Courtesy to Nuffnang i get to watch up Brave premiere screening. I was anticipating this animation back to few months. So, it is nice? Lets' find out :)
In rugged and mythic Scotland, the impetuous, tangle-haired Merida, though a daughter of royalty, would rather make her mark as an archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father's kingdom and her mother's life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark ancient curse.
Lets start with storyline. It is pretty simple story line. Princess, prince, rival/enemy and finally happy ending. Pretty much like Disney style, which doesnt like Pixar at all. Story flow is alright, not much suspension, predictable and of course, not so entertaining compare to other animation. Mirida will be the first character ever that doesnt look like princess thanks to her unattractive hair. However, there is a touched moment too :) Ok I am easily touched when stuff related to family.
On style wise, I love the details in texturing and lighting. Pixar manage to pump up more detail. The forest and castle was well done. I cant complain at all. Character animation wise was perfect too especially Angue, the horse, those I am expecting it will have more role like Max from Rapunzel. Not to mention, i love the bear fight! It is pretty awesome ;)
The 3D version of Brave already on screening since last week but the Digital 2D will be available this Thursday ;)
