Not for the faint of heart if you don't tolerate decapitation and dismemberment very well. With driving metal music throughout and non-stop good versus evil action, what's not to like!
The evil elements are impaled, cut to shreds and burned up. I really enjoyed this fun flick. Hey, leave the kids at home.

This is a fun, albeit gory version of two kids wronged, now PO'd and payback has been happening for a long long time. Its fun to combine old time settings with modern day language.

I didn't expect a cinematic masterpiece, just some good action and special effects with some witty lines and a bit of storytelling. The first two were present in abundance, but the last two were absent. Gemma Arterton's performance was interesting although uninspired, and Jeremy Renner wasn't just appropriately dry but downright flat. Famke Janssen gives the most interesting performance as the evil master witch. Unfortunately there just wasn't much added to the original story except a dozen ways to kill a witch. The end of the movie leaves the door wide open for a sequel, which I'll probably skip as the most interesting character has been slain.

First off, lately the 3D effects in movies have been so so, This movie they actually had me moving out of the way to avoid getting hit. My personal opinion, I liked it. I like movies about witches and other science fiction characters. Don't take anyone else's opinion for certain. Go see movies yourself!

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!
