The NYT review is pretty close to the target on Brave. The animation is beautiful and better than the movie as a whole. The music is quite nice as well. The writing feels a bit like the product of too many committees and focus groups but not so much that it ruins the movie. I think it is this aspect that befuddles the NYT reviewer's attempt to sort out the movie's gender politics.
I found myself waiting for Mike Elsby's appearance but somehow must have missed it.
Recommended if you have kids or just really like Scottish accents and bagpipes.
It's really quite easy.
