“..this smartly dressed package injects a traditional fairy tale..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
4.5 of 5

“..this is a movie that should be enjoyed, with its themes of hard-won acceptance and self-confidence. It's not flawless and it requires at least some tolerance for show tunes, but "Frozen" is a real treat..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
2.5 of 4

“..the film's craft is undeniable, and yet it's not remotely the sort of family classic it's trying to be; it hits its marks with precision but not an awful lot of passion..”
by Adam Nayman [Globe and Mail]
3.5 of 4

“..make way for a new kind of fairy tale. These Frozen princesses are the kind we can definitely warm to..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
3 of 4

“..it's evolving a solid story template that will give its girl movies an identity distinct from the studio's boy films..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
3 of 4

“..Frozen isn't as sophisticated as last year's Wreck It Ralph (also written by Lee) but it's an appealing throwback - not great Disney but good enough to engage viewers young and old..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

“..Frozen is wonderfully enchanting wintry fare..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“..Frozen is a squarely enchanting fairy tale that shows you how the definition of what's fresh in animation can shift..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]

by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
Review rate : A-

by Tom Long [Detroit News]

by David Hiltbrand [Philadelphia Inquirer]

“..the adaptation of Paper Towns is a failure. But even as it fails to either develop or subvert its characterization of Margo, it succeeds in complicating all of its ancillary characters..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]


“..a predictable flurry of melodramatic jabs..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]


“..The Vatican Tapes is comparatively inert, even though it features a lot of the askew camera angles and jump-cuts that fans of the Crank series expect..”
by Noel Murray [A.V. Club]


“..every joke is forced, every special effect is un-special..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..for a movie about surprises, though, there really aren't many... this academic study tends to feel like it's by the book..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]


“..if it weren't for Sy's charm and cinematographer Stephane Fontaine's superb eye (the scenes set at the immigration detainee camp are especially evocative from a visual standpoint), Samba would be a total wash..”
by Keith Uhlich [A.V. Club]


“..alas, this doesn't excuse the film's childish simplicity, be it a line of cheesy dialogue, an overused camera trick, or the primitive romance..”
by Nikola Grozdanovic [The Playlist]


“..Martin's script holds some hard-boiled appeal, but his direction (some nice technical flourishes aside) doesn't back it up..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]


“..it might not pass muster at the multiplex, but it's clever and surprisingly easy to sit through, even if you're not a teenage fan of Smosh opuses like "My Magical Tapeworm" and "Paranormal Easy-Bake Oven"..”
by Mike Hale [NY Times]


“..overall, the insubstantial "Lucky Stiff" feels like community theater with an extravagant budget..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
