Surprising and delightful

The imagery in Brave was really spectacular, and by the trailers that I have seen over and over again- I wasn't expecting much to be a surprise. The story line actually wasn't completely given away and I was drawn into the fantasy and the relationship of the mother and daughter. My kids loved it, and are already talking about wanting it on their iPods. It was a great adventure for them, and I enjoyed it as well.

Took granddaughter and grandson to see this movie. We all loved the movie. Pixar - great job. Would highly recommend movie. Some scary previews for younger children, however.

Incredible animation and empowering story for girls

I enjoyed the Pixar animation immensely. The flow of the heroine's wild, red hair was so realistic. The depiction of the animals, especially Angus, the girls's horse, come so close to filmed images that is lends to the realism of the story and excitement of the imagery. Of course since the animals, bears, horses,etc. are cgi productions, it allows for imposing human expressions upon them. I think that children over 14 may be too old to enjoy the movie as much as younger kids, but us 50ish kids at heart can revel in the action and visual feast.

beautifully animated but ultimately disappointing

I really wanted to like this movie more than I did. My daughter and I were so excited to see it together. Although visually stunning, the story was a big let-down. Pixar has always delivered a great story, rich with dialogue both spoken (Toy Story 3, Finding Nemo) and unspoken (Wall-E) and relational complexities (Toy Stories) but Elinor and Merida's mother-daughter struggle felt very flat. I didn't like either of them very much and therefore didn't care about them in the end. The whole Brother Bear redux felt lazy and uninspired. When I left the theater I felt like Pixar had wasted the opportunity of this beautiful film; it should have been so much more than it was.
