Two mischievous twin tiger cubs live a carefree life in an exotic jungle amidst beautiful ancient ruins. But one day, an act of fate forces them apart, as one is sold off to the circus and the other becomes the pampered pet of a governor's son.

Stunningly beautiful, but too intense for little kids.

Fresh: The kind of movie that kids used to flock to on Saturday afternoons in the forties and fifties.
- Alan Niester, Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 3, 2004
Fresh: Two Brothers is an odd crossbreed: documentary-style nature film, broad comedy, environmental sermon and Disney wannabe. But the awesome aww-power of its irresistible tiger cubs smooths its unevenness.
- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Friday, June 25, 2004
Fresh: I defy any animal lover not to tear up with Kumal and Sangha reunite, even if it is a little faux.

Heartbreaking and wonderful all at the same time. Great film.

I found this movie to be quite entertaining and moving at the same time. The movie tells of the separation of two tiger cubs, one is sold to a circus where he is mistreated by his sadistic handlers and the other is adopted as a pet by a young boy. The story is told from the tigers' perspective and director Jean-Jacques Annaud was very successful in conveying the tiger's thoughts and feelings without the use of words. He suggests rather than display violence becausethere is surprisingly little blood in this story about hunting, though the threat of attack is clear and pervasive. I have always thought that tigers were the most regal of all the great felines and these two are the most unforgettable and so is this movie which just reinforce that the biggest danger to tigers are us and we must exercise our power responsibly, not by destroying life, but by learning to value and cherish these endangered animals living in the wild. The landscapes are impressive and the photography was amazing. A fantastic and touching movie with great performances by the Tigers who stole the show but Guy Pearce as the hunter and the little French boy weren't far behind them.

A cute film about tigers suddenly ups a notch with Guy Pearce's entrance into the arena. Young Freddie Highmore also impresses. Everyone will get something from this film. This especially goes for those who love The Jungle Book, tigers and cute animals doing cute things. The locations are incredible as well, particularly Angkor Wat. Oddly emotional and family friendly. Except, wait for the little footnote at the end of the film, very poignant.
