The Good

Fantastic animation, perfect voice casting, and the best Disney soundtrack in years.

The Bad

Less of a negative than an observation: the animation is so good, 3D seems unnecessary.

Bottom Line

Top-notch story, animation, voice acting, and soundtrack have earned Disney’s Frozen our first-ever 5-star rating.

This Quick Review is spoiler-free.

Last night, I took the kids to see Disney’s latest animated feature film, Frozen.

Frozen is the story of two princess sisters, Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell), isolated from the world around them, because of Elsa’s uncontrollable magical powers. When Elsa becomes queen and accidentally plunges the kingdom into eternal winter, she exiles herself, and Anna sets out to save both her sister and the kingdom.

That’s pretty much all of the story I can discuss without giving away any spoilers, but during Anna’s adventures, she encounters living snowmen, love-expert trolls, a pack of unfriendly wolves, and one very jolly moose.

The animation and voice acting in Frozen is top-notch. Kristen Bell’s portrayal of Anna was as charming as any Disney princess to ever appear on screen. She reminded me of a cross between Ariel and Belle, two of my daughters’ favorites.

Speaking of my daughters, during one of the musical numbers in the film, my youngest leaned over and whispered to me, “I love this song!” Which brings me to my next comment about the film: the soundtrack is superb. In my opinion, the songs in Frozen are right up there alongside the soundtracks from The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast. They are catchy, clever, and funny.

The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of Frozen. The excellent story, animation, voice acting, and soundtrack have earned it Review Dad’s first-ever 5-star rating.
