Theron stars in this Extended Edition as evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Blunt) with an unforgiveable act, freezing Freya's heart to love and unleashing in her an icy power she never knew she possessed.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Every resonant theme or intriguing story possibility is stripped away and replaced with a ready-made franchise-movie conceit.
Rotten: The script lifts so much plot from Disney's animated Frozen that it could qualify as a remake. No one sings "Let It Go," but my advice to audiences is to do just that.
Rotten: Nearly every major character dies and comes back to life at least once and a convoluted narrative yields not a single, palpable moment of drama.
Rotten: There would be use for a properly dark Frozen retelling, more in line with the original tale, where the afflicted actually uses her power for malfeasance. But Freya is a snow day late and a dollar short.
Nothing like the previews!
Boring! The two queens played a tiny (boring) part in the movie. This seems to be a common thread nowadays with movies amping us up by way of previews only to show us loooong scenes with a lot of nothing to fill-in the time.
At first i was a bit skeptical due to reading review from google, however i must say that the dynamic in the characters is quite interesting. The effects were very well done, and while understandably the narration does help, i felt that it was a bit off putting in some parts of the movie. The acting is phenomenal.
I really enjoyed the movie
Is it Oscar worthy? No, but it IS entertaining!! I really enjoyed watching this movie in the theaters, and can’t wait to own it. I thought everyone played their parts well, great casting job!
