Synopsis


The Brothers Grimm
Two men who have made a career out of spinning remarkable stories find themselves bringing them to life in this inventive fantasy inspired by the creators of some of the world's best-loved fairy tales. Will Grimm (Matt Damon) and his brother Jake Grimm (Heath Ledger) earn their living by traveling from village to village and vanquishing strange supernatural beasts that have been menacing the populace. Or at least that's what their clients think has been happening; as it happens, Will and Jake are confidence men who cleverly stage the ghostly attacks and then take payment for making the creatures they fabricated go away. One day, the brothers arrive in a town and offer to help its people drive away evil spirits, unaware that the community is bordered by a genuine enchanted forest, and that young girls in the village have been disappearing at a frightful rate. The Grimm Brothers must now learn how to deal with real magic, with the help of the lovely but fearless Angelika (Lena Headey). Directed by Terry Gilliam, The Brothers Grimm also stars Monica Bellucci, Peter Stormare, and Jonathan Pryce. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Travelling conmen Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm convince naive country folk that demons are making mischief in their villages - and then charge the gullible yokels for getting rid of the phoney beasts. However, their scam catches up with them when they are tasked to find some missing children by a local governor - leading to an encounter with a real witch in an enchanted wood.

    This is movie is like watching one of the Grimm's fairytales come to life. Their stories are much darker than Disney's versions and this is reflected in the movie. This movie is good for older children and adults and is entertaining. The movie captivates and is well worth the time spent.

    This was a great twist on the classic stories brought together from the far reaches of Europe by the Grimm Brothers. My kids were entertained as they learned that the Grimm Brothers first brought to the world many of the famous Disney classic movies/stories.

    I think this is a fun movie and bought it because it was a good price and it came with a digital copy so that I can watch it while I ride public transit. Fun, funny, scary and all in all an ok movie that I am willing to watch more than once.

    if you can understand the British mumble, or was it Scottish - I just couldn’t tell, then it has some interesting scenes and concepts. rather dark view of things, maybe it would be good around Halloween. I was disappointed.

    I really enjoyed the idea of the story behind the stories we grew up with. The beginning of the movies is just fun and trickery. Then the brothers get more serious and the movie a bit more dark. Beautifully done.

    I bought this movie because I remembered it being really good when I watched it as a younger person. It wasn't as good as I remembered and I almost fell asleep at times. Good watch at least once though:)
