Academy Award-nominated fairy tale from Pixar Studios. Headstrong tomboy and skilled archer Princess Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) is determined to break with tradition and carve out her own path in life. In defiance of her parents, King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), Merida flies in the face of an age-old custom held sacred by the three principal lords of the land, Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), Lord MacIntosh (Craig Ferguson) and Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Her actions lead to chaos in the kingdom, and it is now up to Merida not only to restore harmony in the land but to undo an ill-fated wish bestowed upon her by a wayward wise woman (Julie Walters). The feature won a Golden Globe Award in the Best Animated Feature Film category.

There are so many animated movies these days, you expect many of them to be rubbish. Some are, but it seems to me most of the things out of the Pixar stable keep on providing the goods.

I was thoroughly entertained by brave, the lovely cartoony animations all so fluidly done, mixed in with stunningly realized vistas, and my favourite part, the lighting. The amazing lighting just brings a life to the whole fantasy highland world here that makes it feel almost tangible, and sucks you right into it. That immersion really helps you empathize with the characters.

That's one of the things I really appreciated. Plenty of wooden performances from real actors in real movies that you don't care about, and here in an animated movie, you felt their pain as much as their happiness, you wanted things to be resolved, you cared what happened.

There are some laugh out loud moments too, and near the end, I even felt a little tear trickle out, so it did it's job. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say baby, cleavage, and high dive. After you've watched it, which I thoroughly recommend that you do, if that reference doesn't bring a smile to your face then you probably shouldn't be watching any movies at all, let alone animated ones.

Totally safe and fun viewing for all ages, and you don't have to put this on just to appease some younger viewers, this is totally worth your time even if you don't have kids to watch it with, or if you want to watch it without them if you do.

I watched this through the Prime streaming, which was flawless and excellent quality. Great movie, will watch again.

Brave is about a teenage girl called Merida set in ancient Scotland. It is a very good film for children although it is PG rated for its scary scenes and depictions of violence. It's 93 minutes in length.

Disc 1 is a Blu-Ray 3D + Bonus Feature

Disc 2 is a Blu-Ray 2D + Bonus Feature

Disc 3 is a Blu-Ray Bonus Disc : 'Fergus & Mer'du Alternate Opening / Fallen Warriors / Dirty Hairy People / It's English...Sort Of / Angus / The Tapestry / Promotional Pieces / Art Gallery

Disney and Pixar team up yet again for another animated film that promises to entertain the young ones while offering up enough wit, humour and mature themes to keep the adults engaged. Brave isn't their best effort, but it deserves much more credit than it has been given, because it's a visually stimulating spectacle that offers up a traditional story mixed with a little new-age twist that reminds us why we trust Disney and Pixar to always deliver the goods, despite their Cars 2 fumble.

Brave is thoughtful and funny and it attacks its themes and morality without a hidden agenda or layered story. It's simple and to the point and not once does it try re-invent the formula that it's running with. It's your traditional princess coming-of-age story, wrapped with a modern twist that speaks to audiences now just as much as it spoke to audiences back when other Disney classics were released.

Kelly Macdonald provides her voice as the leading lady Merida and she creates a strong-willed and stubborn young girl on the cusp of childhood, leading into adulthood. She gives the character a much-needed strength that's still funny and easy going whenever she needs to be.

Brave is the nearest Pixar have come to a traditional fairy-tale. It has a princess, it has a witch, it has a curse and a moral. All the ingredients for a good yarn.

Having flown under Disney's banner since their inception, Pixar have largely stuck to buddy comedies and off kilt dramas. A toe dip into the fairy-tale realm has proven to be highly successful as they have clearly relished the challenge. The problem with this story format is that it is so well worn by the old hands at Disney, that it is difficult to imagine where it could go to feel fresh and new. Pixar have managed just that with Brave.

By setting the story in a medieval Scotland but keeping the themes modern, they have successfully grounded the film within a sort of reality that many people can relate to. The story of a mother and daughter struggling to understand each other and clashing at every turn is likely to be an everyday occurrence in many households and it is this thread that binds the story.

Merida is a feisty teenage princess. She is independent and full of life and is distraught when her Mother organises a competition to find a suitor for her. With her trusty horse, Angus, she flies off into the woods only to meet a Witch who offers a helping hand. Suffice to say things do not go quite as she planned.

Merida is no ordinary princess. She loves adventure and is handy with a bow. She is a tom boy and is proud of it. She is fancy free and wants to live life her way which inevitably riles her Mother.

Pixar have masterfully created a relationship which doesn't feel forced. The Mother is equally as sympathetic as Merida and you can see both sides to the story. When they conclude that a compromise is needed it feels right and equal to both sides.
