Great way to play with the tales of old. Even in this strange story might be more truth than the weak storys now told to children.

Beautiful art direction and production but a script full of holes, mistakes and unfunny jokes.

Terry Gilliam is a sick little moo-cow, if you ask me....but a brilliant one, albeit a former Monty Python-ite who garners little success outside of directing.

"The Brothers Grimm" by Yojimbo

Terry Gilliam once again puts his post modern spin on Gothic fantasy, and once again it's very much a matter of taste as to whether you are going to enjoy it. The Brothers Grimm are reinvented as a pair of con artists who set up fake hauntings and ride into town to banish the demon for a modest fee (kind of like a Medieval Ghostbusters). Until one day they are caught and sent to investigate a series of child kidnappings and realise that it's the real deal. All of Gilliam's trademark touches are here including a lot of humour, some gorgeous production design and a quirky spin on existing myths and fairytales. It's kind of like a buddy action version of his heroic failure The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen and Heath Ledger and Matt Damon have some real comic chemistry as the bumbling anti-h...
