Though Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm hasn't had the best start with early reviews, the latest post is, well, ok. Though it does mention some very low budget special effects in the latter half of the film, the review gives its praise on the characters and the story [but not the ending].

Brothers Grimm Movie Review

Quint over at AICN has recently posted his early review for The Brothers Grimm starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. One of the great things about the latest review is that it really dives in on the goods and bads to this latest Gilliam project without letting slip any spoilers. Check out a snippet below:

The strengths of the film are Gilliam's work with a great cast, the amazing production design and Gilliam's trademarked weirdness on display throughout the movie. The weaknesses are some really terrible "pull you out of the movie" CG effects and an ending that doesn't make any sense with what is set up and seems to just be there to give it a happy ending, the lapse in logic be damned! There are also moments throughout that show weakness in Ehren Kruger's script, but he's got a strong enough subject that I found them easy enough to overlook.

That's about it. Go support Gilliam this weekend, but brace yourself for a flawed movie that has enough Gilliam in it to make your ticket purchase not feel like charity.

Even with the reviews that claim the film to be 'flawed', The Brothers Grimm still looks to be one of those rare films that deserve a theatre visit.

The Brothers Grimm comes to theatres this Friday, August 26th.
