So, I watched the movie, and my secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan opinion is that it is good........not great. I say this because while the characters are nice, and the songs, the story needs some work. There are some plotholes that are jarring, and the fact that most of this takes place in 24 hours is a bit problematic for me. Even the character development and the relationship building could have been better. Characters
So my secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan consensus of the characters are that while they are organic for the most part, the development between the relationships of the characters and the characters themselves are too rushed (but that is because the story is WAY too simple).I feel it is right to start with Anna.
While she is very....very.....very unoriginal, and she has nothing new personality wise over the other princesses, she feels organic. She is not the "I want adventure in the great wide somewhere, I want it lebih than I could tell" type of girl, but she is fearless, and adventurous, free-spirited, curious, and has the exact same traits that over half of the franchise has. but the pints they do focus on makes her stand out in a different way; she is not classy atau elegant. She says things before thinking through them, we acts before she thinks it through, and she is awkward. Her naivete is written as a flaw, unlike Rapunzel (who I think is inorganic and pretty close to a Mary-Sue). He wanting to be close to Elsa is cute and understandable, but they were close when she was 4, and she is 18, so wouldn't she remember lebih of Elsa shutting her and being cold to her? It is not common to remember many things from when anda are 4 years old. She does grow from her naivete about love, and is actually proactive. Her insecurity about not being noticed is there, but is barely focused upon, and I think it would make her a stronger character if ti was (most princesses are not insecure).
Elsa is honestly a mixed bag for me. She struggles with being herself because she is very cautious, elegant, and has to remain closeted for the safety of others. Her entire arc is to learn to embrace from herself and to grow out of her fear (as it would be her downfall if she does not change). I guess why makes her mixed instead of positive for me is that she is barely in the film. There is her coronation, her making her castle, her striking Anna, getting captured, and being saved; this kind of makes her come off as a plot device. She is not adventurous in the slightest (thank The Lord for that), she is a bit cold, serious, classy, and clearly loves her sister which is shown in her coronation scene (she compliments her and seems to have a good time with her, and in For the First Time in Forever Reprise where she is telling her to live her life and such). There is also the complaint of her being inconsistent, and I can see why people say that; she is an emotional roller-coaster. She does develop as a character, but her lack of screentime and her execution kind of puts her down for me.
Kristoff is okay I guess. He is a loner, having trust issues (though it is never known WHY he has trust issues), and he is an ice man, since it is one of the only things he knows how to do. He has the company of a reindeer named Sven who he talks over, and he was raised with the Trolls apparently. His backstory does have quite a few holes (what was his relationship with the older ice men as to why he was following them and they never notice him atau give him any attention). Anyways, he ends up stuck with Anna since he wants the snow to stop so his business can function, and she is the sister of the Snow Queen. Around this point on the film, he is like Flynn (trying to be funny, thinking of the girl as a nuisance) but when he starts to like Anna, anda KNOW he likes her (which is not the case for her). After Elsa strikes her with ice, he takes her to Hans to cure her, since he loves her and will sacrifice her to make her better. He is convinced to come back and he does. He has no part in the climax, but him and Anna end up together. He is pretty cool, but it is not shocking as to why he is the tritagonist instead of the deuteragonist.
Hans is an interesting villain. He is very charismatic (to come off as good) and uses his charm to get a head. While he is smart, a lot of the things that goes his way is lebih out of luck, like Anna handing him the kingdom, Elsa falling leading them to capture her, Anna being struck leading her to be weak. His suffering and being shut out as a child only made him extremely dark, but we don't see to much of his dark was because things happen in his favour without him doing anything. If we were hinted about this somehow before he reveals himself to Anna, than it would have made him a better character and villain. It was like he was out in just so they can say there is a villain causing havoc in the movie (though he was added in later in development).
He is one of the least annoying sidekicks in the canon, even less so than Genie and Mrs.Potts. Though he is useless, he is entertaining. His dream to experience summer (and he had this for a whole) though existed for about 12 hours up to that point. Nothing else to say. Plot
So the plot of this movie is thin, but has issues with it. So a 4 tahun old Anna and a 7 tahun old Elsa sneak ou of their room to create a Snow Wonderland in one of the empty rooms. Anna ends up getting struck oleh ice on her head, causing her parents to take her to the Trolls to heal Anna and to remove her memories of Elsa's magic and their good moments (which mostly involved Elsa's ice powers). Elsa is told to stay away from Anna and to conceal her powers from then on. How was Elsa born with the powers, but her parents atau Anna have nothing similar of the sort? At least they berkata she was born with it, and the royals have some sort of connection to the Trolls; oh yeah, Kristoff witnessed it. His backstory has a bunch of holes and a bunch of tidak terjawab questions.
