This movie certainly is something different from Pixar. You wouldn't really think that it would be from this studio, but you know what? It really is. And after watching this movie, I thought it was a good movie. However, I will say this right now, it definitely is not up there with Pixar's other movies. The story is rather cliche, simply because it's about a mother daughter relationship that we've seen before. Mind you it was one done right, because it had several touching moments, but I personally had something else in mind when going into this movie. This also must be the reason why a lot of people say this movie is disappointing. The animation though was impressive and because of this, it makes the movie very atmospheric, most notably whenever Merida would be inside the forest. The characters are pretty enjoyable I would say. They make for some very funny moments that occur throughout the movie, especially Merida's mischievous little brothers. The biggest problem with the movie I would say is the whole war between the three groups of warriors. It just seemed very unnecessary to me and I really didn't know what purpose it really served. Sure it also served for some funny moments, but when looking at it from a story perspective, what purpose did it really serve? I was very confused by all of this, and there just should have been more backstory to the three groups of warriors. The same can also be said about the witch. Literally all she is there for is to place the curse on Elinor, and I really really was disappointed by the fact that that's all she does in the movie. Out of all characters in this movie, the witch is definitely the most dissapointing one in my opinion. There's no backstory, nothing else about the witch. When going into this movie, I knew that there were a lot of people who were very disappointed by it, and I'm not going to lie, I was a bit disappointed too, but not super disappointed by it. Sure there are a few disappointments I have with the movie, but it's certainly not something terrible, or even bad for that matter. I'd give this anything around 7 or 7.5 out of 10. It really does not compare to anything like Wreck-It-Ralph. While I was expecting more from this movie, I still enjoyed it. I mean, I would take anything like this right after Cars 2 ANY DAY.
