The movie is good. But it ain’t that good. Certainly not up to the level of greatness that people and critics have talked it up to. The plot, for one, is basically a retread of Captain America: The First Avenger. The only difference is that Diana Prince didn’t need to be genetically re-engineered and manipulated.
The 53rd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, and inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen, Frozen is a brilliant, playful, thoroughly enjoyable family flick that turns on its head the traditional princess-centric fairy tale that we’ve all come to know over the years.
Just like Peter Parker’s kindhearted Aunt May, the second installment in the Spider-Man franchise reboot seems to be going through a messy, aimless midlife crisis, not sure what it’s supposed to do, and how it’s supposed to propel its narrative in a consistent and believable manner.
Essentially, the movie is both a romance and self-help text for teenage girls, just like so many of the young adult novels flooding the market.
