Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck direct Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell and Josh Gadd in this animated sequel to the Ice Queen sisterhood adventure comedy.
Fails to recapture the magic and, going by how restless the theatre full of kids were in our showing, the joy. It is actually quite galling in its OK-ishness. Technically the same stellar effort has been put in, what is up there on screen looks and sounds wonderful. There’s just no sense of urgency, care or essentiality to the cash-in. Fan service aside, …Kristoff and Sven get a power ballad, everyone from the original gets a cameo… the banger Into the Unknown is the only artistic reason for this to exist.
