Review: Brave Is Worth Waiting For

Amazing. A feminist cartoon and a joy to behold. The visual mixed media almost makes this 3D viewing come right off the screen into your lap and your heart. Photorealism. And unlike Madagascar 3 this Pixar treat has a refreshing and unpredictable plot. Brave is the story of a woman who wants to be liberated and freed from the shackles of tradition. Pixar's first movie toplined by a female character.

Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) is our heroine. She is a Scottish princess who is of the age that her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) and father King Magus (Billy Connolly) are determined to arrange a marriage for her to maintain the peace of her neighboring countries ruling clans. She watches her chosen suitors and is repulsed at the selection along with her brothers, triplets with the same cascading red hair as Merida and King Magus. A competition between these three bullies and imbeciles is arranged in the form of a competition of archery. The voices of the clan chiefs are Craig Ferguson, Kevin McKidd, and Robbie Coltrane.
