Frozen Movie Review
Time: 1hr 41min
Sorry I haven't posted in a while but between work and studying...plus with the crappy internet service I get...I haven't had time to post much. So let me say that I fell in love with the music a few days before I'd even seen the movie, and Let It Go is still my favorite song by far. My parents loved this movie too because it wasn't the classical princess searching for true love. That's something right! Oh and if you don't want spoilers I recommend that you do not read this!
Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell) are princesses left all on their own after their parents were lost at sea. The sisters (once close) were pulled apart by Elsa's fear. Anna doesn't know why Elsa won't talk to her anymore because her memory was changed in order to save her life. See Elsa can control snow and ice and she accidentally struck Anna in the head with her magic.
Now the gates to the castle are opening for the first time in years for Elsa's coronation as queen and Anna couldn't be happier to be free for a little while. She hopes to find true love and meets a handsome and somewhat clumsy Hans (Santino Fontana) who steals her heart. But when Elsa won't give them her blessing Anna fights with her and Elsa's powers are revealed to the whole town when the kingdom is frozen in an eternal winter. Elsa runs into the mountains where she is determined to stay so as to prevent any further harm.
Anna sets out on a journey to find her sister and end the winter but needs the help of Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer Sven. They make it up the mountain with a lot of luck but they meet Olaf (Josh Gad) on the way. Olaf is the snowman the two princesses made when they were smaller. Once they make it to Elsa's ice palace Anna goes in alone but is struck in the heart by Elsa's magic. With Elsa not realizing what she had done she throws them out and Kristoff takes Anna to the trolls for help saving her life.
Unable to do anything for her Kristoff has to get Anna back to Hans, her true love. He leaves her at the castle and sets off but what he doesn't know is that Hans had tricked her and instead of being in love with her Hans was really just after the throne. Leaving her to die Hans sets off to kill the only thing between him and the throne, Elsa. He had her in a prison but she escaped in another storm.
Anna sets out to find Kristoff her real true love but finds Hans about to kill the crying Elsa who thought Anna was dead.
Who does she choose to save? Herself? Or Elsa? Will the kingdom be saved from the endless winter?
I loved this movie and though it is a cartoon for kids I am still a kid at heart so I will continue to watch cartoons. I hope you feel the same.
