Brave 3D Review From Blazing Minds
It’s been a while since I sat down in the cinema and watched a Disney/Pixar movie, yes I’ve watched a fair few at home as my DVD/Blu-Ray collection of the Disney/Pixar movies is ever growing, but the expeirence of one of the big screen as been sorely missed.
So last night, I finished work, got home, sorted myself out, grabbed my 3D glasses and headed off to the Apollo Cinema in Rhyl for the screen of Brave 3D.
Now first I have to say that I wasn’t overly sure what Brave was going to be about, I’d seen the teaser trailer, as most of us do, so I was going in to see the film in the way I like it, without knowing much about it.
From the very start of Brave I was in aw of the CGI landscapes and how Pixar have come on in leaps and bounds since those early days of Toy Story, the red hair of Merida (Kelly MacDonald) is so amazingly done, but the star of the film has to be the CGI sets and backdrops.
Brave does have a lovely story, with the love of a mother and daughter who have to learn to the values of each other after a witch (Julie Walters) casts a spell for Merida, that doesn’t go as Merida would have hoped it would.
Although I do have to say that Brave does seem to lack some of those witty, comical, moments that we have seen in previous Pixar films such as Toy Story, The Incredibles and UP, but it’s still a wonderful charming family film, that will have the kids laughing out loud at some of the funnier moments.
Brave, for me, has some of the best CGI that I’ve seen from Disney/Pixar and the sheer quality of the production of the film is amazing, it’s crisp, clear and colourful, even in 3D which is usually quite rare as with the 3D glasses on you do get a slightly duller image.
Overall Thoughts For Brave 3D
Brave is a great family full, it may not have all the belly laughs that we have seen in earlier Pixar films, but it is fun, emotional and exciting, certainly a film that kids of all ages will enjoy seeing, the 3D is very well done and the CGI is a visual delight.
