Boston Globe

Wirkola tears through Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters with such giddy abandon, it ends up being splattery fanboy fun. Preposterous, clearly,...

An intermittently fun, but overexcited and predictable mish-mash.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Stephen Farber
The film is smart enough not to wear out its welcome. But that's the only sign of true intelligence in this juvenile caper.

Even if he's slumming, Renner gets it best: his dry delivery fully acknowledges the movie's ridiculousness. If you're planning on entering...

Washington Post

A rarely funny spoof that's heavy on bone-crushing and blood-gushing.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is more Gatling guns and grenades than The Brothers Grimm.

It was decent.

By tmb6666
I think it was a good telling for the Hansel and Gretel fairytale and you actually got to go a little bit deeper with it. The 3D was fantastic! I would say it's a must see but I think the average...

Good (not great) graphics wasted on terrible acting, could be somewhat attributed to very bad lines (writing). Missed opportunity on a good story idea. Not even a good video choice....

A blast

By cdecoro
Yes, it's corny. Yes, it's absurdly anachronistic. But it's also a blast of an action movie. Don't go in expecting to see any Oscar-winning performance. But if you like action movies, you will be...

Not only is the story plot absolutely brilliant in creativity and style, but seeing this movie in 3D was actually the best work I've seen! For the first time EVER, I was actually ducking from...

Hansel and Gretel

Not like Lincoln, More like Lincoln Vampire Slayer

To be honest I wasn't expecting this to be so campy. I think so many movies now are "epic" I just went into this movie expecting that, which was silly of me. So take a breath, think of how well you...

Childrens story turned bad ass
