I enjoyed it a lot. You have to leave old "Aunt Martha" outside and let you inner kid enjoy it. Lots of Witch-Fu action scenes. Beautiful special effects and great characters. I'd love to see a sequel. I'll go back to see it in 3D if I get a chance. I'm just not paying $16+. They got to bring down those ticket prices. Very sparce attendence in the whole theater. Cut the ticket-prices and fill the theaters. But go see this one if you like fantasy adventures.

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.

Not great, by any means, but Gemma and Jeremy have good chemistry and it's a fun concept. The *!! critics will hate it but I definitely enjoyed it.

What could have been a fun, interesting twist on the fairy tale became a graphic gore-fest a la Freddie Kruger. There is no point in talking about acting, plots or anything else. I am not particularly squeamish and I found it hard to watch. If movie making has come to this people will stay home and rent something, anything, better.

This movie proves, once and for all, that you can make a special-effects-heavy action movie out of anything. The children's tale of Hansel and Gretel seems like a likely candidate for story massacring, but it just doesn't work here. The witches are turned into magic-wielding villans who fly around and kill children for ritual sport. I sat back in my seat in amazement at how bad this movie was and yet no one in the theater was leaving, including myself. I supposed we were all glued to the seat with shock. There's no other explanation.
