    This is a terrible terrible movie! Tied with Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy as the worst in the world in my opinion....this has absolutely no substance, no underlying plot, and is in NO WAY faithful to the original tales...this movie is practically a parody of itself just as hitchikers was. Do not watch this movie unless you want to get trolled by stupidity and utter, utter ****

  1. Unfortunately, although Gilliam has always had a taste for the outre, he has allowed it to get out of hand here and swallow the picture whole. There's an excessiveness, an unwelcome too-muchness to "Grimm's" creepy moments.
  2. It's a barrage of visual stimulation so excessive that it's hard to sort it all out. But it's often funny, its texture can be breathtaking and its pleasures likely will grow with repeated viewings.

    Brothers never catches fire the way Gilliam's "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" did. And you almost feel during subpar special effects that sweaty stagehands are pushing the trees around.
