Movie Info

Twin tiger cubs Kumal and Sangha are torn apart when their father is killed by hunter Aidan McRory (Guy Pearce). Kumal finds himself in a circus, where his spirits are broken by an abusive trainer (Vincent Scarito), while Sangha is adopted by a politician's son (Freddie Highmore) and cast aside when he attacks the family dog. The brothers struggle to survive in a world where tigers are enslaved or killed for sport, and when they inevitably meet again, it is under the worst of circumstances.

    Aidan McRory: Forgive me. Forgive me. There is nothing special about 'Two Brothers', the story of lions. I find it to be one of the most irritating films of all time, considering that we have no sympathy and don't have any interest in the films protagonists. We have great actors in this film (Guy Pierce, Jean-Jacques Annaud) but the characters they play are incredibly bland, especially Pierces character, who we don't care about what he commits or what the cost of his wrongdoings are. The scenery is unbelievably and incredibly uninteresting, as it stays the same as the film progresses. I'm trying not to bash this so hard, but I just can't help myself, never has a film been so impeccably detrimentally tedious and wearisome, that I would rather watch the 'Cheaper by the Dozen' remake than watch the opening credits of 'Two Brothers' again. Not recommended. Read more reviews at www.creedsdelight.com

    Sad yet cute. Entertaining yet stupid. Feeling good vs plot cliches. I'm not quite sure what to say. I feel stupid if I give it a positive review, but I don't think it's a bad movie per say.

    A film that comes across as a cute lovable film about animals proves to be slow and uneventful in nature.

    I found this movie to be quite entertaining and moving at the same time. The movie tells of the separation of two tiger cubs, one is sold to a circus where he is mistreated by his sadistic handlers and the other is adopted as a pet by a young boy. The story is told from the tigers' perspective and director Jean-Jacques Annaud was very successful in conveying the tiger's thoughts and feelings without the use of words. He suggests rather than display violence becausethere is surprisingly little blood in this story about hunting, though the threat of attack is clear and pervasive. I have always thought that tigers were the most regal of all the great felines and these two are the most unforgettable and so is this movie which just reinforce that the biggest danger to tigers are us and we must exercise our power responsibly, not by destroying life, but by learning to value and cherish these endangered animals living in the wild. The landscapes are impressive and the photography was amazing. A fantastic and touching movie with great performances by the Tigers who stole the show but Guy Pearce as the hunter and the little French boy weren't far behind them.
