Wow, I didn't know you could still find good mainstream movies without vulgarity or massive amounts of sex. This was really good.
The plot was good. Seeing the main characters overcoming their long-lived sadness at the death of the main character's mother was worth the whole movie. The scenery and characters were a delight. I especially liked the polar bear who was in love with the Snow Queen.
The only things that kept this movie from getting five stars are as follows:
1. The "Fall Robber Queen" and her daughter. The former just didn't seem to fit and the latter was just plain annoying.
2. The movie was rather long. Around three hours, actually. This is a little much for the "whole family," as younger children will probably not keep their attention focused for that long. And, if they do . . .
3. The scene where Satan is forging the mirror was a bit creepy for an adult. I can just imagine how a child will react to it.
But it is still a wonderful alternative to the stuff that normally comes out of Hollywood.
