I ENJOYED THE MOVIEN VERY MUCH. IT WAS GREAT AND FILLED WITH ACTION. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT FOR SMALL CHILDREN OR CHILDREN UNDER 13, THE VIOLENCE IS VERY GRAPHIC.

Fun movie. Lots of action. Nice twist at the end. In my town, it's already a big hit with high school and college kids. My two college-aged daughters loved it. Definitely not a movie for young children. Witches are pretty scary even for adults.

My prediction: Hansel & Gretel will not be nominated for Best Picture. That said, it is and over-the-top, entertaining and action packed good time. This is by far the most interesting and inspiring portrayal of witches since the Wizard of Oz. The fight scenes are fast-paced and incredibly well done. My only complaints are that 1) towards the end it seems a bit rushed, and 2) there could have been more relationship and chemistry established between Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton). Arterton totally steals the show with by alternating her foul mouth and blunt wit with lilting girliness and vulnerability.

Special effects, make-up, fantasy, lots of action, cinematography make this a very good movie by MGM/Paramount. Metro Goldwyn Mayer has been the best, or one of the best, along with Warner Bros. and 21st Century Fox for many, many years.

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!
