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.

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!

I love this type of movie, but this one was horrible! Haven't been so disappointed in a movie in a long time. Can't believe they actually made this movie. It could have been great, but sadly it was a flop! Wait until its released on TV for free.

This was a fun movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. No Oscars here, but a rocking good time will be had. It's ripe for future adventures and I for one will buy those tickets.

This is a movie that really made no sense. The story line wasn't put well. Waste of money. Save your time and watch it on Netflix.
