The Brothers Grimm Reviews

Luke Goodsell
Empire Magazine Australasia

At times this fanciful romp lurches uneasily between violence, slapstick comedy and sublime escapism - in other words, it's pure Gilliam.

Wide-eyed, messy, lustrous, rich with enchantment, both giddy and perverse

The only redeeming feature is the hope that [director Terry Gilliam's] salary from The Brothers Grimm,/i> will help him set up a good, old-fashioned Gilliam film, in the tradition of his excellent early work.

The movie feels thoroughly like a project Gilliam did halfheartedly, just to stay in the game.

Princeton Town Topics

A disjointed, ear-splitting, visually-jarring, mirthless exercise in pandemonium that director Terry Gilliam tries to pass off as family entertainment.

Eye for Film

everyone involved in the production appears to have become lost in the dark woods, hoping somehow to find their way out with an incoherent trail of compromises.

Prairie Miller
Long Island Press

As magical as classic fairy tales may seem to be, a winking Gilliam is out to prove here that to a profoundly superstitious, stressed out early 19th century world, those legends were as frighteningly real as any documentary or even reality show today.

It's hard to imagine whom the filmmakers had in mind for this lavish production.

It's a slog, an out-of-control fantasy that's strangely unenchanting and, in the end, rather tiresome.

Una aventura cómica y liviana, que se beneficia de la imaginación visual del director Terry Gilliam.

There is much in this film to admire, but it goes by too fast and the story is almost incomprehensible. There is certainly enchantment here, but the story does not do much to hold it together.

The movie is at least twice as good as most people say it is and about half as good as we'd all hoped it would be.

Perfect family entertainment and undoubtedly well worth seeing, but somewhat of a let down.

...darkly amusing, often entertaining and overwhelmingly bizarre. Ultimately, the film gets bogged down in its own adventurous aspirations, although it looks a treat with splendid production design and fantastic effects.

The Brothers Grimm has its moments, but it's ultimately a very flawed film and capsizes under the weight of some hammy performances and a poorly-conceived script.

Gilliam has a history of blaming studios when his films go wrong. But he has no one to blame but himself for this poisoned apple.

Perfect material, you might think, for Terry Gilliam's brain of perpetual invention. But despite occasional flashes of dark genius, he hasn't laid a golden egg.

I wish the plot were pared down, that the magic used more sparingly. But new movies offer us so little, it seems daffy to complain that this one gives us too much.
