For parents who are tired of the hip, stupid bombast of films like Shark Tale, it'll do.

It's a tale with plenty of spirit and a good heart, and yet, this story doesn't so much soar across the screen as it does waddle.

Will probably keep youngsters entertained for its short 76 minutes running time.

Pode não ser uma obra-prima (não é mesmo), mas é suficientemente bem realizado para merecer uma conferida enquanto o novo projeto da Pixar não chega aos cinemas.

It's a happy and welcome debut, showing not only a genuine sense of humour and technical brilliance, but a clever ability to combine serious themes with family entertainment.

...this spunky little film doesn't let the minor matter of a bland central character and a lackluster script get it down.

Despite its formulaic trappings, 'Valiant' proves that great heartfelt storytelling will almost always win out over big budget brawn.

It has enough laughs and close calls to keep the target audience entertained for an hour or so.

An animated war epic - it doesn't sound like it would fly but it does.

Even though its historical references and battle scenes may fly over their heads like so many homing pigeons, kids will enjoy Valiant, too, if only for its nonstop action and lively visual design.

This cleverly told animated World War II adventure aims high and scores a pretty lofty goal.

Though it's made with wit, style and sweetness, it may be a tricky match for American audiences.

It's no Shrek, but what Valiant lacks in looks, it makes up for with its perky winged heroes and high-flying concept.
