《冰雪奇缘》 Movie Review!
Hi everyone! I stumbled upon the 迪士尼 Princess page while I was 阅读 movie reviews for Frozen. I absolutely 爱情 迪士尼 and enjoyed 阅读 the 文章 发布 由 other members, and I wanted to write my opinion on how 《冰雪奇缘》 compares to the other 迪士尼 Princess films, its faults, and where it succeeds.
I broke the review up into 3 sections: Music, Story & Characters. Music
Unfortunately, like Princess and the Frog, I believe 《冰雪奇缘》 only really had one stand out song (“Let it Go”), the rest weren’t particularly enjoyable 或者 memorable. “In Summer” and “Fixer Upper” were like “Under the Sea” 或者 “Be Our Guest” in the way that they didn’t do much to advance the plot. The difference is that the latter songs stand the test of time, while the 《冰雪奇缘》 songs just seemed like filler. I found “First time in forever” a lyrically weak song (“The window is open, so is that door!”) where she is just narrating pointless things (although it was humorous latter on)., “Love is an open door” (the song between the 爱情 interests) doesn’t compare with songs like “Whole New World” 或者 “I See the Light” but I did find it catchy and enjoyable and I loved the Princes’ voice. Of the newer films (Tangled, Princess and the Frog, and Frozen), I think 魔发奇缘 had the best songs overall, but 《冰雪奇缘》 had the single best song of all of them with “Let It Go”. Idina Menzel has such a unique and powerful voice that is very distinct and different from all the other 迪士尼 princesses which is something I really appreciate. I believe “Let It Go” is emotionally powerful and possibly the best Princess song since “Part of Your World”. Characters
While I liked the characters, it was pretty clear that 迪士尼 was trying to replicate the success of 魔发奇缘 由 borrowing archetypes. Kristoff
, the mountain man, was unlike anyone Anna had met before. He didn’t seem to care much for her 或者 what anyone thought of him. He didn’t have any 老友记 and was an orphan. He found himself obligated to go on a journey with Anna, and while at first he couldn’t care less about her and wanted to get rid of her, he eventually grew to 爱情 her. The problem is that story has been done before and done better, in Tangled. Anna
herself resembled Rapunzel in many ways. From being trapped in her 城堡 and longing to leave, to her innocence and the way she acts, to her looks – she was 更多 similar to Rapunzel then she was to her sister, Elsa. Anna was incredible immature at the beginning of the film – she falls in 爱情 quickly, and even leaves someone she just met in charge of the 城堡 – but I do not hold this against her, because she showed incredible character growth over the film. It was almost as if she was an old fashioned 迪士尼 princess making the transition into a new aged one. Elsa
in my opinion is the strongest, most original character in 《冰雪奇缘》 and one of my 最喜爱的 princesses. The powers Elsa has could easily corrupt her, but they don’t, because of her strong moral character. She obeys her parents (unlike most 迪士尼 princesses) and conceals them from everyone, including Anna, and is willing to live a life alone and isolated just so she cannot hurt anyone. She makes the hard choice, and chooses to hurt herself before she hurts others. She is called a monster and ridiculed, and unlike any other princess, she does not have a prince, which I think is very refreshing and goes to 显示 that 你 don’t need to get a guy to have a happy ending. Elsa’s happy ending is family and overcoming her disability, and as a Queen, she goes on to rule the Kingdom. Elsa is an incredibly strong character and definitely one of the better role 模特 for young girls. Olaf
is the comic relief and does a surprisingly good job! I thought he was going to be somewhat annoying from the trailers, but he was a very funny, lovable character who actually had most of the laughs in the film. Lastly, the villain
. Without giving away anything, I found the villain in the story to be weak and underdeveloped, probably the most forgettable of any of the villains in the 迪士尼 Princess films, although it does somewhat make sense as Elsa’s powers act as an obstacle themselves.
Overall, I loved Elsa, and while I did like the other characters as well, they couldn’t help but feel recycled 或者 forgettable. Story/Themes
《冰雪奇缘》 is a nice mixture of action, adventure, humor and song, and although it slows a bit in parts, it is still very enjoyable. 《冰雪奇缘》 has many of the classic 迪士尼 moral’s, like that it’s important to be true to yourself, anyone can be a hero, and not to judge people 由 appearances. The ideal central to many 迪士尼 movies, that 爱情 conquers all, is present in Frozen, but it is portrayed in a refreshingly original way. The theme of the struggle between intimacy and isolation is explored beautifully through Elsa and Kristoff’s stories. It is hard to get to in depth with themes and story without giving things away, so I will just say that I did find it enjoyable. While not my 最喜爱的 迪士尼 Princess film, it is certainly not my least favorite, and I believe it will stand up fairly well to repeat viewings. The 动画片 and 3D, while not as sentimental and warm as 2D, was absolutely beautiful. 你 could watch this movie will the sound off and still enjoy it.
In conclusion, 《冰雪奇缘》 was a great film and didn’t disappoint – it’s simply not as great as others in the 大炮, 加农炮 and has a few faults, mainly due to 迪士尼 borrowing elements from 魔发奇缘 and attempting to recreate its success. I may make a direct comparison 文章 between 魔发奇缘 and 《冰雪奇缘》 latter, if you’d be interested in 阅读 that 或者 something else, let me know! I just joined 潮流粉丝俱乐部 and am looking 前锋, 期待 to 写作 and 阅读 更多 articles!! Feel free to share your opinion (good 或者 bad) on this one below!
