Kiara, the Brave – Movie Review

Posted on: August 13th, 2012 by Crystal

My kids recently sat down on a rainy day to watch Kiara.

 

The story behind Kiara

Dreamzone has been a peaceful and a magical kingdom under the rule of King Maximus. That’s about to change when he is captured and imprisoned by his evil brother Dreadmis. When Dreadmis unleashes his vengeance upon the kingdom, the King’s daughter, courageous Princess Kiara must conquer evil and restore harmony in Dreamzone. Together with her best friend Super Kloud, they embark on a magical journey to protect their Kingdom and bring the rightful owner back to the throne.

 

 

I thought the movie was cute.  The storyline was easy to follow and there were a few humorous moments. I think it would be best for children 5-10 years old. There is a bit of violence that may scare younger kids.  When the movie was over I asked the kids for their opinions on the movie.

 

  • I connected with Kiara about how she would do anything to protect her family and was very brave when she sets out to rescue her dad. My family is the most important thing to me and I would do the same thing. Kiara could be a great role model for younger girls. -Britany, 12 years old

 

  • Kiara and her friend Super Kloud were kinda cool. My favorite part was the fight scenes. This was not one of my favorite movies but I might watch it again. -Sean, 11 years old

 

  • I didn’t want to watch this movie at first because it was about a princess, but I am glad I did. Kiara isn’t your normal frilly princess, she is tough! I liked the sword fighting and the dragons the best.-Logan, 8 years old
