Brave Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

The studio’s latest film Brave, however, can be safely described as a children’s movie. After all, the animation is gorgeous but the humor is mostly slapstick, and the message is hammered into our heads repeatedly. Plus, the film’s premise – of a feisty princess who must undo a witch’s dastardly spell in the face of danger – feels old-fashioned and familiar.But don’t expect to lose your heart to these characters. They just don’t have the depth of Carl Fredrickson and Ellie in Up, or Woody and Buzz in Toy Story 3. Neither layered, nor blazingly original like many of Pixar’s previous films, Brave offers relentless action and silly laughs instead…which isn’t exactly a terrible recipe for a children’s film.I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for Brave. It’s got its moments, but you can’t help feeling let down.

Despite an insanely well-rendered crop of red-ringletted hair, Brave is a cute film that makes all the right noises. But just that many, mind you. Missing is the sense of joyous fulfilment — and handkerchief-need — brought on usually by Pixar films, as is the complexity in character. Brave is essentially Freaky Friday pretending to be Mulan: and both those Disney productions were decidedly more entertaining.

what’s so brave about Brave? The very Princess in question, Merida, who does not believe in playing by the rules come what may. So much so, she wants a bow and arrow on her birthday unlike the princess next door. In fact, she surely is in for a big fan following amongst rebellious teens this weekend.But then it’s once again the very girl power that takes you by surprise, specially when Princess Merida decides to change the rules of the games in this movie that presents Hollywood’s version of our very own swayamvar. Woman(iya) power indeed!. Different. Daring. Dazzling… in 3D.

While Brave is unquestionably a film of breath-taking beauty, it does not offer the kind of food for thought that Toy Story or Wall-E did. Sure, family dynamics is explored, but there is no significant deviation on this theme by the time the credits fall. At the same time the story isn’t terribly dull or that badly wanting in emotional resonance.Brave is a spell-bindingly pretty, moderately-entertaining but not extremely profound Pixar offering. As beautiful as animated films come, this is one film the genre’s buffs wouldn’t want to miss out on. They must, however, be ready to forgive the relative conventionalism.
