Movie Reviews

Not that bad
S. Brown | Las Vegas, NV USA | 11/04/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In all fairness, I had to add my review. My daughter (10 yrs) has rented this movie twice from Hollywood where she gets it for 5 days and watches it every night of those five days. Obviously, it isn't as bad as the other reviewers would have you believe. It's apparently good enough that she asked for it for Christmas, as well. Is it as good as the other version by director David Wu? There really is no comparison. If you saw the theatrical version first, this one would likely be disappointing, as it would be if you expected it to meticuluosly follow the original fairy tale. However, it is entertaining to the young and deserving of viewing for those who enjoy cartoon fairy tales. She recommends it as one of the better movies for kids."
Can I give it *negative* stars...? Please?

"This is the absolute worst movie I have ever seen. I rented it in hopes that it was the version of the Snow Queen that they always used to play on television. It's not. THAT version was an absolutely beautiful piece of work. This version is the most insipid thing I've ever had the misfortune to view. Whoever did this took the original story by Hans Christian Anderson (who I can just FEEL turning over in his grave) and turned it into a fairy tale just like the other hundred or so that have been released for children on video. The attempts at characterization are laughable, as are the "villains"-- the snow queen wants to take "her" mirror and block out the sun, so that the world will be ICE and so that no one will be able to think. The old evil witch-lady (who was just *lonely* in the original) wants Ellie's heart so that she can be young forever Heard this all before, thanks. The music... Well, I won't elaborate on that. I tried my personal best to block it out. Don't rent this, unless you really want something to make fun of. That is all it's good for."
The kids like it

"My 3-year-old really likes it, and the 11-year-old is watching it. What more can a frazzled parent ask for? 11-yo says it's weird but good. 3-yo laughs a lot."
