Good action, has comical parts to it, actors did a good job but the backside nudity and some un-needed language...let's face it, back in that time period I don't think that the 'f' bomb would have been part of the language of the day...keeps me from suggesting an automatic go or must go. I was entertained and dismayed at the same time. The movie would have been just as good, if not better, without the nudity and language.

This movie is all it promises to be, an decent fantasy action movie. The dialogue was nothing of substance, but if you're looking at going to this movie that's not really what you'd care about anyhow. It wasn't the Grimm story of Hansel & Gretel that we all know, but I thought it was connected well enough that it could keep the name.

I didn't really think I could enjoy a movie about a fairy tale like this, but I really did enjoy this one. Although, it's not scary at all. Pure action. A good watch if you want some gore and violence!

I give this movie a C+ rating. Overall. this movie isn't for children, and is rather violent. I especially loved the opening credit graphics. The overall sound, visuals, and soundtrack were above average, as well as the amusing story plot. Go and see this!

Ok I get it, Hollywood takes a classic fairy tale and wants to turn it into a action horror comedy thriller. Good concept, poor delivery. Really wanted to like this flick, but unfortunately, the film does not live up to the trailer. Nothing new here, lots of bone crushing and blood gushing fighting action scenes with heads getting chopped off except this time with Witches set in medieval times. Other than some nice eye candy on screen, very little chemistry at all between the leads and nothing that really draws you into the movie to make you want to give a damn about any of these characters. Jeremy Renner seems bored throughout and he wasn't the only one. Save yourself the $$ and catch this one on Cable or VOD or if you go, go with minimum expectations.
