    Verdict - A Worthy Watch

    BraveWatch trailerRelease date : June 22, 2012



    Pixars latest animated effort rises above the mediocrity of Cars 2 but falls short of much of the animation juggernauts past efforts. Brave is a movie that contains potential for greatness but only manages to achieve it on the technical front. The script meanders in the wilderness for much of its middle portion leading to a rushed and somewhat abrupt ending that tries really hard to forge an emotional connect. Alas the setup is sketchy and that renders the ending less than effective.

    In a far away Scottish kingdom, the feisty red-haired princess Merida dreams of nothing more than wielding her bow and arrow, scaling high cliffs, riding through the wilderness and being carefree. Her mother however has different plans for her and wants her to get married off in a lady-like fashion. A series of mystical events leads Merida to the hut of a witch who grants her a spell. Merida wishes for her mother to change and thus leading to Meridas fate changing. Things dont go as per plan and Meridas mom does change but quite literally into a bear and with the clans enmity with the species, things look bleak for her. Merida has to now set things right but theres also the bit about her fate and destiny which involves squaring off against large fearsome bear of more myth and legend.

    The animation is astounding and so is the voice work and accents. The humour also works though much of it tends to get too slapstick at times. I understand the emotional resonance its themes want to have but they are poorly built and established thus leading to a plot that feels unsatisfying; a middle portion that drags doesnt help the movie either.

    Brave is a worthy watch but dont expect the sky from this one and youll be satisfied. Oh and do watch out for the triplets, they are a blast.
