The Princess didn't do anything brave in the whole movie. In an attempt to set things right, Mérida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman and is granted an ill-fated wish. She is granted her wish and her mom is turned into a bear. So mom caves in and says the young people can chose by falling in love. Even more confusingly this monster turns out to be the legendary brother, it would seem, who destroyed the ancient kingdom so long ago because of his pride and selfishness. Merida's duty is to help keep the clans unified though a judicious marriage. Over the course of the story she recognizes her daughter's uniqueness and fully appreciates Merida for who she is.
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Mérida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Well-drawn female protagonists in this vein are: Paikea Keisha Castle-Hughes in Whale Rider and Jess Kaur Bhamra Parminder Nagra in Bend it Like Beckham. How how did he turn into a bear? May says destiny is what we create based on what we were given. After the film, I couldn't leave fast enough. Don't pressure your kids to do what you know is best for them, or they could get punitive. Is this one of the lessons of the movie?.
Merida is born a princess. If you are a young woman, what is the lesson here? It's what we choose to do with what we have. It starts as it should, epic. The princess doesn't seem too worried. An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Mérida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. However, this movie is not among the top Pixar films, by far. The story is really disappointing.
Merida, instead, decides to change her mother! What is Merida's role going forward? So feel free to email me at ryanhartford86 yahoo.

A lot of this I could have forgiven if the movie did not feel so disjointed, and in the second half frankly boring. I found it disturbing that every male character in the movie was portrayed as at best, big stupid and loving, King Fergus at worst violent and evil the bear.
Well, that's not hard, because the love is already there. Philosophers through the ages have distinguished the two based on choice. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. I thought I was going to see something that amazing, but with a female protagonist. She scurries around looking for the witch's house after her mother turns into a bear. The demonstrations of her skills are absolutely breathtaking. It was another balled up Disney movie that seemed like it was just trying to fit in every single cliche and Disney trademark as it could.
They abhor what they consider to be a mundane, boring, or mediocre life. After a long series of wars King Fergus Billy Connolly has united the four clans. Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Everyone was partying and getting along just fine. The trailer explained the movie as a hero rising, and the changing of fate. An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Mérida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom.
So the entire movie, basically is the main girl trying to mend her moms relationship and turn her back into a human. These kinds of characters are driven by their passion. They want to seize some grand destiny that is uniquely theirs. Do something really nasty to your mother, then say you are really sorry then your mother will change her mind and you can have it all your own way! I hope people enjoy the film, I just didn't. This is clearly Elinor on every front.
Merida makes a reckless choice that unleashes unintended peril and forces her to spring into action to set things right. Nor would I recommend seeing it. I felt the sickening presence of Disney all over the film -- weird politically correct preaching, overdone action scenes, and generally random and weird plot. What's the difference between fate and destiny? It's not like she can go and get a career. What exactly is her destiny? The whole movie reeks of feminist fantasy- wanting to live in a romantic Scottish medieval setting, sorting out mother issues and having modern rules and standards. If your parents are trying to do the very best for you, and it's cramping your style, just drug them to get them off your back.
It is Elinor who makes an eloquent plea for choice and following one's heart. She really has no viable alternative. We saw that in Snow White, Seeping Beauty, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid. Was it mother love or something else that breaks his curse? Apparently, that all females ever do: fret about who they are going to marry. The girl I was with, also seemed exhausted with this as well. It was the same old Disney princess movie: a princess having problems about who she is or is not going to marry.
