    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    This is less a film in the lustrous Pixar tradition than a Disney fairy tale told with Pixar's virtuosity. As such, it's enjoyable, consistently beautiful, fairly conventional, occasionally surprising and ultimately disappointing. show more

    Gorgeously animated and featuring a tapestry of real-looking wonders, Brave is certainly a thing of beauty. But its emotional layers don't yield the same depth. show more

    Great action filled kid movie. Colorful animation and a good story line. Took six kids ages 2-8 and they all sat there meserized. That works for me. lol

    One of the best movies ever for mothers and daughters! A perfect fairy tail. The balance of freedom with duty and reasonability. Brilliant role modeling. Funny for the whole family.
