Brave

Rated PG 100 min. 2012



If it weren't for those Cars movies, the union of Disney and Pixar would be damn near invincible. There are no cars in Brave, the latest computer-animated adventure from this outfit, but it may be a letdown to some, especially those who thought it would be a kick-ass combo of medieval action and you-go-girl empowerment. Taking place in the 10th-century Scottish highlands, the movie features Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald, almost overdoing it with the Scottish brogue), a teenage tomboy who just happens to be the princess of her kingdom. Brave has some courage to it, as Merida tones down the drama-queen act and springs into action for the good of her family. But, truth be told, it's really the most sympathetic salute to mothers Disney has released since Freaky Friday.
