Summary: Is it just me or the title of this movie is called brave just like brave heart. Okay I was not looking forward to this movie just because the trailer's don't look good but did the movie suck well I can say no. this movie had some of the best animated effect's of 2012.
Summary: While Brave is certainly smarter than your average animated film, it nonetheless lacks the charm that permeates nearly every other Pixar film. It's still a very solid film that features some fantastic voice work, but Pixar has yet to return to its true form of masterful animation filmmaking.
Summary: 'Brave' is a decent animated flick that is brought down by a cliched story, boring characters, and poor humor. There are some creative touches sprinkled throughout, but nothing significant to make it rise above mediocrity. Such a shame, because from viewing the trailer, it looked like it had potential.
Excerpt: Rule of thumb: A bad Pixar film is always better than a bad film produced by any other studio. This just happens to be a average-at-best Pixar film. It's really a simple tale on the surface about a girl who doesn't want to be forced into a marriage. I found the story to be just a little thin. I know it's an animated film, therefore, it's aimed towards children, but Pixar is usually good for some adult moments, I didn't really see any here.
Excerpt: This to me was like reviewing Brother Bear once again except this time it's the main charector's mother who turns into one, a bear that is. Aside from that this film did little and nothing for me but then again i'm not the target audience here, now the target audience (my kids) they both loved it so that's a good thing.
Summary: Brave is as beautifully animated as any Pixar film and it is certainly a step up from the dreadful Cars 2. Unfortunately it's still a weak effort from the king of CG animation. What has happened to the sophistication, nuance, and special quality that Pixar is known for? Pixar has basically turned into Dreamworks animation, and hopefully it returns to the golden standard it is know for again.
Excerpt: BRAVE centers around Princess Merida, a Scottish princess who is wrestling against her impending fate to be married to one of her dad's allied clans as hard as she is struggling to win the approval of her mother Elinor. Merida’s tomboy ways displease the Queen who would very much like her daughter to be a more ladylike Princess and this has caused conflict between the two for many years.
Excerpt: Queen Elinor expresses her discontent of her daughters actions during the games. Merida stumbles into the woods and encounters an old witch who gives her a cake with a spell. Things go wrong when Merida's mother transforms into a bear. Story was flighty and lead figure was not as interesting. Highlights though we're the humor, action, animation and score. Voice acting was decent as well.
