Goofs

After Mor'du gets crushed by a large piece of stone, and the sun is rising, Merida removes the tapestry from Angus to place over her mother, who is still a bear, in hope to break the spell. Angus also appears to be in the circle of stones, yet, in the shot that views everyone in the circle of stones from above, Angus is nowhere in sight. See more »

Disappointed.
27 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Good: Great use of real Scottish people doing the voices.

Looked nice and authentic.

Bad:

The plot is just too thin. I can't give it away, but you'll know what I mean when you see it.

I didn't laugh as much as I thought I was going too.

Yet again, another 3D movie that has been produced WITHOUT increasing the brightness because when you view it with the 3D glasses, it dims the picture. A lot of the movie was shot in dim light, so watching with the glasses you just can't see what is going on or at best cannot see the detail of the sets or characters. Don't they think about this when they produce the final edit?

I took my glasses off for the last 10 minutes because I was fed up struggling to see the detail. I could see the movie was properly lit without the glasses on.

Going to watch movies in 2D from now on.

Disappointing.
