Movie Irreview: Frozen II


***

Well... not quite as good as Frozen.  I mean, Frozen II starts off a little... I dunno... obligatory, maybe.  There's a lot about this movie that's... obligatory.

But... something happens after Anna and Elsa find the shipwreck (about halfway through the movie).  The writing finds its stride.  The narrative finds its stride.  The characters finally feel real.

And the movie goes from okay to legitimately great.

Seriously, what an awesome second half.  Kudos to the Earth giants.  Kudos to the water horse.  Kudos to the movie-saving "Show Yourself" song.

That stated... I wish the filmmakers had the courage to leave Olaf dead.

I suppose it's a Disney movie, though.

8/10.
