Classic tale done poorly

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.

It was a little on the lite side....

Although the movie had good fight scenes and special effects, the plot was a little thin and underdeveloped. At some points it was annoying and predictable. In spite of this, I really liked the twist to the classic fairytale. This movie is a cross between Snow White and The Huntsman, Van Helsing and Red Riding Hood.

I went to this expecting little and I was surprised at how entertained I was. The time flew by and my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved that Gretel was such a strong female role and the two of them worked very well together.

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!

This movie was a lot of fun. It was definitely in the Van Helsing style. Modern action and language set in the past. It's something I personally like, but it's not for everyone. Gretel is definitely hott and sassy.
