Pixar's 13th full-length film is the studio's first to feature a female as its central character, and a memorable creation she is, too.

By the climax, at which all right-thinking viewers will have dissolved in a puddle of warm appreciation, the new Pixar film has earned two cheers and a big bear hug.

Brave continues the Pixar tradition of blazing new mythical trails. And Merida is perfect as a princess with no pre-feminist baggage to apologize for.

Brave starts as a light and airy fable, but its mood rapidly turns Brothers Grimm dark and delivers a resounding moral of personal responsibility and consequences for actions.

The story for this revisionist fairy tale, which promotes contemporary attitudes about parenting and gender equality, is less inspired than usual for Pixar, but the movie upholds the studio's high standard of computer animation.

It practically goes without saying that the animation in Brave is frequently breathtaking.

The Patriot Ledger

The plot - involving a wicked witch, an endangered parent and a race to reverse a spell - is decidedly oxidized. Even the young girl's unruly mane is the color of rust. But the animation is pure state of the art.

The movie's thoughtful depiction of the mother-daughter bond is female-forward enough to mark "Brave" as special.

Courage, independence and family are all beautifully brought to life by Pixar.

Although the previews would have you believe that the film was an epic journey for the flame-haired firebrand, we are really treated (or deprived, depending on expectation) to a humble, small scale morality play.

The freedom quest of a feisty Celtic princess with a jungle of wild red hair.

Movie Metropolis

"Brave" is the first foray in fairytale storytelling for "Pixar," and their first contribution to the growing pantheon of Disney princesses. It works so well that we can safely assume that it won't be the last fairytale coming out of Emeryville.

November 11, 2012

The hopping lamp gang has done it again, giving birth to a sharp, fresh fairy tale that in the pantheon of Pixar releases may not go down as a centerpiece, but comes close enough to the bullseye to sate moviegoing subjects kingdom-wide.

Steps outside the boundaries of what seems like a rather conventional tale at the outset, and subsequently elevates itself into something else entirely.

A marvellous magical adventure, that'll perhaps stand the test of time even better than some of Pixar's movies we right now call classics.

While it doesn't break a lot of new ground, Brave is a beautiful and competent entry in Disney's robust fairytale film pedigree.

While Brave is a mile ahead of other animated features hitting our screens, it does feel like a lesser Pixar work.

Brave strives above all else to make an emotional connection, and boy does it connect: a hugely atmospheric fairytale of old, it's Pixar's most mature movie to date.

A film that truly lives up to its name, Brave gives animated princesses a much-needed reboot.

Overflowing with heart, vibrant color, thrilling adventure, and with a bold new protagonist to add to the Disney canon, Pixar's "Brave" is a wonderfully unique spin on the classic princess tale.
