(Film Review) The Brothers Grimm

Well, less of a review and more of a statement of personal feeling.

The Brothers Grimm is possibly one of the worst films I've seen in a very long time. I know it got slated by critics as well as many of my friends when it came out at teh cinema but I wanted to see it as I am a big fan of Terry Gilliams work (especially Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen).

Big mistake.

I'm not sure if I can say anything redeeming about it at all.

The script was in the most part dreadful, as was the acting, and even the set designs and special effects were found wanting in my opinion.

I guess my redemption can be that I didn't pay much for it on ex-rental DVD and I should be able to make a few quid of that back when I put it up for sale on ebay or somewhere.

School Report: E (and that's probably being generous)

(EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I actually ended up fast forwarding through various bits of it. Yes, I felt it was 'that' good...)
