Overall entertainment value: OK

Story / Plot: OK

Imagination: OK

The tenets behind the mythology, the logic behind the magic: rather silly, but it's a children's film, so OK.

Animation/3D/CGI innovation: competently done, but not really seeing any breakthrough innovation (maybe one exception below)

Music / soundtrack: OK. It looks like they tried very hard to push a few power ballads, but the songs themselves just do not really move me

Moral of the story: "Do the right thing" as opposed to Disney's (and most animated features') trite and true "be yourself" formula, I suppose that qualifies as "something different"

Character development: It's sequel, and hasn't really developed the characters much beyond what's already established in the original; I think they botched it a bit by making Anna too neurotic at times

Elsa's outfits: FABULOUS. Surreal yet not too surreal, Elsa's magical outfits in Frozen II are absolutely beautiful and is the one transcendental aspect of this film. If there is innovation in animation technology in this film, I'd say it's in making Elsa's magical outfits flow with such grace and elegance in every scene no matter how Elsa moves about. Whoever designed those outfits are geniuses, who ever framed the shots featuring those magical outfits are geniuses, who ever animated and came up with the algorithms to animate those outfits are also geniuses.

Ax is going to get me to the movies more. That is a good thing.

After seeing how some people wear their masks I can understand how contraception fails.
