The Brothers Grimm DVD Review

The Brothers Grimm were born in Germany and historically have become known as the two of the greatest storytellers of all time. The latest Hollywood blockbuster about this pair takes a fictional look at their lives, set before they began writing their famous tales. Get the goods on this mystical movie!

The Brothers Grimm - Who Ya Gonna Call?

Set in 19th century Germany, the movie introduces The Brothers Grimm not as artful storytellers but as two-bit con artists who travel from small town to small town, concocting stories of ghosts, witches and goblins in order to dupe the villagers into paying them to rid their homes of these evil creatures. Soon though, the French army (which has invaded Germany) catches onto the brothers lies and arrests them. Their options are death or to take on a task of eliminating a real witch from a haunted forest who has been kidnapping young girls from the town of Marbaden.

The Brothers Grimm - The Enchanted Forest

The Brothers Grimm are willing to do anything to avoid being executed, so they take the task of capturing the evil witch without hesitation. They think this mission will be a piece of cake, but soon after they enter the haunted forest, they realize things aren't always as they appear. Both Matt Damon and Heath Ledger play the parts of adventurers perfectly - and Heath Ledger's character, Jacob Grimm, even gets a little lovin' from the local huntress!

The Brothers Grimm - Spectacular Special Effects

One of the best things about this flick is the visual effects. For the whole two hours of the film, you are transported into a fantasy world that is just amazing. From the enchanted trees to the goblins and ghouls, everything just pops out and takes you on a crazy journey!

Find out what director Terry Gilliam was thinking when he made this fairy tale flick with optional commentary. Watch deleted scenes and see how this magical story was brought to life with a Visual Magic of The Brothers Grimm featurette.

The Brothers Grimm - Bottom Line
The Brothers Grimm isn't exactly your average fairy tale. There's definitely lots of magic, mystery and surprises, but it's a little darker than Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs. Younger sibs may be a bit freaked out by all the craziness, so you might wanna check out this flick with some friends or the 'rents first! A must see though for anyone who is a fan of fantasy stories.
