Brother Bear Review

Hop to

In a time when mammoths roam the
lands, three Inuit brothers, Kenai, Sitka
and Denahi, hunt and fish the mountain
ranges. But when Kenai reaches manhood
and is awarded his totem, the Bear of
Love, he offends the ancestral spirits, and
is turned into a bear. Hunted by his own
people, he turns to the animals of the
forest for help.
Brother Bear is technically impressive,
with some stunning CGI-enhanced
animation of stampedes and avalanches.
Nonetheless, it is still formulaic, heartless
movie-making. With its Phil Collins and
Tina Turner songs, politically correct
messages about family and selfconfidence,
and lame reliance on
anachronistic humour, Brother Bear is a
good example of why Disney's reputation
is in the can and rivals like Pixar are
beating them hands down. This might
entertain four-year-old slapstick fans, but
adults looking for the sort of animated
enjoyment provided by Toy Story and
Shrek, will be disappointed.
