Brave was a fun and gorgeous movie in its own right, but seemed to fall flat.
When I first heard that Pixar was finally making a movie with a female protagonist, I was really excited. But I?ve been anticipating this movie for such a long time, I think I might have hyped it too much in my head.
The animation is, of course, wonderful as always. The scenery is breathtaking and the expression on the characters is stunning. The music was also really lovely and Julie Fowlis has an amazing voice. (I am definitely going to buy the soundtrack when I get the chance.)
However, Brave definitely wasn't the great Pixar movie I was hoping it?d be. I think a lot of it hasdto do with the fact my expectations for it were too high, but it just fell flat in its potential. I was hoping for something better, but there was hardly any conflict or build up. The climax didn't grip my attention and the ending felt forced. And asI left the movie theatres, I felt disappointed and maybe even a little cheated, because there wasn't even a message to take away from the movie.
