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.
Two Brothers is an odd crossbreed: documentary-style nature film, broad comedy, environmental sermon and Disney wannabe. But the awesome aww-power of its irresistible tiger cubs smooths its unevenness.
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.
The story never reaches the heart-pounding heights that Mr. Annaud so obviously intended, but there is both sentiment and fun along the way, and the feline brethren move with expected grace and majesty.
