What I liked:

  • It stars a curly haired girl! 
  • It's not a love story.  There is no romance.
  • It has the voices of Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Waters, Robbie Coltrane, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, and John Ratzenberger.
  • It's Pixar so the animation is outstanding.
  • Merida is a strong willed, independent girl.
  • Again with the archery!

What I didn't like:
  • The trailer is misleading.  The main story line is about the relationship between the princess and the queen.  It's not really about Merida gaining her independence.
  • The princess seems terribly young to be getting engaged in the first place.
  • There are a lot of naked butts for a children's movie.
  • There is no big song and dance number.
  • There is action but I am not sure it is enough to hold a child's attention.

Grade: B-
