My husband and I went to see this for a belated Valentines date movie and both enjoyed it. Unlike some of the other reviewers, we weren't looking for a serious period piece--heck, it's Hansel and Gretel, for goodness sake. The humor was campy and the violence was certainly not appropriate for the younger set (my seven year old will NOT be seeing this movie). That being said, it had a steampunk vibe similar to Van Helsing, lush landscape, and gorgeous actresses that certainly served as eye candy. All in all, a fun romp that made for a great night out.

While this movie was an interesting take on the fairy tale (which I like) and full of action (which I love), it kind of fell flat. I don't expect a fairy tale movie to be anything even remotely resembling historically accurate, but this one took anachronism to the extreme. The liberal sprinkling of the F-bomb only made it worse. I love the actors in this and the story was decent, but the overall impression was awful. I had to go watch another movie just to get this one out of my head.

I wanted to see this since I love action and fantasy. I was afraid that it would be a disappointment though. The movies was actually very good as it did not take it self too seriously with plenty of funny moments, and lots of great action. This may be too gory for younger viewers, but it is great for adults.

There were a few funny moments. The movie looked beautiful and the acting was good. There were a few key plot moments that I knew before they unfolded but it was still good.
