The film is visually awesome. There is no denying that. I am not exactly enamored of a winter wonderland since I live in one for a decent portion of the year. Even so, the world of Frozen is breathtaking. The story is cute, but not exactly revolutionary - fairly predictable and everyone gets what they deserve. One expects the franchise will be with us for a while. There's already a stage musical in the works. And ABC's Once Upon a Time series is set to make use of the characters in its upcoming season. ABC, of course, is owned by Disney.
I will confess that I am not a big fan of the songs - nearly all in the current wailing Broadway delivery for which I do not care. There are a couple of choral arrangements, however, that are more my speed. I enjoyed the orchestral score, too, composed by Christophe Beck.
Overall, good movie. We'll definitely be watching it again sometime. I'm not prepared to call it great but I do understand the fuss.
