“The Brothers Grimm is a different movie than what I expected. It turned out to be similar to Big Fish in a way, but a little darker and with some awesome special effects.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWill (Matt Damon) and Jacob Grimm (Heath Ledger) start off as shysters, bamboozling local town people by setting up elaborate and u0026quot;supernaturalu0026quot; schemes and charging heavily to ward off monsters, witches or anything else.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story actually starts getting interesting when they run into an actual supernatural occurrence (or fairy tale). It seems that children have been vanishing in some u0026quot;enchanted woodsu0026quot; and the French believe it is a scam similar to ones the Grimms have pulled.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile fighting off beasts and such, The Brothers Grimm encounter people who obviously inspire stories such as Little Red Riding Hood, Jack u0026amp; The Beanstalk, Snow White and others. Altogether, things fill out quite nicely. It never comes straight out and says that Grimmu0026#39;s Fairy Tales comes from these stories but it gives the audience enough credit to figure that out on itu0026#39;s own, even though it is quite obvious.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLena Headey deserves to be mentioned as the lovely Angelika. She plays a hardened and tough hunter/trapper who helps The Grimms and is also the love interest, which I guess is expected. Also, Monica Bellucci was a good addition as the u0026quot;mirror queenu0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI enjoyed this movie quite a bit. Like I said, more than I thought I would have. The special effects were very nice. The trees move realistically like snakes. More believable than some of the giant snake movies I have seen, anyways. I can recommend this movie. If you like Tim Burton style of movies, then you should like this one as well. 8/10”
