Review
Will and Jake Grimm travel the land collecting and imparting magical tales to the villages they visit, but their real money spinner is the age old con, creating elaborate scenarios whereby they rid the locals of various imagined demons of the night. This being the 19th Century and a Terry Gilliam film it is inevitable that the two are eventually confronted by the dark tales of fear and superstition that they weave. When Will and Jake arrive at one particular village they find the folk under the dark spell of an enchanted forest and woefully ill equipped to return harmony to the troubled people. The film is a strangely un-engaging fairy tale and though brimming with visual spectacle and humour in entirety it feels disjointed and scrappy. The Brothers Grimm is not without merit but it falls considerably short of the similar but masterful ‘Company Of Wolves'.
