Brave: Movie review

Brave's theatrical poster
Have you seen the movie Braveheart which is taken at Scotland? 

Be amazed as Disney Pixar’s latest masterpiece, Brave revives your senses never in such a magical and virtual way. 

In the film, set in the Highlands of Scotland, a skilled archer named Merida defies an age-old custom, causing chaos in her kingdom. After consulting a witch for help, her family becomes cursed and Merida is forced to undo the spell herself before it is too late. In the world where women nowadays love to color their hair with brown or its different shades, her thick burgundy curly hair outstands. Alike with her identical triplets’ hair: Hamish, Hubert and Harris. Their brunt characters are remarkable about this movie.

Families and kids of all ages flocked to watch this, earning it the top spot at the box office, with a $ 469,266,000.00. 

Based on the strength of the movie – little girls and likely their moms will want to watch this very original Disney Princess Merida again and again – Brave is an instant classic. And it marks the 13th straight number one movie opening for Pixar Animation Studio.

This is also the first movie from Pixar wherein the protagonist is woman—the strength of the movie is that men let the women speak their mind. Along the conversation between King Fergus and his wife, Queen Elinor, there’s a sense of understanding and compromise. Meanwhile as Merida is growing up the tension and misunderstanding involving her and her mom increases too. The heartfelt mother-daughter tale pushes the envelope of computer animation, while sticking with an original story that turns the classic Disney faerie tale inside out.

One the famous lines from the movie:

Princess Merida: I want my freedom!
Queen Elinor: But are you willing to pay the price your freedom will cost?

The music under and country songs insert exquisiteness of the Highlands of Scotland, and Pixar hired real Scottish actors like Craig Ferguson (Lord Macintosh) and Kelly Macdonald (Merida). 

When it comes to special effects, the will-o'-the-wisp (moving light that appears and disappears immediately) adds flavor to the movie setting. As it leads Merida to meet the witch and requested her to make a potion for her mother to change, but the spell made her mother turned into a bear. The twist in this film was heartfelt as the development of each character grows and fortifies.

The film is about changing your fate—Merida, Queen Elinor, king Fergus, the triplets slowly change as the movie ends. 

Another, happy-ever-after film from Disney minus Merida's Prince charming

Originally, Brave's title is The bow and the bear
