Critics Consensus: Brave Is Rousing and Heartfelt
This week at the multiplex, we've got Pixar's first heroine in a starring role ("Brave," with a vocal performance from Kelly Macdonald as the bow-wielding princess Merida). Plus, we've got an axe-toting undead slayer-in-chief ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," starring Benjamin Walker and Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and an apocalyptic love affair ("Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley). In addition, Woody Allen's "To Rome with Love," starring Alec Baldwin and Penelope Cruz, and "The Invisible War," a documentary about sexual assault within the armed forces, open in limited release. What do the critics have to say?
