, "Arendelle(America) didn't fall"...that's what I got. (Making this comment before watching the video)
