    Sweet rather than exciting.
  2. A sweet celebration of brotherhood in its many forms. It gently encourages human communion with animals, nature and our fellow man.
  3. A playful movie that celebrates nature and the spirit world with striking imagery and a smooth blend of drama and comedy.

    Blaise and Walker cleverly widen the aspect ratio as the hero's consciousness changes and make some lovely pictures of the northern lights, but the atrocious Phil Collins score (with a vocal by Tina Turner) filled me with evil spirits.
  5. Though Brother Bear is as beautiful as any of Disney's hand-drawn features, the gang-written script is deadly flat.

    Mark it: Phil Collins officially has nothing more to teach us. The tunes he's composed for Brother Bear are so generic, they're modular.

    Today's street-smart moviegoing kids don't need to be so shamelessly pandered to.

    In terms of childhood favorites, this movie is certainly up there. Amazing visuals and soundtrack, excellent plot, and funny dialogue, this movie is one of the greats of Disney's creations. Excellent, worth the 10 stars, and a must-see for Disney Die-Hards. Expand

    Great tale of a boy learning the ways of the wild bear after he kills one, avenging his brother's death. He learns throughout the film about the bear's point of view, accompanied by a young bear named Koda. Expand

    Not as good as for example, Toy Story but still for kids (aged 6-10), they'll probably enjoy it.

    Brother Bear is sweet and heartwarming, but it's not that fun or entertaining. it's almost like a dramatic film for adults aimed for kids, not knowing its place. Expand

    This movie is delightful. So dark and gloomy. I hated this movie. I was confused throughout the film. It was a pleasure to the eyes, and my soul. This movie is faced paced, boring, idiotic, good, and wierd. I don't understand my review. Expand
