Reviews: Frozen II (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Rick Aragon @
    • Excerpt: Frozen II is a pointless sequel to the massive Frozen, a needless venture Into the Unknown. Even that one could forgive if there were any good songs in it.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: If “Frozen” yawed toward fairy tale romance threatened by magic, its sequel rights the ship with magic bringing everyone back down to earth.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: A touch messier than the simple charms of the original, but the love for the characters is still there, and it’s still just as joyous and with an added sense of adventure.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: THis sequel is best when it isn’t trying to top the first film, but offers something totally different. Kristoff’s 80s influenced “Lost in the Woods” is the greatest power pop ballad that REO Speedwagon never sang.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: There’s magic here, and elemental spirits, but no magic and nothing elemental, metaphorically speaking. Rote and smaller than its predecessor. Even the songs are bland and forgettable.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: An enchanted forest takes care of everyone’s arc of discovery and self-actualization, but this sequel outshines the original – even though there is no “Let It Go” follow-on.
  • [New] | Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
  • Nell Minow @ rogerebert.com
    • Excerpt: Frozen II is funny, exciting, sad, romantic, and silly.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: The whole is far from perfect, but the good does outweigh the bad like its predecessor. [And] human compassion reigns supreme.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Despite having a collection of new ideas, songs, and terrific animation, I couldn’t let go of the story issues holding this film back from greater success.
  • Matt Oakes @
    • Excerpt: The sure-to-be-popular Disney sequel checks pretty much all the boxes a good sequel should, going in a darker (though still highly risk-averse) direction in a follow-up that cannot really live up to its predecessor.
