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

There is a lot in Two Brothers I admire. Families will not go wrong in attending this film. Some kids will think it's one of the best movies they've seen. My objections are of a sort that won't occur, I realize, to many of the viewers.

Annaud's tigers are benign.

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.

Loses its 'family film' lustre with all the tiger killing/cruelty, but manages to redeem itself in the end...recommended only as a rental.

Works best when showing the animals in nature, not dwelling on the cruelty they are forced to endure. There's an awful lot of tiger killing for an animal-lover movie.

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

Sentimental but openly corny.

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.

Astonishingly dreadful.

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

It is a good thing the tigers at the center of Two Brothers give such strong performances. Without them, the movie would be a lifeless bore.

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

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.

Animal-loving kids will think it's lovely, but it's only a mildly diverting time-waster for the rest of us.

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

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

While audiences will gasp at the audacity of using real animals instead of drawings, the tale behind the technical achievement is stale and outmoded.

Charms when the quadripeds stalk the action but creaks when the bipeds open their mouths.
