Younger viewers won't mind the predictable plot; others willing to overlook the film's flaws will be rewarded by thrilling glimpses into tigers' lives.

Two Brothers features some amazing wildlife cinematography and those great, almost human performances by the thirty or so tigers that were used to make the film.

... one of the most amazing animal adventure fables ever captured on film.

There's something awfully disturbing about Two Brothers, and it's not the fact that Guy Pearce is in it.

The rare family film that doesn't talk down to audiences, yet never as gripping or moving as one anticipates.

The tiger cub actors are really precious. The same can't be said of the human actors or the script.

Yes, the animals are the stars. But there's nothing cutesy about "Two Brothers," an often saddening but entertaining tale with tigers as its stars.

I would have gladly volunteered to lead all the tigers participating in this movie directly into the wilds, just to stop them 'acting' in this slow-moving, heavy-handed drama.

Pearce and the rest of the human actors seem to be an afterthought, but the film is beautiful, the grown tigers majestic and the cubs utterly adorable.

The movie can be taken as quality children's entertainment ... But the film offers much more than that.

Two Brothers may not be a great movie, but it's an unusually diverting episode of Wild Kingdom.

I don't know if people will still watch movies like Two Brothers, but I'm glad someone is still making them.

Brothers can't avoid the sappy Disney touches -- even though it comes from Universal.

Two Brothers isn't a sequel to the 1988 nature hit The Bear, yet it feels like one. It suffers from the lack of inspiration that plagues many second chapters, and it attempts to broaden the original concept to diminished effect.

You don't have to be a cat-lover to fall in love with the cuddly young tigers who star in Two Brother.
