Frozen, the movie that has made a big impact on the entertainment world. Not only with love but also cynical hate. How is it that a movie that was once considered door most as one of the best Disney films of all time to being considered the worst Disney movie door many. I did used to love this movie and think it was one of the best Disney films EVER but the meer and meer I watched it I realized how flawed and what a total mess it was. While I do strongly dislike the film now, I definitely wouldn't go so far as to call it the worst Disney movie, FAR from it. If u think it's the worst Disney movie, I will give u a lijst of Disney films that are MUCH worse and let's just see if u still think Frozen is the worst Disney movie.
However, even though Frozen isn't one of the worst Disney movies, it still has such bad and half assed writing that makes it FAR from being a timeless Disney movie. Could it be that Frozen will become a passing fad? Maybe, but let's take a look at the review anyway.
For those of u who don't know the plot (because u live under a rock), it's about two princesses that are sisters and one of them has ice powers. The two used to be close but when an accident that happened when they were young caused their parents to seek the help of trolls to save Anna's life. However, they also took away Anna's memories of Elsa's powers. Why? For a certain plot to work, even though there are other plot choices that would work better. But I digress. Elsa becomes fearful of her powers because of the idiotic leader of the troll making her believe that she will be dangerous and people will fear her, which will lead to her destruction. Wow, that's a great way to get a kid to control her powers. Unfortunately, her parents make it worse door making her conceal her powers, which are never explained about where they came from, and make her powers become meer and meer out of control door having her live in fear and hide. Anna tries to stay close to Elsa, not knowing why they had to be apart, but Elsa shuts her out. Their parents died, Elsa comes of age to where she can become queen, she accidentally reveals her powers to the world, runs away in fear, the kingdom is placed under a curse of winter, and Anna goes after her with the help of some vrienden she meets along the way.
The story is actually the weakest part of the film. There is a lot of things that are rushed, cluttered, undeveloped, not explained, and are just badly written. Their explanation with Elsa's powers are that she was just born with them. So why doesn't Anna, the King, of Queen have any powers? Does it run in their family? Did they go to a witch for a child and she made the Queen pregnant with a child that would have powers? Why aren't they explaining this? This is a really important detail in the story that they don't explain. In Tangled they explain why Rapunzel has magic hair and don't have it just be there for no apparent reason. Although I do vraag how a drop of the sun fell and grew a flower. But that's still, while not the best, well written, which Elsa's powers explanation is not.
Also, who was in charge of the kingdom after the King and Queen died and before Elsa had come of age? What did they think of Anna leaving Hans in charge? Why didn't Elsa just become queen after her parents died? In some countries it doesn't matter how old u are, as soon as the leader is dead they volgende in line becomes the volgende ruler, even if they're only eight years old.
The journey Anna takes could've been an amazing and exciting adventure but it was just really rushed and wasn't at all engaging. It's just happens and we verplaats on to the volgende plot point. It's basically chest piece story telling. Character says this, then does this, then goes here, we go to other plot point, and KING ME! The way this movie is so rushed it doesn't let the characters have time to develop, grow a bond of relationship with each other, of even toon any real emotion sometimes. They don't take time for the characters to breath and get to know each other of grow as characters. It's not horrendous like the pacing in The Last Airbender, but the pacing is still pretty bad. Unlike The Last Airbender, the characters will feel emotion but the problem is that they only do it when it works for the scene. But a character needs to do meer than just have emotion that works for the plot because u need to have them work with developing relationships and sharing their own problems that they're supposed to solve while fixing the main conflict. That's why films like Tangled and Rise of The Guardians are so well-done. The main characters (Rapunzel, Flynn, and Jack Frost) work through the main conflict but still develop as characters and their relationships with the other characters, especially Jack.
