The Brothers Grimm

The Brothers Grimm
Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are famous for getting rid of the creatures that plague villages throughout Germany. But when their actual rouse is discovered by Delatombe, they find that they must face his wrath or find out who’s behind the disappearances of the children of a small village. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Brothers Grimm”.

∙ Jacob and Will arrive at the village of Marbaden. They get out coach/carriage they were riding in and stretch. Will asks if there’s “anyone there” and in the back view of Jacob, his right arm is stretched up. It cuts to a quick front view of Jacob and both arms are elevated.

∙ Jacob, Will, Angelika and the others are in the forest. When the French soldier is attacked, Jacob and Will start to run. During this time, Angelika has encountered the wolf in the forest. However, in the next view of the brothers, Angelika is running with them. When did she catch up with them?

∙ Jacob is trying to climb up on the roof of the tower. From the far view (from the ground looking up), he is shown placing his right arm and elbow on top of the head of the gargoyle statue. In the following side view, Jacob’s right arm is still near the gargoyle’s mouth and he puts his arm on the head again before finally pulling himself up.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! Toward the end of the movie, when Jacob is in the tower, the Mirror Queen throws him against the wall. He can be seen with the knife in his right hand and the rope made of hair around his waist. Will begins to climb up and when he finally makes it inside and grabs the knife, the rope can still be seen around Jacob’s waist. But, in the next view, when Jacob is shown, the rope is gone.

“The Brothers Grimm” (2005) was directed by Terry Gilliam and stars Matt Damon, Heath Ledger, Lena Headey, Monica Belluci, Jonathan Pryce, Peter Stormare and MacKenzie Crook. It runs 118 minutes and is rated PG-13 for violence, frightening sequences and brief suggestive material.
