One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Walked out of the theatre after the kitten incident. Can't imagine that it improved after that...

So very disappointed in Terry Gilliam. I used to be able to rely on him as a storyteller. This tale had such promise, having many elements I love, but it soured fairly quick, then lost me. There was a definite lack of continuity. As usual, though, brilliant eye with the camera. It's sad, this could have been very good.

not nearly as bad as Tideland

I'd that this film was a bit of a trainwreck but as a big Terry Gilliam fan I felt I had to check it out and judge for myself. Alas, the general consensus that the movie was a disappointment is, if anything, generous. I won't produce a tedious list of the film's defects, but in my view the biggest problems began in casting. The usually dependable Swedish actor Peter Stormare, for example, as an Italian torturer and assassin, was just embarrassing, and Lean Headley as the love interest was not convincing in her "maiden of the forest" role. Even Jonathan Pryce, consummate scenery masticator that he is, gives a career low turn out as "Zee French generrall". In sum, the tone is too scary for small children but the plot and performances too insipid for adults- to be avoided.

Great the way Terry Gilliam takes the world of fairy tales & spins his own medieval yarn. Some of the characters are hillarious as well as the scenery and set designs throughout.

entertaining. My 7 and 8 year olds liked it but I would not recommend it for younger ones - a bit too scary.
