Beautiful animations, but I do not recommend this movie for children under 8. Here’s why -

Saw this movie this afternoon with 4 children: Ages 9,7,6 &5. Three girls and one boy. Was the 3D version. Way too frightening for ALL! Had to leave the theater due to the real-life appearance of the grizzly bears and attack scenes, two out of three children in tears. There was probably 15-20 minutes remaining, and should have left sooner.I agree with AndresUpdyke - and even 8 yrs may be too young…

Saw movie with an 8 and a 6 year old females.  Both were very scared at bear scene.  Both in tears.  End of movie, both girls in tears over mom/daughter fall out and make up.  Both girls WOULD NOT recommend this movie.

I took my son to see this in the theater when he was 3. The bear scene scared him, but not to the point of tears. He was a little young to sit through and entire movie at that time, but he lost interest about half-way through. We tried watching it again at home this year, but he still was not interested. The bear was still to scary for him. He loves Cars and Toy Story so I think Brave had too much dialogue. He was just not interested in the mother-daughter relationship. I think this would be a great movie for older girls who would not be afraid of the bear.

Saw it with my 6-year-old daughter in the theater, and she was afraid of bears for months afterward (going camping later that summer didn’t help).  Older children won’t be as frightened, and will remember all of he funny moments more.
