Don't expect a fairy tale -- this story is for teens and adults.

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.

Movie Metropolis

This odd stew of fairy tale allusions and Scooby-Doo mystery-solving is rescued by a plot that's just good enough and acting and special effects that, for all the movie's flaws, are dazzling enough to make it worth watching.

DVD features rarely make a movie better, and The Brothers Grimm is no exception

More attention to adventure and less distraction from the backstory would have made "The Brothers Grimm" a rip-roaring piece of fun. What this movie needs is a directors cut version -- one that takes out the unnecessary rather than includes even more dele

Though beautifully filmed, The Brothers Grimm can at times play rather lifelessly.

Like all Gilliam films, Brothers Grimm is never less than interesting; it's just less than inspired.

Deeply disappointing and a waste of both Matt Damon and Heath Ledger's talent!

There are 12 deleted scenes, many of which are fun and give you a lot more insight to the characters.

...there are enough good bits in The Brother Grimm to make parts of it entertaining and amusing. The viewer may come away frustrated but hardly bored.
