Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average The movie is astonishing in its photography of the two tigers, played by an assortment of trained beasts, augmented by CGI. It is less wondrous in its human story,...

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Borderline amazing and borderline dull at the same time, Jean-Jacques Annaud's Two Brothers is a tough movie to quantify. It's either a children's movie for adults or an adult movie for children, with scenes to dazzle kids and others that could make them fidgety, though never to 'I wanna go hoooomme' extremes.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 66 moviegoer opinions. There wasn't a great turnout for this movie, which is a shame. It's a wonderful family film. Children loved it, which is certainly no surprise. It has lots of tiger time to keep the little ones entertained.

About three-quarters of the older moviegoers rated it "Very Good" or higher with a good percentage rating it either "Excellent" or "Fantastic," which is great. Nearly all of the remaining third rated it "Good," which for this simple family film is still quite good.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "TWO BROTHERS" FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Twin tiger cubs, one shy and gentle, the other, bold and fierce, are born among the temple ruins of an exotic jungle, but are one day separated by fate. The bold brother is sold off to a circus, where homesickness and living in a cage rob him of his spirit. The shy cub becomes the beloved companion of the governor's lonely young son, until an accident forces the family to give him away to a man who resolves to break his gentle nature and turn him into a fighter for sport. When they are fully grown, the brothers find themselves reunited, but as forced enemies pitted against each other.
