The Brothers Grimm
When it was first announced that The
Brothers Grimm was beginning production, the cult-style
hype around the film couldn't have been larger. But then Dimension went
forth and changed the release date so many times in each direction that
people immediately began to lose interest. To turn the tide, Dimension struck
back with a trailer that looked at least interesting and a set of rad looking
Brothers Grimm posters. But after doing that they pushed the release
date for the film back one more time, again bringing more doubts into our
Well, The Brothers Grimm has just entered the less - than - a -
month - to - go mark and it looks like the latest release date, August 26th,
is here to stay. It is also nice to hear that Dimension is allowing people
to finally view and review the film, including the good people over at AICN.
The Brothers Grimm Review
The review over at AICN
seems to be more of a review for Terry Gilliam [director] than The Brothers
Grimm, but it should give you a good idea of what to expect when you
head to theatres on the weekend of the 26th. Check out a snippet of The
Brothers Grimm review below:
And on that level, I enjoyed THE BROTHERS GRIMM, the most nakedly commercial and impersonal film that Gilliamís ever made. The film is obvious, just to the edge of crass, and thatís got to be due to the thick-headed script by Ehren Kruger. Itís one of the worst scripts Iíve seen this year, mechanical and lifeless from the set-up.
THE BROTHERS GRIMM isnít a great film, but even here, there is considerable evidence of the enormous talent that continues to make Gilliam one of the most interesting filmmakers alive. Itís worth seeing at least once, on the biggest screen available, when it opens August 26th.
