Movie Review: Frozen (Disney)

Published on December 07, 2013

I didn't even know that there was a new Disney film coming out so I have to thank my brother for recommending Frozen to us. When I asked him if it was good, he said YES. His exact words were, “Maganda siya pero marami lang kantahan.” But for someone like me who grew up with “tale as old as time”, “shining, shimmering, splendid” and “up where they walk, up where they run”, I knew that I wouldn’t mind all the singing and dancing. I don’t know what happened to this generation. Gusto puro aksiyon! Hahahaha!

So, did I like the movie? YES!!!!!!

I’ll let you know why in a while!

Frozen is a story of two sisters, Elsa and Anna who are princesses of Arendelle. Elsa, the older sister, has a power which went out of control. I’m so tempted to tell you everything, but I don’t want to spoil you!

Although there are some similarities with Tangled, well at least with the plot, Frozen was able to bring out something new to the viewers. Aside from it being a story about the love shared by two sisters, it also conveyed the message of courage and responsibility. Although Disney already did it with Tangled, I love how they once again broke the stereotype of a “Prince Charming”. Disney also added some twists to the usual love stories that we grew up with. And more importantly, Disney was able to give the viewers a new perspective about our typical idea of “true love”.

Being an elder sister, I could very much relate to Elsa. I could feel her pain as she tries to protect Anna. I love Anna’s free spirit and the fact that she didn't give up on her sister. I really wished I had a sister. It would have been nice to watch it with her.

I enjoyed seeing all the magical castles, and as a matter of fact, I found myself saying “Wow!” countless of times. Frozen is also a very funny movie! We usually have an animal as the hero’s sidekick. Although there is one in the movie, what appealed to me more was Olaf who happens to be a snowman! Olaf provided not only the funny moments but also the heartwarming ones.

And oh, I didn’t really mind all the singing and dancing. I was actually clapping my hands like a crazy kid and swaying my head almost the entire movie. Medyo na LSS nga ako sa “Let it go, let it go!” =))

Whether you grew up with Disney or you simply want to spend time with your sister (or your best friend you treat like a sister), do yourself a favor and watch Frozen. It will surprise you. It will make you laugh. It will make you think. It will make you realize that true love does come in different forms. If you have a sister, it will make you feel how lucky you are for having one.

"Some people are worth melting for."

"An act of true love can thaw a frozen heart!"
