Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
A sweet, magical film filled with great music, likable characters, and striking effects, Frozen is a fairy tale about overcoming obstacles and the power of true love. Princesses Anna and Elsa are sisters and the closest friends until one day Elsa discovers that she can no longer control her power to create ice and snow. Terrified for the safety of her sister and everyone around her, Elsa isolates herself and vows to never feel any sort of passionate emotion again in hopes of suppressing her powers. But when Elsa comes of age and is set to be crowned queen, she must open the gates of the palace and let in the public, not to mention her sister Anna. Things go horribly wrong and Anna pursues her sister into the mountains in an attempt to save Elsa and reverse the deep freeze that Elsa has inadvertently released on the kingdom of Arendelle. Along the way, Anna joins forces with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), an ice seller with a strangely close relationship with his reindeer Sven, and Olaf (Josh Gad), a goofy snowman whom she suddenly remembers from early childhood. In the end, Anna and Elsa discover that only by embracing their deepest feelings do they have a chance of saving themselves and the kingdom. Inspired by "The Snow Queen" story by Hans Christian Andersen, the film has plenty of quirky, lovable characters along with a nice blend of corny humor, serious sentiment, suspense, and peril. Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel deliver rousing performances of great music that includes original songs by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and an original score by Christophe Beck, and the visual effects are simply stunning. Frozen definitely succeeds in captivating audiences young, old, and every age in between. --Tami Horiuchi

Overall, I found the plot refreshing. The idea of magical "wintering" powers was fun - I often wondered if this was the cause behind the my personal non-stop winter wonderland.
The one thing I love about Disney/Pixar movies is the subtly injected "adult humor". It keeps us entertained in the background as the kids are enjoying talking snowmen.
I give this 4 stars because I felt like the plot was a little jerky. Granted, it flowed pretty well and it resolved the major issues, but there were many times where I'd wonder why they chose a certain point in the movie to talk about something versus a different point in the movie. There were some places where answers came too soon or not soon enough. Granted, this is a kids movie and for the most part they probably don't care, but I still think it's important from a writing/entertainment perspective. It was a bit like plot whiplash with no explanation at certain points.
I still highly recommend this as a fun family movie for any time of the year! Though maybe wait until the summer to watch this if you don't want to be completely annoyed by versions of "Let It Go" on the radio right now.
I took a couple of tries to get my 4K DVD player's glasses to work (I was panicking that the disc was defective) but I finally got them to work. WOW...my wife and I were blown away! The 3D version turned out to be awesome and I could find no issues with the movie. I so loved it and I totally loved the UK version.
With all the hoorah of this film we just expected more bang for the Blu-ray buck here. It was a smash hit, why not put a bit more substance into the home release? They were going to recoup any expenses, safe to say. There is a huge array of b-roll (recording studio) footage on youtube, it would have been fabulous to see stuff like that here.
All that said, great film, and what "BONUS EXTRAS" (what a silly term they slapped on the box!) they did include are worth watching.
1. Elsa’s ice powers are never explained or defined. She is capable of effortlessly creating an enormous elaborate ice castle and freezing huge bodies of water in seconds, she is immune to cold, she can create autonomous sentient servants at will or in one case accidently and she is able to drastically alter weather patterns for an indeterminate radius. As if that were not enough she is able to radically alter her clothing which seems to be a non-ice based power unless her new clothes are some kind of malleable ice and her body temperature is below freezing. I originally thought of Elsa as a female version of Frozone from The Incredibles but she’s actually more like Dr. Manhattan from The Watchmen and apparently all of this vast power was kept in check by a pair of ladies gloves. I know people will counter with ‘It’s a MOVIE, relax’ and there are movies where mystery is a plus and over explaining can hurt the flow but this really is a movie that needs some kind explanation. I don’t get the impression that the lack of background was a stylistic choice. I get the impression the writers just didn’t feel like bothering.
2. Somehow Elsa is able to create massive, intricate ice objects and intelligent ice creatures and yet when she inexplicably changes the weather around her kingdom she has no ability to remove it. How can she be so commanding of her powers in some respects and so unable to control them in others? If her lady gloves were able to restrain her powers for years why not just put them back on? The main source of problem is that Elsa has created winter in the kingdom. If Elsa truly cannot stop the winter why doesn’t she just stroll further away? How far does her sphere of winter extend?
3. ***SPOILER ALERT*** Most of Elsa’s life is spent trying to protect her younger sister from harm even though it causes years of separation between the two. Right after Elsa makes a speech to Anna about how she can’t come back because she may harm her she does a sweep with her hand and nails Anna right in the heart with ice. For all Elsa’s talk she is incredibly careless. As if that weren’t enough Elsa creates a massive ice beast that seems intent on killing Anna. If you’re trying to protect your sister sending a murderous monster after her is probably not the best course of action.
4. Late in the film the villain of the story decides to reveal himself and proceeds to lay out his entire dastardly plan. If he had just kept his fool mouth shut he would have been successful but instead he has to pontificate for no good reason and blow his plan.
The problems listed above all stem from lazy writing. Diligent writing fills in the gaps and explains what’s going on. Lazy writing just has things happen. The film takes no risks and has a trite paint by numbers ending. For all the talk about Anna being a new kind of Disney princess I preferred Merida from Brave as a much more believable, well rounded character. This is in no way a BAD movie; in fact the scene where Elsa’s powers are revealed and she runs off was brilliantly done. My issue is that there are so many better animated films out there and if people are falling over themselves over Frozen they really need to watch some of the other animated films available.
