Brother Bear Reviews
Providing animation that looks well enough for a theatrical film, it works to a certain degree. Nothing really stands out from the film, that is except for the more spiritual scenes from the film which are still not all that impressive but they do look nice. At best the animation is pleasant to look at, but at every other moment, it just doesn't do much.
The music is provided by Phil Collins. For the most part the music isn't bad, but it's just so weak and uninteresting. Most of it here feels like early rejected songs meant for "Tarzan", there's just nothing that feels like it's own, it's just feels like retreads from that film.
Pretty much every character in this film has what should be an interesting development but sadly they don't. None of the voice actors are interesting, and some (mainly the humans) just don't feel like they match up. Kenai is the films protagonist voiced by Joaquin Phoenix, he is not the worst character around but it's just nothing special.
It's plot is not a bad one, but it just feels like a chore to get through it. It's very slow, most of it feels like something that should be better but just isn't. Maybe it's the writing, or the actors delivery on the lines, but it's just not very entertaining.
"Brother Bear" doesn't feature anything that should make it as a bad is it is considering the premise, so it's a wonder why it's so dull; maybe if little details had been worked on more it would've been one of the greats.
