Em vários momentos, Gilliam parece se preocupar mais com o efeito do que com a eficácia de sua história.

Gilliam's movies aren't mere throwaway diversions... they plug themselves right into the collective psyche and gleefully pull out the stuffing...

Inconsistent and painfully rote.

The fairy tale-spinning Brothers are recast as faux ghost-busters in Terry Gilliam's muddled medieval mediocrity.

A mishmash of a film that flies off in far too many different directions.

Until the plot goes wrong, this is a thoroughly entertaining period romp

[W]hile it has a handful of solid laughs, just as many of the film's gags fall flat.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the most undisciplined director of them all?

In refusing easy categorization, the film at least flirts with greatness, and occasionally achieves it.

It's ironic that a movie whose central characters are two of the world's greatest storytellers should be so careless in telling its own story.

a film overflowing with cool sets and special effects, yet it's also rather emotionally unengaging, something that has plagued Gilliam all throughout his career.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Terry Gilliam is as unable to make an uninteresting movie as he is unable to make a "commercial" film...[but this] feels the most commercial and least Gilliamesque to me.

Kruger may put in his best script, but Gilliam does everything in his power to demystify it with wackiness!

Maybe they should have cast Affleck with Damon and called it "Bad Grimm Haunting"
