Review rate : B

“..turns out to be much less about the qualities that mark a heroine built to interest a 21st-century audience of girls, boys, and accompanying adults..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..the entire project lacks the imaginative leaps, unexpected jokes and sense of fun and wonder that habitually set Pixar productions apart from the pack..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..so "Brave" ends up in a half-realized zone - respectable, yet somehow off, even slightly at war with itself..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
3 of 4

“..satisfying and spirited and laced with humor..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
4.5 of 5

“..satisfy any child's spirit of adventure..”
by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film]
3 of 5

“..is certainly a thing of beauty. But its emotional layers don't yield the same depth..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
“..feels quite different from earlier Pixar films, demonstrating a refreshing versatility in an oeuvre that was starting to look a bit staid, especially as sequels overtook the slate..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
2.5 of 5

“..Brave's lack of an authorial touch-animation of this scale inevitably requires a great many filmmakers, Pixar's most satisfying efforts are steered by a singular vision, whereas Brave feels designed by committee..”
by David Ehrlich [Boxoffice Magazine]
Review rate : C

“..a subpar story that seems to exist mainly to sell a new Disney Princess in the form of wild-haired Merida..”
by Nancy Churnin [Dallas Morning News]
2.5 of 4

“..a subpar Pixar offering..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
3.5 of 4

“..a rousing, gorgeously animated good time..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3 of 4

“..a potent message told with psychological depth, compassion and verve..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..a happy antidote to all the recent films in which women triumph by besting men at their own macho games, as if the history of male dominance is one of patriarchs suppressing females' essential warlike nature..”
by David Edelstein [NY Magazine]

A GOOD MARRIAGE :

“..it's not bad, but it's puzzling why director Peter Askin and King himself bothered to adapt a nondescript novella from the Master of Horror's autumn years..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

BANG BANG! :

“..wish they had used more logic than bullets to create the real 'bang bang'..”
by Lokesh Dharmani [Masala]

by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

THE GOOD LIE :

“..it's a deeply touching story about survival, perseverance, and hope..”

ANNABELLE :

“..there is nothing in Annabelle that comes close to capturing a single moment of genuine fear, tension or even mild discomfort, beyond the occasional aural sting..”
by James Marsh [Twitch]

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
