Conclusion: 2/5
The costuming and the hair and makeup were ridiculous and way over the top. How long it took the team to do must have taken hours. This film was real hard work to even watch. It is a complete waste of talent of each and everyone of the actors. Basically a rip off from the film Frozen (2013). It doesn’t even have a catchy song in this film. Rupert Sanders who directed the first film was down to direct this although was dropped from the project. Part of the film was filmed in Wells, Somerset and can be briefly seen in the trailer. One thing I did enjoy was Rob Brydon’s part, as there was no way I could have taken his part seriously. He must have had so much fun being on the set with everyone. Without Rob Brydon I would have given this film 1/5. Film critic Peter Bradshaw quoted in his review “A dud follow-up to a film no one liked”.
