The Brothers Grimm (3 stars)

Terry Gilliam’s adventure tale centers on brothers Jake (Heath Ledger) and Will Grimm (Matt Damon), who travel from village to village posing as exterminators of mystical, magical and enchanted creatures. But their reputations are on the line when French ruler Napoleon orders the brothers to investigate the mysterious disappearances of young girls. The brothers head into a haunted forest where true evil awaits. … Jonathan Pryce co-stars.

Geoff’s Comments: While this certainly has Terry Gilliam’s touch, it’s also clear it was not left in completely in his hands. The visuals are wonderful, but the story tends to meander a bit and follows a relatively predictable path.
