Brave

Disney and Pixar's Academy Award-winning animated adventure about Merida (voiced by Kelly McDonald), a Scottish princess who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasties. A skilled archer and the spirited daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), Merida is determined to follow her own path.

She defies an age-old custom to marry the sons of the land’s lords: massive MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). But this inadvertently unleashes chaos and fury in the kingdom, forcing Merida to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.

Best Animated Film at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTA Awards 2013.

In addition to being fast, funny, and unpretentious, Brave is a happy antidote to all the recent films in which women triumph by besting men at their own macho games...

The animation studio's first film with a female protagonist, a defiant lass who acts as a much-welcome corrective to retrograde Disney heroines of the past and the company's unstoppable pink-princess merchandising.

Brave offers a tougher, more self-reliant heroine for an era in which princes aren't so charming, set in a sumptuously detailed Scottish environment where her spirit blazes bright as her fiery red hair.

This isn't the NASCAR-fellating cash grab that is the Cars franchise, but it's still Pixar on preachy autopilot.

Pixar's 13th feature plays it safe and old-fashioned rather than risky and adventurous.

There's no denying the film's refrain that legends are lessons, but Brave is sadly remedial.

At its best, Brave accesses all the complicated feelings involved between a parent and a rebellious adolescent.

I wanted to love this. Scottish accents! Directed by a woman! First female Pixar protagonist! Princess without a love interest! The "progressiveness" hype reminded me a little of the "first Black princess" hype surrounding The Princess and the Frog. Unfortunately, while TPATF managed to stand on purely artistic merits - great songs, fantastic voice cast,...

Brave is the latest film from the already legendary Pixar animation factory. However it breaks from the Pixar tradition in that it is about a Princess. Princesses have been the exclusive domain of standard Disney animation, and what a history they have had. With films such as Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and the Little Mermaid, there...

It was refreshing to see an animation with a female heroine with courage and heart. The Highland drawl and Scottish setting adds another cultural dimension to the Pixar films of past. A thoroughly enjoyable movie that the kids loved, as well as the adults. Definitely a successful arrow in the bow in my eyes - a hot flick!

Very good movie. The nature scenes looked real i.e. rivers, grass and rocks. I'd recommend it.

This is a very enjoyable movie about a feisty redhead growing up and wanting her own life.The voicing fit the characters perfectly and it all works so that you are swept along with the story. There are a few scary images in the film when the very young might close their eyes but it will be enjoyed by both the kids and the adults. Great fun with never a dull...

This is a great film for the family about a scottish princess that wants to be her own person and go around the land shooting arrows at nature. Her mother wants her to get married. There is a fight between the two and the scottish princess has to pick her suitor. This is another great film from Pixar and i do recommend it.
