Kelly McDonald plays "Merida" the princess daughter to Scottish King Fergus (Bill Connolly). Merida would rather be a tomboy and do her own thing rather then participate in the traditions of being a Scottish Princess. Out of anger with her mother the queen (Emma Thompson), Merida rides her horse into the forest and follows some fairies. The fairies lead her to a cottage where a little old lady lives. This little old lady happens to be a witch who can cast spells. Merida asks the witch to cast a spell that will change her destiny. The story unfolds from there...
I found "Brave" surprisingly cute, fun and entertaining!! It's definitely fast paced and never boring. The animation is very good. The cinematography and camera angles are breath taking at times. Children young and old will enjoy it.
This isn't the best movie that Pixar has done, but it's definitely worth seeing.

I saw Brave on Saturday night. I loved it. It was funny, thoughtful, and beautiful animation (the hair and the scenery). I love the original story.
I am tired of hearing how it isn't as good as Toy Story or Monster's Inc. Those were different stories. While the other two stories are my favorites, this movie should be look at by its own merit.
Go see it.

This is a beautiful movie visually. I enjoyed the entire story, as did my adult companion; but we took a 4- and a 5-year-old who had difficulty understanding the storyline. The younger child was also afraid of the "evil" character and mild fighting scenes. I explained the story as the movie went along, but it was still a bit complicated for children that young. We adults loved, loved, loved it though -- again, it was beautifully done.

This film was amazing and the 1 hr. 40 minute run time flew by in the blink of an eye! The characters are all solid, the story line is touching, but funny and I highly recommend it! Go see it... run, don't walk!
