‘Frozen’ film review
Disney Film Review
This is the best Disney film I have ever seen. Strong statement I know but I genuinely mean it.
Frozen a Walt Disney Production was released recently and I was fortunate enough to go and see it on the big screen. Created by the makers of Tangled and Wreck-It-Ralph I was really looking forward to this.
Frozen is something I think is completely new for a Disney production. It’s the first Disney film ever to teach girls that they don’t need a man to save them. Disney are moving with times it seems. I was touched by the ending, I did not expect it at all, but it was one of the most heart-warming endings to a film I have seen.
The plot was fairly simple, and fun to follow. Queen Elsa of Arendelle, voiced by Idina Menzel, is cursed with magical powers that no one knows about. She faces grave consequences if she does not manage to hide these powers. Also central to the plot is Anna, Queen Elsa’s sister, a very cheerful girl brought to life by the voice of Kristen Bell, who longs to reconnect with her sister but ends up causing tragedy as Elsa’s powers are revealed and her sister flees.
Anna sets out on a dangerous journey to find her sister along the way unravelling mysteries and discovering an old friend and the strongest character in the film, His name is Olaf, a snowman she built with her sister when they were young, you’ll love him too and what Olaf loves are “warm hugs!” He is simply my favourite character in the film. Olaf is dumb, but very kind-hearted and made me laugh throughout the whole film.
Idina Menzel, who plays the voice of Elsa, received an Oscar for ‘Best Original Song’. She sang ‘Let It Go’ in the film, and I myself fell in love with the song. Originally sung by Demi Lovato, it has already sparked nearly 45 million views on YouTube.
Idina told Entertainment Weekly that “This is definitely a dream come true for me. I’m happy for the movie, I’m happy to be a part of the whole thing, and to have a song that really resonates with people is just beyond great”.
I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did. I highly recommend it to everyone; it’s a great family movie with an incredible plot twist.
