5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Bear July 18 2004
Format:DVD
I saw the trailers for Brother Bear when it was in theatres and didn't really think much about it, until it got the Academy Award Nomination for Best Animated Feature, then I said to myself that this could be good, and guess what...it is!
Brother Bear is about Kenai (Joaquin Phoenix), a young Native boy who takes revenge on the bear who killed his older brother. When his brother's spirit sees what he's doing, he changes Kenai into a Bear to make him see through the animals point-of-view.
AMAZING! I was really impressed at how well done this movie is. I have to admit that this is one of my favorite animated films to date. The music by Phil Collins and (surprise!) Tina Turner are great! The score really stands out too, especially during the exciting transformation scene. Though, not as much music as my second favorite animated film, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, this one still delivers and music placement is put in where music is needed. The story is a bit strong and there are some scary scenes that may frighten little children, but other than that, the kids will forget about it when the two hilarious Moose, Rutt and Tuke, arrive on-screen (voiced wonderfully by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas). The Animation mixed in with a few CGI's are fantastic! as is the detail and the usage of the widescreen scope is used to the fullest extent. I was reading around and one reviewer said that this is a collaboration of all of the Disney themes, such as family in 'The Lion King', the transformation of 'The Little Mermaid', the Natives in 'Pocahontas' and the collaboration of Phil Collins again, just like in 'Tarzan'. I do agree with this and found it incredibly interesting that there are similarities which I welcome to with open arms.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disney Does It Again! June 9 2004
Format:DVD
I borrowed this movie from a friend with kids and thought "Ah, what the heck?" I am so glad that I borrowed it and I'm off to buy my own copy.
Brother Bear is the coming of age story of three brothers. The youngest is supposed to find love before he can become a man...and learn the meaning of the word. He wants strength and honor, not love. In order to teach him a lesson the spirit of his older brother turns him into a bear. He sees things from a different perspective and learns to love. The characters in the movie are what make this predictable tale so great. Rick Moranis is the voice of one moose. It's almost like the moose came straight out of Strange Brew. Very funny!
Definitely watch this...even if you don't have kids.

We saw this movie 5 times at the theater and countless times on DVD and still our whole family LOVES it!!!!!!! This is a Lion King style movie...The sound track is fantastic! The visuals are stunningly beautiful! The story is great with a wonderful message for people of all ages! A lot more young kid friendly than Nemo. My 3 year old daughter hated Finding Nemo because it went from one terrifying, violent moment to another, but Brother Bear she loves. While it has some scary violence in it, those moments are broken up with comic relief, songs and meaningful story progression. Like Lion King and Finding Nemo, the topic of death plays a role, but in the end, it is shown that those loved ones who were lost are still forever watching over the ones they left behind. This is a wonderful story of forgiveness, tolerance of those different than you and the importance of taking responsibility for those you have hurt and working to heal. This is what a Disney movie should be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking! July 16 2004
Format:DVD
This film is just absolutely wonderful. Not only will my daughter sit and watch it over and over again, but I dont' mind it, even after the 400th time! It's a movie that my husband, daughter and I can all watch as a family, and enjoy. It's cute, fun, and will hold true to Disney themes of making you laugh, cry and anticipate.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good movie Aug. 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
When I first saw the movie, I thought it was weird. My cousin started talking about it, and then I realized that it was really fascinating. People are out to comdem it like I used to, and that is sad. I'm a teenager, and they think that Disney's no longer good. Logan, if they do a sequel, it might either have Kenai die and Koda look after himself or else have one of Kenai's female friends become a bear to be his lover. Disney is predictable in some ways.
The music was awesome, but I wish Jason Raize did a song. He was talented as Simba. He could've sang the Transformation song in English, but he no longer walks the earth. The music was done in a near broadway style, meaning that it might be a broadway in a few years. With the story and humor, you could have a broadway, especially with the Transformation theme.
The story had meaning and value to it, and that's important. Even though some parts seemed to be rushed, it eventually works itself into the movie.

Movies like this is the reason why Disney as a company is doing so badly. It is not a bad movie, but the story is VERY predictable. Read more
