A scene from Brave

Film Review: ‘Brave’ starring Kelly Macdonald

Like a lot of people, I have a soft spot for Pixar and their incredibly charming style of storytelling. Compared to their first few films though, the studio is not creating the vivid work we once were used to seeing, which is what established the company’s credibility with worldwide audiences from the start. That’s not to say that Brave is somehow a bad film, but the difference from a few years ago–when the studio released films with spellbinding stories–is just that Brave is not exactly exceptional.
