This is one of those movies i am not 100% sure how to score. The movie from a critical stand point is not good. The story is all over the place, much if it making no real sense and doesn’t actually line up with the actual Brothers Grimm Stories themselves. The special effects even for the time were quite corny tho much of that was intentional admittedly for a story purpose.
Here is why I am torn, with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger the acting was great and the movie was simply a fun and entertaining experience and really that is the point of a movie in the first place. The plot holes aren’t distracting, tho they are clearly present. The characters never go thru any real building, they simply are what they are, which for the most part is fine since they are solid characters anyway. The best way of putting it is if you are looking for a deep, meaningful and insightful experience this is not the movie for you. However, if you want something fun and entertaining, this movie is an excellent choice. Best wishes and ma the gaming gods bring you glory.