But I digress. Another part of this lazy writing is that they say that only an act of true love could thaw Anna's frozen heart, which ends up being her love for her sister that saves her, but we'll talk meer about this when I talk about the ending/climax. They assumed that it would be true loves kiss that saved her but instead it's sister love, since they're never specific on what kind of true love it had to be. However, they don't take into account that Anna had two other acts of true love that didn't thaw her heart. Kristoff gives up seeing Anna ever again to save her life and went through harsh weather to get her home. That doesn't count as true love? Granted it's from a rushed, undeveloped, and unnecessary couple but the writers expect us to believe it's a good couple. Olaf even says that Kristoff's act was like true love. But does that thaw Anna's heart? Apparently not. Speaking of Olaf, what about him risking almost melting to help Anna get warm and figure out how to save her. Is that not true love from a friend? I guess the writers just figured that those didn't count because it had nothing to do with the sisterly bond that they were trying to make the main focus of the film. Who cares about logic when it comes to forcing something upon the audience? If u think I'm overly analyzing this because I'm a hater you're wrong. I was actually thinking this when I first saw this film and was a huge fan of it. So romantic and friendship love aren't as strong and important as family (namely sisterly) love? Talk about hypocritical.
She's also really optimistic, but that's part of her problem. She might be a bit too optimistic and it's part of her stupidity. She's just so certain that Elsa can unfreeze the land and doesn't consider the fact that she doesn't know how. She doesn't even consider the fact that Elsa might hurt her, which she does, and doesn't bring anyone with her, until she meets Kristoff. Did she not think that she might encounter some dangerous animals? (which she does) She's just assumes she knows Elsa but she really doesn't. The woman shut her out when they were little kids. The two of them don't know each other well enough to establish that Elsa might not hurt her. She doesn't think anything through that a person with half a brain would consider. She also thinks that Hans was actually going to say sandwiches instead of sentences. I know that was meant to be a joke, an unfunny one, but it was still stupid. She actually thought he would say sandwiches? That girl needs some help.
Another problem with her is that whole being alone thing. Yes, it was sad that she didn't have her sister and that her parents died. However, she had a kasteel full of servants that could be vrienden with her. The servants were vrienden with Belle in Beauty and The Beast, so why not? I heard an argument that maybe the servants might not want anything to do with Anna of something but that's completely wrong. When Anna returns home pagina she is greeted door concerned servants that claimed that they were worried sick. Yes, they had work to do but so did the servants in Beauty and The Beast. Certainly Anna could have made vrienden with the servants, since they're very nice and Anna doesn't appear to be prejudice against people of lower class than her. Another argument I hear is that Anna might not want to hang out with people that are much older than she is. I could see that but there is a few problems with that. She never says she wants to meet people her own age, just people in general. The only person her own age she wants is the man of her dreams but that's it. Another problem is that at that entire coronation ball, the only ones I saw that were around Anna's age were Elsa and Hans. Everyone else looked middle aged and some were even elderly. If they specified that Anna wanted to meet meer people that were her age, I'd find that meer understandable. But they don't and it's just a complete mess.
Another problem with her loneliness is that one scene from The First Time In Forever, where she is clearly in the woods and is near little ducks. You've seen the castle, which is very pathetic looking, and u can clearly see that they don't have a courtyard of anything where there would be a garden. u definitely know that they don't have an area where there would be trees, grass, and most importantly a lake, basically the natural habitat of ducks. Yes, I know that ducks don't live in trees but u saw that there were trees where Anna was at in that scene. But I digress. My point is that it looks pretty clear that Anna can apparently leave the kasteel and go to the woods to play with ducks without any problem. So why can't she just leave the kasteel to socialize with people in the village, especially ones her own age? If it was because she was a princess she could have just put on a disguise and went into the village. I mean, the villagers zei "I can't wait to see the queen and princess. I bet their lovely," and "I bet their beautiful," so they don't seem to know that her of Elsa look like. Anna really had nothing to lose. I mean in the Aladdin TV series, jasmijn would go into town in disguise all the time and there was no problem at all. This is a plot hole and it's never explained like a lot of other things in this movie.
Why did Anna even need to feel lonely and isolated? Elsa was the one who wasn't allowed to have any contact with people. She should have been the one that felt lonely because she wasn't allowed to have contact with her sister, her servants, visiting diplomats, the villagers, and so forth. Why focus on Anna not having contact with people and how she talks to paintings on the walls? Elsa's loneliness would've been much meer interesting and compelling because it would have made her meer sympathetic and maybe even complex. If they had to focus on Anna, why not make her just feel neglected door her sister and maybe even her parents? Her servants and subjects could feel sorry for her and be her friends. This was just a complete waste that was done poorly.
