Bullseye for Animation, but misses on Story

Brave was a fun romp for those who saw it in the theatre at midnight. There was also no one under ten in the theatre either. This is not your typical Disney/Pixar movie. There is more scary then scar/lucifer/ and Ursula combined. They don't shy away from that. Also the story was a copy of a failed hand-drawn animated Disney movie called Brother Bear. However you mostly ignore that because of how beautiful the animation is. Pixar has once again raised the bar on CGI animation and I don't think Dreamworks, BLue Sky or 20 Century Fox will be able to catch up soon. I was amazed at the detail, the rendering of the hair and just the sheer beauty of the world that surrounded the characters. I will recommend this but be warned that the originality of the story you learned to love from Pixar is not there. However the beauty of the animation makes up for it. This is a mother/daughter story and the previews does no show any of the plot.

This was another Disney Pixar triumph!! A wonderfully animated, entertaining story with a great life lesson built in!! In a world of Reality TV, projecting all sorts of vulgarities into the minds of our chldren this wonderful tale speaks of the struggle parents face with their children growing into young adults. Love, respect and family wins in the end!! PS..My 8 year old daughter LOVED IT!!

My Baby Boomer husband and I took our 30-year old daughter and her husband and our nine-year-old granddaughter and her best friend, and we all loved it. There's magic, a compelling and touching story, lots of humor (for adults too!). In other words, a great Pixar family film.

I have 2 5yr old girls and they loved the movie though they were a little scared during the bear scenes. They laughed alot and really enjoyed it. My husband and I thought it lacked something but couldn't pinpoint what. Still enjoyable and the movie should do well. We will purchase the movie when it comes out. :)
