Boston Globe

Wirkola tears through Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters with such giddy abandon, it ends up being splattery fanboy fun. Preposterous, clearly,...

An intermittently fun, but overexcited and predictable mish-mash.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Stephen Farber
The film is smart enough not to wear out its welcome. But that's the only sign of true intelligence in this juvenile caper.

Even if he's slumming, Renner gets it best: his dry delivery fully acknowledges the movie's ridiculousness. If you're planning on entering...

A rarely funny spoof that's heavy on bone-crushing and blood-gushing.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is more Gatling guns and grenades than The Brothers Grimm.

The film can't be accused of taking itself seriously. Shot in 3-D, with lots of choppy action, a rudimentary plot, and plenty of...

Fun Movie

By IcyB45
Went to an advance screening of this movie and my friends and I loved it! It had laughs, blood and action. What more could you ask for? This definitely isn't a movie for the little ones so be sure to...

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

By stevendbeard
This is an action/adventure/fairy tale that is an entertaining movie , although not too historically accurate [I'm betting that the writers might have missed a few of their History classes in high...

Cool Movie

By Tomc62
Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is a funny and exciting movie. Who would've thought that a classic fairy tale would be twisted and given more suspense and action? Jermey Renner as Hansel was very...

I really enjoyed this movie. Gemma A. what a beauty. Very good actress. Jeremy R. career, very versatile. The two had good chemistry. Action moved along at a good pace. Love the twist and sensuality...

Hansel and Gretel

By isawbigfoot
Violent, entertaining, a roller coaster ride! It pushes what I have seen in these 'period' pieces. Just a little more violent, a little more 'oh my', I did enjoy it....

Very exciting Movie

By indjeff
I'm not a fan of horror movies and this one isn't your traditional horror movie, but I was concerned that I wouldn't like it. I did like it. It kept my attention to the very end. Very good movie....

Surprisingly enjoyable

By YukinaKid
Though the 'F' word was used 5 times (the only word I can't stand), the acting was actually pretty enjoyable. The plot had huge holes in it that were never really explained (or tagged as an...

Enjoyable

By dbjack

too gory, stupid, pointless, grotesque

I knew this movie would not be good and didnt want to go- but my friend insisted. we both were going to go to another one however, then I began reading some faulty and stupid reviews which changed my...

Ho Hum

By theoldbear
It seemed to be a mashup of other films. Often the weapons and action took on a Matrix like quality. The lines were too predictable. Some of the scenes were a bit out of context for their time. I...
