Be "BRAVE"...Just Go See It!
"Brave" is delightfully entertaining and I definitely recommend seeing it on the big screen. 3D is good too, but not completely necessary. You can still get the full effect without it.
I'm keeping this review short and sweet because anything I'd like to say about it, would really spoil it too much. There is an unexpected twist to the story and I am SO glad the commercials and trailers have not alluded to it...yet...and I really hope they don't.
I'm really digging how Disney has changed directions with their female characters...turning them from damsels in distress to true heroines with strength, purpose, and confidence. Brave's main character, Merida, has definitely earned her place along side Mulan, Tiana, and Rapunzel...redefining what it is to be a "princess." I effin' love it!
UGH! I want to say more, but I don't want to spoil it for you!
So I'll just say this...
If you are a mom and you have a daughter between...say...10 and 15 years old...see this movie together.
Oh wait...one more thing...
In my opinion, this movie is a little "too much" for kids under 7...especially in 3D. The reaction I saw from the smaller kiddies at the premier left me believing that they will be sleeping with their parents for a month! You have been warned...
