Film: Brave

A young Princess defies her Mother’s wishes with disastrous results in the latest beautifully animated tale from Pixar.

The Queen has invited young men from across the land (an atmospheric medieval Scotland) to compete for her daughter’s hand but Princess Merida is having none of it. Determined to avoid the marriage she sets out on a journey that will not only change her own fate but that of her family and country.

The voice cast features Kelly MacDonald, Billy Connolly and Kevin McKidd with Connolly as the stand-out in his portrayal of the passionate but clumsy King.

This isn’t anywhere near the genius of Toy Story and it does get a bit too silly but the wonderful setting and colourful characters make this a nice easy viewing experience for parents and kids although some darker scenes may not be appropriate for younger children.

Brave is in UK cinemas now.

Ric’s Rating: Good.      


  1. Didn't make it to the theater to see this one, but I know I'll watch it on NetFlix.

  2. It's quite enjoyable Alex. Let me know what you think.

  3. Brave was just released in my country, so I plan to give it a go next week. I don't expect too much though.

    Just for the record, I mentioned you in my latest anniversary post. :)

  4. Best not to George and thanks for the mention!
