Bad word

The movies was ok but at the one hour and 8 minutes mark it sounds like Santa say "Are you ok N-word". Not cool.

Not for santa believers!

What the information doesn't say is the whole episode centers around the idea that Santa isn't real - there is a lot of dialogue about it, the math proving that Santa couldn't deliver to all the houses and even saying that older kids are strange for still believing. While Santa is eventually shown as a real (and magic) person, it doesn't totally counteract the previous hour of the 'Santa doesn't exist' message. Comedy comes in the form of a bounty being put out for Santa for 'stealing cookies from children' but I'm afraid that humor kind of went over my little guy's head. Not awful, but given the target audience there were so many other storylines that could have been explored.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

For the intended audiences, this holiday-themed adventure will be a hit. Those expecting high-quality animation, flawed and nuanced superheroes fighting crime amid bleak backdrops, and noirish storylines should look elsewhere. This is somewhat silly and not terribly original holiday-themed fare geared toward younger kids, with animation reminiscent of the Saturday-morning cartoons of the late 20th century. Perhaps the only thing separating this is a humor rooted in self-awareness, coming out most notably in the endless quips and one-liners of Iron Man but also evident in the Hulk and Thor.

Those expecting anything more than a holiday special with obligatory nods to the True Meaning of Christmas will be disappointed. But for parents who have grown weary of the superhero animated features that are filled with profanity, cynicism, and graphic violence, MARVEL SUPER HERO ADVENTURES: FROST FIGHT! might be a welcome respite -- and perhaps even a nostalgic look back to a time when superheroes weren't constantly wrestling with their inner demons while trying to rescue a humanity wearied of the havoc they unleash but were instead, you know, heroic.