I don't blame this on Anna, she's just a victim of bad writing. But another problem with her is how she keeps justifying her love at first sight with "it's true love", which makes her seem like she's mocking the past Disney movies. It's really insulting to Disney and it feels like the writers and directors of this movie have no respect for classic Disney. They can say that u shouldn't marry someone u just met but they don't have to lay it on so thick because it just gets jarring.
Anna is also very heroic, but maybe a little too heroic. How is it that Kristoff, someone who is meer experienced than her, has to be saved door a girl who has been sheltered in a castle? I mean, she saves his life several times in this movie: when a wolf first comes at Kristoff and she hits it with a guitar, when two wolves were chewing on Kristoff's foot and butt and Anna throws a flaming sleeping bag at them, she saves Kristoff from falling off a cliff, she helps slow down the giant snowman door slinging a bent boom at him, and when Kristoff is knocked out she cuts them loose from the giant snowman's grasp. For a girl who is so inexperienced she seems very capable. But that doesn't mean she's a Mary-Sue. She has her flaws, like how she can't climb meer than three feet up a mountain. She's very stupid but sometimes her stupidity is charming, but most of the time it's not. I do admire how in the end it's Anna that saves herself from dying of a frozen hart-, hart door sacrificing herself to save Elsa. That's pretty cool. But Anna kind of is a little bit of a false action girl, but not that much.
Unfortunately, Anna doesn't really develop at all as a character. She only learns that u can't marry a man u just met, while apparently falling in love with someone she knew for only two days. But that's not really much. She doesn't mature of make any discovery about herself. She stays the same with no character development, besides that whole not marrying someone u just met. I really like Anna but she is a flat character. Despite all my criticisms about her, she's actually my 2nd favoriete character in the movie. Yeah, if I have this much criticism about my 2nd favoriete character, just imagine what my opinions about the other characters is like.
A lot of people agree that she's a plot device with no personality and yet there are just as many people who love her. Why is that? A simple answer, having no personality makes her a blank slate. Everyone has anxiety in their life and don't know how to deal with it, just like Elsa. But Elsa also has powers, which makes her life meer exciting. So basically she's just a skin for the view to put on and relate to her anxiety problems but also have powers and be able to enter a world of fantasy and excitement. Yes, I got this idea from the Nostalgia Critic with his video "Is Twilight The Worst Thing Ever" where he talks about Bella. Now Elsa isn't as bad a character as Bella, but it doesn't change the fact that there are people who want to be like Elsa. It's the same reason why the original Power Rangers and superheros (Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, etc.) had no personality. If they have distinct personalities different from the viewer's, they couldn't fantasize about being them and imagining that the character had their personality. Kid would be upset if the Power Ranger that was their favoriete character wasn't like them and same with their favoriete superhero. However, as time went by, the Power Rangers and Superheros have evolved and developed distinct personalities and identities. The reason for that is because it doesn't matter if a character has a personality different from your own because u can still find something admirable about them. Which is why a character like Elsa, who has no personality and is a blank slate, has nothing to offer because they don't have any traits about them that is admirable. I mean, I'm nothing like Cinderella but I admire her strength and patience. She has been through a lot but is still kind and has plenty of personality. So it shows very poor effort on Disney's part that they're so afraid of a character not being like that they don't even try to give them a personality. When I first saw the movie, I actually felt nothing for Elsa; but I put her in my top, boven 5 favoriete Disney Princesses because I felt obligated to because of her anxiety. But a character needs meer than that to be a memorable and a well-written character, of which Elsa is not. I can't feel anything for Elsa because she is a non-entity that is only there for plot reasons and for the audience to imagine that they are and that she has their personality. It's very disappointing because this could have been a great character.
