What Do Critics Say About Frozen II?
Frozen II is rated 77% on Rotten Tomatoes, 7.3 out of 10 by IMDb and 4 out of 5 by Common Sense Media.
Here take a look at what critics have to say about the movies:
The Guardian said,
“It’s nice to see these figures again, but I couldn’t help feeling that there is something a bit underpowered and contrived about the storyline in ‘Frozen II’: a matter of jeopardy synthetically created and artificially resolved, obstacles set in place and then surmounted, characters separated and reunited, bad stuff apparently happening and then unhappening. At times, ‘Frozen II’ almost felt like an extended bonus featurette that could have gone with the Blu-ray edition of the first film.”
Another site, Entertainment Weekly stated,
“‘Frozen 2’ makes a valiant effort to live up to its predecessor, but can’t escape its shadow. Over the course of the movie, multiple characters openly wonder if they’re done adventuring yet. In our zeitgeist of maximized intellectual property, the answer is ‘probably not,’ but at least this fictional world isn’t afraid of a little change here and there.”
Well, reviewing several critics, the movie’s reviews are quite divided.
