The film “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” centers around the close knit duo of Hansel (played effortlessly by Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (played in an incredible way by Gemma Arterton). Both Hansel and Gretel are pretty much forced into a life of being witch hunters after they dare to eat from a secluded candy house in the forest. I enjoyed the fact that Hansel and Gretel were created as characters of a brother and sister who stand by each other through good and challenging times. Hansel and Gretel’s character evolutions are indirectly shaped by a discreet white witch named Mina (played in a heartfelt way by Pihla Viitala) and a troll named Edward. In all fairness, Famke Janssen also played her witch character in a convincing fashion and in a way that also helped strengthen the tight bond that Hansel and Gretel have. “Hansel and Gretel” is fine for those who are ok with watching films that mash fantasy and dark comedy in the plots.

I throught this movie was going to be bad turns out I was wrong it was completely great but wild and I had know That there mother was known as the white witch and growing up with grimm fairytales such as Hansel and Gretel and others(Yes I use to read Grimm Fairytales) this by far the wildest one yet.

Loved this movie. It had a great mixture of humor, horror, and action. They did a great job at telling the Hansel and Gretel fairytale. I liked the movie version better than the storybook version. I am not one to pay big bucks at theaters to watch a movie. But I had heard great things and now I agree...it was worth it!

Not the Fairy Tale your Mother told to you, IT's BETTER!!!!!!! This movie is the perfect combination of Action and Drama with a sprinkle of Comedy to create a Magical Mystical nightmare world for adults.The storyline draws you in and the acting keeps you waiting for the next twist of terror. The cinematography in 3D is of stellar quality.This movie makes me hope for a sequel.
