Somewhat surreal, and occasionally strangely funny, GRIMM gives us a modern version of the Grimm fairy tale about Handsel & Gretel. An early scene--featuring a table, a wall, the brother, sister and their captors--is probably the movie's highlight. It happens a bit early in the game, however, after which the scene, language, temperature and tone all change from Holland to Spain--and warm up considerably in the process.

Performances, writing and directing are OK, but the movie manages to seem both overcooked and underdone--and too reminiscent of others from the past decade or two. (If I'm not mistaken, the ghost-town set for the finale is the same one used by Alex de la Iglesia in "800 Bullets.") Finally, there's nothing all that interesting or special here, as well as no characters you come to care much about.
