Review: Avengers Grimm…. At first thought, one can be forgiven to think that this film would be some kind of crossover between the Avengers Movies and the TV show Grimm.
At least that is what I thought, until I started watching this.
Casper Van Dien stars as the main villain, Rumpelstiltskin. To cut a very long story short, he transports himself and Snow White (Lauren Parkinson) through the magic mirror to the modern world and ends up being the mayor of some city, with everyone under his spell… Hmmm.. Along for the chase through time is Rapunzel (Rileah Vanderbilt), Cinderella (Milynn Sarley) and Sleeping Beauty (Marah Fairclough) . They team up with Red Riding Hood to defeat Rump and his legion of slaves.
Interesting concept for a movie. I will say the title and movie poster was more appealing than the actual movie, hence why after 30 minutes of this I switched it off. I can only imagine the number of outtakes this film has, with each of the actors trying to take their role seriously. 🙂
As far as B-Grade flicks go, this was okay, but there are better B flicks to see.
Verdict: A Grimm movie indeed! 🙂
My Rating: 5 out of 10