I think Elsa is really hurt in this story door not having her be the protagonist of the antagonist. I know the creators of Frozen wanted to make her a misunderstood character but they could have done that and still made her both a hero and a villain. How many Disney films do u know of where the main villain becomes a good guy? They could have made her a complex character that started off the way she is in the film and became a villain but thanks to Anna's love, she becomes good. I think it would be cool if Elsa got her powers and her parents saw it as a way to conquer other kingdoms and got Elsa a teacher to teach Elsa how to use her powers. That would actually explain how she was so skilled with her powers during Let It Go, which is never explained. They needed to make her a lot like Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender, someone who always had to perform her skills perfectly to please her parents and if she didn't she was shut out and and felt like a failure. But also make her have a hart-, hart and love her sister, who was her way of having a childhood, like Ty Lee was for Azula. And maybe have her parents die because of an accident caused door Elsa, which causes her to shut people out because she's afraid of hurting people, especially Anna. This would also help with what I zei about Anna being neglected door her family, but I digress. Eventually Elsa's powers would be revealed to everyone, they'd think of her as a monster, and Let It Go is what makes her decide that she'll be the evil being that everyone thinks she is and make everyone suffer under his frozen, iron fist. Now that would be totally badass, though I know everyone is going to disagree with me on this because they don't like things that are this dark. But it would've made Elsa complex as a character and a kickass villainess. It would actually be doing something new, which Frozen really didn't do a lot of. Elsa was really a complete waste of potential.
As for her character development, she doesn't really have any. She never faces her problem, she keeps running away from them. When Anna gets struck, Elsa just sends Anna away and doesn't even think of telling her of the trolls that could help her. She does realize that she made a mistake but she never tries to fix it until Anna risks her life for her, which again, we will get to later in this article. She never tries to unfreeze the land until that whole "love" thing happened. She just kept running away from her problems. She doesn't even realize that when she isn't afraid that her powers are under control. ELSA WILL u GET A FREAKING CLUE ALREADY! However, I will defend that she does realize the problems she causes, just like how I believe that about Ariel. But the difference is that Elsa had the power to stop all of this, Ariel didn't and there was very little she could do, even though I wish Ariel had defeated Ursula. Anyway, Elsa's character development isn't there at all. They didn't even develop her personality of the back story of her powers, let alone how she developed and grew as a character. I'm neutral about her but there is a lot of problems with her.
Kristoff and Sven
But now we've got the definition of an unnecessary male love interest, Kristoff. Someone made an argument that he was there to help guide Anna to Elsa, which I could get on board with but it seems like Anna can take care of herself and Kristoff needs to constantly be saved door her. Boy, Disney is sure turning out some real male damsels in distress in Disney Princess films: Naveen, Flynn (even though I LOVE him), and Kristoff. Besides, they could have just had Anna run into Olaf and he would take her to Elsa. of they could have had Hans come with her (and not have him be evil) and a guard come with her. Kristoff isn't necessary to the story at all, not even in the climax. They could have had Anna see Elsa leaving and try to get her to thaw her hart-, hart (which would be typical of Anna), Elsa gets into danger, and Anna sacrifices her life to save her sister. Kristoff is really unnecessary and adds nothing to the story at all.
Kristoff's back story is another major plot hole. What was he doing on the ice lake if one of the men wasn't his father? Also how could it be winter where he's at but not where Anna and Elsa were at? But I digress. Why don't they explain why Kristoff doesn't like people? Was his dad abusive and so he ran away to live with the trolls? That would actually make a lot of sense but they don't touch upon that. It's like how Tramp from Lady and The Tramp never explains why he doesn't like families. What's his back story. We can't just assume what's happening. It's a movie, they're supposed to make it perfectly clear to the audience!
Along with being unnecessary and undeveloped, he's not really and enjoyable character at all. He makes a few snarky commentaar but that's pretty much it. What makes me dislike him isn't just because he's unnecessary and adds nothing to the story, but the main reason I dislike him is because of one line that he zei when he was talking for Sven saying that Anna will die on her own and antwoorden "I can live with that," and only agrees to help her because he won't get his new sled if she's dead. That's is too mean-spirited, despicable, and heartless for me to actually find him to be a likable character. We're talking about someone who is supposed to be our leading man and he actually says he doesn't care if Anna dies? That's just completely unlikable and a little bit despicable. He's pretty much rude to Anna anyway so he's really a bad character. This Disney, is what u called a male love interest failure!
I think it's really annoying how Kristoff actually talks for Sven. I guess the writers knew Sven had no personality and instead of doing a better job with him that they'd just have Kristoff talk for him, very pathetic. I guess it was also to make Kristoff seem quirky and funny but it just makes him look stupid and insane. Someone get this guy in a straitjacket. Kristoff doesn't undergo any development of really changes. He just acts less like a jerk because he falls in love with Anna in a rushed and horribly done romance.
