As I posted elsewhere I saw this last Saturday mainly for the Dolby Atmos experience. The 3D animation and sound were excellent however the story was a big disappointment. The heroine (if one can call her that) came off as a spoiled teenager and didn't redeem herself until the final act - this is not a spoiler believe me. I was hoping for something closer to Mulan but in Brave I couldn't connect with any of the characters which is a big flaw in any movie. If you're a 3D and sound enthusiast then go see this, if not, wait for the Blu-ray rental. If I had to rank this in the Pixar library it would be at the bottom. I know I'm an outlier since it's enjoying 84% audience approval on Rotten Tomatoes but I'm more in line with the critics that didn't enjoy it.
