If ya kud change yur fate….wud ya?
You couldn’t see the preview for this movie without that last line in awesome Scottish accent ringing in your ears for a while afterward.
We had been excited about this one for a while now. Given that we mostly see what I guess would be classified as “kids” movies these days, we saw the preview pretty much every time we hit the theater.
Seemingly the story revolved around a young girl named Merida who challenges the path set before her by her parents and even more so by her restrictive mother.
“I’ll fight fur my own hand!!” is one of the quotes that is prevalent in the preview.
When we actually went and saw the movie, I was surprised to find out just how little the preview really went into what the movie was actually about. While the theme of Merida resisting the path that is chosen for her by her parents is central to the movie, the main crux has to do with choices and how choices you make can have widespread impact to many others that you are surrounded by.
It was kind of a subtle message that I’m not sure a lot of kids might pick up on, but it was there and I liked it.
Also, the story line centers around a main event that sort of struck me as odd. There was no real hint to it in the preview so I wasn’t sure if I was just surprised or if it was just an odd development. I won’t tell you what it is, but here is a hint.
And the imagery that they did for the wisps was pretty cool.
And the little brothers were really stinkin cute.
Overall if I had to compare…I liked Tangled better. But this one was still fun to watch. And you will have the urge to talk in a Scottish accent for days to come. Who wouldn’t like that?
Overall Rating: Medium popcorn, Large drink