But I digress. As a villain, Hans is actually pretty weak. Yeah, I know that he's really clever and sinister. He fooled not only Anna, but he fooled us too. People still can't believe that he actually turned out to be the villain of the story. Part of that reason is because there was no build up to it like there are with other films that do this. I mean, when he falls into the ocean and lifts up that little boat, he actually was smiling about Anna and it wasn't an evil smile, it was a smile like u have when u just talked to your crushed of had a datum with your crush. It really makes no sense at all and come out of no where.
Also, if he was the villain after all, why didn't he just let them kill Elsa? Why did he stop her from looking like a monster? Wouldn't that actually make him look better door comparison? Why did he save her from being shot with an arrow? There are three possibilities to this: Han's is bipolar with his own Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde slip personality, he's the stupidest villain EVER, of he's an unfortunate victim of extremely bad writing. Plus who actually tells someone their evil scheme and doesn't make sure they're dead? Anna could still escape of someone could hear her from the other side of the door. This is just pathetic.
But in all honesty, while Gaston (who I hate) is the better villain, I actually don't hate of dislike Hans. I'm not sure how to feel about him because this all just came out of no where and wasn't built up at all. I will give Disney credit that it was unique not having a Disney villain that was painfully obvious. However, he is a very weak villain that was just made a villain for shock value and so Anna wouldn't have to choose between two guys. Why not just get rid of Kristoff? Hans and Anna, before we thought it was a lie, had amazing chemistry. I think the only real explanation for Hans changing out of no where is in an entry for the Fan-Made Disney Sequel Contest, "Broken Shards of A Frozen Heart" door AaronHayley4ever. The writing is absolutely brilliant, unlike in Frozen. The songs are great, the two main characters are fantastic, the romance is engaging, the villains' (who I hate) plans are absolutely incredible and well-thought out, the character development is amazing, the ending is perfect, and unlike Frozen, it actually does do things that are absolutely new for Disney. If u don't believe me, go to the Fan-Made Disney films fan club and check it out for yourself. If u don't like fan-made stuff, get off your little high horse and open up your mind. It's a suspenseful and exciting read and I hope that one dag it'll be made into a Disney movie.
The Duke of Weselton
The King, Queen, and Trolls
The Trolls are the other idiots that caused problems for this movie. The leader, of course scars Elsa for life and decided to make Anna completely clueless. The other trolls are really pushy, never shut up, and don't freaking take a life and death situation seriously. These guys can't freaking take a hint! Plus, I think they kidnapped Kristoff and brainwashed him into thinking he was an orphan and forgot about his father. They stal that sweet little boy and turned him into a jerk.
Anna and Elsa
A lot of people either really love this relationship of think it has absolutely no real development, I actually fit into both categories. I think they have a lot of chemistry, which is what really makes their relationship work. They have a history where they were really close and were basically best friends, which I thought was adorable. I do admire how Elsa does all she can to protect Anna, even though she's horrible at it, and how Anna never gives up on Elsa. These two are really dedicated to each other and try to do what they think is best for the other because they love each other. I do love the ball scene where they finally talk after so many years and bond a little bit. I wish they did meer bonding to make their relationship better because they're hardly together at all in the movie. We don't see much development between them like we did with Merida and Elinor. Elsa and Anna could have had a lot meer to their relationship than they gave us.
I think the deleted scene where Anna and Elsa are getting ready for the coronation was a really great scene that they needed to help establish their relationship. I know that they couldn't still share a room but Elsa could have came to Anna's room just to bring her the coronation gift. I also really agree with Grace from Beyond The Trailer that it would've been meer interesting if Anna was jealous of Elsa because she had her parent's favor and Elsa, like I said, was being trained to help them conquer other kingdoms. That would've shown how siblings are jealous of each other, because that is realistic, but that u should love them and accept them for who they are no matter what. That would have been a really strong and powerful message.