So the parents also have the kastil, castle walls closed and the girls locked in their rooms (this also pertanyaan why they did not just tell Anna. Did they get an education? Well it seems to not matter, since Anna wanders around the castle). This leads to Do anda Want to Build a Snowman, which is a good song that explains their relationship ship getting lebih and lebih explained. Their parents died during the song. So 4 years after the death of their parents, the kastil, castle gates are finally being opened for Elsa coronation, and then For the First Time in Forever is sung, and it is the detik best song of the movie, explaining both girls very well. At the end of the song, Anna meets Hans (who she seems sexually attracted to). The two are having fun at the coronation, and they sing the painful song of cinta Is An Open Door. The lyrics are pretty shallow, and the pp sound is not working (I guess it is supposed to be taken as a joke).
So he proposes to her, and she automatically says yes, thinking anda should follow your jantung always. She asks for Elsa's hand in marriage, and she refused, since she just met Hans that day. She does not have the best feeling about him. So they get into a tiff about her shutting Anna out, and she pulls Elsa's glove, causing her to Let it Go. Everyone sees her as a monster, and she runs off. Anna decides to make Hans the ruler until she comes back from getting Elsa. WHAT. First off, she does not have the power to decide who rules, and what about the person who was ruling for the past 4 years? And wouldn't the kingdom have a problem with this declaration? This is an issue.
So after Elsa makes her castle, Anna ends up being stuck with Kristoff, who is struggling since he cannot sell his ice. She convinces him to let her stay with him so she can stop the storm and so he can make a living. They end up meeting Olaf, who has only been alive for a few hours. Ignoring the fact that he did not have the time to know much, he sings In Summer, which is a pretty good song. Anna recognizes him as a childhood memory and link him to Elsa after hearing his name and asks him to take them to where she is, and they agree.
So they go to the castle, and they reunite, which is practically covered up oleh For the First Time in Forever Reprise, with Anna saying that she does not need to be afraid, and Elsa saying that Anna needs to live her life, and accidentally strikes her jantung with ice. She freaks out and then has them thrown out of her castle. She is later captured oleh Hans and his men.
So Kristoff decides to take them to the Trolls, thinking that they am fix Anna, who is slowly turning ice white. Kristoff is attracted to her at this point, and it is clear that he has feelings for her (especially when he sees her in that weird troll outfit). The trolls sing an extremely contrived and painful song that I do not care about, which is trying to tampil Anna and Kristoff's feelings for one another, but we get NO implication that she has any feelings for him. I get the message of "Dont marry someone anda just met" thing and for the most part they do it well, though it is a slap in the face to the first 4 princesses and Tiana, but this relationship is too forced and too rushed. I know it is not the main focus, but there are other couples where it felt organic (Esmeralda and Phoebus).
So the trolls tell them that the only way for Anna to be cured is oleh cinta (and apparently the only way for Elsa to control her powers is through love; WHY did they not tell the parents and Elsa that when they went over the first time? Confusing much?). Anyways, Kristoff decides that because he loves her, he has to set her free and go to her true cinta Hans to cure her, so he takes her back to the castle. When she is returned, she begs Hans to ciuman her so she can heal, but he refuses, revealing that he is evil and used her to get to the throne. This is a nice twist, but there was absolutely no indication atau minor hint beforehand, like there ALWAYS is in these types of movies; just a bit too jarring.
So Elsa gets word that she is about to be killed, so she sneaks out of the castle. Olaf and Kristoff rushes back to Anna when eh realizes that he loves her, only to find her gone. Olaf told her everything and she went to save Elsa. Oh, I forgot to mention that Hans told the kingdom that Anna died in his arms, and her marriage vows being the last thing she berkata to him, though all he did is LOCK THE DOOR. Though she would have frozen, he should have been a bit lebih careful.
So all 4 of them end up outside in the freezing cold, and he takes his time when he about to stab Elsa, which Causes Anna to put herself in the middle and freeze completely. He flies back, and Elsa hugs her, breaking the storm, and healing Anna. Anna punches Hans and he gets arrested until he goes back to his kingdom to be dealt with oleh his brothers; but we have no indication as to WHAT. Anyways, cinta is what has Elsa control her powers, and everyone gets a happy ever after. Overview
While I do not think this film is bad, it is certainly not great. I don't even know if it is the Best Animated Film this year, atau if MU is. I'll even go far enough to say that it is weaker than PatF, Tangled, and WiR, though it has the same flaws as PatF. The story is just so simple, but so rushed, which ultimately leaves the characters that has depth, also have a rushed development. The animasi is STUNNING and detailed, and the sings give lebih depth to the characters, though the structure of the sings are unorganized as a musical, with most of them being in the first half. So many things are glared over, though I did enjoy it. I am so glad I did not get myself too excited and blown up about it, atau I would be a lot lebih disappointed than I am now.
