Adventure, Animated, Comedy
Pixar, it appears, is resting on its laurels. An amazing run featuring some of the finest animation ever produced—Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up and Toy Story 3, only interrupted by the average Cars—has started to slow down. First was the even blander Cars sequel, and now Pixar unfurls Brave, which lacks most of the traditions that had set Pixar apart. The story of a rebellious princess is not very aptly told; the animation is nothing special; the songs are awful; and there aren’t many memorable things about the subplots or supporting characters. This could be anybody’s animated movie. Brave is OK, and it definitely provides a powerful message for young girls (an audience often overlooked by animation), but just because its heart is in the right place doesn’t make Brave anything to write home about.