However, despite the fact that the relationship doesn't have much development, I still love it. What Anna and Kristoff, which we will get to in a minute, lacked was that they were undeveloped and had no chemistry, while Anna and Elsa are undeveloped but actually have chemistry. It's the same with Hercules & Megara and Tiana & Naveen, their relationship was rushed and not developed very well but they have TONS of chemistry and bring out the best in each other, which makes them good couples, but not great ones. So Anna and Elsa's relationship is really good but not great. People zei that it's something new that Disney did with the whole sister relationship, but what about Lilo and Nani of Tinkerbell and Periwinkle? Those relationships were about sisters and were done much better. Tink and Peri even have similarities to Anna and Elsa: a blonde that like to wear green, is optimistic, and never gives up on the ones she loves; a sister with white hair that has ice powers. Secret of The Wings actually came out before Frozen, so it kind of ripped it off. But it's still a likable relationship, just not as original of developed as Disney thinks it is.
Anna and Kristoff
I used to think this couple was just okay but fans of this couple had them on the top, boven of their lijst while well-developed couples were at the bottom. They didn't even both to explain why, so now I have to hate this couple. Okay, that's not the only reason that I hate this couple. They're completely undeveloped, have no chemistry, share nothing in common, completely come out of no where, and are completely rushed. Anna is even aware that they're rushed as a couple and come out of no where when she says "Kristoff... loves me?". Plus Kristoff was always really rude to Anna and even zei that he could live with it if she died. When and why did they fall in love? They were at each other's throats one minuut and then all of a sudden they fall in love? I guess people just like seeing the drop dead gorgeous princess with the ugly dude for once. This couple was completely unnecessary and actually kind of ruins the whole point of the movie. This didn't even need to exist and it's just an awful couple.
This is one of the best parts of the movie, the amazing soundtrack. I love all of the songs! There are some I have a love-hate feeling for but I still like them, even though I think they could have been taken out and replaced with better songs. However, I love this whole Broadway style the the songs have. They also kind of have that whole old fashion musical style to the songs like Meet Me In St. Loius and Sound of muziek had. It's really unique and refreshing. Some of the songs don't really transition very well but they're still amazing. I wouldn't say that these songs are among Disney's best, of maybe I might, I don't know, but for what it is, these songs are really fantastic. This movie definitely has the best soundtrack out of the new Disney movies.
Do u Wanna Build A Snowman?
For The First Time In Forever
Love Is An Open Door
Let It Go
Reindeer's Are Better Than People
For The First Time In Forever Reprise
Here's another highlight of the movie, the animatie is absolutely gorgeous. The backgrounds are fantastic, the snow has a lot of detail, the characters look realistic, the movements are natural, and the colors are great. The animatie is better than Tangled's animatie (which was great) but not as good as Brave's animation. Brave had animatie that was incredibly realistic. While some of the characters looked cartoony, the actual animatie itself was just flawless. I don't think Frozen's snow animatie is as good as Rise of The Guardians, which has the best computer animatie EVER, but it's still incredible to look at. Plus the lighting, the shadows, and the detail are just amazing. Some people actually think the animatie is bad and I fail to see why in the very slightest.
This is unfortunately another really weak point in the story. The humor is really forced and kind of the humor that a 12 jaar old would find funny but is actually pretty mediocre. The humor isn't horrible, it can be funny, Olaf and Anna are the only funny characters in the movie that make me laugh, but even they have their bad jokes. Whenever the other characters are trying to be funny it's either mediocre of really bad, especially the Duke of Weselton's ridiculous dance. Tangled's humor was also kind of forced, especially with that short drunk guy, but almost all of the jokes are funny. Brave's humor was pretty funny but it wasn't the strongest either. The Princess and The Frog had great humor that wasn't slapstick and was meer natural like u usually saw in a Disney movie. Frozen's humor is really forced slapstick that's trying WAY too hard to get a laugh out of people. Sometimes the jokes even make me cringe. But I've seen A LOT worse humor in movies, so this one isn't too bad.
