Consensus: Beautifully animated, smartly written, and stocked with singalong songs, Frozen adds another worthy entry to the Disney canon.

Disney has another hit in its repertoire with this heartfelt story of sisterly love and one of the few films released in 3-D this year that splendidly incorporates the technology into the plot line.

Extravagant care is taken with minutiae, and the directors, Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, whistle through the first twenty minutes of the plot with a controlled giddiness that would leave many live-action adventures staggering in their tracks.

If you thought there was only so much to be done with ice and snow as visual fields, think again along the lines of prismatic crystals, epic storms and fantastical structures built on water's gift for freezing itself into see-through art.

While it won't go down as one of Disney's greatest animations, Frozen has enough charm and silliness-a word I use complimentary-to make it a must-see for families.

Frozen reminds you how many animated films rely more on inside jokes. It's modern without being hip, earnest with being sappy.

Frozen' has both showtunes and darkness, but most satisfying is a formula-defying finale that successfully subverts the fairytale status quo.

'Frozen' feels like it's breaking new ground in telling a story where the women are actually in control, and where the clichés of their narratives are turned inside out, almost as a sly commentary on what has come before.

A visually stunning Disney animation with wonderful songs and a story that boldly subverts the conventions of fairy tales by having no women in need of princes… More

Sorry -- I don't get the popularity of this film. While the animation was exceptional, all the songs but one were pedestrian and unmemorable. The story… More

It took me a while to get into this one and whilst the story is no masterpiece, musicals rarely are and it's actually a damned fine musical. It ain't… More

If its final scene had ended with one more musical reprise and not with such a typical fade-out conclusion, 'Frozen' would've cemented its place… More

Frozen is a special movie because it manages to be great despite not being a gut-buster or a tear-jerker. The plot is interesting, with some funny moments and… More
