Brave is Pixar's move away from child focus animation to an animation with a plot that had some drama. The movie is enjoyable, especially if you don't know much about the movie and you stayed away from the trailers, I was surprised at the turn of events majorly the whole mother and daughter connection, caught me off guard as i was accustomed to the male lead world. Brave is a change from the regular, having a female lead is something, having two female leads and no romance or male attachment involved is a stab in the dark, a chance that Pixar took, a chance that was met with positive reviews and a good stake in the box office returns that year, as it was a commercial success.

After the movie is over you will know immediately that this is not going to win any Oscar, but you will feel glad that you have seen a nice movie.

Brave is a 3D computer-animated fantasy adventure film from Pixar. It was set in the highlands of 10th century Scotland, and the lead role Merida is Pixar's first female protagonist. The movie is directed by Brenda Chapman who is Pixar's first female director and she also wrote the story.

The thing I want you to look out for when you are watching this movie is Merida's brothers, those kids were a menace to the power of 3.

Giving you the plot of the movie without revealing much is going to be quite hard, but I will try. Merida defies an age-old custom, causing chaos in her kingdom. After consulting with a witch for help, she is given a cake that caused a change of events in her family, now Merida has to undo the spell herself before it is too late.

The movie's flow is kind of shallow, and the movie looked short, like more could have happened and it didn't. You will love the scenery and the way the women were different from the men in the area of manners and thought. The movie did drive a message though, that both mothers and daughters have to communicate, with both leaving room to understand the other. But the message may not go down well the male viewers who were probably looking for some action.

Voice casting is a part of the movie I enjoyed. It was Scottish to the core.

I can't say for certain if the movie will bring in the regular money that Pixar is use to too, but I do know it is not a bad watch. It is something you will enjoy.