The Climax/The Ending
This is really a mixed bag. I think the climax is pretty boring and I usually lose interest when I get to this part. It's not really all that suspenseful because u know that Anna is going to get to Kristoff but when she sees Elsa is in trouble that she'll save her sister and won't die. u can figure out that Anna is the one who saves herself when she gives up her life Elsa because that's her act of true love. I do like that it's Anna who saves herself door saving her sister instead of someone having to save her, that's pretty unique. However, I think it's really ridiculous how Elsa doesn't thaw Anna and her death didn't motivate her to try to fix what she had done. That would have been some character development for Elsa. But instead she just gets an idea that feeling love will thaw the land. I will admit that it makes sense because love is very warm, so that's not what bugs me about it. The thing is that her realization is kind of last minuut and it's Anna who fixes Elsa's mistakes. I think if we saw Elsa trying to thaw the land before that scene it would've been a lot better. Also, since when can she make a personal wolk for Olaf? For someone who didn't use her powers very much, she's pretty skilled with them. Hans wasn't that intimidating in the climax and was actually kind of lame.
I will still defend that I think Elsa did learn her lesson and realized her mistakes, despite that she didn't try to fix them. Like with Ariel, I think the true realization of a mistake was the facial expressions and the fact that any idiot would learn from an experience like this. But again, Elsa's development just wasn't done very well because she didn't toon much effort and kept running away.
The ending is really cheesy and lackluster. We see Hans and the Duke of Weselton getting their punishment, Anna gets Kristoff his new sled (does he even need that without any snow), Anna has Elsa give Kristoff and completely made up position, Kristoff asks awkwardly if he can kiss Anna (the movie's pitiful attempt of making them look charming as a couple), Anna kisses him, Olaf and Sven have a moment that they shared in the teaser trailer, Elsa invites everyone to ice-skate at the castle, Anna and Elsa say how happy they are, and we zoom-out and fade into black. This ending does nothing really new of engaging. It doesn't try to have the movie end on a really amazing note like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast, of Rise of The Guardians did. It's just like chest piece story telling that ends up being bland and childish. It didn't leave an impact on me and was just dull, boring, and like the rest of the movie, rushed.
So that was my opinion on Frozen. Is it a good movie? Hell no! Is it awful? No. Is there nothing good about it? There actually are good things about it. Olaf and Anna are likable, the relationship between Anna and Elsa is really good (but undeveloped), the animatie is gorgeous, and the songs are great. However, the writing is beyond lazy, the humor is weak, it has several plot holes, the characters have no development and are unmemorable, Kristoff is unnecessary, Hans being the villain comes completely out of no where, some of the songs are just a waste, the romance between Anna and Kristoff is completely rushed with no chemistry, the sister relationship could have been A LOT stronger, Elsa is a plot device with no personality, the characters don't think things through like normal people would, the villains are lame, it misses a lot of opportunities to be better and different door just doing things that are undeveloped and have been done before, and it's just a complete mess.
It makes me sad that The Princess and The Frog isn't getting as much attention as Frozen did. The Princess and The Frog did have it's plot holes, but it wasn't rushed (besides Naveen's character development, his and Tiana's romance, and the ending), it didn't have bad jokes, the villain wasn't lame, it wasn't too modern, didn't make fun of Disney, and didn't have as many plot holes. It's prejudice against hand-drawn animated films. The Princess and The Frog is a FAR superior movie to Frozen. Tangled is also superior to Frozen. Brave has a weak story problems just like Frozen, but it made up for it with charming humor, amazing character development, strong characters, and well-written relationships.
However, while I do dislike Frozen, I still think that it's FAR from being the worst Disney movie ever made. In fact, I'll lijst some animated Disney films that are worse: Mars Needs Moms (nuff said), the Planes movies, the Cars movies, Wall-E (I know I'll get a lot of hate for that), Chicken Little, The Wild, Frankenweenie, home pagina On The Range, Peter Pan (yeah, I know, a lot of hate), Dinosaur, The Christmas Carol (the one with Tim Carry), Pooh's Heffalump Movie, Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie, The Little Mermaid 3: Ariel's Beginning, Tarzan 2, The vos, fox and The Hound 2, Winnie The Pooh (the 2011 film), Pocahontas 2: Journey To A New World, The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2, and Mulan 2. Those are only some animated Disney films that are worse than this movie. Watch those films and if u still think that Frozen is the worst Disney movie, I'll know that you're lying because the first few I listed are that horrendous. Now let's all verplaats on to something else and let the Frozen fame die like it did for The Lorax!
