Previews for Disney and Pixar’s “Brave” make the film look like a fun and exciting adventure for the entire family. Sadly, the reality is quite different.
In “Brave,” Princess Merida wishes to rebel against tradition and find her own way in the world. But she doesn’t do this, as the previews suggest, by having a brave adventure through the Scottish highlands.
Because Merida and her mother, Queen Elinor, cannot agree on what to do, Merida seeks the aid of a witch to change her mother. No adventure, just trickery.
