Christian Science Monitor - David Sterritt
Gilliam has rarely been more inventive, energetic, or just plain funny.
Village Voice - Michael Atkinson
Just as fabulously cartoon-Gothic as "Sleepy Hollow."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
If you're a Gilliam junkie, as I am, you go with it, even when the script by Ehren Kruger (The Skeleton Key) loses its shaky hold on coherence.
Premiere - Glenn Kenny
In the end it's still Gilliam Lite, but Gilliam Lite is better than no Gilliam at all.
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
Hugely ambitious but often failing to live up to those ambitions, Terry Gilliam's long-awaited The Brothers Grimm emerges as a folkloric adventure that intermittently entertains.

The Brothers Grimm (2005)

Folklore collectors and con artists, Jake and Will Grimm, travel from village to village pretending to protect townsfolk from enchanted creatures and performing exorcisms. However, they are put to the test when they encounter a real magical curse in a haunted forest with real magical beings, requiring genuine courage.
