Brothers Grimm Review
To put it quickly, Brothers Grimm is the arthouse Van Helsing. Terry Gilliam's film is way better than that wretched piece of crap, but it still isn't any good. The film looks like a Gilliam film and the actors are all trying, but the screenplay is pointless after a decent set-up. There are a half-dozen decent laughs that are exhausted after the first thirty minutes and that leaves about ninety minutes for nothing to happen. Viewers who looooooove good art direction should get a kick out of it, but the film is giant misfire for everyone involved. Seeing the film solidifies that Harvey Weinstein knew it was bad and the only reason it was getting a release in the graveyard that is late August is because Harvey and Bob are clearing the shelf before departing Miramax.
