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 school] . It sort of reminded me of the 2011 remake of 'The Three Musketeers' [with Milla Jovovich] where they have gadgets and weapons that were not in those time periods , but they are kind of neat [and let's face it , this is not a documentary] . Anyway , the story covers what happens after the original fairy tale of Hansel & Gretel , when the kids are all grown up . Jeremy & Gemma play the adult witch killers that have made a business out of killing witches and travel from town to town , selling their witch killing skills [kind of like bounty hunters] . Peter plays the sheriff in a witch-infested town . The leader of the witches is played by Famke , the biggest and the baddest witch around . This is not for the little kiddies [language, nudity, violence] .

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 leave them at home. Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton did a fantastic job as the title characters Hansel and Gretel.

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 good and I like his sense of humor, I look forward to see him in future movies. Aslo actress Gemma Arterton was impressive as Gretel.

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.

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 of the movie fairy tale. Go see and enjoy. I wouldn't take the youngsters.
