Stunningly beautiful, but too intense for little kids.

The very definition of harmless, watchable entertainment. Exactly whether or not that is good enough depends on who you are.

I defy any animal lover not to tear up with Kumal and Sangha reunite, even if it is a little faux.

It's that rare kind of comedy -- simple humor based on personalities, behavior, and folly .... rather than forced through crass punchlines or annoying sidekicks.

[A] heartbreaking fable of friendship, family ties, and the human impact on the natural world...

Annaud's methods are misleading which undermine his admirable intent.

The overall quality and timelessness of Two Brothers will guarantee it a long future.

As with The Bear much of the plot is carried by animal photography, though this film has considerably more human plot. A good family film, and a moving experience.

This is a family movie on a grand scale, enhanced by lush cinematography and throbbing music, with a minimum of dialogue and an endless assortment of thrills.

It's undoubtedly good-natured, old-fashioned family entertainment, but Two Brothers never quite manages to strike a successful balance between fantasy and reality.

The kind of movie that kids used to flock to on Saturday afternoons in the forties and fifties.

Although the lulled pacing of Two Brothers could put an insomniac in slumber land, the film's leading felines are more captivating than most high-paid Hollywood stars.

Watching Kumal and Sangha, some viewers may even be reminded of lines from Blake's famous poem 'The Tyger': 'What immortal hand or eye/Could frame thy fearful symmetry?'

Noteworthy because it represents a kind of fevered moviemaking insanity that we rarely see these days.

Teems with life and a rather beautiful simplicity when Annaud focuses squarely on the tiger cubs - but then the humans come crashing in to make a mess of things.

I was put off by the way the movie anthropomorphizes the tigers.
