The only reason to see it in theater is to see 3-D, it does help but there's just not enough of it for me to make it worth it, there are a few really good uses though. Cant hurt to wait for Blu-Ray.
Its fun but overall they the mix matched accents and light tone just take me out of the movie a bit, not to mention the machine guns. The gore is present but nowhere near what I thought from reading reviews. For me it was really hard to concentrate on anything but Gemma Arteron, she's so amazing.

It's a fun movie if you have a slightly morbid sense of humor. Beware though, when Hansel and Gretel kill a witch, the movie doesn't leave it to your imagination. You see all the blood and gore involved. So if you're squeamish when it comes to that kind of thing, you probably don't want to see this movie. However, if you grew up watching horror movies in all their bloody gory glory like I did, you'll likely find some of the kill scenes amusing. (Of course, this isn't a horror movie though.)
I thought the make-up on the evil witches was excellent and the troll was pretty cool. I loved the Grand Witch's costume as well. There's lots of action in the movie and it is indeed worth watching it in 3-D.

This film is what it is...a fun, action-packed adventure flick with mild frights mixed in. Jeremy Renner (as Hansel) did an admirable job, however, Gemma Arterton (Gretel) was less than believable and downright wooden to be quite honest. The 3D visuals were pretty decent but sparingly on display in my opinion. All in all, solid if not spectacular flick, probably not worth the trip to the movie theater on its own accord but worth the rent when released on Bluray/DVD.

The fight sequences are were great. Those witches were kicking Hansel and Gretal's butt. I was funny and violent at the same time. Not for children at all.

"Hansel & Gretel - Witch Hunters" was, well, bad. Bad as in: I didn't like any of the main characters; the story was thin as ice; it didn't know whether to be a tongue-in-cheek parody or a serious horror thriller (it was neither). The only character I could relate to and felt anything for was Edward the CG troll. He should have his own movie.
