This was a fun movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. No Oscars here, but a rocking good time will be had. It's ripe for future adventures and I for one will buy those tickets.

This movie was as silly as I thought it would be, so I wasn't disappointed when I got what I was expecting. The reason I went to see it was because I wanted to see something in 3D that my girlfriends and I could agree on, and no one was interested in The Hobbit or a kids movie. It was the first 3D movie I'd seen in 25 years and ZOMG, has the tech come a long way! Even the 3D previews were amazing. I enjoyed the effect so much, I sat through the credits. The tickets cost a little more but were well worth the price for the experience. I can't wait to see another 3D film!

Good acting, story, effects, and very good 3D. Only annoying thing was the use of 20th century slang in a 19th century story taking place, for the most part, in the area of Augsburg, Germany. Other anachronisms, such as an apparent use of insulin injections (seriously!) had nothing much to do with the story until the---well, you'll see why they contrived that whole thing without really needing to...
You'll see some Van Helsing-influenced gadgetry and, as you would expect, some Brothers Grimm imagery, but it's great. Well worth the money and the 85 minutes watching. Beware that the shortness of the film means that you're going to suffer twenty minutes worth of previews, etc., before the movie starts...

The special effects were great. The story was a bit too easy to figure out. It seemed to take too long to show that Gretel was in line to become a white witch.
I loved the brooms and the effects showing how the witches cast spells on their victims.

I loved it. It was a refreshing new twist on an old story. I did not expect the twist that came later in the movie. Full of action and a great escape.
