Hansel and Gretel: witch hunters that pack a punch...and a joke

Okay, I'm biassed. I like Renner. I think he has a screen presence that forces a movie to be fun. His performance here is not, let's say, The Town. But he dominates the movie, as does Fammke as the big bad witch. The movie has a B-movie feel with a big budget slap. The script is borderline good, using modern english in an old world backdrop, but it works here. The effects are better than good, but not quite great. The 3D is fun with bits of blood, arrows, and witch goo flying from the screen into your lap. And the movie is quite predictable. Okay, very predictable. But it added a little tension waiting for the inevitable and caused roars of laughter from the punch lines and fun witch explosions. This movie was a great escape from fiscal government headlines and gun hating rhetoric that dominates mainstream media - it came to theaters at a good time. I say go see it, bask in the violence and fantasy, watch hot chicks battle and witch gore flow.

Which Witch is Which?

A very action packed movie. I saw it in 3D and enjoyed it. There were some parts that I would consider slow. But overall, I'd say it was good. I would not recommend for kids to see as there are some gory parts. I think that the writing could have better. The acting, directing, and cinematography were good. Slow start, slow in the middle; but when it picked up; I found it enjoyable. On a 5 star rating system: I give it 3.75.

Good twist on the classic tale with some nice action

If you want to enjoy Hansel & Gretel With Hunters, I recommend going in expecting a somewhat mindless action flick. Nothing will be thought provoking here, butt certainly some fun to be had as they retell the classic fairy tale with some new twists.

Definitely NOT Your Childhood Fairy Tale!

Great storyline and visual effects. Healthy amount of gore and swearing with a peppering of nudity. Nice action flick, but DO NOT bring the kids! I thought the costuming and makeup could have been done a little better and there might have been a plothole or two, but overall a really well-done movie.

Good Saturday Night

The movie was funny with a lot of good action scenes. I was entertained for a couple of hours which is what you want in a movie. Critics don't like things that don't make us contemplate our existence. Its not that. Its a fun way to spend a Saturday.
