Monster Zero’s review:
As typically disjointed and dreamlike as any Terry Gilliam film (with the now mandatory calamitous production history), with a largely improvised feel and his jarring blend of grimy urban locales and whimsical fantasy, plus a mish-mash of a cast that just about manage to work, this amps up the surreal imagery more than most Gilliam movies but manages to just about tell an endearing story amongst it all. The ending feels rushed, but despite a wobbly accent Heath Ledger is pretty darn good throughout. The additional scenes with Depp, Law and Farrell just about manage to work without undercutting Ledger's role, so as long as you don't mind your fantasy movies being a bit random, worth checking out.
