Love fairy tale stories and this one was action packed! No, it was not realistic or practical but what fairy tale is? It's a fairy tale people! As in fantasy.
Loved the 3D effects! If you go see it try and see it in 3D, you won't be sorry! It is NOT a movie for young kids but I did take my 15 year old son, who at times can be skeptical of movies such as this, and he LOVED it as much as I did!
Go with a open mind and I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised!

I would definitely recommend seeing this movie. It is rated R because the killing of the witches is real gory and there is cursing, but no crazy sex scenes.... you can take a teenage kid to watch it.

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.

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.

This was not the story from my childhood, no . It was way better!!!
The 3D actually had me flinch a few times and the storyline was pretty well written. The witches and their broomsticks were awesome.
If you want a fun entertaining evening. While this movie is definately not for children, due to the violence and language.You got to go and it doesn't matter if it's a date or with friends or even by yourself.You won't be disappointed for this was one Cool Flick !!!
